8/15/16 - API Wizard is First Oracle Partner to run EBS on Oracle Compute Cloud

API Wizard, the leader in Oracle EBS productivity, is the first Oracle partner to run EBS on Oracle's Compute Cloud.  Leveraging the value of cloud computing has become a high priority for many organizations but until recently, there hasn't been a good solution for EBS customers.  Oracle's On-Demand is widely considered too restrictive, third-party hosting doesn't truly provide the benefits of Cloud, and Oracle's Cloud ERP application is geared mainly at mid-market organizations or departments within larger organizations.  With EBS on Cloud Compute, organizations can run full-scale Oracle EBS in the Cloud.  API Wizard, due to our strong relationship with Oracle, was selected to be part of the early adopter program for this service.  We have had an excellent experience with our EBS Cloud environments.

10/8/15 - Corie Winter joins API Wizard management team as Director, Strategic Partnerships

API Wizard, the leader in Oracle EBS productivity, is pleased to announce Corie Winter as the new Director of Strategic Parternships.

"Corie brings over 15 years experience in the Oracle EBS market and has the distinct benefit of starting out as a user in the Order Management module, so she knows first-hand how tedious working through the Oracle forms can be," says Rob Lepanto, Director of Oracle Solutions at API Wizard.  "With a background that also includes many years at an Oracle EBS consulting firm, Corie is perfectly positioned to help grow API Wizard's partner channel."

"API Wizard's model is really incredible.  Anyone with exposure to EBS knows that there are users out there spending hour upon hour laboring in Oracle's poorly designed user interface," says Corie.  "The inefficiency is astounding.  With API Wizard, the same work is done with considerably less effort, saving time for the users and reducing cost for the organization.  For partners, API Wizard provides the first real opportunity to significantly reduce the time and cost associated with data migration projects, a savings that helps them win more Oracle work and provide more value to their customers.  I couldn't be more excited to help API Wizard extend the reach of its partner channel."

As Director of Stategic Partnerships, Corie will be responsible for engaging Oracle EBS consultancies and educating them on how they can provide more value to their customers using the API Wizard platform.  Additionally, she'll be working with third-party software developers who leverage API Wizard as the technology that they build their products upon.

Before joining API Wizard, Corie was a partner at AppCentric, LLC, an Oracle EBS consulting firm based out of New York City where she served the dual role of engagement manager and sales support.  In this role for over a decade, Corie has been involved in numerous Oracle EBS implementations, conversions, and data migration projects.  Corie also previously worked at Konica Minolta, where part of her duties involved working hands-on with the EBS Order Management module.

2/2/15 - Sarah Conzemius joins API Wizard as Vice President of Business Development

API Wizard, the leader in Oracle EBS productivity, is pleased to announce Sarah Conzemius as the new Vice President of Business Development. 

"Sarah brings over 20 years of successful and highly relevant business experience in the Oracle EBS market," says Richard Volpitta, Vice President Customer Experience at API Wizard.  "She knows the Oracle EBS market and has worked with hundreds of Oracle customers over her career."

"I am excited to be part of API Wizard and spread awareness, letting Oracle users and I.T. teams know they no longer need to patch together multiple solutions to handle all of their data processing needs," says Sarah.  "API Wizard is the only user-friendly, Excel-based enterprise tool on the market that handles all Oracle data entry, data updating, reporting and development needs."

As Vice President of Business Development, Sarah will be responsible for developing and executing API Wizard’s market development, sales, and strategic business planning.  Sarah will work with the entire API Wizard team to identify market opportunities, fulfill prospect and customer needs, and ensure the highest level of customer service and satisfaction.  Sarah will develop a personal working relationship with API Wizard’s current and future customers and will be instrumental in ensuring that all customers maximize their strategic investment in API Wizard.

Sarah has been part of the Oracle EBS industry for two decades, previously working for More4Apps, where she served as Director of Sales, and before that at Noetix, where she served as a Territory Manager.  In both of these roles, Sarah was exposed to many of the pain points from which Oracle EBS customers struggle.  Sarah says, "Having worked with both IT folks and business users has given me a broader understanding of what each of them go through on a day to day basis, and my goal is to help them bridge the gap and bring both groups together with solutions that satisfy the requirements of both IT and the business users, while making both groups happy and more efficient, and saving their company a lot of time and money! "

Sarah understands the gaps in Oracle EBS functionality, and has identified solutions to fill these gaps to make businesses run better. Sarah was one of the first people at Noetix and played a significant role in growing their business from startup mode to becoming the industry standard for metadata solutions for Oracle Applications. While working for Noetix, Sarah visited hundreds of customer sites to demonstrate how NoetixViews worked. At that time, you needed a front end BI tool to use NoetixViews so Sarah became very familiar with using products like Discoverer, Cognos, Business Objects, Crystal Reports and more. The one common question asked nearly every time at customer sites came from the business users, “Can I use this with Excel?”.  It became clear that most business users prefer using Excel to do their data extractions, reporting, analysis and updating. Sarah says “While IT departments sometimes get frustrated that users want to use Excel for everything, one thing that has not changed is that users still choose Excel as their preferred method, so rather than fight it, let’s embrace the functionality Excel has to offer while offering a secure format that enforces Oracle security rules so IT is more comfortable with what is being done in EBS, while still keeping users happy and more efficient.”  Sarah is excited to join the only company in the market that fulfills that vision.

Sarah says there is no particular customer type that has this need, as every customer has different requirements, but that there does seem to be a universal need to solve the data processing challenges in Oracle and the opportunity to do this in one tool, rather than a hodge podge of mixed solutions, better serves the customer overall and is more cost effective.  It is much easier for customers to maintain a support and maintenance relationship with one supplier rather than rely on multiple software vendors, consultants, and Oracle support. API Wizard provides that “one stop shop” for data processing in Oracle EBS.

Sarah has worked with companies in many different industries such as GE, Walgreens, Eaton, Mastercard, Nordstrom, Panasonic,Jack In the Box, Wyndham, Starbucks, Amazon, and hundreds more.  She has found many different requirements out there in terms of customers struggling with data processing issues in Oracle.  For example, many retail organizations may have a high invoice volume they need to upload and they find manual data entry too time consuming and error prone, many construction companies have ongoing Projects they need to keep updated but struggle with field workers updating the data without Oracle access, manufacturing customers often struggle with keeping their inventory stocks accurate and updated, new Oracle customers needing to convert legacy data into Oracle EBS, companies acquiring other companies and needing to transfer or retire assets or add the new employees, or any company who needs to make mass updates to their existing suppliers or customers.

There are so many areas where customers need to get data in—and out—of Oracle EBS and there is only one solution out there that gives them access to update and report on all of the EBS modules in one tool, API Wizard.
