MS Excel is a spreadsheet application developed by the Microsoft Corporation. Excel is an important analysis tool for business professionals since it creates spreadsheets, graphs, and performs a variety of other functions, including sorting and managing your data. It is relied on by many financial professionals and it seems, and just about anyone from any industry interested in performing data intensive research. Here are a few:
A simple spreadsheet can keep excellent track of product sales and customer data without your company having to spend money and resources on data tracking solutions. Professional business reports, quarterly statements, sales invoices—all can be created within MS Excel. A simple ledger formatted according to your needs can be created for updating or maintaining information essential to your company.
Despite its easy to use nature, do not be fooled. The spreadsheet application is also highly advanced and powerful enough for professional accountants and book keeping. It is commonly used for ledger purposes where deposits, budgets, income, and revenue earnings can be analyzed. Microsoft Excel simplifies the process with the many functions that can manipulate hundreds of rows of data. To make the accountant’s job even easier, Excel templates with preset formulas can be downloaded for complex audits, saving you the time on creating a spreadsheet layout from scratch.
Although Excel is primarily associated with numerical data, it is also used for non-numerical data as well. Users specializing in manipulating and mining data can take advantage of Excel’s many sorting and filtering functions. This is especially handy when dealing with statistical information. Microsoft Excel’s specialized functions allow researchers to get that information into a more manageable form for analysis, allowing them to easily spot out trends, patterns and overviews of the information they collect.
