While Excel is great at creating complex models out of simple calculations, the end result can be unwieldy and difficult to understand. Slate lets you quickly visualise how the sheet works as a whole.
Mistakes are much more obvious and resolving errors is as simple as following the trail of calculations back to the source.
But Slate is more than just an error checking tool, it shows your entire sheet in its truest, most transparent form giving you a real insight into your work.
We believe a good spreadsheet is a thing of beauty. The graphics are minimal and simple but convey a huge amount of information. Slate makes complex sheets simple to understand.
Slate will show you your sheet in a way that lets you see and understand the issues for yourself. No more annoying and inaccurate error flags.
Complex formulas are broken down graphically into individual operations. Mouse over to see the result at each stage.
Have you ever been given a spreadsheet and have no clue what it does or how it works? Slate is a great tool to understand other people's sheets and for explaining your work to others.
