Our team of legendary Microsoft Excel MVP’s is one of the things that sets us apart from the competition. Some of the other things that set us apart from the rest are that our group of companies first opened our Microsoft Consultancy in Irvine California some 25-years ago, in 1994. Our focus has been to help the business sector, government sector, college sector, non-profits sector, as well as individuals with their Microsoft Excel, Access, Office and Power BI programming and training needs. Since then we have worked on over 7,000 Excel, Access, Office, SQL Server, Azure and Power BI projects from Irvine and New York to Canada and the UK. That is a lot of work over a lot of years; that is about as much experience as one can possibly get. Our legendary team of Microsoft Excel MVP’s led the way, working with many of our best known international clients, such as Microsoft, the US Navy, the YMCA, & Harvard for example.
Over those past 25 years, many of our projects have been centered around working locally, one-on-one with one of our Microsoft Certified, legendary Microsoft Excel MVP’s, the top 1% of Microsoft Excel Subject Matter Experts.
Locally here in the states, from New York to Texas to California, and with many spots in between, then on to Canada and the UK, our local Microsoft Excel MVP’s have worked with our local clients, face-to-face. For those that are not in the major Microsoft consultancy markets, we work one-on-one using a screen share session, so we can work one-on-one, remotely. We can often record the online session, providing you with a complementary copy to support your work with us.
Onsite, locally, or remotely, we are accomplish the same things in Microsoft Excel, we are just not sitting side-by-side in your office. Many of our clients prefer working remotely as it is more convenient, and at times comes at a discount to onsite rates.
A better product: Our clients have benefited from working with around a dozen of the legendary Microsoft MVP’s over the years, just one way we provide a Smarter Microsoft Solution.
Why does that matter? What is a Microsoft Excel MVP? Good questions, but to answer in short, Microsoft Excel MVP’s are the Microsoft Excel Subject Matter Experts, Microsoft Certifies and Awards Excel MVP’s on an annual basis, usually about 130 in the world. When it comes to advanced data visualization in Excel, look no further than a Microsoft Certified Microsoft Excel MVP, such as Jacob, you just found the best of the best.
When it comes to being an expert in Microsoft Excel, Jacob (Microsoft Excel MVP) can tell you that you must master the Custom Data Visualization tools and methods available in Microsoft Excel. Being able to build advanced Dashboards, Pivot Tables, Charts and Graphs, reports and analysis, etc., you must be a true Microsoft Excel Subject Matter Expert, and the 130 or so Microsoft Excel MVP’s annually certified by Microsoft fit that bill.
One of the most important aspects of hiring a Microsoft Excel consultant, programmer or trainer is this, how deep and thorough is their knowledge. Do they practice best practices, do they build a truly advanced system? The leading Microsoft Excel MVP’s have the decades of daily programming experience needed to be the Microsoft Excel subject matter experts.

Millions of people “know Excel”, many people are pretty good with it, some are advanced, yet so few are what Microsoft would certify as an Excel Subject Matter Experts or Data Visualization Experts. Microsoft Certifies roughly around 130 in the world at any one time. You must be renewed each year or you lose the award, which happens annually. These are the Microsoft Excel Subject Matter Experts and they are the top 1% of all Microsoft Excel Experts.
In Microsoft Excel just as with most things, the 80/20 rule applies. 20% of the people using Excel are advanced or better; 80% of Excel users are just that, “users” and not expert level programmers or trainers. The fact is that the majority of people use Excel poorly at best. But that is fine as they are not working as Excel experts, or at least we hope not. But what if you want to work with the top 5% of Excel experts? Well that is where the Microsoft Certification as a Microsoft Excel MVP comes into play, Microsoft has vetted these 130 or so Excel experts to be the Microsoft Certified Microsoft Excel Subject Matter Experts.
So if Microsoft certifies these people as the Excel subject matter experts, why would you work with anyone else? Does it really matter how deep or accurate their knowledge of Excel is? YES. There are countless ways to do things in Microsoft Excel. There are more wrong ways to do things than there are right ways. Best practices definitely applies if you want an efficient, powerful, integrated and automated system.
