Prior to using Spreadsheet Server, NHA’s reporting system relied heavily on the IT department to build all reports and queries through Lawson Business Intelligence. The accounting team decided they wanted to enable their users to be more independent and relieve the IT burden. NHA knew they needed a solution to improve how time consuming the process was to generate a report, to increase the efficiency of their reporting system, and a way to remove the step of continuously going back into Lawson to drill around for necessary data.
- Reduced time expended to produce a single report per school – making the process 91% faster
- Spreadsheet Server removed many steps, including drilling down within Lawson repeatedly
- Unlimited access to Global Software support via support line, email and WebEx
Spreadsheet Server converts Excel into a tightly integrated analytical tool for any ERP system. Users can leverage the strength of their spreadsheets with seamless dynamic integration to their information, along with powerful drilldown capability to the lowest level of detail. It allows users to build a range of reports from simple ad hoc workbooks to complex dashboard-type views of critical business data.
Distribution Manager automates the distribution of reports from Microsoft® Excel.
National Heritage Academies is able to use Spreadsheet Server for use with Lawson for creating all of their monthly reports and for automating sending them to each school directly. Getting ACH payments to vendors has become a hassle-free task and NHA is now able to connect tables themselves in order to get more in-depth information. They can now access data from the General Ledger all the way to AP invoice description, which was not even an option previously.
