When I first started my own business, I was going through a lot of learning in how to keep it running successfully. I had to realize that I couldn’t do everything on my own and that it was fine to hire someone else to handle tasks. We use Excel to record various sales data and make reports that show the overall progress of the company each month. This data is used to determine our course of action to maximize profits. I hired a company to do Excel VBA programming because the automated tasks that are done through programming makes it easier to get the reports we needed.
There was the option of getting some of our employees do to the automating in Excel, but they would have needed training to learn about VBA programming and how to implement it successfully with our business. Since the outside company that we hired was already skilled in programming various automation for Excel, all we have to do is give them the right data and they can take care of anything much faster than we ever could. Getting in touch with the company has been easy and they’ve been pretty quick about their turn around.
Based on the monthly data that we’ve been receiving, we’re about on par with the sales results from last year, but things could be better. The company is going to have to come up with some new ideas that will increase the sales of our products, and hopefully we’ll be able to get a good lead on sales before the start of the holiday season. During this period is when we experience the largest amount of sales because people are usually shopping for gifts for their friends and family, or trying to get good prices on items for themselves.
