Customer Success Story Details
Paychex uses API Wizard across the enterprise to save more than 3000 resource hours annually, streamline complex Oracle processes, and empower business teams to take care of their own data. Paychex, an API Wizard customer since 2012, saves at least 3,000 resource hours annually by automating a wide range of Oracle E-Business Suite business processes.
With API Wizard, the Paychex I.T. team empowers business people across the company to quickly and accurately do their Oracle work in easy to use Excel interfaces. This puts the data work in the hands of those who know the data best, while I.T. retains control over the Oracle processes and data integrity.
In addition to time savings and increased Oracle ERP data accuracy, Paychex notes that API Wizard has allowed people to shift their focus from data entry to higher value data analysis, decision making and action taking.
Paychex has streamlined more than 30 different Oracle business processes. Some of the functional areas include Incentive Compensation setup and transactions, AP Invoices, Vendor Creation, New Hires, Purchasing. Receiving, AR Receipt Application, and Sysadmin tasks (responsibility maintenance, password resets, etc.).

API Wizard helps OFS efficiently manage production operations in Oracle Manufacturing. With API Wizard, OFS production schedulers use Excel to rapidly and accurately reschedule, group, and assign hundreds, or thousands, of jobs at a time in Oracle. Work that used to take 8-18 hours the old way takes just 30-60 minutes with API Wizard. This saves significant hours annually for schedulers, and keeps manufacturing running smoothly.

Rackspace improves customer service by simplifying multiple Oracle EBS processes. A specific example is the creation and updating of Oracle service contracts. Before API Wizard, this was a time-consuming, manual process that frustrated people, slowed response times, produced data entry errors, and made the service contract team regularly dependent on I.T. for technical assistance. With API Wizard, the global service contracts processing team does its Oracle work in Excel, on its own, quickly and accurately, anytime. API Wizard saves Rackspace over 100 resource hours every day The I.T. team solved this Oracle data challenge for users and gracefully extricated itself from having to provide direct technical assistance, while maintaining complete control over Oracle data processing.

Jameel, an Oracle developer, says: “API Wizard has been a great tool for TRAC. We use a bunch of Excel Loaders for various departments. I like API Wizard for these reasons:
• Ease of deployment
• Easy setup
• Integrated Report Functionality. This is very useful and we use it extensively.
• Parameter Alias feature
• Simple to add API fields to an existing Loader.
• Changing to API Field Name is a great feature."
