Microsoft Excel

Knowing how to use Excel is more important than you might realise. Regardless of your business (and profession within that business) understanding Excel is something that will prove incredibly useful to you. You may know the basics, such as adding and averaging values in cells, or perhaps how to use VLOOKUP or how to create a drop down list in Excel. But knowing all of that might not get you incredibly far when trying to understand your data and metrics, and by extension, reporting on them.


We understand that you have to be productive in your business, and unless you are proficient in Excel, you may well find yourself spending hours creating reports, rather than focusing on other important tasks. It might be a case that data might not be easy to understand, and certain people within the business might not be aware of the most effective way to utilise or display that data.


Microsoft Excel allows you to manage, manipulate and analyse data, which in turn helps your decision-making. Whether you are using it in your business or for personal expenses, Excel has all the tools you need to accomplish your goals and make life easier for you.


What can Microsoft Excel be used for?

Excel is a versatile tool that can be used for just about any purpose. Here are just a few:

  • Analysing and Storing data
  • Identify Trends
  • Schedules
  • Budgets and Expenses
  • Data visualisation via Charts
  • Forms
  • Invoices
  • Timesheets
  • Reports
  • Agendas
