VBA Applications

VBA Applications – Fully Bespoke Applications for Less

Our bespoke VBA applications and tools have saved businesses around the world, time money and effort (and probably a few grey hairs). Tools developed in VBA are as powerful and as bespoke as tools developed on any other platform. However, it is often a lot cheaper due to quicker development times.

VBA Development

Why Develop VBA Applications?

It is not unusual for people to underestimate the power of VBA development, after all, it’s just a language to write macros in, isn’t it? At Excel-Expert we have developed VBA applications that look after hundreds of millions of dollars in hedge funds, process millions of leasing prices and model marketing strategies across the UKs biggest supermarkets.

Far more than a macro that automates some mouse clicks!

Here are just some of the reasons why these companies chose to utilise the power of VBA.

Rapid Prototyping

By utilising the power of VBA and Microsoft Office, we can rapidly prototype software tools and business processes in Office. If there is an element of the prototype that doesn’t work or you don’t like, it can quickly be replaced, allowing you to carry out extensive “what-if” analysis of the tool.

Fast Development

By developing inside the Microsoft Office environment we can take advantage of the powerful tools and features already built into Office to speed up development times. Projects developed in VBA can be developed in a fraction of the time needed to develop in languages like Visual Basic, Python, or C++.

Flexible Solutions

VBA Can be used to access the features of Excel, Word, Access, Outlook, PowerPoint, and several other Microsoft applications. As a result, VBA programming can build flexible solutions by combining all their bests features. VBA Can also access some external applications, increasing its flexibility further.

Familiar Interfaces

Why reinvent the wheel? The Office range of products (Word, Excel, Outlook, Access etc) have interfaces we are already familiar with. We utilise and build upon these interfaces to build tools that are easy to navigate and intuitive to use – no matter what the end-users experience level is.

Data Compatibility

Microsoft Office has been around for over 2 decades, and in that time, it has been updated to work with every data type imaginable. It can now import a massive range of data types and connect to data sources of all kinds. All of which can be taken advantage of with VBA development.

Open-Ended

Unlike tools developed in languages like Visual Basic or C++, tools developed in VBA are not locked up in a “black box” that you can’t access or update. All of your development is accessible and updatable by anyone with the right skills. You will never be tied to one developer!

VBA Applications We Have Built For Clients

We have had the privilege of working on a wide range of projects. They have ranged from simple quoting tools to tools responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of transactions a year.

The tools we have developed have helped companies save time, money, and lots of effort. We achieved this by combining our programming skills with our knowledge of business systems and processes.

Hedge Fund Management Tool

A tool that collated the purchasing requirements across over 150 manufacturing facilities, and hedged all of the risks involved. The tool raised the required legal paperwork and monitored the hedging over the following years.

Centralised Purchasing Tool

Amalgamated purchase requirements of outlets across Europe and combined them with factors such as marketing drives and weather forecasts. This allowed our client to make more efficient and centralised purchasing decisions.

Lease Pricing Comparison Engine

Our tool gathered leasing information from dozens of leasers, covering hundreds of thousands of price combinations. It then allowed our client to identify and market the most cost effective deals to their customers.

National Stock Management System

Our stock control tool allowed our client to monitor stock levels on their team of fitter’s vans. When their fitters returned to the depot replenishment stock would be ready and waiting for them. This maximised their fitting time.

Debt Management CRM Tool

This tool helped our client manage and automate the recovery over £100m in debt. At key stages chase up documents were created or chase up calls were scheduled. This allowed their small team to deal with twice as many debtors as before.

Plus Much, Much More

We couldn’t possibly list all of our past projects here, especially not in any detail. If you would like to hear more about our past projects or projects more specific to your industry, please get in touch.
