Basically everyone who has even a cursory understanding of IT or computing has heard of Microsoft Excel, even if it’s just by knowing it as ‘that spreadsheet program’.

The truth is however that Excel is so much more than that and, when properly used, has the capacity to be an invaluable asset to your business!


Hidden Gems


Though Excel is of course a superb spreadsheet program, it has so many more features that can be exceptionally useful to a business; features that often go unused and unknown.

Features such as VBA (Visual Basic for Application) programming, use of macros and other advanced and extremely useful tools mean that, with proper use, Excel can be transformed from a simple number cruncher into a vital asset.

Using Excel to its full potential means you:

  • Save money
  • Save time
  • Streamline processes
  • Free up resources
  • Ensure data accuracy
  • Maintain consistency

 All of this, plus so much more, means learning how to unlock the hidden power of Excel is a no-brainer for any business wanting to make the most of their resources.



Traditional Problems


Businesses are finding more and more that traditional web or desktop applications just aren’t always providing the desired results and are not always the right solution.

The reasons for this are numerous, but here are a few:

  • The design and development of traditional desktop/web applications is time consuming
  • IT projects quickly become unmanageably large and complicated
  • Involved IT infrastructure costs money to maintain and costs spiral
  • Keeping the system updated is a complicated and difficult task
  • The data needs processing and often needs to be combined with other external data sources for insights

 These are just some of the reasons why people are starting to truly understand the benefits of Excel; benefits which are the perfect antidote to the above difficulties encountered by businesses using traditional methods.

The benefits


The benefits of using Excel to its full capacity are numerous, but here are just a few examples.

Firstly, a great deal of time is saved when it comes to making your idea a reality. Excel’s intuitive nature and ease of adoption means that you can have your idea to market and a working prototype in as little as two to four weeks.

Also there is the issue of familiarity. Most people who use a computer have at least a basic understanding or some exposure to using Excel.

This means:

  • Low employee adoption barrier
  • No additional infrastructure/licensing required
  • Minimal, if any, maintenance costs

All of which will be an enormous advantage to your business.
