Excel4apps makes waves in Hong Kong
There are many typical reporting challenges that impact on companies and how they are able to get the most out of their financial reporting. When it comes to solving these problems, the adoption of innovative technology is one of the most obvious answers, and is the reason why the recent Excel4apps self-hosted seminar in Hong Kong proved to be such a success.
Targeting customers in the Asian markets, and aimed at helping them to understand how such an Excel-based self-service financial analytic application could help them solve their day-to-day reporting problems, the seminar was a resounding success.
According to Raymond Mak, Director of Sales for North East Asia, the demonstration of GL Wand - Excel4apps’ award-winning Excel-based financial reporting solution for finance professionals, which is equally appropriate for Oracle E-Business Suite 11i or 12, or for SAP – was one of the highlights of the day.
“Our GL Wand tool enables highly efficient and secure financial reporting, shorter month ends, and faster refreshes with ad-hoc inquiry and drill downs,” says Mak.
He indicates that it was explained to the audience that financial reporting is similar to the way human thoughts are formed. Thinking requires neurons to continuously gather information about the internal state of the body and its external environment, evaluate this information and then coordinate activities appropriate to the situation and to the person's current needs.
“Financial reporting also requires information to be gathered from a multitude of sources, before being effectively analysed to generate the reports that help C-level executives make better business decisions. GL Wand from Excel4apps assists in the financial reporting transformation process and creates values in their reporting infrastructure such as closing the month-end in a day and allowing for real-time analysis down to transaction level.”
Mak adds that the seminar also demonstrated to customers how easily the tool can empower end users to effectively manage their organisation's financial data.
“By providing Excel-based solutions that seamlessly integrate with Oracle and SAP, we are able to give thousands of users around the world the ability to produce understandable, relevant, reliable, and comparable reports and inquiries, all with minimal user effort. This tool makes reporting considerably faster and more accurate, increasing productivity and improving collaboration across the organisation.”
“We are pleased to note that the industry leaders who attended this seminar responded positively to the content and obtained value from the various presentations, and we look forward to hosting another, similar event early in the coming year.”
