Expert in Excel

United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 1

Having a background in Mechanical Engineering I find myself constantly wanting to solve problems related to making any business successful. From sales support, production, installation, finance, reporting, etc. Most of my experience is with Microsoft Excel and using that software to its full potential creating complicated worksheets and macros to solve the problem at hand. From using an excel file to generate standard pdf's to creating reports that attach themselves to an email at a click of button. My focus while creating these tools is efficiency and accuracy. By reducing the time to do a task and reducing as many mistakes as possible will only better the company using them. As well as Microsoft Excel, I have a great deal of knowledge related to SAP Business ByDesign, Microsoft, Word, Access, Powerpoint, some experience with javascript,Sharepoint, SolidWorks, and AutoCADD.
