When Replacing Excel is Not an Option
Sometimes you really can’t replace your Excel spreadsheets…
Often bad mouthed and even ridiculed, Excel is none-the-less a critical tool for many companies. Its universal familiarity, immense flexibility and power, and agility to be adapted at the speed of business enable it to take on very specific and custom functions simply not available in dedicated, off the shelf tools, and the cost of custom coding a replacement is often prohibitively expensive and time consuming.
Attempts to tame Excel with web sharing tools often end in frustration when your VBA, macros or add-ins fail to work, or you are still faced with unsecured intellectual property.
EASA’s unique and patented technique has been specifically developed to allow organizations to embrace, rather than replace their well developed, proven and valuable spreadsheets, all the while eliminating the common pitfalls and chaos that ensue when spreadsheets are shared and used to collaborate – problems like lack of version control, no IP protection, formula overwrites, inability to conduct analytics, etc.
Rather than replace spreadsheets with expensive, difficult to maintain and deadline busting custom developed software, or the costly option of transferring all the logic into a commercial, specific purpose tool that requires an extensive roll out and refamiliarization, EASA takes your existing spreadsheets to a whole new level of polish and security as a browser based web app. The web app serves as the user interface that completely eliminates the downloading, copying, editing and emailing of Excel xls files that causes so much chaos and exposure. The web app can also drive entire workflows or software processes where it is not just Excel, but involves other software systems such as databases, CRM software, CAE, ERP systems and the like.
