Project Accounting v Excel

Which one is better a Project Accounting System or Excel?


We are big fans of Project Accounting and having proper systems in place for Project Managers to manage everything project-related, but the age-old debate of whether Excel is in fact a better tool continues. Some organisations just LOVE Excel, not just for Project Accounting either, but for everything!

Sometimes we find it hard to win a battle when there are so many sophisticated "home-grown" Excel systems loaded with macros, pivot tables and formulae. Still though, I think it's worth considering the point that no matter what you're doing or how you're doing it, there is "always a better way".

Not necessarily our way, often it's the case of "stick with the one you know", so I suppose the purpose of this blog post and e-book is to give "die-hard" Excel fans a slightly different perspective on things. 

We love a good debate. This e-book is for Project Managers out there who for whatever reason are bound by Excel. Please do share your comments with us.
