What’s the one thing that can set a business back years? Outdated software. What worked for your business at the start won’t at its prime. So if spreadsheets were your workhorse in the “good ol’ days,” using them after you’ve grown can result in stagnation.
Spreadsheets, being static and predominantly single-user tools, aren’t amenable to scaling. When your business inevitably grows, and people and processes get more numerous, spreadsheets find themselves in hostile territory. They’re overwhelmed by data overload, choosing to slow down and crash instead of processing it. Errors come with the package. Collaboration outside of email attachments or SharePoint is unheard-of.
So what happens when you choose to ignore these problems and hope they go away? You guessed right—disaster.
When spreadsheets fail, databases come to the rescue—but while most are advanced, and capable, they’re also unnecessarily complicated. They get the job done, but only if you invest a fortune in setting them up and hiring a professional to manage them.
Disheartened? Don’t be. Because we have something that’s simple, fuss-free, and effective.
