Register Today for Excelapalooza 2018!

Join BizNet Software for Excelapalooza 2018! This year’s conference will feature not only the Excel tips and tricks you’ve come to expect, but also a variety of tracks to assist in your reporting and analytics. Did we mention you can earn up to 19 CPE credits along the way?
 
While you will still learn how to navigate and use Excel better, we’re aiming to teach companies and users the most common KPI and metrics they should consider tracking. We’ll show you how to connect data from a wide range of sources to calculate these numbers and trends, but more importantly illustrate what Excel tools your company should use in each situation.
 
By combining your team’s data to build compelling reports utilizing more powerful tools, we’ll then train your team to present these findings to the business with leadership training. This holistic approach will elevate your team and your business in three fun and educational days in Dallas, TX.
