Case Studies


TechValidate Introduction: 

This case study of Greenville Utilities Commission is based on a January 2018 survey of Global Software, Inc. customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

TechValidate Quote: 

"Prior to the implementation of Spreadsheet Server, we were using a combination of multiple FSGs in addition to the trial balance in order to create monthly financial reports. This required us to rekey information or to check/change links every month. Once the Spreadsheet Server template was created, all we have to do is change the period and we have new financial reports."


TechValidate Challenges: 

Addressed the following reporting challenges after implementing Spreadsheet Server:

  • Accessing applicable data
  • Rekeying data from the ERP system into spreadsheets
  • Manual, multi-step reporting processes
  • Creating reports in a timely manner

Evaluated Hubble before selecting Spreadsheet Server.
