What are the benefits of creating apps from Google Sheets?

Google Sheets is a resourceful application and is used by businesses around the world. It provides an excellent user experience and is easy to use. However, there is definite merit in creating apps from Google Sheets for everyone involved whether it is the company, the employees, or even the clients. Here are the benefits of creating apps from Google Sheets:

  • App UI is more efficient
  • The user interface in mobile apps is more efficient. This means any kind of data entry and display becomes a lot easier and quicker. Touch displays and the optimization of mobile apps makes them very convenient on the go.

  • Improved filtering
  • Data that is simply dumped on a spreadsheet is difficult to handle and make sense of. When you convert the sheet into an app, all this data can be tailored or filtered according to different users and audience types.

  • Layered access
  • Using a mobile app, you can provide layered access to your employees or any other stakeholders. This way you can decide and control who can view or edit any sensitive data or confidential reports.

  • Consistent point of entry
  • When you convert your Google Sheets into an app, you streamline access to the sheets by providing a consistent point of entry into your sheets. You can access your sheets from anywhere around the world with a tap of your finger.

  • Apps are more mobile friendly
  • Google Sheets is great when you are using it on a desktop or a laptop, but when you are on the go, you will be using a mobile to access, audit, and edit the sheets. A mobile app is a clear winner here!

  • Helps teams collaborate seamlessly
  • Mobile apps offer the ability to collaborate with great ease. This means all parties involved can easily work on it together from any location, even when they are on the field. Mobile apps provide a proper working interface for seamless collaboration.
