MerlinXL is an Excel based tool that allows users of HFM retrieve data from HFM in a similar way to Smartview, but with added benefits of being able to produce dynamic reports that can easily be customised and adapted by end users to meet their requirements.

MerlinXL has also brought significant benefits to our intercompany matching process through its Intercompany Wizard which allows intercompany mismatches to be viewed in Excel. Intercompany reporting mismatches can be identified faster than is possible using standard HFM matching reports and has allowed the company to speed up our month end close process.

The Report Wizard in MerlinXL has been well received by our users and can be used to create reports that can be adapted to suit user needs and which are much more flexible and dynamic than what can be achieved with standard Smartview Excel formulas.

MerlinXL has been a successful investment that has benefitted finance users within DS Smith and this presentation is intended to highlight those benefits.
