SAN FRANCISCO, May 24, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Equals, the creators of the next-gen spreadsheet, announced today the launch of the first native AI assistant for spreadsheets. Equals is a browser-based spreadsheet with built-in integrations to any database, versioning, and collaboration that now includes a powerful AI assistant called AI Assist.
For decades, spreadsheets have been a vital tool for business operations. However, given the advent of hundreds of separate apps for business data and analysis, building an analysis no longer starts with Excel or Sheets. This problem is solved with Equals, the next-gen spreadsheet that can connect to several sources of data, enabling users to create dynamic and real-time analyses. With the AI Assist feature at the users’ disposal, they can now modernize their workflow with advanced functionality. Using the shortcut Command+J, Equals’ AI Assist feature simplifies (1) writing and debugging SQL queries from connected databases, (2) fixing, writing, and explaining formulas in any cell, and (3) editing and summarizing charts in a spreadsheet.
“At Andreesen Horowitz, we believe AI will transform how users interact with software and give them superpowers. After casting about for startups disrupting spreadsheets with AI and more, Equals was the standout solution. Their AI Assist feature provides users with spreadsheet superpowers,” said Kristina Shen, General Partner at Andreesen Horowitz.
Equals offers free accounts to explore the AI Assist tool’s capabilities on their official website, equals.com/ai.
Equals was founded by Bobby Pinero and Ben McRedmond in 2021. The firm recently raised $16 million in Series A funding led by Andreesen Horowitz to challenge spreadsheets’ status quo and rethink how they’re made today. Equals is a browser-based spreadsheet with native AI functionality. It incorporates integrated data connections such as SQL databases, data warehouses like Snowflake, and critical business systems such as QuickBooks, Salesforce, and more.
