Eliminate Spreadsheets!

This is our underlying philosophy; any financial system that relies heavily in spreadsheets is inefficient by definition. Spreadsheets are fine for backup support like amortization schedules and can come in handy when documenting certain journal entries, but are quite simply not the best solution for day-to-day financial reporting. If you are currently exporting anything to Excel or Lotus on a regular basis for data manipulation, know that there is a much easier and more reliable option.

Some further reasons to limit use of spreadsheets:

* No drill-down capability
* Time-consuming to prepare
* No persistent logic
* Easy to make mistakes
