Cons

Some of the error messages are hard to decipher when using the software and the functions have confusing variables to put in at times.

Anonymous Reviewer

The software cannot be readily integrated or harmonized with other information systems. The software is totally insensitive to human errors; it does not prompt the user when there is an error.

DG

When there is a large amount of data entered into a spreadsheet it's inevitable to have trivial human mistakes made. Sometimes it's very difficult to find those mistakes later.

Excel, it is spreadsheets

Reviewed 4 years ago

I am able to combine and join multiple data downloads from multiple sources, with ease using excel.

Pros

I have found over the years that the ability to write a complicated formula once, and then have it just plain work over and over again, is a gift given to the workplace.

Cons

Multi core support could be better. I find sometimes refreshing data connections to take a little longer than they should if Excel was optimized better to use more of my hardware.

Excel solve a lot of the reports issues on my company as he is used to make several calculations and validations.

Pros

The best feature is that you can make several spreadsheets with many macros and graphics. The product is easy to use and once you get into it, you can do deeper analysis. The integration with existing business was very easy and the business loved it.

Cons

I think the feature that is difficult to use it the macros and the join with access as if the user does not know how tu use it, it's hard to learn by himself.

Excel is easy to use

Reviewed 4 years ago

I have used it for auditing data across clients and carriers. This allowed me to ensure the separate spreadsheets all matched before loading it into our systems.

Pros

Excel is easy to use and acts as any other Microsoft product. It allows you to use it for your business to calculate formulas, create charts, and forms that are easy to use by others. You can add formulas to the spreadsheet to auto-calculate based on specific information entered. You can join 2 spreadsheets together and use vlookup to provide specific information for a company/client.

Cons

vlookup can seem cumbersome until you learn how to use it in excel.

The option of macros allows you to realize all kinds of automythical operation

Excel is a jack of all trades

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

In my opinion, Excel is the most powerful, robust, and best software of the Microsoft suite. It does it all! So many times you might be tempted to start a list in a Word document, but just think: if you type your list in Excel, now you can separate out cities from states (or join them together), you can alphabetize by last name (or first), you can filter out any Nos and quickly select your column to have it automatically count how many people RSVP'd YES or send the follow-up email just to the MAYBEs, you can with just a couple clicks create a pie chart showing the percentage of respondents are coming...it truly seems to do it all.

Cons

While Excel does enable you to hyperlink a cell, it doesn't let you hyperlink a particular word or phrase within a cell like you can in Word; certainly understandable, but would be convenient if you could.

Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet Tool

Reviewed a year ago

Excel has been extremely beneficial in my current role in vendor risk management, allowing me to effectively track completion of annual reviews and share status dashboards with team leaders.

Pros

Microsoft Excel is a widely used, multi-purpose spreadsheet software. I have used it since my college days 20 years ago, and throughout my accounting career since then. Currently in my risk management role, I use Excel for various vendor reviews and documentation tracking. After setting up an Excel template, I can easily see open items through the use of conditional formatting to highlight items, and percent completion of various tasks through Excel formulas. Because Excel is so widely used, new staff or interns who join our team even temporarily typically have a basic understanding that allows them to effectively use our Excel spreadsheets.

Cons

Some of the functionality of Excel takes some focused training to fully understand. It can be difficult to use it to its full potential without that training.

Business solution with no better alternative

Reviewed 3 years ago

I used Excel as a student, where I carried out basic tasks. I kept using Excel as IT Business Analyst where I extended the amount and type of functions I used. I carried out project management and basic data analyses in Excel. Finally, for the past year or so, I work as data scientist and I sometimes use Excel to carry out data cleaning and inspection on Excel because it's the good old pal I know. Excel is my best tool at work and I totally, even emotionaly love Excel.

Pros

The ease of use, amount of functions, possibility of things can be done, writing functions within functions, giving link to cells between sheets and other Excel files. It's almost possible to create a database-like structure using VOOKUPs, HLOOKUPs, which result in "Join"s. Functions have not only basic operations such as sums, dot products, but also return statistical parameters too. For instance,...

Cons

As I explained above, I work as a data scientist and I sometimes deal with huge amount of data "BIG DATA". As much as I love working on Excel, unfortunately Excel sometimes cannot handle big data, especiaily if there are millions of rows. That's the only downside of Excel I can think of.

Reviewed 3 years ago

This program is great for making budgets, payroll, forecasts, reports, statements, calculators, inventory programs, but it is also a great tool for graphically displaying the research part of a thesis. Using functions and formulas, it also enables you to perform financial calculations and mathematical tasks. A particular company can solve its organizational and operational problems wit Excel, too. The time spent on a task can be greatly reduced by the program. Excel is excellent for both private, professional and business use, too. Very good. I can only recommend it to everyone!

Pros

The software is well-designed, accurate, precize and transparent. It is easy to manage and offers new opportunities all the time. It is doing its job very well. The application is very useful for me, I use it daily on both PC and Android device. Thanks to OneDrive, where I stop working on one device, I can continue on the other. I can easily work with it anywhere! That's great! It does its job on both...

Cons

Occasionally stops for a few seconds during editing. Many times it does not paste the formulas properly and moves the pasted text elsewhere. Sometimes it can process a 5-page document in 20 minutes. When you open a large file, it removes or does not display the entered formulas. Many times it freezes or crashes during the workflow of large files. Sometimes Excel opens in a different language and I always have to switch to my native language afterwards. Fonts are often confused. Excel cannot open two documents of the same name.

What is most outstanding about JoinIt is their customer support. I manage 100+ Software-as-a-Service installations in my professional life and have never experienced better customer support than what JoinIt provides. Almost instant responses to tickets by super-knowledgeable staff, problems resolved very quickly, whether they're issues I caused or perhaps the rare problem at their end. Kudos to JoinIt.

Pros

Easily handles our membership management needs with a minimum of fuss. Handles payments through Stripe transparently. Also handles off-line payments without much bother. Imports member lists through Excel and from MailChimp. Excellent value for the money. Tremendous customer support (can't say this enough!)
