Please humour me with a little sum before I begin. You don’t need a calculator, but just estimate how much time each of the people in your team spends using Excel each week. Then ask yourself, what would happen if you could reduce that time by 10%, 30% or even 50% and still get the same amount of work done at the end of the week.
OK, humouring over – let’s get down to the cold hard facts. (You can get your calculator out now if you like.) Let’s suppose that you have 5 people in the team and each one spends an hour a day on Excel. What if we were working on a conservative estimate of 20% of their time being saved by introducing some simple efficiency training? That would be 5 hours per week between the team, and a month and a half’s salary saved/earned across the year.
You don’t know what you don’t know.
Some of our clients have saved as much as 90% of their time using Microsoft platforms and pretty much eradicated others altogether. Whether your people are spending their time inputting numbers, making calculations, analysing data or creating spreadsheets, there are certain to be tips, trick and techniques that can improve their performance and save you time and money. You don’t know what you don’t know!
The fact is that I don’t know what you don’t know either, so I can’t tell you exactly how much time you will save. But I can pretty much guarantee there will be some improvements because there is so much to know.
Once we have completed a thorough TNA (Training Needs Analysis), we will have a clear idea of what you use Excel (or any other Microsoft software) for in your business and the techniques that can help you and your staff get the results faster. Plus, you will have happier staff, who know that you value their time and are willing to invest in improving their skills.
Yes, we 100% GUARANTEE a tangible result!
The very fact that we run 5 different levels of Excel Training should tell you just how much knowledge is available. Of course, not everything is relevant to every job role, and there will be some roles that only need to understand a few bits from each level. That is why the TNA is so critical before we start and why we won’t train anyone without making sure we know we can make a difference.
Please trust me on this one! If we look at what you do and we are not 100% certain we can save your team time and make their jobs easier then we will not waste your time with a training course. That is a guarantee!
The other thing to remember is that programmes like Excel, Word and PowerPoint are updated and improved regularly, new techniques and ideas are being introduced, and our training is always changing. So, even if you were trained in the basics a year ago, there will be more that you can learn now.
