This case study of Liggett Group LLC is based on a January 2018 survey of Global Software, Inc. customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“We achieved efficiency and accuracy by creating Spreadsheet Server reports in order to rectify the following “old” processes (a few examples):
– ‘Pieced together’ reports using data from ERP reports and queries
– Retyping data from an ERP report into a spreadsheet.
– Generated report from data using a VLOOKUP populated from an ERP query not routinely updated with current information.
– Numerous organizations added their data (from the ERP) manually onto a spreadsheet and passed it along to the next organization to add their data to the spreadsheet etc.”

Addressed the following reporting challenges after implementing Spreadsheet Server:

  • Accessing applicable data
  • Rekeying data from the ERP system into spreadsheets
  • Manual, multi-step reporting processes
  • A lack of access to real-time information
  • Creating reports in a timely manner

Evaluated a BI solution before selecting Spreadsheet Server.

  • Has not used Spreadsheet Server as a replacement for Oracle Discoverer.
  • Uses the following supplemental reporting tools with Spreadsheet Server:

    • Manufacturing
    • Inventory
    • Payables/Receivables
    • Fixed Assets; and just now starting to create Cost Management queries
