    Realtime online collaboration is awesome. Sharing a spreadsheet that has to be filled with a simple link, have the other side fill it online and get the results instantly is great.

    Google Sheets steps in 21st century and for modern collaborative business office environment is "for now" a way ahead of MS Office. You have "query" command which is quite powerful, as well as "importrange". Seamless integration with Google Forms and mail service plus plugins and scripts goes far beyond MS slow-online trying.

    It has a pretty decent pivot table function, the closest to MS Excel I know. It is worth trying.
