  21. 21. So, how can you fix your spreadsheet problems? What are your options?

  23. 23. It just makes sense to have all your employee data in a single, secure database.
  24. 24. It’s got to be easy to use—the interface should be clean, fast, and fun!
  25. 25. Having custom reporting eliminates hours spent poring over spreadsheets.
