Stop Spreadsheet Anarchy

George Langan on stopping spreadsheet anarchy.It’s not uncommon for a business to be run virtually these days. Meaning that employees are in different geographic locations collaborating via the Internet. However, there are times when it may be necessary to be in “the same place at the same time” so-to-speak, and times when it’s necessary to view information simultaneously.

Our featured guest in this episode of Small Business Trends Radio is George Langan, CEO of Expresso. With humor and interesting anecdotes, George sheds light on how to collaborate with others in multiple locations over a single Excel spreadsheet so you always have the most up-to-date version.

Here is a sampling from the show:

  • It is now possible — to collaborate with others by uploading spreadsheet documents into online software and sharing it with others in various locations.
  • Data security — with online services obviously an issue that is top of mind for many. With a service like Expresso, a number of securities are in place such as data encryption, password protection, authorizing specified users, etc. Many tools are in place to protect your data and maintain your security and privacy making your online experience worry free.
  • Customization — is available for additional security measures, superior control and convenience. You can give people the ability to “view only” a spreadsheet, edit a spreadsheet, and/or download and copy a spreadsheet — you are in complete control of how much access you wish to give someone to your spreadsheet. By setting alerts that notify you when someone has downloaded the spreadsheet, you can now be made aware that your data has been removed from the system and when. Watching, tracking and tracing are additional security measures that give you peace of mind when utilizing the system.

George is an insightful guest and shares many suggestions and tips for making the most out of your online collaboration experiences while protecting valuable data and information when doing so.

    I currently use the services of Expresso and am very pleased with it. It’s easy to understand, navigate and utilize and it offers some great detailed customizations as well. Some of which are touched upon in the post above. Makes it much easier to deal with spreadsheets and also have the peace of mind knowing that should a computer catastrophe happen, they’ll all be safe.
