If you love your spreadsheets - keep them

We know there's people out there who just love their spreadsheets. We understand. Octopus does not need them, but we created different ways for you to include them if you want.

Copy and paste for example many trades at once directly from your spreadsheet into the trade blotter to import them.

Link them for a direct feed of all kinds of calculations that you like to do on the side rather than have Octopus do them for you.

Or export any given data from Octopus back into a spreadsheet to play around with it.

   Fast and easy way to capture multiple trades with the trade blotter tool, including export and email function

With our unique trade blotter tool this system offers a fast and easy way for fund managers to capture their trades. And if you really love your excel sheets you can even keep them. Copy & paste from an excel spreadsheet is possible and allows entering multiple trades at once. Alternatively you can also directly import your trades from incoming broker statements. Whichever way you chose - eliminating manual input will save you lots of time and help eliminate errors. And upon closing the blotter you’ll also have the option to either print, export or email it to other recipients.
