Use Excel as a calculator…
… and stop using it for the close!
Only if you enjoy spending 10 days at the end of every month frantically aggregating hundreds of spreadsheets, checking for errors, and hoping for accuracy. Every accountant knows that hope isn’t an ideal close tool. Neither are spreadsheets.
There’s a better way:
– Accountants love it because it eliminates manual drudgery and automates repetitive tasks, leaving them more time for analysis.
– CFOs love it because they can ensure more gets done in less time, even as the company scales, without increasing headcount.
– CEOs love it because they can access real-time financial information without waiting for the completion of every close task.
