How It Works

HiveLink lets you turn your Excel model into a live service. Keep your intellectual property safe on your machine and give your clients 24-7 access online. All without hiring a development team.

1. Configure your master spreadsheet

Use the HiveLink Expert add-in for Excel to designate user input tables and output result tables.

2. Design a lightweight user spreadsheet

Generate a user spreadsheet and remove your sensitive calculations and macros, leaving only the user interface you design.

3. Set up your landing page

Customize your page with information, screenshots and a company logo. Upload your lightweight spreadsheet so it’s available for your users.

4. Invite clients to use your model

Email invitations to your clients from a central dashboard. See all of your users and manage their permissions.

Clients have immediate access

Your clients go straight from your invitation to the model page you designed. They can sign up for a free account and download your lightweight spreadsheet with just a few clicks.

Users get results without installing anything

Users access your service without having to install any software. Their lightweight spreadsheet gets their results remotely using the embedded HiveLink add-in. Your users are always authenticated, so they can access a full history of their results.

See your model come to life

The HiveLink Data Inbox connects securely to our servers to receive your users’ input data, so you don’t need to reconfigure your network or worry about security. HiveLink drives Excel without mercy, running your users’ data through your master spreadsheet and delivering results automatically.
