These days technology has a hand in almost everything we do. In fact, it seems no daily task remains untouched by the power of tech. When it comes to the operations of your business, technology plays a vital role too. Embracing the latest and greatest technology in-house can have a positive impact on business success as well as help you save time and money.
Spreadsheets are a major part of business processes for companies big and small. But as times change and technology evolves, there’s a better way to manage the data that’s important to your business. And thankfully, there’s not a spreadsheet in sight!
Here we take a closer look at why you should replace your business spreadsheets with dedicated software, as well as reveal the long list of benefits that go hand-in-hand with doing just that.
Spreadsheets no doubt serve their purpose. But whilst Excel was once a business’ best friend, having too much reliance on spreadsheets has the potential to be very damaging to your company.
Excel after all isn’t the most secure or robust system to manage your data. Spreadsheets can be easily modified, deleted or misplaced, as well as subject to data loss and theft. Replacing these with dedicated software however can help you beef up your security no-end.
Specialised software incorporates various security measures to keep the data you hold dear as safe as possible. It also offers a safeguard against data theft.
For teams using spreadsheets, software provides extra reassurance. Each team member will have their own login details to ensure any changes made are tracked and attributed accordingly.
Reliability is key when deploying any software. Excel may be more versatile than many people think – with the right management it can be used for more than just data entry and can even run Monte Carlo simulations and financial models – but it hits a brick wall when completing specific, company-related tasks.
By replacing spreadsheets with software, you can take data control up a notch. Dedicated software can even be tweaked to perform specific tasks that are directly related to your business. We’ll work with you directly to develop a bespoke software solution that works for you.
The process begins with the analysis of your current spreadsheet management system. Our team of senior developers will then create a software specification package that meets your company’s unique requirements.
Our custom software solutions can also be reliably used as a centralised database, providing easy access to multiple users at any one time.
The user friendliness of spreadsheets is very much up for debate. Yes, mastering the art of Excel isn’t for the fainthearted! With custom software, you don’t have to experience head scratching moments every time you enter or manage data.
Dedicated software is created with performance in mind, and you don’t need a Master’s Degree to get to grips with it and handle those business critical processes.
The bespoke software we’ve pioneered uses real-time communication to its advantage. Your team can update with ease, track changes made by other employees, and access documents wherever they are.
