GLSU

Streamline SAP Financial Data Entry from Excel

GLSU allows an organization to streamline its financial data entry functions. GLSU provides a flexible and intuitive spreadsheet interface for collecting and posting transactions to SAP. From simple recurring general journal entries to allocations thousands of lines long, GLSU solves many common SAP data entry problems.

GLSU is far more than a simple batch load program, GLSU uses a combination of a configurable spreadsheet interface with a custom ABAP load program.

These two items work together to deliver deep functionality such as

Configurable work space

Enter only relevant SAP data items for your specific application. Customize the order of fields. All spreadsheet customization is done through dialog boxes which let you choose and order fields from a picklist. Adding, changing or deleting fields takes seconds.

Build data-entry applications

Form input, monthly close packages, complex allocations, rebates, accruals, etc. can all be automated using GLSU. Different spreadsheet “templates” can be created, stored on the SAP server, and distributed to your workforce quickly.

Pre-validate BEFORE posting

GLSU can check your input data against live (or off-line) SAP master data to warn of potential errors before posting occurs. All errors are returned to the user simultaneously.

A word from our customers

“I haven’t seen or heard of anything better than GLSU for loading financial data into SAP. At a class last year, a gentleman from another company could not stop talking about Z Option – and he had some really complex formulas going on. There is simply no limit to how you can use GLSU, if you’re familiar with Excel.”

Fender

“The biggest selling point for GLSU is that it is Excel-based. We’re accountants, so we know Excel very well. Anytime you can give us a tool that allows us to utilize the knowledge we already have,
it’s going to be a more powerful tool for us.”

GraybaR

“GLSU allows people to do more in less time. With 15 minutes of input, you have 45 minutes of analysis. GLSU enhances our decision-making power and allows us to react faster to changes in tough economic times.“
