  • What’s New in Excel for Financial Professionals Dec 12 2019 2:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    MrExcel
    Microsoft has announced several new calculation functions for Excel, from a better XLOOKUP function to new dynamic array functions SORT, FILTER, UNIQUE, and SEQUENCE, to a new geography and stock function FIELDVALUE. While these functions are already in Excel for Office Insiders, you should expect them to arrive in your subscription of Office 365 soon.

    During this one-hour webinar, Mr Excel will demonstrate:

    •How XLOOKUP is faster and less error-prone than VLOOKUP
    •XLOOKUP's ability to return all 12 months in a single formula, which is exciting enough to make the INDEX/MATCH people switch
    •How to return geography and stock price information using FIELDVALUE
    •Sort and filter with a formula using SORT, FILTER, and UNIQUE
    •How the lowly SEQUENCE function will super-charge all calculation functions in Excel.

  • Lucy Group: Transforming reporting processes in Hyperion and OneStream Recorded: Nov 18 2019 27 mins
    Guy Hill, Group Reporting Manager at Lucy Group
    Do you feel the panic as the end of the month approaches? Does your team turn into shadows of themselves, working night and day to manage the month-end close?

    That was the situation for the British multi-national Lucy Group. The team were trapped in repetitive and manual reporting processes. The financial function felt more like report creation on auto-pilot with no time to add value to the business with in-depth analysis. They were creating 100-page static reports that were sent by post to their business units abroad.

    But times have changed at Lucy Group and now they create reports with just a mouse-click, and all their old reports have transformed into dynamic dashboards. Reports are sent to the business units abroad digitally within seconds.

    Learn more about Lucy Group’s journey to automated reports with drill-down capabilities and real-time updates in this 30-minute-long webinar.

  • Period End Consolidation with Excel4apps Recorded: Sep 13 2018 47 mins
    Erika Creary, Missy Ojigho
    This Webinar is for anyone in finance who uses Oracle and is frustrated with the time it takes to handle consolidations.

    The path to prepare consolidated financial reports is often plagued with complexity. It’s susceptible to error due to added manual intervention.

    For organizations using native Oracle tools such as Financial Consolidation Hub or Global Consolidation System, these introduce efficiency to establish a set of consolidated balances. However, they do not present a flexible report solution to publish these balances. Often finance professionals resort to manual preparation of subsidiary consolidated financial reports directly in Excel. Manual preparation of financial reports introduces process inefficiency as balance adjustments in the Ledger impact report output and therefore re-invoke the repetitive time consuming steps of data import and report format.

    If you’d like to discover a few of the ways that you can reduce the time it takes to handle Consolidation, join this webinar! We’ll discuss some of the inherent problems around Consolidation, some of the frustrations that are common to finance teams, and insight into how to reduce these problems and frustrations.

    Join us Thursday, 13th September at 13:00 GMT.
  • Reconciling Balance Sheets with Excel4apps Recorded: Aug 16 2018 42 mins
    Erika Creary, Missy Ojigho
    The balance sheet reconciliation is a key element of ‘closing the books’. It has long been an important control to ensure the accuracy of your financial statements, which in turn highlights the financial condition of your organisation. Reconciliations can identify mistakes and misappropriations and help to ensure that internal controls are being adhered to. Stringent review and scrutiny of balance sheet accounts during the period close cycle provides key stakeholders, management and auditors with assurance that internal controls are being applied and are working effectively.

    In this webinar, we’ll discuss Balance Sheet Reconciliation – the good and the bad.

    Join us to look at contributing factors to poor balance sheet reconciliations and how Excel4apps can help you to create a robust, efficient and seamless process.

    We’ll explore:

    - Time lost to repetitive and manual manipulation of data exported into Excel
    - Frustrating dependency on IT to execute ad-hoc report customisation
    - Audit risks due to not identifying potential fraudulent, improper or material transactions quickly.

    And more…
