"Best reporting option for MRI"

What do you like best?

As an analyst I need to make reports on the fly that are accurate and well formatted. Spreadsheet Server picks up exactly where MRI Report Design drops the ball. I am able to accurately and quickly provide up to date information in a beautifully formatted report that matches my exact needs.

What do you dislike?

It's not so much a dislike as a want - I want to take more courses so I can learn to better use all the capability of the software including SQL and Distribution Manager. So far I've only mastered the GL base product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you currently only use the base reporting provided by MRI you need to meet spreadsheet server!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have saved well over 50 hours of work just in the past few months alone. It's allowed me to provide more accurate reporting and the drill down option lets people find out the answers to their questions without coming to me. Freeing me up to provide better analysis.

"Brilliant"

What do you like best?

Formatting and reporting is such a big part of any spreadsheet based data pool and this makes it so much easier. It is really easy to get the hang of and you can pick it up quickly. It has a very intuitive feel to it. It pulls the data from our spreadsheets quicker than any other solution we have tried.

What do you dislike?

If you are experienced with this kind of thing then i imagine set up is not too bad but it can be very tricky if you haven't set any thing like this up before and may require a few stages of tweaking to really get it doing exactly what you want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a quick and powerful spreadsheet data collection platform then i would look in to this. If you can arrange for a trail i think it is worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have saved a lot of time using this program, not only does it pull the actual data very quickly but once you have it set up properly it is really easy to change parameters quickly. It has streamlined out data exporting and saved a lot of time.

"Great Time Saver"

What do you like best?

Spreadsheet Server has drastically reduced my month end close process time. This always me to review financials more instead of just processing them.

What do you dislike?

Spreadsheet Server is a wonderful tool, however it reduces the speed of Excel.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The tool is very powerful, but does require some knowledge of your ERP system. My recommendation would be gain your ITs support so that you can fully use the Spreadsheet Server tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Spreadsheet Server on a regular basis in my role, but it is most prevalent during month end close. I have realized hours of time saving. It largest contribution for me is to account reconciliations.

"Well worth it!"

What do you like best?

The formatting is exceptional and it has a very familiar feel to it, which I think makes it easier to use. It's helpful for budgets and planning, and support is always available, should you need it.

What do you dislike?

The setup can be a little bit of a struggle, but it works well if you have a bit more experience. The costs can also be a little daunting but if you're able to trial it then it's easier to see why it's worth it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Order the trial before purchasing, it's much better to get a feel for it first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is now a lot easier to collate data together and everything is easy to find which increased productivity overall.

"Spreadsheet Server installation in Citrix"

What do you like best?

After the software is setup and configured, it works relatively well and can pull data from SAP (in our case) faster than other solution we have in place. Tested using Excel 2013 and 2016 64bit.

What do you dislike?

Configuration requires a separate server for segment lists and XML configs. Typically, if there is an error with pulling the data through SS, it is not feasible to fix it without calling the support.In order to keep track of users, I had to build not only AD groups but also create a spreadsheet with license numbers as it is required to re-use licenses if users are added/removed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SS is used in our organization to pull data from SAP and make it available and easy to operate for users in standard Excel format.Generally, it gives an ability to end-users to retrieve datasets without remembering codes for SAP transactions and also due to security requirements it use usually not possible to give external users access to SAP directly. In this case, SS serves its purpose really well.
