XLDB Solutions releases the Skills Matrix tool developed in an Excel spreadsheet environment for tenders and bids.
Why buy this tool
A skills matrix is a method that allows someone to input, apportion and track individual skills for employees. It sounds simple, just put it into a database against each employee. However, in reality, a skills matrix is complex, because of the mapping that is required to cross-reference the same skills against several employees.
That is where our Skills Matrix tool comes in. You can define all aspects of your employees such as job titles and hierarchy, with skills types, working hours and skilling categories and then develop the matrix using either a traditional skills matrix or the RACI (Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, Informed) system. With this tool, you will completely control the skills matrix of your entire organisation and see how you can wow your supervisors as they try to figure out how you have accomplished this in a spreadsheet.
Why is this in Excel?
Our DNA is in developing solutions through Microsoft Excel. You see to most people Excel is simply a spreadsheet, used mainly for doing financial calculations. However, in reality, Excel is much more....... Excel is a fully-fledged RAD (Rapid Application Developer), yes application. It means on the right-hand Excel can be used to create complex, dynamic applications.
We make solutions in Excel because at the end of the day, over 1 billion people already have Excel installed on their devices, and also it's just about the most flexible application out there. This means when you buy our solutions, you not only get to use them, but you can customise them to pieces because we also give you the coding and logic base. You can eventually learn, adapt, and create your own solutions.
Not to mention all our solutions are priced well below any bespoke applications, but that does not mean you lose functionality, in most cases you gain.
In many cases many of our tools are unique and there are no alternative bespoke applications, let alone at that price. Includes all databases and code, no licence locking.
