ANALYSING CSV FILES
Data is becoming more and more abundant as everything moves online, and we are all collecting our fair share of business data. The key is understanding your data. If you know what data you have, and you understand what that data means, then you are on the front foot when it comes to making business decisions. This is vital when running a successful business.
The data which you have collected, can often be exported as a CSV file, which is similar to an Excel file, but not quite the same. The problem is that the data is often just dumped into the CSV, and is usually not clear or comprehensible. If you have the data available, but don’t understand it, what is the point? There is none, that is why we came up with a solution.
We create custom spreadsheets, which will accommodate you to copy your data, and paste it into the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet will then spring to life, generating bespoke reports, showing you exactly what that data means.
Would you like to some examples of spreadsheets analysing and reporting on CSV data? Here are some options.
One of our largest clients, uses many spreadsheets to analyse all sorts of data, which gives him the edge in his industry. Not only this, but he is also able to see what his data means, which enables him to make the best decisions moving forward. This is the referral which he gave to Richard (the owner of Spreadsheet Solutions).
We have been working with Richard on a number of initiatives in relation to retail management and overall business development. This relationship was born out of a companywide frustration of playing with API’s in which we regularly found inconsistencies in data. Richard has enabled us to create a methodical and accurate system for reporting in a number of key business areas including purchasing and accounting. The team have grown very fond of Richard for the simplicity he is able to breathe into a technical problem to allow us to solve the conundrum together. This along with his friendly manner and fast turn around times on projects means the team are coming up with more innovative spreadsheet solutions all the time!
Please do not hesitate to contact us for a verbal reference.
Now that you know that there is a solution for better understanding your data, we would love to create some custom solutions for you. Simply send us a copy of the CSV file which you would like to better understand, and tell us if there are any specific reports which you would like to see.
