Microsoft released Excel over 32 years ago and, in that time, millions upon millions of spreadsheets have been created.
There are now so many spreadsheet programs available that you need a spreadsheet to collate them all!
The fundamental features of Excel haven’t changed much, in that it can handle a great amount of data, display graphs and figures and be programmed to perform many different tasks.
There’s even an old Japanese artist who uses it to create his masterpieces!
Excel Spreadsheet Uses
Although Excel wasn’t designed with awe-inspiring artwork in mind, if you’re talented enough, you can make it.
Excel was also not designed to record every single financial business record but, if you are talented enough and willing to go through the painstaking process, you can.
It’s not impossible to do either of these things in Excel, but it’s very time consuming.
Not everyone wants to spend that amount of time using Excel to create artwork, and you don’t have to spend that time using Excel to get business figures either.
What’s Wrong with Spreadsheets?
In the main, there’s nothing overtly wrong with using spreadsheets but, in a business sense, there are a lot of issues that will plague your business for a long time should you get stuck in a rut.
As your business grows, you’re more than likely to use spreadsheets at some point.
As you become more successful, relying on spreadsheets will not only hinder your growth but severely affect how successful your business can be.
The longer you rely on multiple spreadsheets and the duplication of data between files or software products, the more chance a mistake will impact your business negatively.
This is a fact, and we’ve written about it before.
Stop Using Spreadsheets
One of our customers, Josh from Petite Waffles, used a large number of spreadsheets to run his business until it became too much.
Watch the below interview with him to see how easy it was for him to switch from using spreadsheets to taking advantage of Accentis Enterprise and all the features we have on offer.
As you can see, even though Josh had an extensive spreadsheet collection to manage his business, he was much happier when he was able to use Accentis Enterprise and focus more on his specialty: waffles.
That’s exactly what Accentis Enterprise can do for your business.

Excel spreadsheets are common in many businesses because they are easy to use and do the job when you start using them.
