Our Challenge

Every day, millions of people use spreadsheets for business-critical processes. However, running these spreadsheet processes is painful. Sharing and collecting spreadsheet data is done manually, too many emails are sent back and forth, keeping track of all changes and file versions is cumbersome and leads to loss of control and transparency.
