Signs you’re
outgrowing Excel

More often than not, Excel is the go-to tool of choice for finance teams. But when you rely on workarounds and spend too much time manually manipulating data, or fighting with version control, it might be time to consider an automated, scalable, and integrated solution like Workday Adaptive Planning.

Inefficient Workarounds

No real-time integrations with GL, payroll, ERP, and other systems leave you overrun with manual maintenance of static spreadsheets.

Disparate Systems

Excel provides a historical snapshot of the numbers at a single point in time, meaning you’re spending your time digging for data instead of working on strategy.

Limited Scalability

Excel lacks the ability to easily model dynamic variables in a changing, growing company and the impact on departmental budgets, P&L, balance sheet, and cash flow.
