When Your Excel Spreadsheet Is Not Enough

Ever become exasperated with your Excel spreadsheet to an extent where it came haunting you in your dreams? We can already imagine the answer…

Certainly everyone who has been working with Excel for some time can relate. As a resource planner, WFM specialist and contact centre professional, you might imagine one of the following situations you’ve been confronted with in the past:

  1. Getting tired of wrapping your head around an error in a formula
  2. Killing time on a coffee break while your spreadsheet is taking forever to load
  3. Getting bored of the usual monkey work when copy-pasting data due to missing integrations is stealing your precious time you could have invested in other tasks
  4. Feeling like you want to throw your PC out the window when Macros and Solver are driving you nuts by making your life harder instead of simplifying it

The majority of planners who have worked with Excel in contact centre resource planning before have likely experienced these frustrations while also stumbling over certain limitations that naturally come with a spreadsheet. But there’s a way out and we’ll show you how in this last and must-see webinar.
