If you're a small to medium sized business (SME), Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets are the go-to tools for tracking sales performance. Whether it’s Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets, most businesses use spreadsheet tools. These spreadsheet applications are ubiquitous, offering a familiar way to manage data. However, when it comes to data visualization and creating effective sales dashboards, they fall short.
Excel: Not the Ideal Dashboard Tool
While Excel boasts various data visualization features, it was never designed as a dashboard tool. Excel-based sales dashboards often suffer from visual clutter, making it challenging for users to quickly discern essential information. They can be cumbersome to edit, and free dashboard templates found online seldom provide practical solutions. Customizing these templates to fit your specific needs can be a headache.
Business Intelligence Tools: Powerful but Complex
For those with ample time and resources, Business Intelligence (BI) tools offer a more robust solution for creating live dashboards. However, these tools come with steep learning curves, with Microsoft Power BI, for instance, requiring 4-6 weeks of learning. Moreover, BI tools can become prohibitively expensive, especially for SMEs. They are often designed for larger organizations dealing with extensive data.
