The excel debate carries on…

Written by Helen Spencer

So many conversations about excel and the pros and cons on discussion forums. As an ex-buyer I am not one to knock it as it served a purpose. But since discovering systems at MCL that are data and information based, I am now convinced that a software system designed for retailers is the way to go. Reporting and information sharing is restricted in excel and with the fast turnaround of products nowadays correct and accurate information gathering is vital. Supplier Collaborator has been designed following work we have carried out at a major retailer and we have first hand experience of the intricate demands of a busy buying office and their relationships with their suppliers.
