Small businesses and booming corporations alike are struggling to manage ever-growing stacks of data. When data management processes are outdated, it can often seem like you are drowning in a seemingly endless pile of Excel spreadsheets. Between managing clients’ contact information and storing sensitive passwords (which is a huge security concern), it can all just seem a little overwhelming. But you are not alone. Being able to efficiently manage sensitive business data is a common desire among clients we work with.

We know it can be hard to let go of methods that have worked for you for many years. Excel spreadsheets are no exception. We work with many clients who have become quite attached to their many spreadsheets. But what if we told you there are solutions out there that could save your business so much time and money? Making the switch to real-time data management strategies may seem daunting if it’s not something you have done before, but it does have many benefits – which will drastically increase productivity and efficiency in your business as a whole.

Aggregating business data can minimize costly repercussions occurring from common, manually entered mistakes. When you have numerous employees manually entering data into spreadsheets, it’s no wonder you end up with a handful of often innocent, yet costly, mistakes. Going back to correct these mistakes just adds more time to your day when you already have a full plate.

Are You In Excel Hell?

And that’s just one of many concerns with using outdated spreadsheets. Nowadays, many projects require consistent collaboration among various team members. But spreadsheets make that a near-impossible feat. They are just not set up to be a valuable resource for team projects. Spreadsheets can be locked unintentionally rather easily, causing complications with team members being able to access the document (not to mention if the creator of the spreadsheet ends up being out of office for a period of time). By investing in a real-time data management solution, collaboration is made easier than ever. You can quickly and efficiently communicate with team members company-wide, allowing projects in the queue to be handled rapidly by employees across various locations.

With real-time data management solutions, you also significantly decrease your risk of data corruption and lost data from broken spreadsheets. Let’s face it. Excel has been around forever and spreadsheets are notorious for breaking. Functions break. The system crashes. This all puts your data at risk. When a spreadsheet breaks, data can be corrupted or even lost and it can be impossible to get back. Real-time data management solutions keep your data stored in a modern, much more secure manner.

Skip The Spreadsheets & Learn To Efficiently Manage Your Business Data

These modern day solutions can also save your team members valuable time by automating many of their everyday workflow processes. There is so much being done manually which can be made much more efficient through automated workflow. It’s no secret time is money. And time spent manually entering data into and revising spreadsheets is time that could be spent planning initiatives which will help scale the overall business.

We recently helped an organization named Quest manage their time more effectively. We helped them ease the transition from paper to digital, making field support work effortless across the organization. Data entry and management were seamlessly connected enabling users to see critical data in real time – and reducing wasted efforts.
