Custom Solutions using Microsoft Excel

Ideas That Excel provides custom solutions to business problems using Microsoft Excel.

Instead of spending thousands of dollars on new software why not utilize your existing software to its fullest potential?  Through the use of Excel’s VBA programming language we can create and automate solutions to your business information headaches.

Some of the ways we can improve your productivity and profits include: 

Automation of Existing Reports –  Do you have a report that you spend hours and hours on every month? A report that takes your hours to complete could take just seconds.

Make Data Exports from your ERP System Actually Mean Something Many ERP systems can export data directly to Excel or as a text file; unfortunately many times they come out as a scrambled mess.  In most cases we can create a solution in Excel that can clean up the data and make it into a usable export of data directly from your ERP system.

Create A Custom Piece of Software to help run your business –  Using Excel to it’s fullest potential we can create a custom spreadsheet that acts as customer piece of software built to your specifications.  Before using up your IT budget buying another software program contact us.  We might be able to save your thousands of dollars by creating a solution in Excel that runs with the click of the mouse.

A perfect example of what can be accomplished with Excel was a monthly “Workcenter Hours By Division” report I had to complete.  I downloaded data from our ERP system into Excel and then had to create totals by division & WC.  I also had to search out duplicate line items and delete them.  At first it took me about 6 hours to complete every month.  As I improved by Excel skills & learned how to write macros using VBA this report eventually was completed every month in 15 seconds, using only 1 click of the mouse!
