    Excel, any experts here?

    Customer wants to work on Excel sheets with 2-3 parties at the same time. Is that possible? Does it need a server environment or would it work somehow with workstations connected through peer-peer?

    There is a Microsoft forum similar to this copier one, you may get more advice on there.

    The easiest way to do this is with co-authoring. Share the file with anyone who needs access to it, and you can collaborate in real time. The only restriction is you need Office 365 for this to work.

    We used to use shared Excel workbooks where several people do almost simultaneously changes in the book and it will works most of the times.

    We do this with Google Drive / Google Sheets all day long. Works great. Not sure if that is an option for your situation, but Sheets can do almost everything that Excel can (for free).

    Google Drive is the best solution.
    Free (15GB), secure and save in the cloud.
    If they want infinite space, they can buy it.

    And I failed to mention, Xerox, Ricoh/Lanier & Kyocera have an app that connects directly to Google drive so you can scan right into your account from the device. Xerox and Lanier/Ricoh does not allow their operation panels to store credentials, so everytime you access your account you have to log in, which is cumbersome. Kyocera however does so you can access your account much easier. Users hate having to log in every single time.
