Traditional spreadsheets can be challenging to keep updated. Different people working on the same spreadsheet can lead to versioning issues where it’s problematic to keep track of the most current file. Collaboration within a spreadsheet is also restricted. Comments can be hidden or mistakenly overlooked due to the very layout of the spreadsheet. Working within multiple spreadsheets can lead to trouble when reconciling data. One version may have been edited with the up-to-date information, while a team member works parallel on a different file at the same time, making updates to a different item. It can be challenging reconciling the two versions. Quality management software makes for an effective alternative to the long and often burdensome spreadsheet.
