Do you constantly have piles of paper on your desk and in your truck? Are you spending half your day with your nose in spreadsheets and sorting through sheet after sheet of paper? Do you even have the latest copy of that spreadsheet, or is it hidden away in another email?
There must be a better way to run your business. Excel is a great tool for some things, but it definitely isn’t made for running your core, day to day operations, at least not at the accuracy you need to turn a profit at the end of each month.
How much are spreadsheets costing your business?
Studies show 88% of spreadsheets have errors. This is leading many to ask the question: “Is Excel the most dangerous piece of software in the world?”. In 2012 Investment bank JP Morgan traced a 6.2 billion dollar trading loss back to an error that originated in a spreadsheet used by account managers to calculate risk in investments. In construction, we’ve heard countless stories about employees being underpaid, less about being overpaid (although it happens just as often), and missing billable equipment and materials at the time of invoicing. How many of your clients allow you to re-issue a final invoice because you forgot something…? We’ve also heard about those infamous spreadsheets that have had far too many hands in them. Once a spreadsheet has been emailed and passed around to five people, it gets to the point where everyone has made changes, manipulated it to get their way, and it’s not even readable anymore.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could avoid all these headaches, risk, and wasted time?
This is where a cloud based database & app comes in. Strictly defined workflows, only allowing people to select from the dropdown options you define, and not allowing each user to hide or manipulate data to get their way. Most importantly, you don’t have to wait for that dreaded paperwork to be handed in by everyone. Adopting technology into your business will solve all the headaches, allowing you to accurately and efficiently gather data from everyone, and give everyone instant access to all the information they need to do their job effectively.
