I guess some people will say why do you want to re-invent the wheel. There already thousand of calculators on the Internet. They would say “you can just use a spread sheet. I would say use my newmath tool for 10 minutes and you will know why. math tool
Well here’s why.
I have observed people and myself using a calculator to add invoices ,receipts and do estimations.
A typical scenario that happens at the front desk in my condo when the girl goes to make out the monthly bill for electricity, water and maintenance fee is the girl first of all writes down on a piece of paper the cost for the individual items. Then she goes to the calculator and adds these numbers and writes the total on the bill. I have observed having to start over on the adding machine several times because she is being interrupted by a owner asking her questions and forgets what she had entered on the calculator. Now she gives the hand written bill to a person who enters them on them into the database on the condos computer and all along allowing many steps for error. I have found error in her bill’s in three different occasions.<br>
First of all let me say that if you are working for a large company and you have a person that is specifically using the spread sheet spread sheets are a wonderful invention but if you are a smaller business you cannot afford to hire a person to take care of the spread sheet. Are condo has 6 people working in the office and non of them know how to use the spread sheet because of the learning curve. I my self have been to school to use the spread sheet and when it comes to using it because I don’t use it that often and the newer versions of the software change how things are done I resort to the calculator and paper.
My spread sheet calculator has these advantages in a smaller operation if you start a bill and get interrupted and come back to the computer what you have done is still there you don’t have to start over. There is no reason for the another person to enter it into the database because on the professional version it is automatically entered when the customers bill is printed out. By being able to see what you have done reduces the chance of error.
It is a fantastic program for doing estimations of budgets and time and materials because it allows you to change things and allows you to see the results total and weight the benefits of using different values quickly and easily and send these results to your client by e-mail.
