Global Software, Inc. (GSI), 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 in support of leading enterprise resource planning (ERP) platforms, today announced it will showcase its Spreadsheet Server for use with SAP® applications at the SAPPHIRE® NOW conference, being held Map 14-16 in Orlando, Fla.

Spreadsheet Server, Powered by the QueryExchange™, is GSI's flagship application offered in support of SAP solutions. Spreadsheet Server works as an intuitive Microsoft® add-in, providing dynamic reporting and analysis from SAP solutions into Excel. This empowers end users with the ability to use familiar Excel features and functions to create dynamic dashboard views from within SAP applications. These views can be accessed, automated and presented with GSI's formula-driven methodology, including summary balances and detailed drill-downs. The cloud-based QueryExchange™ component of Spreadsheet Server enables users to select and tailor pre-built queries to meet their specific needs.

In addition, Spreadsheet Server has the ability to dynamically access the following SAP applications and capabilities: financial accounting and controlling (FICO), profit center accounting (PCA), sales and distribution (SD), materials management (MM), production planning and control (PP), quality management (QM), plant maintenance (PM), human capital management (HCM), project system (PS), new general ledgers and special ledgers. Spreadsheet Server, used together with SAP solutions, enhances the financial and operational user experience for customers while leveraging the significant investments made by customers in Microsoft Excel.

The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that Spreadsheet Server 12 has achieved SAP certification as powered by the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform. It integrates with the SAP ERP 6.0 application as an add-on to the ABAP® programming language for the SAP NetWeaver Application Server component 7.0.

In Addition, Global Software, an SAP software solution and technology partner in the SAP PartnerEdge™ program, has achieved gold-level status. Under the program, all operational partners earn value points and are promoted from bronze to silver and then gold status, based on success and activities in categories including innovation and marketing and competency and capabilities in support of SAP solutions. Through the program, partners work closely with SAP to develop and certify the technical integration of their solutions with SAP software. Integrated applications extend, complement and add value to SAP solutions, thereby helping mutual customers more successfully meet business needs and drive strong results.

“Attaining gold-level partner status in the SAP PartnerEdge program is the crowning achievement of our efforts to date in the SAP ecosystem,” said Spencer Kupferman, vice president, Worldwide Corporate Affairs, Global Software. “It underscores our stability, success and commitment to users of SAP solutions. We would like to thank our valued customers and partners who supported us in this achievement. We are very proud and honored to achieve this level of partnership with SAP.”
