We've updated our Events page with a number of webinars for people who would like to learn more after the conference.  Please check it out to see how API Wizard can help you optimize Oracle EBS and Oracle Cloud.

5/10/22 - New 'Lookup' reporting feature for Oracle Cloud (Fusion)

Given how slow and unresponsive the Oracle Cloud / Fusion web forms can be, doing any type of data lookup can be an arduous and frustrating task.  For instance, say you've got 30 specific invoices that you need to research to check to find the related PO and quantity received.  Your choices are limited to looking these up one-by-one in the forms or running a large report and then sifting through it to find the specific invoices of interest.

With API Wizard's new 'Lookup' reporting capability, you can just paste the values you want to lookup into a column in Excel and API Wizard can quickly lookup the information you're interested in.  For example, paste 30 invoice numbers and get results for each one (such as PO #, line #, qty, hold/reason, received qty, etc).

This works for any data in Oracle Cloud - Financials, Mfg, HR, etc.  It's a huge time-saver for anyone that needs to lookup data in Oracle.  To see a demo of this, contact us.

4/1/22 - Not fooling - we've made API Wizard even faster

API Wizard has been the fastest, easiest way to load data into Oracle for over 13 years.  Back in 2020, we introduced Bulk Load, an even faster mechanism for loading data.  We've been tweaking the Bulk Load algorithm and have improved performance by an additional 15%, making an already fast process even faster.  We've also updated our Turbo Load process, which is our fasted load type and is typically used when data volume exceeds 100,000 records.  

3/18/22 - Update to Blanket PO Process

API Wizard is continually innovating and updating its product offering.  This month we highlight changes to our Blanket PO Process - we've made it even easier to create and update Blanket POs, including a specialized Loader for managing complex price breaks and another for quickly adding or editing blanket lines.  If your organization uses Blanket POs, then this is a must see!

2/15/22 - Cloud Query (SQL for Cloud) Updates

API Wizard has updated its Cloud Query product to support querying multiple Cloud instances simultaneously, enhanced editing and formatting options, and advanced user reporting capabilities.  Run SQL against Oracle Cloud Apps without having to setup BI reports.  Perfect for developers, system analysts, and users.

We've updated several of our training videos, including our API Wizard Administration training and our training on updating existing Loaders.  API Wizard customers can find these updated training videos and our entire library of training content on our support site, api-wizard.zendesk.com.  We will be updating and adding to our training videos throughout 2022.

11/20/21 - New process - Lease Management

We've been working ​with one of our customers on a new Lease Management solution.  This process allows you to create and update Leases in the Property Manager module.  Any API Wizard customers interested in Lease Management should reach out to their account representative for more information.

10/26/21 - Expedite Year-End Processing in Oracle EBS and Oracle Cloud Apps (Fusion) - Don't miss this webinar (Nov 10, 1pm EST)

Year-end is approaching and with it brings all types of painful Oracle data processing activities, such as updating Price Lists, performing Physical Inventories, end-dating inactive Suppliers, making sure all pending Orders are booked, making sure tax info is up-to-date for Customers, Suppliers, and Employees.  Budgeting!  And so much more.

Companies around the world running Oracle EBS 11.5.x have a common problem - their version of Web ADI no longer works with current versions of MS Office.  This creates a problem, since most organizations don't want to their employees using old and unsupported versions of MS Office due to security concerns.  

In this webinar, API Wizard will showcase how our tool works with 11.5.10 systems, can do everything Web ADI can do plus a lot more, and is compatible with all supported versions of MS Office, mitigating any security risks associated with running Web ADI.

5/10/21 - OATUG session tomorrow on API Wizard for Apex

API Wizard is presenting a session tomorrow, hosted by the OATUG, on how our Excel framework is the perfect compliment to Oracle Apex. 

Apex is a favorite tool in the Oracle community and can be used to rapidly build nice web-based forms for Oracle.  However, as nice as it is, it doesn't really have a great solution for handling moderate or large data volumes.  That's where API Wizard comes in... you can easily enable API Wizard for any Apex process and provide a better, faster user interface that's capable of handling any data volume.  Check out our events page for more info.

4/16/21 - New functional processes
