Global Software, Inc., the official author of the Automation Road Map Strategy™ for Microsoft® Excel and the No. 1 provider of Microsoft® Excel-based automation and analysis tools to the leading enterprise resource planning (ERP) platforms, announces that ADSOTECH Scandinavia Oy, a Finnish provider of IT solutions and infrastructure products, has joined the Global Software, Inc.(GSI) worldwide certified partner channel.

With the new partnership, Adsotech will add Spreadsheet Server Powered by the QueryExchange™, GSI's flagship application in the SAP® space, complementing its current service offerings to the SAP user communities. Spreadsheet Server, Powered by the QueryExchange™ works as an intuitive Microsoft® add-in providing live reporting and analysis from SAP into Excel. This empowers end users with the ability to use familiar Excel features and functions to create dynamic dashboard views from SAP. These views can be accessed, automated and presented with our formula driven methodology, including summary balances and detailed drill-downs. The cloud-based QueryExchange™ component of Spreadsheet Server enables user organizations to select and tailor pre-built queries to meet their specific needs. Utilized in the QueryExchange™, the SmartPak™ feature is a way to group pre-configured queries together. Searching by selecting a SmartPak™ gives users a quick and reliable way to access a group of dedicated pre-defined queries. In addition, Spreadsheet Server has the ability to dynamically access the following modules: FI,CO, PCA, SD, MM, PP, QM, PM, HR, PS, New GL, and Special Ledgers. Spreadsheet Server enhances the SAP financial and operational user experience all while leveraging the significant investments made by the customer in Microsoft Excel.

“As we continue our worldwide strategy of expansion in various markets, Adsotech provides us with a much needed presence in the Scandinavian region of the greater SAP community,” said Fergus van Niekerk, director of business development and channel expansion for EMEA & LATAM at Global Software, Inc. “Adsotech understands the immediate value received by clients when they invest in Spreadsheet Server and our Microsoft Excel Automation platform for use with SAP.”

Not only is the integration of Spreadsheet Server seamless in the SAP environment, but the software was built with the idea of the SAP finance/business user at the top of the agenda. This will make for a tremendous offering to the Adsotech customer base.“
