EASA Sheets

Excel “chaos” is a common situation resulting from users saving multiple versions, lack of security of intellectual property embedded in spreadsheets, and unintentional edits by users. EASA provides a unique Excel spreadsheet management system that eliminates this chaos, and this includes EASA Web, EASA web services and EASA Sheets.

EASA Sheets provides a server-based system that secures the most current versions of your spreadsheets, and controls access and file handling for the end-users of these Excel files. The graphic below displays the architecture, and the steps for utilizing it are described below the graphic:

Using EASA Sheets involves the following steps (shown in above graphic)

    1. User requests required spreadsheet which resides on the central or corporate network.
    2. The EASA software clones copy of “master” and sends a protected version to the user.
    3. User makes use of the spreadsheet.
    4. On Save, the spreadsheet data is extracted by EASA and saved in central relational database, then deleted on the local device.
    5. Other users may open either a “clean” version, or may select a previously saved instance from the database.

Benefits of EASA Sheets

  1. No version confusion – As the “master” copy of the spreadsheet is saved on the server, only the correct and most up to date version is delivered to the user.
  2. Enhanced security – EASA Sheets can be configured so that it will not permit local saving of spreadsheets, making it impossible to have the spreadsheet attached to emails or copied.
  3. Database functionality – rather than saving individual spreadsheets (“flat files”), EASA extracts key information such as inputs and outputs, and places it into a central, relational database. This allows filtered searches, data analytics, and the ability to integrate with BI dashboarding software.
  4. Multi-user access – There is no locking out of users since everyone gets either a clean copy of the spreadsheet or one populated with data from a previous instance
  5. Collaboration – the saved data can be made available to any authorized users, enabling them to start with a spreadsheet previously populated by someone else.
  6. Rapid implementation and deployment – EASA Sheets involves minimal preparation and enables multiple spreadsheets to be managed extremely easily and quickly.
