Rethinking data. One number at a time.
Data is clear and well defined in databases and reference documents. But when it comes down to work in spreadsheets, system software or devices, it's just a string of digits, and the connection to its source and what it means fades away.
But what if every number carried its own description locked inside -- the way text carries its font and point-size? This would change everything - traceability, pedigree and provenance would be a given. Spreadsheet data would be the most, not the least trusted data in the enterprise. New systems and processes would be incredibly easy to implement- with better security and data governance than traditional approaches. Truenumbers makes this a reality.
For business end-users
Truenumbers works right out of the box in finance, engineering or manufacturing where spreadsheets are still an important way to keep business agile. Truenumbers' MS-Office add-in gives users control of changing asumptions and makes MS-Office more traceable and auditable than anything else in the enterprise.
"Any IT executive whose company uses spreadsheets prolifically should be looking at Truenumbers -- any industry — including education, financial services, government, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, retail, and so on — can benefit from it."
