Let’s face it, spreadsheets have their limitations. In terms of ROI of working with a spreadsheet, one needs to focus their time and make sure it is best spent with a system that will deliver. Regardless of the size of your business, your organization requires the best solution to make business happen and allow for room of growth and flexibility within your team.
Spreadsheets don’t offer this, and if you and your team continue to work with spreadsheets over the long term, the data recorded will depreciate in value compared to using our Enterprise Cloud Tracking System to manage your data efficiently. Its hard to maintain spreadsheets and they often go by the wayside due to their cumbersome nature.
Spreadsheets don’t work within a team-centric environment for collaboration. Sharing it on a common drive or emailing the spreadsheet, opens your organization to risk and loss in revenue. Plus there is little to no security on who actually views the data within your spreadsheet, and any changes that are done, are most likely not archived within the spreadsheet.
Inconsistency & errors will always appear, its human nature. People are creatures of habit and we as people are prone to make errors within a spreadsheet environment. Many people who have switched from a spreadsheet to a Cloud based Tracking System can attest to this. Spreadsheets will always be riddled with errors.
Spreadsheets are disconnected from a team’s ideas, and feedback to a particular subject or project may or may not be reflected in it. Trying to use a spreadsheet may not reflect the flow of what is attempted to be achieved and information can be lost with the inability to properly attach documents or files to the spreadsheet.
The inability to plan or schedule meetings within the spreadsheet. Your organization will need to resort to another product to allow for notifications or scheduling of meetings. All of this can be obtained in our Enterprise Cloud Tracking System.
The last item and yet the most important is the inability to create reports. Your organization requires data and the ability to create reports from this data is essential to be competitive within your industry.
