The Challenge

Organisations utilise a mix of IT systems and Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheets scattered between teams to help run portfolios of projects.

This brings three broad, negative outcomes:

Higher Cost

Due to the cost of the manual effort required to collect and manipulate data.

Higher Risk

Due to lack of control, high error rates, no audit trail & gaps in the data.

Lower Performance

Due to decision making using data which is incomplete or days / weeks old.

Connected Intelligence™ overcomes this by connecting spreadsheets together, making them secure, robust, scalable, error checked, fully auditable and altogether smarter.
