Excel is a remarkable and powerful tool which helps businesses to maximize the value of their data. It is easy to use, familiar and offers a lot of possibilities. Every department in an organization would have their own use for Excel such as budget lists, sales reports, data loading, compliance tracking etc.
The problem with Excel is that it transfers unstructured, stores data into stand-alone spreadsheet files with no back-end support. Companies often end up with thousands of Excel files containing sensitive Enterprise data spread across various unsecured desktops and shared drives.
Salesforce on the other hand provides you data security and structure while it lacks the universal appeal and simplicity of Excel. If you use Excel and Salesforce, moving spreadsheet data manually to the Cloud Platform is a very tedious and error-prone task which does not provide any form of value addition.
X-Author gives you the best of both worlds by allowing Salesforce users to access the Excel UI for their tasks and transferring these files to Cloud using the Salesforce Platform. This allows companies like you to make use of Excel’s simplicity and speed while benefitting from Salesforce’s secure, intelligent and collaborative environment. As spreadsheet data is now treated as an extension of your Salesforce Platform, this helps companies to improve enterprise visibility.
With X-Author, current Salesforce users enjoy a productivity boost of up to 90 percent for applications such as opportunity forecasting, marketing promos and case management which are typically simpler to perform in Excel.
