EMAGENIT works on custom Excel software projects of all size, difficulty and duration for any customer. Our Excel app designs cover the most basic of tasks up to projects that can take a few months or years to develop. We can develop simple Excel tools that automate repetitive tasks to the most advanced modeling, data processing and dashboard style projects that incorporate databases, the web and multiple computer languages. We have been creating custom Excel software apps since 1998 for companies and organizations like NASA, BMW, Caterpillar, Spectrum, The US Navy and Los Alamos. Our Excel app design covers topics in business, engineering and science. If you can dream it up, we will build it for you.
In addition to Excel and VBA, we also use other Office products like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Access and Outlook in our Excel app tools. We can also integrate other computer languages, the web and databases into our Excel software designs to help get the job done. By using Excel and VBA in combination with other languages and products, app tools can be rapidly developed in an agile development environment that rival anything on the market for a fraction of the cost; if you know how to build them. We do.
All of our Excel VBA apps are built by EMAGENIT personnel in the USA. We do not farm out our coding to any other company or individuals. In other words, your valuable information stays with only one source, us, and that means your proprietary information always remains secure and under a NDA. And since we are USA based, our work hours basically coincide with yours which means you do not have to call us at 11:00 PM at night.
Our Excel software tour demonstrates our different software categories below in a visual manner. After the software tour, you can read below and see the specifics about an Excel software design category or just contact us directly about the specifics of your project and learn about how we can help. Please note, the categories listed below are only the most popular Excel tasks we build for customers. In general, if you want to build it in Excel, we will find a way to do it.
Microsoft Excel and VBA have the capability to process and analyze data from all different types of data sources and data configurations. Using VBA along with the Excel worksheet, high powered data processing systems can be developed in minimum time and with minimum cost. The type of data tools we can build include:
One of the biggest problems facing business today is that their data is spread out over multiple data sources that do not talk to each other. The solution is not to build another data source and try to import everything into which by the way never works out as billed. The better way is to integrate what you have and get it talking to each other. Excel VBA along with the worksheet again can be utilized to read and integrate data from different data sources that can then be used for various exports, reports and dashboards. The data fusion Excel software we can build includes:
The condensed definition of data mining is defined as the process of detecting patterns in data. While this is a very broad field with many areas, Excel VBA and the worksheet shine at detecting patterns in data and then processing the data based on those patterns. It is the worksheet structure itself and its "built-in" tools that really makes it happen. In addition to data mining, Excel VBA can also be used to correct bad data and format report data in complex data configurations. The data tools we can build in this area includes:
Microsoft Excel coupled with VBA is an incredible report environment with the capabilities to make all different types of report formats. Using VBA along with charts, the worksheet, formulas, PivotTables, pictures and drawing shapes, your imagination is pretty much the limit of what report type can be generated. VBA can also be used to transfer data to a variety of other programs including Word, PowerPoint, Outlook... basically anything that VBA can command. The report types we can build for your data include:
Another area that Excel and VBA really shines at is dashboards and in general visual interfaces. The difference between EMAGENIT and other companies in this area is we make them look cutting edge and extremely functional. What we can build for you to visualize your data includes:
Microsoft Excel with VBA can be used to create cost effective program management tools that can be rapidly developed in minimal time and are scalable. The tools can use either standard workbooks to house data or pull their data directly from databases. What we can build in this area includes:
What makes a system like this so flexible and easy to upgrade is when the database is taken out of the picture and replacing it with standardized workbooks housed on SharePoint. With the database out of the way, upgrade efforts focus on the visual displays and reports, not upgrading the databases, the queries,.... Adding project information becomes as simple as adding an extra row of data in a specified place in a workbook. We know, we have built systems like these that integrate hundreds of team workbooks and they consistently beat out the larger programs because of their flexibility and ease of use. That said, when extra capabilities are needed, databases integrate just fine with these tools.
Microsoft Excel VBA and VB.NET posses an incredible array of tools to query and control databases with. The idea is to use Excel as a pre / post database data processor. The idea is to also use Excel as a database visualization tool. We also use VB.NET at this point due to its extraordinary control of databases. Excel VBA can run VB.NET making it seamless to the user. What we can build in this area includes:
Microsoft Excel and with VBA can be used to create interactive time sheet and scheduler type programs. The Excel worksheet takes center stage here again using its unique abilities for data storage and interfaces. What we can build includes:
All of the above can either interact with worksheet based data or data from a database.
Microsoft Excel, VBA and VB.NET can be used to read and control web pages and web based databases. VB.NET is especially valuable here with its built-in capabilities and again VBA can communicate with it seamlessly. What we can build in Excel VBA includes:
Using Excel VBA, automated programs can be developed that sweep, read and if necessary correct workbook elements, settings and many types of errors. These style programs can rip through thousands of workbooks housed in different folders monitoring them and keeping them up to specifications. If corrected, these changes might include correcting and reshaping tables, fixing and renaming names, redefining ranges, upgrading formulas, fixing queries, upgrading PivotTables...etc. When the programs are done, they can log their change results in worksheets complete with hyperlinks so you can jump to where the problem was located to see what was done. EMAGENIT has designed many of these programs to bring their clients workbooks up to a certain specification.
EMAGENIT considers modeling as anything that uses formulas on the worksheet to initiate its primary calculation sequence. There are so many model types, we can not possibly list them all here. What we will do instead is tell you what we generally use to build an Excel model.
Excel components that you already use. When we develop Excel worksheet based models, we use general formulas, worksheet functions, array formulas, names, Excel tables, Power Query, PivotTables, shapes, charts, Conditional Formatting, Data Validation and ActiveX controls. We use formulas, array formulas and names because they calculate faster than trying to use Excel VBA for all model calculations. Using Power Query and PivotTables allows us to integrate multiple data sources in a model, refresh them and analyze their data. Using these basic features when possible also allows individuals with general Excel skills to manage a model's elements without our help.
Excel VBA to enhance model functionality. While models that use formulas and Excel's built-in capabilities are very powerful, a model's functionality can be boosted many times over by integrating Excel VBA with it. Think of VBA in this instance as a wrapper that manages a model's functionality. EMAGENIT uses Excel VBA to control things in a model like formula creation and fills, model parameter uploads and downloads, cell and range name management, formatting, range clearing, adding and deleting data from tables, data refresh and any type of model reporting. Also when numerical analysis comes into play, we use Excel VBA to create custom worksheet functions that perform those tasks. We also use custom worksheet functions to tie models into other computer languages for greater speed and other programs for "off the shelf" capabilities.
Solver for optimization purposes. We can also tie Excel models into various worksheet problem optimization packages like Crystal Ball and Solver. If you have a model and are trying to find a correct solution, you should be coupling it with an optimization program.
* A note here, user defined worksheet functions or UDF's are constructed in VBA and are executed from the worksheet like a normal worksheet function, think SUM function. They can execute 1000's of lines of computer code from a single cell and work with the like's of Solver or Crystal ball.
