Analytics Edge products make it easy to automate your spreadsheet reports, downloading and analysing data without formulas or programming. With connectors to popular services like Google Ads, Google Analytics and Google Search, you eliminate the tedious downloads or copy-paste operations to get your data. With over 30 wizard-based analytics functions, you eliminate the ‘spreadsheet hell’ of using complicated formulas to produce insightful reports.
For over 30 years, people have turned to spreadsheets to collect and analyse data. They do this because:
- Needs are not fully known; the first report always generates more questions
- Requirements are fluid; subject to seasonal and business changes
- You can do it yourself; no waiting for someone else to update your report
- Minimal effort and expense; just get it done
Analytics Edge products are designed for this environment: quick to results, easy to change, simple to use.
From the beginning, spreadsheets have relied on formulas for calculations, but automation relied on programming: Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macros. Since then, other computer languages (e.g. Python, App Scripts) have been used to accomplish the same thing, but they still require programming skills — that is so 1980’s.
Time-savers like the Excel PivotTable™ appeared, but quickly became complicated as features were added. Array formulas and Power Query have also been added, but the concepts are difficult to pick up for casual users.
Analytics Edge products require no programming — queries and functions are wizard-based, and you will be surprised at how simple and fast that makes everything!
