VendorRisk vs Microsoft Excel

Still wrestling with spreadsheets?

Spreadsheets are great for a lot of things....

... but vendor management isn't one of them.

Data Visibility

VendorRisk provides a centralized platform for storing and managing all vendor information, making it easy to access and analyze data from multiple sources.

Excel spreadsheets can only store and display a limited amount of information, making it difficult to get a "big picture" view of all vendor relationships. This can lead to missed opportunities, inefficiencies, and increased risks.

Data Integrity

VendorRisk includes built-in data validation and error checking to ensure data integrity.

Excel spreadsheets are prone to errors, such as data entry mistakes, formula errors, and inconsistencies. This can lead to inaccurate or unreliable data, which can have serious consequences in vendor management.


VendorRisk allows multiple team members to access and update vendor information in real-time, improving communication and collaboration.

Excel spreadsheets are typically saved on a local drive or shared via email, making it difficult for multiple team members to access and update the same document simultaneously. This can lead to delays, confusion, and duplication of efforts.


VendorRisk includes advanced reporting and analytics capabilities, making it easy to generate meaningful insights and track vendor performance.

Excel spreadsheets do not have built-in reporting capabilities, making it difficult to generate meaningful insights from the data. This can impede decision-making and hinder vendor performance monitoring.


VendorRisk includes built-in security features, such as encryption and user access controls, to protect sensitive vendor information.

Excel spreadsheets are vulnerable to hacking and data breaches, making them an insecure option for storing sensitive vendor information.
