A. Scaling Excel with ActiveTab

Excel enables your teams to create advanced models to run multiple aspects of the business. However Excel is bad at scaling when you need to collect multiple inputs and consolidate results afterwards. The ActiveTab proposition is to let your team keep Excel to model as they see fit and use ActiveTab to distribute your spreadsheets and consolidate. This workshop will present several use cases and detail how to leverage ActiveTab to help you make the best of Excel's flexibility.
