A Few of Our Clients

Excel Programing Advantages


We maximize your return on investment

There are many improvements that can be made to a spreadsheet, but often these don’t yield a return – either in saved labor or increased accuracy. If we don’t think that a proposed project will deliver a tangible benefit to you, we will recommend against it. Visit the Sample Projects page to learn how we have helped dozens of clients.

We leverage our vast knowledge

Building real world Excel solutions for over 30 years has taught us a lot – taught us a lot about how best to do things and taught us which approaches to avoid. We leverage that accumulation of knowledge with each new client to help us deliver the best solution in the shortest time possible. We are Excel consultants; we are also tireless students of Excel.

We bring a balanced approach to your project

We maximize the return on investment to our clients because we bring a balance of business and technical expertise to our Excel consulting services. We leverage that balance to find the right solution for each unique problem, using the most effective tools that Excel has to offer. Sometimes that solution is a very sophisticated spreadsheet, other times it is a simple spreadsheet. It is always the most cost effective solution available.

Excel Programming & Consulting Sample Projects

Import to General Ledger

Industry: Construction

Business Need:

Get data from estimating spreadsheets into the general ledger accounting system. Users had previously entered the data manually, which was very time consuming and prone to error.


We created a spreadsheet between the estimating spreadsheets and the general ledger accounting system that pulled the relevant estimating data then converted the data into a format that could be directly imported into the general ledger. The solution also validated that all of the estimating data was accurate and identified errors before importing into the general ledger.

Benefits to the Client:

The solution saved the client over 2,000 hours of manual entry per year and significantly increased the accuracy of the data entering the general ledger.

Return on Investment Marketing Piece

Industry: Medical Equipment

Business Need:

The client needed to communicate the return on investment of their products to doctors in an attractive, easy to read marketing piece.  Users needed to be able to complete the analysis quickly and easily while in front of doctors and to convert the analysis into a PDF file that they could print or email.


We constructed a spreadsheet that separated inputs from the analysis, and simplified the number of inputs required to complete the analysis.  We also used the companies color scheme and logos to create an attractive marketing piece that fit well with the company’s other printed material.

Benefits to the Client:

Because the spreadsheet was so easy to use, the entire sales team quickly adopted the spreadsheet and ensured that all were conveying a consitent message to all prospective custmer doctors. 


Lab Testing Management System

Industry: Energy

Business Need:

The client is a major oil company that engages 100 labs to perform dozens of tests on petroleum products.  Results are then collected and combined in a single spreadsheet where they are analyzed and outliers identified.  The spreadsheet was very cumbersome to use and performance was extremely slow, often requiring several minutes to recalculate after test results were uploaded.  The upload would also crash if any of test result files contained errors.


Quickly analyze the spreadsheet and suggest modifications to improve performance and stability.  We then implemented several targeted changes that addressed the performance issue and elegantly managed problem test results without affecting the overall upload process.

Benefits to the Client:

Benefit to Client:  We were able to modify the existing spreadsheet versus creating a new spreadsheet, saving the client thousands of dollars of development effort.  Our modifications improved spreadsheet performance by over 2,000% and corrected the flaw that caused the upload to fail.

Insurance Rate Analysis and Report System

Industry: Insurance

Business Need:

The client is a regional health insurance company that offers dozens of plans from several providers.  Rates from the various plans change quarterly and the client must be able to quickly analyze thousands of rates to present the best options to their clients.


We created a spreadsheet that allows the client to automatically imports thousands of rate coverage records in one step.  The spreadsheet then categorizes the rate records into predefined buckets, summarizes the data into an easy-to-read report and highlights the best values.  Finally, the spreadsheet converts the report to PDF format for easy distribution.

Benefits to the Client:

Benefit to the Client:  The rate analysis and report system reduces the time required to prepare data by over 90%.  The automated reports are created in less than two minutes and ensures 100% accuracy.

Why Choose Us

We Build Real World Excel Solutions

Trust us to be your go-to solution for Excel consulting.

We focus on results

Many Excel consultants and Excel programmers focus on all of the technical experience they have with Excel, such as with charting, PivotTables, writing VBA code and creating formulas. While we have over 30 years of experience in all of those areas and more, we think this focus misses the point. We focus on one thing – delivering solutions that save you time and money. If we can’t do that, then all of the technical experience in the world won't matter to you.

We continuously add to our toolkit of solutions

We develop new solutions and devise new approaches with every project. This includes leveraging tools outside of Excel where appropriate, such as integrating with Microsoft Access to manage and analyze large data sets, or accessing Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Outlook to streamline workbook and report distribution. The experience we gain from every past client helps us to develop the best possible solution for every future client.

We won't waste your time

If you aren't sure whether we can help, take a couple of minutes to describe your business needs to us. (Visit the Contact Us page.) We will be able to tell very quickly whether or not we can help, at no cost or obligation. If we don't think we can help or if we think a solution is not cost effective, we'll tell you so. If we think we can help, we'll describe how.
