When it comes to trying new tools for accessing and reporting ERP system data, users and IT departments may hesitate due to perceived complexity and time constraints for starting such projects. Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software for use with Oracle E-Business Suite, alleviates that concern with a new Auto Server Installation and Setup feature for its Wands 5 Suite of products – GL Wand and Reports Wand for reporting processes and Budget Wand for budget loading tasks.
“While speed and reduced complexity are advantages of the Auto Install feature, our main motivation was preventing installation errors by reducing steps,” said Michele Buson, CEO and Co-founder for Excel4apps. “Finance departments have loved our software for years, and with this new Java-based zero client-install architecture and easier installation and setup, even more CIOs, database administrators (DBAs) and applications managers will favor our products. This new process reduces the learning curve for IT personnel.”
With the initial Auto Install process, DBAs launch an integrated task that eliminates the need for copying files to servers, making configuration changes, and entering setup information. Once the server component is completed, the desired Wands 5 product(s) are available to authorized users via an Oracle Responsibility, eliminating the need to install software on user desktops. With a simple click, this zero client install makes GL Wand, Reports Wand or Budget Wand toolbars available through Excel in minutes.
The Wands 5 architecture also means that all users are running the same version and there is no need for each user to download software during an upgrade, removing another IT task. Auto Install is not only used for new installations, but also by existing customers applying upgrades with the same quick process.
