Our financial modelling team took part to workshops with modelers from all around the world (37 countries represented) to share best practices and build modeling standards. They also joined the Excel development team to get updated on Excel newest features.

UpSlide CEO, Antoine Vettes, was invited to speak at a conference about how FinTech and Innovation will impact future Due Diligence, M&A and Investments operations:

“At UpSlide, innovation comes from a partnership with users and a lean adaptation to their feedback. Microsoft made it a priority: their UserVoice service has been displayed for almost every tools. By doing so, they can now efficiently collect customer comments and improve their tools.”

Mr Vettes was also asked what he was thinking about the future of Excel for the next decade:

“Excel will remain a popular tool, however the way we use it will evolve. It will probably include much more data visualization features thanks to Microsoft investments in Power BI solution.  Regarding the way we present business and financial analyses, new tools will appear, in addition to PowerPoint. UpSlide will adapt and follow users in those changes.”
