Manual processes in spreadsheets and desktop databases
How do you implement new processes, quickly and efficiently? Let’s say, the sales team needed a new, integrated, customer insight and reporting tool. Or finance wanted a new invoice matching and analysis system…
Developing these process and putting them into action isn’t a tame, tidy effort. There are always other priorities to deal with, paperwork to wade through and time-consuming hoops to jump through. In short: even the simplest new processes can take time, effort and dogged determination to implement.
When this happens, teams often resort to manual workarounds, such as mixing SQL, spreadsheets and desktop databases.
Manual processes are not IT-compliant
Sadly, these quick fixes are not IT-compliant. Time marches on and more data is added. People put more and more reliance on these makeshift solutions. Clunky workarounds are patched in, such as multiple spreadsheets, for multiple users.
With so much manually entered data, the systems are prone to error, requiring more and more staff to find those errors and fix them. And rarely are these processes documented. Staff leave. Holiday is taken. This leads to more stop-start delays and further inaccuracy. Needless to say, security is also an issue with no centralised policies in place.
