Why switch from Excel- to cloud-enabled Blueprinter 5.0?

  • Team Collaboration: Team members automatically synchronize their work… and can drag-and-drop xls, ppt, doc & pdf files to store & share.
  • Project Tracking: A business coordinator can have visibility into all relevant projects… without asking teams to email Excel attachments.
  • Improved Coaching: Blueprinting coaches can be invited to view teams’ projects online… again, without emailing Excel files.
  • Portfolio Analysis: Eventually, businesses will be able to extract key data from all projects for portfolio decisions based on common data.
  • Data-mining: Imagine being able to data-mine qualitative and quantitative data across an entire business or company.
  • Benchmarking: Your company can opt to upload “scrubbed” data and participate in benchmarking to learn cutting-edge best practices.
  • Corporate Memory: Your company will build a huge repository of detailed project data… and can even import old Excel Blueprinter data.
