July 23, 2013
Developer of Excel inquiry and reporting software Excel4apps has released the latest version of it’s flagship product, GL Wand.
GL Wand is an Excel-based financial reporting solution for finance professionals. Developed for Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) users, GL Wand Release 5 has new functionality that offers quicker installation, more flexible financial reporting, faster drilldowns, and improved refresh rates.
Budget Wand 5, a new version of Excel4apps’ budget uploading application for Oracle, is also available.
“We have taken the best functional elements from GL Wand and wrapped them into a completely new Java-based framework for our Oracle clients,” says Shaun Pendrigh, Excel4apps co-founder of and director of product development and support. “Designed exclusively for the strengths of an Oracle environment, GL Wand Release 5 is about ease of use, ease of deployment, flexibility, and speed of refreshes and drilldowns.”
GL Wand Release 5’s Java-based software deploys easily on servers with no installation required at the user level. Also, intuitive new toolbars and enhanced functionality assist financial users with building richer reports in less time.
“With zero client install, new users are up, running and creating reports faster than ever,” says Pendrigh. “And because the new release launches directly from Oracle, there are even fewer steps in the reporting process. Users can launch GL Wand Release 5 from within their secure Oracle EBS environment and automatically gain access to the new GL Wand ribbon.”
The new version of Budget Wand, Budget Wand 5, is also geared to enhance the user experience and makes the budget upload process faster and more streamlined. Users now have the option to create the required account combinations during the loading process rather than preparing them beforehand.
Current users of GL Wand and Budget Wand who are up to date on their maintenance and support contract may migrate to GL Wand 5 and Budget Wand 5 at no additional charge.
