Spreadsheet Management Solutions
A huge number of businesses rely on Microsoft Excel to drive their processes in both a client-facing and internal capacity. For external services, we’ve already devised Excel-to-web-app software which offers companies a spreadsheet management system that gives customers and clients the ability to make complex calculations and input key information without altering your company’s proprietary formulas and data sources.
But what about sharing spreadsheets within your business? When Excel files are being copied, edited and transmitted between staff, managing and controlling these files can quickly turn into an operational quagmire, with version confusion, propagated errors and copies getting into the wrong hands. What’s more, with the rising numbers of staff members working remotely, everyone running their computers from different networks can increase your business’s vulnerability to hackers, putting your intellectual property at risk.
Introducing EASA Sheets
EASA Sheets provides companies with a server-based Excel spreadsheet management system that secures the most current versions of their spreadsheets, maintaining control over access and file handling for any end-users of these files.
How does EASA sheets work?
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 a central relational database, then deleted on the local device.
5. Other users may open either a “clean” version or select a previously saved instance from the database.
Our unique spreadsheet management system eliminates the chaos of multiple users saving multiple versions of a file, giving managers a far higher level of control over the versions of Excel used on machines on the local network.
EASA Sheets also allows users to save their work into a central and shareable database, enabling analytics, collaboration and searchability that is often impractical or impossible to be done with traditional folder-drive-naming convention based systems.
What are the benefits of enterprise spreadsheet management?
No version confusion
With EASA Sheets, the “master” copy of any spreadsheet will be saved on a secure server, and users will always be guaranteed they are accessing the correct and most up-to-date version of the document.
Unlike other spreadsheet management software, EASA Sheets can be configured to not permit local saving of files. This makes it impossible to copy the spreadsheet, send it as an attachment to emails, or download it to a separate storage device.
The data you save in EASA Sheets can be made available to any authorized users, allowing users to start with a spreadsheet which has been prepopulated with previously saved data from other collaboration team members.
Since everyone gets either a clean copy of the spreadsheet, or one populated with data from a previous instance, users of EASA Sheets won’t have to be concerned with being locked out of the file they’re using when someone else is accessing it.
Instead of saving your individual spreadsheets as “flat files”, EASA Sheets can extract key information such as inputs and outputs, then places them into a central, relational database. This is a key feature of spreadsheet management, letting users conduct filtered searches, perform data analytics, and integrate information with business intelligence dashboarding software.
Rapid implementation and deployment
EASA Sheets requires minimal preparation, letting you begin your spreadsheet management tasks for multiple files extremely easily and quickly.
