2 A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him. Sidney Greenberg Access your SAP data without delay The value of data lies not in the size of a database or its contents, but in the way a company can make use of the insights to make quicker decisions, manage margins and increase the bottom line. Data easily yields patterns, and it is from these patterns that executives can homogenously make and respond to the internal and external operating environments. How quickly you access data this will depend on how quickly you can respond. Imagine being able to create a direct and secure connection to your underlying SAP ERP database without the need for additional infrastructure, hardware and resources to manage the environment. Imagine if you could leverage your existing software to create a value base for your future success. What if you could train your current resources in a few days on a technology they have been using for years, a technology which 95% of all organisations are committed to. What if you could encourage those resources to make sense of data in real time without incurring huge delays and organisational bottle necks. Simplicity need not be hidden behind a wall of complexity

3 The greatest thing about a challenge is it provides and opportunity for a solution. -Proverb To listen is to learn Annually thousand of potential prospects are surveyed by organisations seeking to understand more about the bottlenecks and challenges of existing processes. The responses, along with public reports issued by industry leading firms such as Gartner, IDC and Forester continue to highlight the erroneous practices that financial and operational users the world over are forced to adopt when it comes to the seemingly simple task of reporting data from ERP systems. User friendly report delivery, difficulty in creating reports and dashboards are but a small selection of the many challenges that companies world wide struggle with. FI/CO users in particular often talk of constraints and difficulties which impact their ability to perform the intended functions of the position. So, if the challenges are known and widely documented then surely there is an opportunity for a solution? Read on

4 Trying to get users to give up Excel is the ultimate exercise in futility. Jeff Krammer BI Architect One plus One equals... Its not often that you can leverage existing software solutions, combine their individual values together quickly and immediately change the way you look at your organisation. is a certified SAP 3 rd Party solution that combines the familiarity of Microsoft Excel with the mission critical data inherent in your SAP system. The connection between the two systems is quick, secure and incredibly intuitive, and furthermore the solution suite provides users with the ability to build, change and distribute reports on the fly. At a functional level users, especially FI/CO can drill down from summary level to transactional level with one click. Develop reports once and refresh live data automatically Leverage the familiarity of Excel for ease of use and time to value Run reports quickly without impacting the performance of the database Empower business users and avoid wasted hours and days waiting for information

5 To fully appreciate the role of Excel, start by understanding why it is that users love Excel. One quickly realizes that information as a depreciating asset must be used immediately to be of any value. Teach someone to fish We all know how the famous parable ends and the reality is it has never been more appropriate. Users today are bogged down with cumbersome processes which are locked behind walls and layers of complexity. By empowering the user, companies of all sizes are unlocking many benefits which have previously cost both time and money to obtain. Now, simplicity prevails and benefits are reaped in multitudes. No more downloading or re-keying/exporting of SAP balance or transaction level data Cost saving no need to invest in additional hardware or skilled resources - leverage existing infrastructure. Time saving make reporting an efficient process by creating reports once and not replicating the task every week / month or quarter end. Enhance productivity of skilled resources by reducing the redundant tasks View results directly in your SpreadSheet, or with enhanced drill-down capabilities Provide users with secure access to data and enable a single version of the truth Eliminate requirement for IT or super-users to create/change financial reports Enhanced data analysis leveraging new features in Excel 2013, such as tables, pivot reports and charts

6 Global Software supports over 5,000 customers across 45 different ERP platforms, in over 20 Industry and sub Industry verticals enabling users to manage data with unsurpassed levels of efficiency. 90% of Fortune 2000 executives rank Excel as the number 1 reporting tool out of 14 different technologies CFO magazine 20% of large companies are already quantifying data as an asset on their Balance Sheets Financial Management, 03/2013 by Global Software can be installed in a few hours, and users trained within days. Some of the biggest names in the Industry leverage our solutions to improve complexities of reporting. Global Software operates across every time zone to ensure our customers and partners are supported 24/7/365

7 Key differentiators SAP Report Painter Qlikview / Tableau Ops based Analytics SAP VI Business Objects Cognos Tactical Analytics Embedded Excel Functionality BPC Direct connection to SAP ECC (Not BW / BWA) Real-time, live ERP Data (not Static data from an ETL) Pre-configured out of the box and installed in hours Secure user control of data reducing IT bottlenecks Certified SAP 3 rd Party Solution & Gold Solutions Partner Does not require additional hardware / skilled resources Strategic Hyperion User Driven stands alone in its class as a highly tactical, highly relevant user based tool. It s simplicity is just one of it s defining factors Primary Audience FI/CO individuals Secondary Audience Operational Analysts

8 Price is what you pay, value is what you get Warren Buffett Eliminate Reduce Raise Create Breaking the price vs. value trade off For years individuals and companies alike have grappled with price vs. value. The dispute has always been; higher priced items will yield more value, and lower priced items less value. Our aim is simple, break the status quo by providing exceptional value at an excellent price. With efficiencies and gains across a number of different tasks, individuals are able to quickly and efficiently automate much of the reporting process. By eliminating laborious tasks, and reducing time taken to compile data for financial forecasts, income statements, P&L accounts etc companies are able to raise efficiency levels and create value for finance and LoB users across the company. So what is your ROI?
