With Resolver One, you can do so much more than a normal spreadsheet

Today Resolver Systems announces the $25,000 Resolver One challenge, a competition to reward people who share their best Resolver One spreadsheets with the world. Each month between now and May, they will award $2,000 to the best spreadsheet submitted -- and in May, an award of $15,000 will be made to the best of the best.

"With Resolver One, you can do so much more than a normal spreadsheet", explained Robert Smithson, co-founder of Resolver Systems. "You can build web applications; Resolver One contains its own web server. You can run scenario analyses. You can put software objects -- .NET and Python -- directly in cells. In other words, forget everything you previously thought about spreadsheets, the constraints of the last 25 years are gone. You can build complex, rich applications, in a familiar spreadsheet environment."

The first round of the spreadsheet challenge closes at midnight on 15 January, 2009. For more information, please visit
