Name an organization that doesn’t use spreadsheets. Although handy, they aren’t optimal for team collaboration. Spreadsheets are used for everything from contact lists to project management but are notorious for being difficult to maintain in a team environment.
So why replace those archaic spreadsheets with an automated tool? Here are the top 5 reasons why a SaaS tracking solution is the way to go:
As more and more companies hop on the “work from home” train, even the “work from home when the weather is bad” train, it has become evident that having a real-time collaboration tool is essential.
Who last updated the spreadsheet, and where is the new copy? Classic fail when it comes to having up to date, reliable data. A software as a service, or SaaS product, ensures that all data is up to the minute and everyone on the team is aware of who is doing what, in real-time!
This goes without saying that creating reports manually from spreadsheet data can be a very time consuming and cumbersome task. Using an automated SaaS tool with good built in reporting is not only effective, it is accurate and up to the minute.
Searching through emails to find that one email that has the information on where to find the latest copy of the spreadsheet is one of those time vampires. There are more important tasks at hand than to waste time searching through emails.
Over time, spreadsheets become so bloated they become fragile, you are now at risk for compromising your valuable corporate data.
We are approaching a classic business disruption point, where new technology is displacing existing tools and best practices.
