TRANSITIONING YOUR SERVICE BUSINESS FROM SPREADSHEETS TO A FIELD MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
WHY SPREADSHEETS ARE HARMFUL TO YOUR BUSINESS
There are several reasons why organizations should stop using spreadsheets to run their business. A few key disadvantages of using spreadsheets are:
- Unavoidable Errors
- Limited by Project Size
- Lack of Security
- Reporting is Painful
- Lack of Integration
- Lack of Collaboration
- Unfit for Working Remotely
Research has shown that 88% of spreadsheets contain errors that can lead to miscalculations and revenue leakage, drastically affecting small to mid-sized businesses.
LIMITED BY PROJECT SIZE
Using spreadsheets is practical for small projects but when it comes to running a business, spreadsheets are not effective. It's difficult to share a spreadsheet among several team members due to the possibility of data being accidentally deleted. This can reduce the productivity and profitability of an organization.
LACK OF SECURITY
Spreadsheets are less reliable and are easier to hack, corrupt, and possibly lose vital data. There is no access restriction to your spreadsheets. For example, your employee could send your data to the competitors.
REPORTING IS PAINFUL
The more complex a project is, the harder it is for a business to compile and extract all the pertinent data. On average, organizations spend 12 - 18 hours per month updating and consolidating spreadsheets.
LACK OF INTEGRATION
If your organization's sales & marketing systems operate with spreadsheets, that can create miscommunication with customers and prospects might not receive the most updated information.
LACK OF COLLABORATION
When it comes to multiple users, spreadsheets aren't designed for collaboration. Only one person can access and edit the data at a time, which makes it difficult to work together and verify each user has the most updated version.
UNFIT FOR WORKING REMOTELY
The COVID-19 pandemic reshaped the business landscape, which forced employees to work remotely. A recent study shows that 59% of Canadian employees now work remotely. Another study shows that 56% of the U.S workforce now work at least partially remotely. Companies want to use a program that is accessible anywhere and anytime. Therefore, it would be very difficult for spreadsheets to satisfy those criteria.
