Common Spreadsheet Needs

You may have one or more of these common spreadsheet needs.

You Need A Reliable Spreadsheet Designed By A Trustworthy Pro

You need an accurate spreadsheet than you can rely on to make decisions. You’re tired of the calculator. You’ve finally said no to back-of-the envelope analysis. You could probably develop a spreadsheet yourself, but you don’t have the time. And you don’t have the energy to research which formula to use, to insert ‘check figures’, and to ensure accuracy

You Need An Efficient Spreadsheet

You have a specific business need that you know a spreadsheet can accomplish. You don’t have the time to research and test every formula that you need. You’re not confident of the accuracy. You’d prefer to outsource the whole thing and be done with it, and quickly.

You Need To Improve A Legacy Spreadsheet

You’ve inherited a spreadsheet that’s slowly stopped working over the years. Your legacy spreadsheet has broken formulas or dubious accuracy. Your spreadsheet has too many errors such as #REF, #NUM, and #N/A.

You Need A Spreadsheet That Appeals To The Eye

You’ve got the functional nuts and bolts down, but you just can’t make it look good. You want a pleasant spreadsheet design that you don’t cringe to look at, and you want a user-friendly spreadsheet experience. You’re going to use your spreadsheet a lot, and you want that experience to be pleasurable. Or at least not miserable.

You Have An Urgent Spreadsheet Deadline

You’re in a pinch and need this done in a week or less. You had an unexpected problem arise which needs an immediate solution. Or you’re just now getting to a known problem, and realize there isn’t much time left.

You Want Proven Results

You know that everyone thinks they know Excel. Until they try to do something new in it. You want a pro whose best practices were honed by building hundreds of spreadsheets. You know that you get the highest value when you hire the best to leverage their experience and efficiency.

You Need A Long-Term Metrics Partner

Your spreadsheet Is just the start. Once your spreadsheet designer has a solution in place, you want a financial analyst consultant to improve profitability and efficiency with a formal metrics program. You want key performance indicators, dashboards, and suggestions from a trusted financial analysis consultant. You want all that without the expense of a full-time financial analysis.

Your Spreadsheet Solution

You Get A Reliable Professional Spreadsheet Design

Your spreadsheet is reliable because it’s accurate. Your spreadsheet is accurate because your designer uses built-in ‘check figures’ and stress tests the formulas. Your spreadsheet is built to encourage consistency and to prevent common errors. Whenever possible, your spreadsheet has drop down lists instead of data entry cells. Your spreadsheet can lock down cells that should not be changed.

You Get An Efficient Spreadsheet

Your Excel formulas are accurate and efficient Excel programming. Your spreadsheet designer know which formulas are memory hogs. Although your spreadsheet designer has 32 GB of RAM, your designer knows that your probably don’t. So, you get a spreadsheet without bulky clunky memory-hogging formulas. And your spreadsheet consultant draws on experience to choose the best, most accurate, least volatile formulas in your spreadsheet.

You Get A Modernized Spreadsheet

Your professionally designed Excel spreadsheet is customized for your needs. Your formulas are audited and improved. Your spreadsheet efficiently utilizes modern Excel features such as Excel tables, pivot tables, pivot charts, slicers, timelines, the data model and power pivot.

You Get An Aesthetically Pleasing Spreadsheet Design

Your spreadsheet looks pleasant to the eye. Your spreadsheet design incorporates best practices learned from hundreds of spreadsheet design experiences. Your spreadsheet has intuitive layout and flow.  Your custom Excel spreadsheet has good spacing between lines and sections and lots of white space.  Your spreadsheet has impactful but unobtrusive coloring and shading.

You Get A Long-Term Metrics Partner

In addition to a spreadsheet consultant, you get a financial analyst with decades of data experience.

Your Custom Excel Spreadsheet Design Process

1. Your spreadsheet specialists listen to your needs, ideas, and specifications in a discovery call.


2.  Your spreadsheet gurus examine existing materials that you may have:

    • Lists
    • Screenshots
    • Examples you’ve researched
    • Existing or old spreadsheets. templates, or Google Sheets

3.  Your spreadsheet designers create a proposal with a cost and delivery date.


4.  Your spreadsheet experts revise the proposal based on your feedback.


5.  After you accept the proposal, your Excel spreadsheet programmers develop your bespoke spreadsheet and send you the first draft.  Typically, half of the cost is due up front..


6.  Your Excel experts revise the drafts until you are satisfied with your final customized Excel spreadsheet or Google Sheet.


7.  Once you’re completely satisfied, your Google Sheet experts send you the final custom made spreadsheet, custom template, or custom Google Sheet design, and you pay the other half of the cost.


8.  After delivery, your spreadsheet consultants stand behind your custom spreadsheets, custom templates, and custom Google Sheets.  Your consultants will resolve any issues that you might run into.  Work outside the scope of the original project will be charged separately.

Professional Excel Spreadsheet Designers v. Excel Programmers

Your Excel spreadsheet designers have a natural eye for design honed by years of experience. A friendly user experience requires:

  • Accuracy
  • Intuitive layout and flow
  • Lots of white space
  • Good spacing between lines and sections
  • Impactful but unobtrusive coloring and shading

Many Excel spreadsheet “designers” are really just Excel programmers who do fine creating accurate formulas, but lack the skill set to provide a user-friendly experience and design that is pleasant to the eye. You demand excellence, and with us, you get the whole package.
