OnlyExcel was founded for the joy of making work easier. The team come from a background in operations, system design and technology and we apply what we’ve learned from these experiences to help clients reduce, simplify and automate their own systems and processes.

We’ve worked on hundreds of projects with clients ranging from sole traders to multi-nationals. The most common themes among clients have been a willingness to invest in their people and their businesses and an appreciation of the return on that investment over time.

Sometimes solutions are simple, sometimes they are complex. In any case, by engaging us clients realise benefits that include a happier team, more satisfied customers, massive time savings, reduced overheads and more effective and profitable businesses.


Whilst we love tech, we know that it isn’t the answer to everything. With this in mind we always start by engaging with relevant stakeholders who have hands-on knowledge of the business, observing and asking questions to identify innovations that can have the most impact.


Enjoy ourselves

Working together, both with colleagues and clients, should be fun. If it’s not, something has to change. This means removing barriers to progress; embracing flexibility and autonomy; inviting challenge and taking action.

No a**holes

Good relationships are critical at all levels. This means encouraging participation; valuing people and treating them respectfully; seeking open/honest feedback; taking responsibility for our behaviour and expecting the same in return.

Resilience by design

This means big picture / long term thinking instead of short lived gains. It means purposeful improvement; leaving things better than you found them; looking after the wellbeing of both people and the business - because you can't have one without the other.
