According to an informal survey of accounting personnel, "Excel skills" ranked just above "brown paper packages tied up with strings" and just below "schnitzel with noodles" (yum!) on their scale of favorite things. With that in mind, Marc Hall and Jason Blankenship, resident Arxis Excel and reporting gurus, will share 75 minutes of their best tips and tricks for more effectively using Excel to accelerate and automate everyday tasks. During this hands-on lab, you'll learn the following:
(Continental breakfast included; sorry, no schnitzel or noodles.)
Technology continues to evolve at dizzying speed. The opportunities afforded by new technology, specifically cloud computing, are truly exciting, but also present many complex questions. Where should my business focus? Where should we invest? What emerging technologies should we keep our eye on? What solutions are more hype than substance? What are other businesses doing and why? If cloud is inevitable, when do we make a move?
Seeing the technology landscape clearly is essential. Toward that end, Bob Gaby and David Cieslak, Arxis Principals, will share recent industry research as well as their own personal experience in speaking with scores of small- and mid-sized businesses. You'll gain clarity on existing and future opportunities in order to best help your organization take advantage of the latest and greatest technology.
In this customer panel, you'll glean insight and advice from the cloud journey of four, unique Arxis customers. While they're similar in that each customer has taken strategic steps to embrace cloud technology, they're all at different stages of the process.
In other words, if "cloud" were a swimming pool, you'll hear from customers whose experience ranges from performing flips off the high-dive into the deep end (i.e. all in), playing volleyball in the shallow end (hybrid of cloud and on-premises), and squirting the lifeguard with a Super Soaker (we made that up).
Regardless, all have helpful experience to share that can help to guide your journey to the successful implementation of new technology. So grab your flippers and come on in - the water's fine!
Tips and tricks are hugely popular. There's an old proverb that says, "Give a man a fish and feed him for a day, but give an accountant tips and tricks for better utilizing their ERP software and they'll show up for your customer conference" Or something like that. Join us for a session designed to help you use your ERP software more effectively. Work smarter, increase insight, and have more fun!
You're probably familiar with Excel-based reporting. It's familiar, fairly straightforward, but tends to be incredibly manual and time consuming. But what if we told you that you could keep the "familiar" and "easy" aspects, and jettison the "manual" and "inefficient" parts? Welcome to Excel Reporting Nirvana!
While BizNet is known for its strong, Excel-based financial reporting solution, the focus of this session is to showcase the new Sage & Intacct Connectors for your operational reporting needs.
In addition to GL, Sage users can now access any data for AR, AP, SO, PO, and Inventory through prebuilt connectors. Users can easily build any report, dynamic list or function (with drill down) quickly & simply, all in Excel. Or, just get quick answers to questions with a few clicks.
The same reporting capabilities are also available for Intacct. BizNet has been re-architected specifically for Intacct cloud (no server component) and provides pre-built connectors to all Intacct dimensions!
Audience: Sage and Intacct

Battling manual processes in an organization is a struggle. Inefficiency has a way of sneaking in, sitting down in the recliner, and helping itself to your Diet Coke and Cheetos. Before you know it, it's got control of the remote and forcing you to refill the snack bowl! This session will provide several ideas for kicking inefficiency to the curb in a number of key areas:
Audience: Sage and Intacct
Is it past time to improve the ease and effectiveness of your business reporting? Perhaps you're clinging to the hope FRx is still alive and simply hiding at Graceland (it's dead). Maybe you've resigned yourself to manually creating reports in your favorite spreadsheet application (there's a better way). Or perhaps you think things like automated report distribution and/or consolidations are for accounting lightweights (what is wrong with you?). **News Flash!** Let it go! There really is a better way! You're Fine! Attend this session to see how two different solutions - Renovofyi and Sage Intelligence - can significantly automate and improve your reporting: consolidations, drill-down analysis, report creation, distribution, and more.
Audience: Sage 100, 300, 500 ERP
