Are Spreadsheets heavily used in your organization? You are not alone. Spreadsheets are one of the most flexible and easy-to-use applications that you can get off the shelf. They can be used for just about anything. For this reason, they ARE used for just about anything. Many organizations use spreadsheets as a phone directory, reports, to-do list, project list and all sorts of other lists. Others use them for more appropriate tasks like budgeting, payroll and other financial requirements. The truth is that spreadsheets may be an affordable and quick way to get your business process up and running. However, it may not be the best long-term solution.

Imagine a carpenter that uses a hammer to cut wood, or to drive screws. Can this carpenter get the job done? Of course he could. But not as quickly and efficiently as a carpenter using the right tools for the job. Same happens with spreadsheets. Businesses overuse them and depend on them too much. They get used to them and don't think of other ways of getting the job done. But not anymore since you are reading this. There are better and smarter ways to run your business processes.
