Level 5A, Exec 8

Join this presentation to learn how Smiths Detection – part of the Smiths Group and a global leader in threat detection and screening technology – completely changed the way they approached reporting, and in doing so transformed their business.

Hear from Ben Macdonald, Finance Director Global Operations & Systems, how month end was a very pressurising time for their Finance team, due to the difficulty in getting the right data, in the right format from SAP.

He will discuss how with Excel4apps they were able to link Excel directly to their data in SAP and easily create refreshable templates, massively cutting down the time and effort required to create reports and leaving a great deal more time for analysis.

Previously, the process relied on a small number of key users with the knowledge of how to create reports. Following the introduction of Excel4apps, the whole of the Finance team could create reports easily and in no time, with huge benefits to job satisfaction and reduced risk to the business.

Finally, hear how with staff retention affected by manually-intensive processes, Smiths Detection found in Excel4apps a solution that thanks to its intuitiveness and ease of use would allow their new staff to get up and running quickly.

Excel4apps is a cost-effective and S4/Hana compliant solution. If you are interested in finding out more about how it can make a massive difference to your business without costing the earth - including a live, interactive demonstration - then don’t miss this presentation!
