Excel as Business Software
Why do we use Excel to create business software? This shows why we use Excel, and why it benefits your business to put this powerful tool to work.
Dashboards are vital to directors in the current business climate. We have so much data at our fingertips today, more than we have ever had before, but does the data tell you what you need to know? As a director, you are busy, and you don’t have time to sit and analyse data. You want to see a clear, and to-the-point report of your data, so that you can make the best decision as fast as possible. This is why dashboards are so important. They convert your raw data to useful information, providing you with the knowledge to make the right decisions for your business.
This is a very popular request. Have you made a spreadsheet yourself, perhaps with a few tabs and some basic formulas? It just about does what you need, but now you want to upgrade to something more comprehensive or automated. We often get sent spreadsheets just like this, and we’re asked to make an upgraded version. Send us your spreadsheet and let us take a look at what we can do to improve it.
How does a bespoke standard product sound? This may sound like a contradiction in terms, but is actually quite a useful service. Would you like us to make a standard product, branded for your business, so that you can get associates or clients to purchase it? If so, then this is for you.
Analysing SCV Files
With mountains of data available, these spreadsheets are becoming more and more popular. Think about it – most social media websites, CRM systems, software packages and other business solutions will export your data to a CSV file. Do you know what that data is telling you? If not, we can create a spreadsheet to receive the data from your export and analyse it, to produce a report which will tell you what you want to know.
Why You Need a Spreadsheet
If you own or run a business, managing, analysing and reporting on processes and business data is key. We supply businesses from one-man bands to multi-national corporations, and we love to create custom spreadsheet solutions for any purpose. If you would like to see why you need a bespoke spreadsheet solution for your business, then take a look.

Programmed Software or a Spreadsheet?
If you’re wondering whether you need to move to programmed software, or whether you just need your spreadsheets upgraded, take a look here. So many businesses buy unnecessary software, when a spreadsheet will do the job (sometimes even better). We have made some notes about when you do need to move to software, and when you just need a better spreadsheet. This should help you to make the right decision.
