It’s the end of the quarter – always busy for finance – and my boss just asked for a new monthly Excel report detailing each department’s expenses. I know I can build the report, but I just don’t have the time for trial and error.
Carla’s time is at a premium. She needs help.
Made the Call
She calls Vitalyst and reaches a Productivity Consultant immediately.
The Productivity Consultant gathers specs for the report and a few lines of sample data. In less than an hour, he sends back an Excel file template with the necessary macros, formatting and formulas.
As a finance person, Carla is very well-versed in Excel. But she had just been upgraded to Microsoft Office 2010 with its new features in Excel, and she was in the midst of quarter-close deadlines. Her corporate finance group uses Vitalyst as a resource when they need expert help with Excel. Carla was able to tap into that resource to meet her deadlines for the quarter-close and the new report her boss had requested.
My boss was happy and so was I. Vitalyst saved me at least 6 hours by building and testing the Excel template for me, not to mention alleviating the time pressure I was under with these competing deadlines.
