How spreadsheets limit your business efficiency
Large data capture, distribution, analysis, to name a few, are the tasks that are difficult to perform with spreadsheets. When large data is collected, the task to input it into the sheet is intimidating and time-consuming at the same time. Despite significant efforts to input precise information, data entry errors are more likely to affect the quality of data captured.
Sharing information with departments through spreadsheets means additional efforts are required on the part of person in charge. The time spent on sorting through spreadsheets to trace required information and then collecting them all to transfer to different departments is usually large, especially when feedback, ideas and other requirements are stored in separate files. Moreover, there is no way to relate these files to each other. It is due to this reason only that data analytics is challenging with spreadsheets. Since entire information is not available in an organized form at one place, patterns are difficult to understand and hence is data intelligence.
