Excel Consulting for Small Businesses

Managing a small business isn't easy. You have to manage staff, suppliers and clients, all whilst trying to grow your company. That's even before you stay abreast of any changes to the law or trading environment. The only way you can find the time to develop your business is by doing everything as efficiently as possible. That includes the way you use Excel, and our Excel consultants can provide you with all the support you need.

Single Click Solutions

Even micro-enterprises generate a lot of data. Much of this will get put in Microsoft Excel. You may have specialist software for your accounts, payroll, perhaps even some business specific applications...but, for anything else, the most cost-effective and accessible data storage solution tends to be Excel.

You may use Excel for your timesheets. Or at least as a place for employees to record their hours worked. Someone may then have to enter these figures into the payroll and, generally, that person will be either yourself, or a hardworking secretary. It may be that you still use the same system with 30 employees as you used to with 3. If so, it may be costing your business time, and the opportunities that time represents.

If faced with this sort of issue, you need to figure out the best way forwards. You may be able to find an off-the-shelf solution to your problem. However, you may require something more bespoke. Our consultants can work with you to produce an elegant solution to any spreadsheet or database problem. We are experts at cutting back on administration by building single click solutions to problems.

Asking the Right Questions

One of the key benefits of working with Excel4Business is the experience we bring to the table. We have worked with firms like yours in the past, and nearly always worked on similar problems in the past. That means we know the questions to ask, and exactly what we need to consider.

Our consultants ask the questions a simple programmer would forget. Such as "how big could your company become?" and "how much do you intend to use this spreadsheet?" Your answers will guide us in the way we construct our solution.

We can create fantastically flexible spreadsheets but there's no point over-engineering a file if it's going to cost you more. By working with you on the project scope, we can fix the project price at outset. We can provide everything you need today and, where it makes sense, everything you might need in the future. Although we enjoy repeat business, you should never have to come back to us with something we should have got right first time round.
