AXIA Consulting Partners with Excel4Apps to Expedite Business Intelligence Projects with Excel-based Reporting

Partnership combines AXIA’s ERP implementation expertise for seamless report conversion in BI projects with Excel4Apps cost-effective real-time reporting solutions

Pittsburgh, PA – AXIA Consulting, a global provider of business and technology solutions, has announced a new partnership with Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software for use with SAP, Oracle and PeopleSoft. The partnership leverages AXIA’s expertise in enterprise resource planning (ERP) and business intelligence (BI) implementation projects with the real-time reporting capabilities of GL Wand, Reports and other Wands products from Excel4apps.
“AXIA’s in-depth ERP and report package experience is a natural complement to our simple, yet powerful reporting software, and we’re looking forward to extending our mutual reach into the ERP space,” said Chris Meyer, CEO, Excel4apps. “Our tools offer an economic advantage over complex BI solutions, while AXIA focuses on efficient conversion of a customer’s existing complex, custom reports to our reporting platform.”

By linking directly to an ERP system’s underlying database through an Excel interface, Reports Wand and GL Wand let customers create sophisticated reports that include dashboards and other presentation features without IT assistance. They also require no additional hardware or middleware and install in minutes, as opposed to a lengthy BI implementation.

“We’re looking forward to working with Excel4apps customers to quickly assess the scope and goals of their BI conversion projects based on their specific requirements,” said Shawn Hopper, Director, Enterprise Information Management for AXIA. “Our goal is to use our decades of experience with large-scale implementations to anticipate customer needs, overcome challenges, and deliver the best possible BI and ERP solutions.”
