    Looking for Excel/Spreadsheet like application that fulfil below criteria

    by vokofe ·


    Good day,

    I am looking for a certain type of excel program for my company that can satisfy the following:

    1) The app needs to be able to open and execute on multiple computers in real time. Whenever someone updates on a PC, changes reflects immediately on all PCs.
    (Similar to Google Spreadsheet)

    2) The application must be able to run WITHOUT the need of Internet. If for some reason, the 3rd party server or our ISP is down,
    As long as company server and Intranet is available, the app can still run.
    (Hence, it is of best interest to place the app on company shared drive)

    3) Must be able to apply permissions to app:
    Admin PC – Full admin rights
    User PC – Can run, read, write contents. Cannot delete/move/copy app from folder

    4) Minimise the need to sign-ins to use. User can double click and run app immediately.

    Applications we have considered:
    A) Microsoft Excel – Does not fulfil criteria (1). If app is running on a PC, other PC users cannot open/edit

    B) Google Spreadsheet – Does not fulfil criteria (2).

    If anyone can think of a simple solution to this, do let me know.
    Much appreciated
