Are you looking for an efficient Microsoft Excel add-in to quickly create elegant spreadsheets with consistent tables, charts, and cell formatting? Then empower® sheets is the perfect solution for you. Our latest product in the empower® suite gives you access to corporate design-compliant templates and designs directly in Excel.
Our goal is to enable all Excel users to work more efficiently and stop wasting time on formatting tasks. In this article we explain the central functions of empower® sheets and how you and your company can benefit from them.
We have investigated what causes trouble and costs a lot of time when working with Excel, and how layout as well as formatting work can be simplified. With empower® sheets, you access a central library of predefined templates and assets that let you create professional Excel documents in no time. Changes to templates are updated company-wide and every Excel document is 100% in line with your corporate design.
Further benefits of empower® sheets
Long-term outlook for more features:
The empower® sheets library provides templates and content to all users. The library allows you to search for templates and other assets directly within Excel. Templates can range from nearly empty workbooks containing only preset designs and layout settings to individual table styles, for example for project schedules. You can save, access, and use corporate design-compliant Excel templates and other elements.
Freely definable folder structure and permission control
Example: You want to format your data as a table to match your corporate design. You select one of the styles available in the library and add it to your workbook. Now you can call the newly added table style right in the workbook and apply it to your data.
The same applies to cell styles, such as cell highlights. You simply select these from the library, add them to your workbook by double-clicking, and then apply them to the cells you want.
You can also quickly add charts in a corporate design-compliant style either by adding a chart to your data or by first selecting the relevant data and then double-clicking the desired style. Double-clicking on one of these styles will add a new chart in the style associated with that data.
The first thing you will notice is the empower® sheets tab in the Excel ribbon. We designed the empower® tab based on a user study in order to surface the most frequently used functions so you do not have to switch laboriously between different PowerPoint tabs. The empower® tab provides access to all empower® functions and to the template library. It also contains certain formatting tools that are preconfigured specifically for your corporate design. This includes, for example, the font and color pickers.
Corporate design compliant productivity tools: Format pickers for fonts, colors, and cell formatting, as well as table and chart templates, ensure that every Excel document conforms 100% to your corporate design.
empower® sheets reduces formatting work when creating Excel documents using design-compliant templates, charts, and tables. Font and color pickers ensure that every Excel report matches your brand.
