Solution 2: Validation
Infotron Spreadsheet Validation
Doubt the quality of your spreadsheets? Need a check from Excel experts to guarantee the quality of your spreadsheet? Look no further. We can quickly check and validate your spreadsheets.

PerfectXL detects things like fixed numbers in formulas, unintentional double counts, incorrectly specified ranges, formulas that are too complex and a lot more. We have validated spreadsheets for the following organisations and many others with great results:
