Online PR News – 23-April-2012 – Raleigh, NC – Raleigh, NC - Capturing a quick, clear view of real-time Oracle general ledger (GL) data is the foundation for faster, more accurate ad-hoc and financial reports.

In addition, Excel4apps will showcase how Oracle e-Business Suite (EBS) financial users can get even faster access to GL data, with expedited start-up for IT departments, using GL Wand Pre-Release 5 for Oracle EBS.

“The incredible improvements in reporting processes that customers like Starkey Labs have achieved explain why nearly 100% of our customers in a recent survey would recommend GL Wand to other Oracle EBS users,” said Chris Meyer, Director Americas for Excel4apps. “At Collaborate 12, we are excited to introduce new features and other developments in GL Wand Pre-Release 5 that make GL reporting an even faster, more intuitive experience for financial users, with minimal IT involvement.”
