The Chart-me XLS Excel add-in makes it fast and easy to create high quality reports and presentations based on the SUCCESS formula of IBCS®.
With the help of numerous predefined page layouts, chart and table types, the first results emerge in just a few minutes. If required, individual settings can be made. Also, subsequent adjustments are no problem with the Chart-me XLS user interface. All typical IBCS® elements can be generated easily with the click of the mouse: special chart types, visualizations of deviations, highlighting, color logic, scaling control, and much more. Even true-to-scale stretching and resizing of charts in relation to the font size functions automatically with Chart-me XLS.
Since the charts can be combined as needed (superimposed), this presents a substantial amount of visualization options. All common contents can thus be handled extremely well. The finished report and presentation pages are stored as simple Excel files. The graphics can be displayed and updated at any time even without using the add-in.

Functions and workflow
The idea behind Chart-me XLS: You have ideas or designs for new report or presentation pages and want to see results as quickly as possible. With just a few mouse clicks, in the Chart-me menu you select predefined graphics which are closest to the desired result. Then you complete the pages – depending on your needs – with individual advanced settings. As opposed to previous Excel templates, you concentrate entirely on the contents, design specifications, and division of the page, not on data series or chart tricks.
