How drainage design spreadsheets hold engineers back

While spreadsheets can be a powerful tool for drainage designs, the risk of mistakes, the lack of efficiency, and poor visualization options make them untenable for the future of drainage design.

Top reasons to ditch spreadsheets for drainage design software


Despite some assumptions that spreadsheets can be more trustworthy than software, 88% of spreadsheets contain at least one error. Don't put your reputation on the line.

Difficult navigability

Spreadsheets can be chaotic, hiding formulas, and presenting data with conventions that are not intuitive, making it harder to make necessary adjustments and increasing the opportunity for errors.

Poor visualization

Spreadsheets are incapable of visually presenting data, making client buy-in more difficult for drainage designs and impeding stakeholders' understanding of a given project.
