Excel & Spreadsheet Design

Software-Matters have been experts in Excel and spreadsheet design for over 20 years. We can help with all projects, whether it be a simple single sheet workbook or a more complicated macro-based application with VBA programming, that perhaps even links to a database (Access, SQL Server etc.). We are based on the borders of Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire and have clients across the whole UK, including London and the north and east as well as those closer to us. Whatever your need, big or small, there is no doubt we can make your life easier.

Why use Microsoft Excel?

Using Excel to manage your business or projects is a no-brainer for most small operations. It is a commonly known program that provides all the foundations for a simple business administration system. This makes it quick and cheap to develop advanced spreadsheets with custom features that can do exactly what you need, avoiding the wasteful spending associated with off-the-shelf packages usually intended for large and unspecialised uses (e.g. Sage).

When you consult with us and describe your situation, we'll let you know from our decades of experience whether Excel spreadsheets will be an appropriate tool for your current needs and future goals.

Excel Design and Programming specialists

With Software-Matters taking care of your project you'll know that you have years of expertise backing every design decision. We will talk through your needs and come up with designs we believe will work best for you and your team. Once a design is agreed on we will go ahead and create the system, often using advanced formulae, formatting techniques and VBA programming (macros). We put an emphasis on clear and intelligent development practices to minimise downtime and allow other developers to pick up where we left off if you wish to continue your project with someone else in the future.

Need something more?

If you are thinking of developing a substantial system, or have tried and failed with Excel before, it might be the case that your project needs a custom database instead. A database provides more power, more usability options and is in general the best and most common solution for business administration available. But the costs, lead time and learning curve can be higher for databases than spreadsheets, so make sure to ask our experts what would be best before committing to a solution.
