In our previous segment on “Why You Should Ditch the Spreadsheet” we detailed how time consuming using spreadsheets can be, and how many hours out of your daily work schedule they can take. Up to 18 hours in fact, according to Ventana Research.

Today, we are going to tackle problematic aspects of spreadsheets and why/how they can be prone to error.

In another research conducted on spreadsheet usage (yup, more research. The more you know, the more you grow. Am I right?) up to 88% of spreadsheets contain errors. Woah! That’s pretty eye opening when you think about almost 9 out of 10 spreadsheets in your organization today likely have a mistyped cell or erroneous calculation. Why and how is this? Most spreadsheet errors happen due to a mistyped word or calculation, copy and pasting an already existing error, and just lack of knowledge on functions of a spreadsheets proper functions.

With so many tasks to do in any given day, it’s understandable that mistakes happen. But, with Syngency, we take that margin of error out of the equation.
