PSA Software vs Spreadsheets

Best project management software (2022)

Have a look at the different things that could go wrong with spreadsheets:

Loss of Data:

You can easily lose your data if you don't back it up. The loss of data could be permanent, as well as accidental. If your company's spreadsheets are backed up, then the loss of data will be minimized.

Collaboration Restrictions:

If you're using an email-based spreadsheet, then it's difficult to share the same spreadsheet with multiple users. The same goes for cloud-based spreadsheets. A team may get frustrated and leave the shared spreadsheet, thereby losing all their data.

Security Risks:

Data can be accessed without permission, accidentally or on purpose. Password protection doesn't always ensure that users can't access the spreadsheet from anywhere.

Audit Trail:

Not having a clear way to record who edited the document and why is a huge security issue. It's easy to make mistakes in a spreadsheet and accidentally delete or change data. Unless there is a way to record the changes in real-time, it's impossible to tell who made what edit.

Spreadsheets are usually shared around your business via email, cloud or hard drive, this leaves your business and clients' data at risk of security breaches. Even password-protected spreadsheets can be compromised with the right hacking software. Most spreadsheets have no built-in audit trail, so there is no way to record who made the changes or why.
