Add life to Excel: Infommersion Xcelsius

Can any hour be longer than the one spent watching your company’s chief financial officer point at a spreadsheet full of grey, unreadable numbers? Infommersion’s program Xcelsius can’t give your CFO charisma, but it can enliven the presentation.

Xcelsius enables you to transform the contents of an Excel spreadsheet into an interactive Macromedia Flash file. Not only does the program translate dry numbers into attractive charts, tables, and maps, but it also lets you use sliders and gauges to alter figures and see immediately how those changes affect your original Excel calculations. You can also export Xcelsius creations into an HTML file, a PowerPoint presentation, or an Outlook e-mail message so that anyone can view them; the resulting files operate just like the Xcelsius files do. First you import an Excel spreadsheet, and then you drag and drop any of 36 graphic elements onto the canvas. You can associate each element with a cell or series of cells. Dedicated bean counters who use Xcelsius will find this bottom line: an investment of some study will yield a healthy return in viewers’ interest.

All up, a clever application makes Excel spreadsheets data more interesting, but is tricky to use at first. – Edward N. Albro

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
