API Wizard Excelerate is the comprehensive tool for performing highly efficient data entry, data maintenance (updates), and reporting In Oracle EBS.
Microsoft Excel is the user interface for performing any Oracle EBS process better, faster, and more accurately than you can in the Oracle forms!
Key API Wizard Capabilities
Data Extraction / Reporting
Security and Control
Uses Excel interface to enter new data into Oracle. Simple, powerful, and efficient.
Use Excel interface to update existing data. Can process one or thousands of records at a time.
Pull data from Oracle into Excel. Advanced filters and sophisticated reporting options.
Ensures the data being entered is accurate. Provides real-time error messages to users.
Superior data duplication avoidance, including fuzzy logic analysis.
Seamlessly integrates business rule validations.
Easily transform data during entry and update.
Remove unwanted characters, such as spaces, tabs, or other invisible characters
Follows EBS security and allows more granular control.
Advanced auditing options which provide far more detail than standard Oracle.
Allows additional control over who can enter and who can approve data changes.
Sophisticated compression technology for absolute fastest loading. Ideal for larger projects.
Over 100+ pre-built Loaders for common EBS business processes.
Sophisticated authoring tool to build Loaders for any need.
Yes, it's very fast.
But perhaps more importantly, it's very accurate...
What is the cost of bad data?
Gartner indicates that the average financial impact of poor data quality is $9.7 - 14.2 million per year per organization (Jan 9, 2017).
IBM says bad data costs $3.1 trillion per year, across the United States (IBM 2016).
Experian says, on average, 32% of U.S. company data is bad (Experian 2013).
API Wizard provides data accuracy, validation, and duplication avoidance tools that are much more sophisticated than anything Oracle provides. When using API Wizard, you'll not only process your data faster but it will also be more accurate, which provides significant additional value to the enterprise.
Watch the videos below to learn more about API Wizard
These videos are examples, there are thousands of processes you can perform in API Wizard!
This is a very simple example of using API Wizard for a granular, purpose built process. API Wizard offers the flexibility to have simple Loaders like this or more full-functionality Loaders depending on your process requirements.
In Oracle EBS, vendor site updates are super-tedious, forcing users to go in an out of vendors, change tabs, use the mouse repeatedly for each record to change. In this example, see how quickly a vendor site update can be made across a large number of vendor sites in API Wizard!
Vendor Site Update
Enable/Disable GL Code Combinations
In this example, see how we can query up a range of code combinations and then enable or disable them. Working with a large range of combinations is quick and easy in API Wizard. Compare this to the Oracle form, which doesn't provide a useful way to filter just the accounts you need to updated, only shows a few accounts at a time, and forces you to click and tab multiple times! In EBS forms, it's a painful and tedious process. In API Wizard, it's a breeze.
Fixed Asset Adjustments
In this video, two use cases are presented. The first is a simple example of just making changes to a couple of fields. The second is a more involved use case using a Loader which has dozens of fields. In both examples, an extraction report is used to pull existing asset info out of Oracle to make the adjustment process even easier!
Other common Fixed Asset processes performed in API Wizard are Additions, Mass Additions, Retirements, Reinstatements, Transfers, Unplanned Depreciation, and more! Best of all, they are all super easy to use!
Create/Update Suppliers and Supplier Sites
Need an easy way to create and maintain Suppliers and Supplier Sites? Here it is! API Wizard makes supplier and supplier site creation and maintenance a breeze.
In the Oracle forms, this is one of the most tedious processes. The form layout is confusing, there are many tabs, each with sub-tabs. It creates a data entry nightmare. In API Wizard, it's super-simple!!!
Organizations find this process so useful, it often leads to a data cleanup that wasn't possible before API Wizard.
Inventory Items and BOMs
In this example, we will first use API Wizard to create Items (there are tons of options here but that's for another video) and then use those items that we just created to create a new BOM.
The Item process is so much easier than working in Oracle forms (where you have to pick an inventory org, drill into a form with a dozen tabs). The BOM process is also vastly superior to Oracle forms, particularly if you have BOMs with more than just a few components, which get unwieldy in Oracle but are easy to work with in API Wizard.
Item Min/Max Update
This example shows how easy it is to make item updates across a range of items and inventory orgs. In this example, we are updating Min and Max but you can update whichever fields you want and as many or as few fields as you want. Common mass updates we see customers make are to Default Buyer (when a buyer leaves), item accounting, min/max and other planning fields, descriptive flexfields, item descriptions, and more!
What ever you need to update, you can do it drastically faster and easier than you can with the Oracle forms!
Create and Update EBS Responsibilities
API Wizard makes working with Oracle EBS user and responsibility functions much easier than working in Oracle forms. IT help desks can reset Oracle passwords without having the bother of logging into the Oracle forms (a several minute ordeal in and of itself).
Easily add, activate, or inactivate users and responsibilities.
Don't let your IT team members be data entry clerks, give them a tool that makes this tedious work easy!
Customer (Vaisala) Testimonial
In this customer testimonial, Vaisala, an environmental and industrial measurement product manufacturer based in Finland, describes the benefits their organization receives using API Wizard and details how they initially started with a 5-user license and a handful of processes and later upgraded to an enterprise license and implemented a global rollout of API Wizard for several EBS business processes.
Bill of Materials
If there is a more tedious process in Oracle EBS, we're not sure what it is. The standard Oracle form only shows 7 components of a BOM at a time, which makes it virtually useless for anything but very simple BOMs. With API Wizard, working with BOMs, even large ones with hundreds or thousands of components, is ridiculously easy.
This video demonstrates the use of an extraction report used both when updating an existing BOM as well as using an existing BOM as a template for creating a new BOM.
Customer Testimonial - Sleepy's
In this Customer Testimonial, Sleepy's, one of the world's leading mattress providers, discusses the significant improvements that API Wizard has made to their organization.
Additionally, Sleepy's highlights how easy to use API Wizard is, as well as the outstanding support they received from the API Wizard staff, which helped Sleepy's solve multiple Oracle EBS challenges across the enterprise.
