Situation & Strategy

Case Study Strategy: 

Prior to implementing Spreadsheet Server, RCMC was using a complicated, manual, slow process for reporting. They knew they needed a faster, more efficient turnaround process than the one that was previously in place. They no longer wanted to have to rely on IT to simply create and distribute a report, nor did they want to spend the time learning a new query language or deal with a cumbersome proprietary interface tool—they wanted a painless process in the familiar environment of Microsoft® Excel.

Software Implementation

Case Study Software: 

Spreadsheet Server converts Excel into a tightly integrated analytical tool for any ERP system. Users can leverage the strength of their spreadsheets with seamless dynamic integration to their information, along with powerful drilldown capability to the lowest level of detail. It allows users to build a range of reports from simple ad hoc workbooks to complex dashboard-type views of critical business data.

Distribution Manager automates the distribution of reports from Microsoft® Excel.


Case Study Results: 
  • 1-2 day implementation and training for intuitive, user-friendly products
  • Report distribution efficiency transformed from a complicated multi-step process to an integrated product solution
  • Replaced the manual, time-consuming reporting process with automated reporting and distribution

In a Nutshell

Case Study Summary: 

Spreadsheet Server is now used for entire board packet, balance sheets, income statements, cash flow statements, and ratios. What used to take 2.5 days, now takes less than 8 hours and their analysis of data has increased due to the enhanced productivity!
