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.

Overall: Reporting times dropped from 3 to 4 days to overnight.

Pros: SpreadSheet server seamlessly integrates live ERP data directly into Excel. It generates various account based reports that are flexible as per need.

Pros: The best thing is that I get to use excel to build the reports and make them look the way I want. All without having to get custom reports built by the accounting software vendor.

Cons: It takes a little time and training to fully understand the queries, how they work and associate one query to another.

Overall: Better reporting with being able to customize the look.

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.

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