Over 1 billion people use Excel for their finance activities. For decades, spreadsheet software has offered a fairly simple, very flexible approach for gathering and analyzing data. That doesn’t work so well these days with the enormous amounts of data that companies have access to. Excel lacks the flexibility and environment to manage all of this data and to give the visibility needed to make strategic decisions. Excel can be an excellent tool for simple productivity, but it becomes an issue when it becomes a financial tool. This is why it is important to find an enterprise cost and profitability system that has the capabilities to enhance your business, instead hindering its success.
