Challenge

Before Spreadsheet Server, HPI’s accountants struggled with generating their reports. They were running reports out of JD Edwards® using World Writers which included importing and rekeying information into Microsoft® Excel, leaving the possibility for errors and causing downstream process issues. HPI was introduced to Global Software, Inc.’s Microsoft® Excel-based Automation Suite as a means to deliver standardized financial reports in a timely manner.

Solution

HPI instantly saw an improvement in the speed of their accounting process; they eliminated the need to rekey, download, and export data. Users were empowered to develop reports tailored to their needs in a timely fashion with enhanced spreadsheet security. There was also an increase in departmental analysis and visibility of financial across the entire organization.

 

“With Spreadsheet Server for use with JDEdwards®, we were able to do on-time reporting and inventory availability, which helps our sales people know what to sell and when to sell it. Spreadsheet Server has helped us tremendously!”
