Spreadsheet Validation

Ensure error-free compliant spreadsheets

While the convenience of spreadsheets is undeniable, it’s vital to remember they’re not infallible tools. Just as we rigorously test and analyze other critical components of our operations, spreadsheet validation must become an integral part of our data management strategy.  By embracing validation techniques, we transform them from casual calculators into trusted sources of truth, safeguarding our decisions, protecting our businesses, and ultimately, building a foundation of data integrity.

A spreadsheet’s functional requirements are prepared, considering both user requirements and functional specifications.

Develop the spreadsheet, ensuring all parameters are considered for the outcome desired.

Set up and execute the protocol to test the design of the spreadsheet against the requirements.

Set up and execute the protocol to test the spreadsheet performance against the user needs.
