The intricate Excel worksheet that was utilized to help with the staff cost allocation process grew so difficult to use and understand that only a small number of people had complete control over its pivot tables, macros, and calculations.

The method was laborious, time-consuming, prone to mistakes, and inaccurate in its existing state. Manual Processes of cost allocation to the staff were difficult. Teams typically manually copy and paste data into another system, such as Excel, to extract pertinent information from emails. Our client was no different in this regard. The information on each new cost for each staff was manually entered into a spreadsheet to determine the cost allocation capacity and approvals.


The TechnomaX team prepared an assessment of the entire procedure, made recommendations, and put through a power app into place. Reminders are now sent, data is checked for accuracy, and then it is linked and fed into the new system. The data is updated and closed quarterly.
