Allowance for loan and lease losses has been a challenging issue for financial institutions over the past few years. Sageworks recently polled over 130 financial institutions, and 84 percent of the banks were using Excel for their ALLL calculations.  

Some of the benefits of using an automated system over an Excel system include:

1. The work is less easily lost as it is stored and backed up on more than a desktop machine.

2. Unlimited number of users can work on the program at the same time.

3. You can have unlimited access points to the same file without having to worry about different versions or corruptions.

4. The web-based software can be integrated directly with your core system, and you can also change methodologies smoothly without having to rebuild your entire spreadsheets.

5. A web-based solution allows you to advance data into your next calculations, saving time with calculations and documentation. Some examples might include cash flow calculations or pushing forward qualitative factors.
