Businesses employ all kinds of tactics to manage information; but one thing that seems never to change is the use of spreadsheets to keep track of it all. This is especially true in Human Resource fields, where reps must keep track of employee data, procedures and policies, events, and more. Spreadsheets still persist as the best organizational tool around.
But what if you need to interact with the data in your spreadsheets while away from the office? Share and collaborate over job candidate information with your colleagues? Plan an office event while on a business trip? Sure, you could use a mobile spreadsheet app. But spreadsheet apps aren't ideal for interacting with data, organizing it, charting it, or allowing you to collaborate on it.
