This case study of Waitsfield and Champlain Valley Telecom is based on a January 2018 survey of Global Software, Inc. customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. "Using Spreadsheet Server, I’ve been able to automate numerous federal reporting into a 5 minute process instead of almost 8 hours. We also have reports automatically send at the beginning of each month, making the information more timely for others to receive it. These reports can be sent as a Spreadsheet Server document, a PDF, or an Excel document with no Spreadsheet Server formulas. Simple reports, such as Trial Balances, set up a certain way can be run in minutes. Financial statements look professional instead of a canned report from JDE."
