Combined Solution Helps Enterprises Leverage the Power of Excel with Higher Accuracy and Efficiency

SAN JOSE, CA – December 9, 2014 – Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based financial inquiry and reporting software for users of SAP and Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Financial software, has announced a collaborative alliance with Incisive Software, a leading provider of spreadsheet management solutions. The companies’ complementary products help businesses get more value from their existing ERP investment and reduce costs, while letting employees continue using their preferred reporting tool, Microsoft Excel, in a way that meets regulatory requirements and manages risk.

“As with our own users, Incisive Software’s customers clearly appreciate the visibility and ease-of-access that ERP data in Excel provides,” said Melissa Neal, manager, Business Development, Excel4apps. “Collaborating with Incisive provides Excel4apps users with an extra dimension of control and confidence when working with real-time ERP data accessed via our Excel-based products.”

Excel4apps is dedicated to accelerating the financial reporting and analysis process for finance and accounting staff. Through an Excel interface, the company’s flagship reporting tool, GL Wand, taps into live ERP financial data, while the Reports Wand product accesses live data from a variety of ERP modules.

“ERP Systems are used to manage critical business functions, but have no way to ensure the integrity of the data in spreadsheets,” said Steve Andreini, Director of Alliances for Incisive. “By combining Incisive’s spreadsheet risk analysis and management solutions with Excel4apps, organizations can confidently close the gap between what ERP systems provide and the added analysis that is needed for financial management and reporting in spreadsheets.”

Like GL Wand and Reports Wand, Incisive’s suite of spreadsheet risk and analysis management solutions focus on enhancing efficiency. Incisive’s solutions include:

Concourse provides automated insight into risk from the tens of thousands of spreadsheets in an organization. It offers a team-based approach to spreadsheet collaboration, management and control.

Locator enables spreadsheet discovery and risk assessment. It helps enterprises find spreadsheets on a company’s network, generate a spreadsheet inventory, and identify and rank risk.

Xcellerator helps spreadsheet users resolve errors and risks. It combines powerful error detection with investigative capabilities allowing users to comprehensively analyze spreadsheets.

Excel4Apps and Incisive will also host a joint webinar, “Take Control of Spreadsheet Risk – Tips for Bullet-proofing your Critical Excel Spreadsheets”, on December 11. To register, visit: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/918619794.
