Spreadsheet Server Pricing, Features, Reviews and Alternatives

Spreadsheet Server product overview

What is Spreadsheet Server?

Spreadsheet Server is a centralized reporting and automation solution that connects to an ERP database to pull live information into the native spreadsheet environment. Using a pre-configured add-in for Microsoft Excel and compatible for integration with a myriad of popular ERP systems, Spreadsheet Server eliminates any re-keying or repeated downloading of business data. Users are empowered to not only create reports in a familiar workspace, they can also drill-down substantially into live ERP details without specialist IT knowledge. Blending GL and non-GL data into a single worksheet, Spreadsheet Server's QueryExchange component provides an online repository of pre-configured queries that can be grouped together using the built-in SmartPak feature.

Key benefits of using Spreadsheet Server

  • Spreadsheet Server is a modular-based reporting solution that automatically pulls your live ERP data directly into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.


  • The solution allows users to generate reports from live data within Excel, leveraging their own custom queries or those available from the system database.


  • QueryExchange component is an online repository of selected queries that users can download, featuring the SmartPak tool for grouping pre-configured queries together.


  • QueryDesigner promises an intuitive method for creating and maintaining custom queries over a relational database, before combining them with any pre-configured ones inside the same single spreadsheet or workbook.


  • An integrated Distribution Manager automates the scheduling of report distribution from inside the Excel environment itself, making common sharing tasks more accessible and efficient.

    Pros
    We have a great rep, [sensitive content hidden], who is very reliable and eager to assist with any issues.
    Support staff is timely to respond back and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I have worked with Dasharath many times and he has been very helpful and prompt to resolute.
    It was easy to learn and manipulate. I have been able to improve and make our financials visually appealing.
    Cons
    Easily conflicts with some other tools, which makes some problems. Need to remove those issues.
    The most difficult part of spreadsheet server is the amount of time it takes to run our reports.

    Flexible and Time Saving

    Reviewed 11 days ago
    Pros

    Real time data and being able to customize easily in excel.

    Cons

    Pulling in data for large files can take a while if there are a lot of formulas and if you have the automatic calculation turned on, it will refresh even if you didn't want it to.

    We use this product as a replacement for Oracle FSG reports for departmental and location reporting.

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    Reporting times dropped from 3 to 4 days to overnight.

    Pros

    The product offers great flexibility, looks at the live data and all hierarchies. Distribution Manager and Profile Scheduler really enhance the reporting functionality.

    Cons

    Performance is slow particularly for transaction based reports. Updating to the very latest software was of great help but we had to move the transactions to a table for quicker queries. This allowed reports to be able to complete overnight (around 8 hours) but we are limited to only a periods worth of data at a time for transaction based reports. The translated ledgers are not currently working but consolidation ledger are so not a top priority but something to fix in the future.

    Vendor response

    Thanks for your thoughtful response, Ray. We¿re happy to hear that you are experiencing success with your reporting times. We have an even more recent update for you, Spreadsheet Server 14.6.4, which includes more enhancements. Contact us at customersuccess@globalsoftwareinc.com to upgrade today!

    I use Spreadsheet Server only twice a year but at those times it's critical.

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    Because Spreadsheet Server is connected to our general ledger, when we enter a journal entry we get immediate updates in the financial statements.

    Pros

    Spreadsheet Server is critical in allowing us to produce financial statements that are integrated into our financial software.

    Cons

    Our financial statements contain many tables and schedules. Because of this, Spreadsheet Server has to look into almost every general ledger account in our system. This results in an initial load time each day of approximately 15-20 minutes. Excel is unavailable for any other use during that time.

    Vendor response

    Thank you for your review! We are happy to hear that Spreadsheet Server is such a critical part of your financial reporting environment! Our team has just issued a new release, V 14.6, which should significantly improve your load time. We¿ve received very positive feedback on this enhanced capability. Please reach out to your customer success representative for more details or email customersuccess@globalsoftwareinc.com . Thank you, The Spreadsheet Server Team
