Comes down to how much you value your time at and how long it'll take to complete in excel. With a smaller company, sure, Excel all the way right. But when you're dealing with tens of thousands on a monthly basis it would actually be more cost effective to use an account system (assuming you value yourself at a reasonable rate).
