Overall Satisfaction with Excel4apps

Used mainly by finance department but also by other analysts across the organization.
It is mainly used to retrieve financial data.
  • Retrieve data for financial reports (template or manual set report in excel)
  • To drill down into journal entries for detail analysis
  • To distinguish the input of different type of entries and by different users
  • It is possible but difficult to retrieve data or set criteria from different module into a single report or retrieve. If it is more user friendly instead of having to create a complex formula to retrieve the data, this function will be utilized more often.
  • It will be nice to have visual (graphs, etc.) report template available
  • It is helpful if we can retrieve data for a range of date, instead of just YTD, PTD etc. and multi-year data all at once for comparison too.
  • It improved analysts' efficiency in data review
  • It helps in monthly reports (timely)
  • It improve the feasibility of some of the financial review.
Excel4apps is more user friendly and can retrieve data much easier and in a nicer format than Jaspersoft.
Qlik Sense is useful and have more visual reporting and dashboard. However, it is usually used for higher level of analyses and review.
Yardi is used for specific purpose, which is different than Excel4apps. Excel4apps can pull all the financial data from Oracle, including billing and collections.

Would you buy Excel4apps again?

Yes

It is user friendly. It totally improve my efficiency and allow me to easily access some of the information which I have to spend hours to drilldown to in the past. It also allow me to enhance some of the reports and ways we prepare and calculate KPI.
I didn't really need much support as it is very user friendly. The initial implementation and training is useful enough for me to start exploring it myself. Some of the technical issues I experienced in the past are usually resolved in a timely manner and it didn't impact my work.
It is wonderful for analysing since you can easily drill down to the level of detail you want for the data. It is also very helpful for monthly reporting with the preset report and you can create your own standardized report too. As long as you set up the data retrieve formula properly, you can retrieve different year, budget and forecast data from the system easily by changing a few criteria. It is more data driven so it is less appropriate for management who are looking for visual and summarized reports.
