Bespoke Spreadsheet Design

View of Excel SpreadsheetMany businesses and individuals use spreadsheets to store and handle data or automate calculations. Sometimes they wish that they could do more with that data; but lack the skills to take it further and design their own spreadsheets. Often it is a case of lacking the mathematical confidence or an understanding of Excel; else they have assumed that the problem is too complex for a spreadsheet.

A very versatile piece of software

Excel is not restricted to simple calculations; but has several hundred functions in many different categories; from accountancy and financial modelling, to Mathematics, Science and Engineering or Statistics. Others will search a whole column or row to find a particular value or close match, or pull in an item of data from a linked sheet.

The resultant saving of time is the greatest benefit for a business user. A calculation which might have taken nearly an hour is done in seconds; the time spent is merely that required for inputting the raw data. Should a change be needed; there is no need to repeat and check a tedious calculation; merely re-enter the updated item(s) and it is recalculated. The result can be printed out and presented to your client, accountant or whoever.
