London, 18 March 2008 – Finsbury Solutions, a leading supplier of Spreadsheet Management and Compliance software to the financial services sector, today announced its appointment to the Microsoft Office Development Advisory Council. This prestigious position is only offered to a select number of companies.

Jeremy Wood, director and co-founder, Finsbury Solutions says: “Being invited onto the Microsoft Office Development Advisory Council is a significant milestone for Finsbury Solutions and is a great endorsement of our work to complement and add value to Microsoft Excel.

“As an established Microsoft partner, Finsbury is at the forefront in the use of the latest Microsoft technologies and products. Finsbury’s Spreadsheet Workbench solution adds an intuitive level of control and transparency to Microsoft Excel.”

Many financial organisations are heavily dependent upon business critical spreadsheet applications, and although spreadsheets provide high levels of flexibility, they also bring increased business risk. Spreadsheet Workbench helps to address spreadsheet risk by providing comprehensive spreadsheet security and access control, version history, a complete audit trail of all spreadsheet changes, plus comprehensive spreadsheet comparison analytics.

David Gainer, Principal Group program manager, Microsoft Excel development team, comments: “We are delighted that Finsbury Solutions is part of the Microsoft Office Developer Advisory Council.
