Business Spreadsheets vs Custom Software

Are you still using business spreadsheets every day to track your most important business tasks? While Excel is a great tool for some tasks, you’ll find that in this day and age, it’s time to move on to a better solution. 

Custom software is a great replacement for business spreadsheets, and you’ll find that you can finally replace the dreaded Excel sheet once and for all.   Let’s take a look at how you can stop wasting hours of your day on a spreadsheet for your business and finally get your time back for the things you enjoy doing. 

The frustrations of using a business spreadsheet

Excel sheets have helped businesses in many industries for years at this point. However, many employees and business owners are sick and tired of using overcrowded and complicated Excel sheets. While you might think that Excel is quite straightforward, if you need to do more complicated tasks, it can be a nightmare to teach your employees what to do.   Team members spend hours battling these sheets when they could be working on more important tasks. If something goes wrong, you risk losing all of your hard work. Not to even mention the issues with sharing Excel sheets and compatibility. 

Many businesses are now searching for a replacement for their spreadsheet for business use. They want to gain back their time and energy and spend it on tasks that will take their business further.  Business owners see the frustrations that their team is experiencing and want to make their lives better. No matter what area you are operating in, you’ll find that custom software is a much better tool than Excel sheets. You’ll have a solution that’s designed solely with your business in mind.  We’ll only add the features you need, so you no longer have to tackle the dozens of functions you find on Excel. 

How custom software can solve your business spreadsheets issues 

Are you ready to leave your business spreadsheet use in the past? If the answer is yes, you’ll find custom software to be the best solution for this issue. As the name suggests, custom software is designed only with your business in mind. Instead of being a one-size-fits-all solution like Excel, you’ll have a piece of software only designed for your needs.  

We’ll work with your team to understand the current frustrations you are experiencing first. From there, we can put the features you need into your new custom software.  We’ll only add functions you use each day to avoid any issues for your team. Of course, if you find that you need something else in the future, we’ll simply add this to the software when the time comes to offer you an improved solution. 

The benefits of using custom software over business spreadsheets

There are so many reasons you’ll want to switch over from Excel to custom software. These are just a few of the advantages you’ll notice once you make this change with the help of our team. 

Save time 

While Excel seems like it would be something that would save your business time, that’s rarely the case. Many team members struggle to understand the functions of Excel. They waste hours trying to get it to do the most basic of tasks. If you are sending this sheet to members of your team who struggle to work on the computer, you’ll find that it’s painful for everyone in your business. 

Instead, custom software will feature only the functions you need and use regularly. It’s designed with you and your team in mind, so we will work to improve their efficiency and make their lives much easier. 

A cost-effective solution 

Many companies fear that custom software is out of their price range. We recommend you take a look at some of the examples of past projects we’ve worked on to replace your business spreadsheets. You’ll find that we work with businesses of all shapes and sizes. Even if you work alone currently, this could be all you need to stop you from taking on another employee. It’s a great value for money option that you’ll find gives you years of use. 

You’ll never have to worry about paying to upgrade your software or renew it each year. Instead, you can just work with us when you need new features added. We’ll be here to support you as your business expands, creating a solution that will last for many years. 

Easier to teach new employees how to use your business spreadsheets

When you welcome new employees into your business, you are no doubt keen to get them straight to work. However, many employees need to spend weeks getting to grips with your Excel sheets.  Save yourself time and energy by creating custom software that is easy for everyone in your organisation to use. Even the most inexperienced computer users will be able to use a solution we create if it’s made with them in mind. 

If you choose to work with our team, we’ll discuss with you who will be using your software in the future. We’ll design the software with the end-user in mind and get their input where needed. By learning about their struggles at the start of the project, we can understand how we can make your business more efficient in the future.

Spreadsheets for businesses are now a thing of the past. It’s time to put your frustrating Excel sheet aside.  Instead, start looking for new and improved ways to keep on top of your data.
