Simple and Unified
Amplify and build on work you’ve already done in Excel. Vena’s modern cloud infrastructure and database application form a Complete platform, native to Excel and without restrictions.
Trustworthy Data
Save time and effort with automated integrations and real-time data—stored in Vena’s secure cloud database. And use that data to tell the story behind your numbers with reporting, dashboards and analysis.
Not an “add-on” or afterthought, Excel is at the heart of what we do and central to our core application.

Create and Publish Templates

Use preconfigured templates, create new ones, or use existing models—all within the Excel interface. You get the full functionality of Excel, including multiple worksheets and dynamic rows and columns.

Integration and Security

Integrated workflows map data from Excel templates and reports to our database, then publish it to our controlled environment. Automated rollovers, email notifications, activity tracking, and audit trails ensure that you have complete data security and auditability.

Collaborative Input

Workflows allow for collaboration and an intuitive experience entirely in Excel. Multiple users can contribute using the familiar input experience, adding commentary, listing item details, and file uploads. The Scratch Pad window within Excel allows for rough work and ideas to be saved.

Actionable Insights

Get more from your data, including automatic aggregations and scheduled or ad-hoc reporting from the Vena database. Excel provides charting and formatting capabilities, while Vena works with Excel to allow you to slice and dice, and drill down into your data for advanced analysis.
