Excel-to-Web Spreadsheet Sharing

BadBlue Enterprise Edition is the only out-of-the-box way to share Excel workbooks over the web. Sure, a lot of other products claim to be able to turn a workbook into a web application, but when you dig deeper you find out some disturbing issues with their solutions. Here are the questions you should ask of any vendor who says their product will share Excel files over the web:

  • Can multiple users edit the same workbook at the same time, using only browsers?
  • Does it require a conversion step, from Excel to some other format?
  • Does it have built-in security down to the cell level?
  • Does it write all changes from the web back to the original Excel files in real-time?
  • How long does it take to set up? Is it easy to use?
  • Is it affordable?

  • The answers from the other vendors might surprise you. Let's investigate each one of these questions and see how BadBlue Enterprise Edition stacks up. Best of all, you can try all of the Excel web sharing features by downloading free BadBlue Personal Edition.

    Can users edit the same workbook at the same time, using only their browsers?
    Yes! BadBlue lets users view and edit workbook files with no client software required. Support for:

  • charts
  • re-calculation of all formulas
  • conflict resolution
  • cell-by-cell security

  • and many other features are all integrated into BadBlue.

    Best of all, the workbooks you decide to share on the server remain up-to-date at all times.

    Does it require a conversion step, from Excel to some other format?
    Most other products require you to convert your Excel file to another format. Not only does a conversion step means complicated setup and the fact that some valuable information in your spreadsheet may be lost... it also means that you can't get the reporting and analysis functionality you need from Excel without converting their data back to Excel format!

    Conversely, BadBlue uses the native Excel workbook files with no conversions necessary.

    Does it have built-in security down to the cell level?
    BadBlue provides extremely powerful, yet easy, security controls down to the individual cell level. You can control who can view and edit which cells.

    And that kind of control is completely optional. If you don't require it, you don't need to do anything.

    Does it write all changes from the web back to the original Excel files in real-time?
    Unlike other products, BadBlue writes all changes from the web back to the original workbook files in real-time.

    It also reads the latest data from the original files for display. That means all of your users are looking at the same data... at the same time, whether they are on your local network or out on the Internet.

    How long does it take to set up? Is it easy to use?
    BadBlue is a complete, turnkey solution to sharing Excel files over the web. Don't have a web server or know how to configure one? Don't worry, BadBlue includes a highly secure server that is plain and simple to configure.

    BadBlue also includes free illustrated tutorials to step you through the process... through every mouse-click and key-press. We have users who tell us they were able to set it up in minutes flat. Nothing is easier, and that's guaranteed.


    Is it affordable?
    Yes! BadBlue with Excel-web sharing starts at $59 and discounts are available for students, non-profits and religious organizations.
