Working in excel to run an entire business process is very dangerous, Excel isn't designed to run a process it's a spreadsheet system designed to crunch numbers and create formulas to assist in basic tasks. If you are using Excel you really need to speak to our team about have some bespoke software created to take over the job fo the Excel spreadsheet.
Unlike actual bespoke software, It has very little to ensure data integrity, backup, and disaster recovery. It's highly prone to misentered data and over the years we have seen countless companies contact us because they've lost data.
