Leader in spreadsheet deployment software – Excel is the most widely used business tool in the world. However, it is designed as a desktop solution rather than an enterprise tool, and when critical spreadsheets, often with VBA and macros, are made accessible to multiple users within an organization, then the result is often loss of version control, unsecured intellectual property, compromised reliability and integrity, and lack of any auditability – otherwise known as “spreadsheet chaos”.
