While the use of spreadsheets is on decline, according to a 2018 report by the Financial Executives Research Foundation (FERF) and Robert Half, there are still 63 percent of companies that acknowledge their continued use of the software for these important tasks.
This drop-in usage signals two things for organizations still relying on spreadsheets – specialized budgeting and planning software is more accessible than ever before, and if your competitors haven’t already switched from spreadsheets, they will be doing so soon.
