Winter is coming. If you don't watch Game of Thrones, then this probably doesn't make sense to you.
Said another way, if you are using spreadsheets for your school district bond planning, capital planning, etc, it is just a matter of time before you experience losing a spreadsheet or find a significant calculation error.
It is inevitable. We have heard the stories so many times that it makes us crazy to know that so many are still using them for this work.
Don't get me wrong. Spreadsheets are a great tool when used appropriately. I use one to keep track of expenses, and it's a good tool for that.
But spreadsheets are not a database. If you're not sure what this means, trust me, it's true.
BondPlanner uses Microsoft's SQL Server, running on Amazon Web Services. Even if you don't know what this stuff is, these are names that you know.
We provide many benefits that spreadsheets just can't deliver. Let me show you a page from our presentation that highlights several of these:
Question: Have you ever thought about the impact of losing a spreadsheet or a spreadsheet error making it to a bond package?
- How would that affect your school district?
- How would that affect YOU?
You owe it to your district AND yourself to learn more.
So what are you waiting for? Remember, winter is coming.
