If you’re still using out-dated offline spreadsheets for your Human Resource practices like making general recruitment lists, secure sharing of employee files and confidential hiring lists, then I assume your life is turning into a living hell. Even though I, Daniel Allen have been working for a considerable time in HR, it was only of late that I decided to move from spreadsheets to specialized management tools like CollateBox.
Spreadsheets may have been the standard way to manage data since the 1980’s , but today we know that, up to a certain point, spreadsheets are decent only to meet basic data listing needs, and do not have an immediate practical value that can be applied for human resources practices like employee data backup, hiring lists, recruitment lists, workforce management etc.
According to Bamboo HR’s recent survey 73% of the Healthcare industry ,60% of the Hospitality industry, and 86% of the Technology industry have abandoned spreadsheets and currently use some type of human resource or specialized software like CollateBox. These very statistics should make you want to start evaluating when you will make the transition from spreadsheets to tools like CollateBox where you can share customizable spreadsheet templates with unlimited users.
It is also a mobile first tool which means you are not restricted to work only from your desktop. No matter where you are, you can update the spreadsheet even if you are not connected to the internet. It automatically syncs when you enter a Wi-Fi zone. I encourage everyone to get started free and try out CollateBox as an effective solution to your spreadsheet woes. The how to videos and CollateBox tutorials also helped me a lot during my initial days.
