The Excel Calculator:

Excel calculators are used in almost every industry but involve complex formulae which are neither easy to apply nor simple to comprehend. Converting the Excel calculator into a mobile app not only renders ease but also promotes optimum usage by everyone (including non-technical users and laymen).

For a thorough understanding, we can consider a case of few industries where diverse Excel spreadsheet calculators are used extensively.

Health & Fitness Industry

Health & Fitness Industry has many uses of Excel spreadsheet to consider. Some of these include the following:

  • BMI Calculators
  • Calorie Consumption or Carbohydrate Calculators
  • LDL / HDL Cholesterol Calculators
  • Blood Pressure Calculators
  • Food and Diet, Recipe Ingredient and Nutritional Value Calculators; and
  • Other Workout, Sports, and Health & Fitness Calculators

Companies offering health products, Trainers providing fitness coaching under their personal brand, and other entities in this arena can get great value for their businesses by such Excel calculators, converted into health and fitness apps, which fitness enthusiasts care for.

Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI) Industry

Now, everyone from customer to consultant in BFSI industry needs to perform some sort of calculation for better financial planning or projection. And Depending on the need, they will need different calculators like:

  • Auto Loan, Equated Monthly Installment (EMI), Home Equity, Debt Reduction, Personal Finance and other Banking Calculators;
  • Mortality, Life Expectancy, and other Insurance Calculators;
  • Cumulative Return on Investment (ROI) and Profit & Loss Calculators;
  • Home Budget Calculators;
  • Compound Interest Installment and Credit Card Pay Off Calculators;
  • Cost, Deal, Price Calculators;
  • Income Tax, Federal Tax, and other Tax Calculators (e.g. Sales Tax Calculator);
  • Bond Value and Yield Calculators;
  • Debt to Income Ratio and other Financial Calculators

However, users (people as well as professionals) have no handy tool to perform such calculations, i.e. there is always a need for Excel spreadsheet which isn’t easily available to everyone everywhere, and even if there is one, it requires applying compound formula manually. Mobile app converted from a financial spreadsheet calculator extends the usage of both businesses as well as personal users. Also, not only will it save a great deal of time and manual effort, but it will equip users to perform calculations on the go.

Energy Industry

A number of Excel calculators are used across this industry, some of which include:

  • Thermostat Calculators;
  • Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Calculator;
  • Electric, Heat, Cooling Load Calculators;
  • Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) Calculators; and
  • Temperature, Fuel, Furnace and Other Energy Savings, Consumption and Conversion Calculations.

Having a mobile app converted from an Excel calc. can make it usable for a big mass of users comprised of homeowners as well as other entities in the energy industry. Not only that, it then becomes a matter of minutes to derive a value from the input without applying or understanding the technical formulae.
