Are you in Excel Hell?

Excel Hell is a term coined by the IT industry.

It’s become a common situation: An area of a business creates a series of interconnected Excel spreadsheets, which then become critical to their operation.

But these spreadsheets are poorly designed, undocumented and created without the involvement of the IT department. And then they stop working.

In a panic, the first thing your employees will do is call IT. But this is the first they’ve heard of this spreadsheet. They weren’t involved in creating it, and they have no idea how it should work, or why it has just stopped working.

So then what do you do?

Answer: Don’t wait until this happens. Take action now.

Start by asking yourself the following questions:

 Do you actually know how many business critical Excel spreadsheets are in use across your business?

 Can you confidently say where they all are, what they’re all for, who uses them and how they all work?

 Could your business continue to function if you lost key members of staff with knowledge of those spreadsheets?

If your answer to any of these questions is NO, you need to talk to us.

There are a number of ways we can help you — and you may be relieved to know that spreadsheets are not always the answer!

Happy Employee with Accurate Reports

Why is reporting important?

To make informed decisions and plan the future course of your business, you need quick and easy access to vital information.

For example, you need to be able to monitor the effects of earlier decisions on your key metrics, like sales, production output, use of resources and profitability.

And, if an opportunity arises and you need to make a quick decision, you might need this data immediately.

The problem: Collating accurate reports, in a timely manner, can be extremely difficult.

Pulling data together, from different sources — and making sure that data is correct and corresponds — is often far from quick and easy.
