RALEIGH, N.C., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel based reporting and budget loading software for Oracle and SAP, has today announced a partnership agreement with O2Works, a leading Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) services provider. As part of this agreement, O2Works will implement and support the Reports Wand tool from Excel4apps. With Reports Wand, Oracle users employ an Excel front end to access real-time Oracle data and tailor previously defined reports to their specific needs.

"Excel4apps is excited to work with the respected group of Oracle experts at O2Works as we partner to empower customers with the ability to create highly customized and complex reports using Reports Wand," said Chris Meyer, Director Americas for Excel4apps.  "The services and software provided through this partnership are especially critical for companies with complicated reporting needs who may have limited Oracle programming support or personnel resources."

With Reports Wand, a programmer defines reports in SQL with a tool of choice and simply turns them over to users for additional customization in Reports Wand.  Users then employ Excel formatting, pivot tables, charts and user-defined functions to create variants of the reports. Reports are multi-tiered and drillable to live Oracle data of any type, from financial to human resources and supply chain information. Because users work in a familiar Excel environment with Reports Wand, it requires minimal training. Reports Wand also lets users combine data from multiple Oracle reports and data sources outside of Oracle, all the while leveraging existing Oracle value sets and security.

"Reporting is an area where Oracle users are always looking for additional guidance and assistance," says Mark Clark, Senior Partner for O2Works. "A tool like Reports Wand really extends what Oracle delivers and helps fill a need that certain members of the Oracle user community require."
