  • Journal Entry: Curing Common SAP Financial Pains with Excel
    Journal Entry: Curing Common SAP Financial Pains with Excel Melissa Neil - SAP Product Manager, Simon Parkes - SAP Solution Consultant Recorded: May 24 2017 59 mins
    Are you or your finance users struggling with time constraints in entering manual FI/CO type entries into SAP? Are you limited by your current financial custom uploading tool? Don’t worry, there is a cure.

    Entering financial or journal entries into SAP efficiently is essential to managing all aspects of your business, yet manually keying all those entries (one line at a time) into inflexible SAP T-code entry screens can be time consuming and painful. The IT Department can build your staff a home-grown custom loader for loading journal entry information into SAP; however, these batch loaders tend to be limited and inflexible, don’t handle errors well, and require ongoing IT support and maintenance. It is merely a band aid to a larger issue.

    GLSU is an Excel add-in for uploading financial data into SAP. It streamlines financial data entry and reporting without the dependency on IT making it the ultimate cure. Additional GLSU features include:
    1. Park and Post all from Excel
    2. Sophisticated error handling and business logic
    3. Excel templates created and modified in seconds with no programming or scripting.

    Attend this webinar to learn:
    • What current SAP financial uploading tools are often used today
    • The limitations for SAP users in their current FI/CO entry process
    • How GLSU, a financial spreadsheet uploader for SAP, can help reduce the manual waste and increase efficiency.

  • SAP Planning & Posting with the Ease of Excel
    SAP Planning & Posting with the Ease of Excel Richard Sampson - Managing Director Europe, Simon Parkes- SAP Solution Specialist Recorded: Apr 26 2017 49 mins
    Planning, Budgeting and Forecasting processes are critical to the success of the business and key in aligning day-to-day activities with long-term strategy.

    Creating and maintaining your Plans manually in Microsoft Excel® is highly popular with many SAP organizations, but requires considerable time and effort. Rolling forecasts are an additional challenge when using Excel, again due to both the time and costs involved. Tight budgets, reduced funding and the prioritisation of resources and assets add to the complexity of the overall challenge.

    In this webinar we will discuss and demonstrate live how you can now connect Microsoft Excel directly to SAP to make your Planning process far easier and be better prepared for uncertain business changes such as Brexit.

    What we will cover:
    •Understand how the Excel4apps add-in enables direct plan posting into FICO
    •Retrieve financial and non-financial data from SAP in real-time to report on actuals and budget via Excel
    •Shorten the Planning Process by automating the distribution of plan templates and real-time actuals
    •Achieve Rolling Forecasts with the tools you already have.
