For that important spreadsheet - ClusterSeven

Spreadsheet risk check and comparison

If your organization relies on just a handful of critical spreadsheets, you may not have considered using a spreadsheet risk check and comparison tool.

Perhaps you’re finding, however, that manual reviews are a drain on resources, or don’t always deliver the confidence your business needs in its spreadsheet data for financial reporting and other purposes.

ClusterSeven can help, with an easy-to-use, easily accessible and non-invasive solution that lets you:

  • Assess and classify the potential risks of an individual spreadsheet
  • Compare spreadsheet versions
  • Discover links within a spreadsheet to other data sources
  • Maintain an inventory of critical spreadsheets

See our example use cases

  • Assess and classify risks

    Assess and classify the regulatory, financial, operational and other risks of an individual spreadsheet.

    ClusterSeven will help you understand the complexity of a spreadsheet and identify where there is potential for error, equipping you to:

    • Remediate errors β€” for example, by amending spreadsheet design
    • Improve governance β€” for example, by implementing stronger policies or controls
  • Compare spreadsheet versions

    Automatically compare multiple versions of a spreadsheet to quickly identify who did what to it, when.

    With ClusterSeven you can carry out repeated comparisons to help you:

    • Reduce the risk of errors
    • Increase your confidence in the accuracy of spreadsheet data
    • Improve control over spreadsheet-dependent processes
  • Maintain a spreadsheet inventory

    Create a secure inventory of your critical spreadsheets with an automatic audit trail.

    However you store your spreadsheets at the moment, it’s unlikely you have all the features you need to maintain a proper inventory.

    Uploading your spreadsheets to ClusterSeven lets you:

    • Store them securely and control who can access them
    • Define spreadsheet attributes for ClusterSeven to track
    • See all the changes that take place to those spreadsheet attributes over time
