Overall Satisfaction with Global Software
We have recently started the process of converting over from Viewpoint's Financial Manager to Global Software's Spreadsheet Server. Currently, we only have the two basic free licenses that are provided as part of their partnership with Viewpoint, so only our Accounting department is using the software. The flexibility that Spreadsheet Server gives us for creating financial documents is amazing. If you like using Excel, you will love this product.
- Installation of this product was very easy.
- Support usually responds within 24 hours.
- Having the ability to have your GL based spreadsheets automatically update makes all the difference. No sync issues to worry about.
- If you use different GL for similar line items on your balance sheets, the software does not handle that out of the box, but there are some workarounds with Vlookups that can be used.
We are currently transitioning from Vista's Financial Manager to Global Software's Spreadsheet Server. The ease of setting up forms with Spreadsheet Server wins hands down. You do not have to dig 3 layers down to make a change. If you can use Excel, you can pretty much use this program to create your accounting forms. They give you several templates, and they are easy to modify to anything you might need.
Global Software's Spreadsheet Server connects seamlessly with your database. It allows you to enter GL ranges and/or single GLs. You can just use the base part of your GL, or subparts. Either way, when new GLs are added, if they are in a GL range you have listed, your reports will automatically capture that data with no additional changes.
The auto report is a great option to make sure everyone that needs the information, can see the information.
Any company that would like to have financial documents that update automatically, this is the software for you. You do not have to know any special coding to make things work, their wizards do all the work. While some of the licenses may be a little pricey, the money saved on not needing the additional overhead to help program queries can help offset this.
