Did you know that second only to email, Excel is the most widely used tool each and every day by the business user community? In fact, with over 500 million users, Excel is the number one reporting and analysis tool used globally. As we all know, Excel has some very powerful features that we love, but even with that, we can often experience delays in getting critical information to decision makers because of the need to export, supplement and format data that comes from our business applications like Sage 100. Don’t get me wrong, most business software’s built-in or canned reports serve a useful purpose, but there are numerous times when we need to tweak that info a bit to get to exactly what the management team needs to see to make effective business decisions.
