So Long Excel!

Alright, Excel isn’t actually being retired on anything like that. It remains a great tool and of immense use to accountants etc.

But… all our new projects this year share one common characteristic; they are migrations from Excel-based business solutions. In each case, the client had a very fully developed Excel sheet but had got to the stage where it was simply no longer adequate because;

  • It wasn’t multi-user
  • It didn’t support multiple recordsIt didn’t really support business processes. In fact, this was a voyage of discovery for some; the business rules were shaped by what Excel could do…
  • The interface was… well, it was a spreadsheet
  • It wasn’t available from multiple devices and locations simultaneously

Excel is great, but it is what it is, and it isn’t a database.

So if you know of someone who is getting bogged down by using Excel to do something it wasn’t intended to do, we can help!
