What can Backbone provide?

Excel template design

Our team creates custom Excel templates tailored to your specific accounting needs. From financial statements and budgeting templates to data entry forms and reconciliation tools, we design Excel templates that optimise your workflow and streamline your accounting processes.

Programming of Excel-based tools

Our experts develop custom Excel-based tools to automate manual tasks, streamline data analysis, and enhance reporting capabilities. From macros and VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) programming to advanced formulas and functions, we leverage Excel's powerful capabilities to create customized tools that boost your accounting efficiency.

Bridge the accounting system gap

When it comes to accounting systems, we understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Off-the-shelf software may not always fully meet the unique requirements of accountants. That's where we come in with our tailored solutions that bridge the gap between accounting systems and accountants. By bridging the gap, it further improves user-friendliness, automate manual tasks, reduce repetitive efforts, and minimise human interference in routine processes. This results in streamlined workflows and improved accuracy of output.

We offer tailored Excel / Google Sheets training programs to improve your team's spreadsheet skills. From basic Excel skills to advanced data analysis techniques, our training programs are designed to meet the specific needs of your accounting team, enabling them to fully leverage spreadsheets' capabilities in their day-to-day tasks.
