If someone uses Apple products exclusively, Apple Numbers is a no-brainer. Because of the ability to hand off documents across Apple devices, it makes it easy to work on multiple devices. If someone is already familiar with Excel, there is hardly no learning curve with Apple Numbers. If someone is working on a PC and Android devices, Apple Numbers is not appropriate. The software will not sync as well and in this scenario, someone should stick with the Microsoft suite package.

This is well suited to someone (or a team) who are technically minded and have a dataset that they need to be able to use in many ways. It's less appropriate for a team who isn't technically minded and/or don't have the data they need to manipulate. It would be useful for things that you could use a database or spreadsheet for such as CRM, Advertising database, Business tracking, Health tracking etc.

If you're an Apple user, Apple Numbers is for you. If you primarily operate on PC and Android, you will find more compatibility with Excel. Both platforms perform similar functions -- you can create charts, graphs, and figures. Excel was the pioneer spreadsheet software but Apple presents a simpler, more modern, spreadsheet.

Read full review Return on Investment It helps us to organise our data sheets. It helps us to make our client presentations with its graphical representation of data It helps us in our financial calculations. Read full review It's saved a lot of time in both creating an advertising database and managing it week to week effectively. I had previously created in others that haven't worked, and this does, saving me a good 1 hour weekly, and 5 hours or more each time I had problems with the last ones Being able to stay on track with this has meant I'm following up at the right time (advertisers) and keeping a professional manner and not losing business due to missed communication Saving me $ from buying a program like Access (or Airtable monthly) and then the learning curve that that has. This has a much easier learning curve to say the least. Read full review ScreenShots
