MY BEST TECH: Sam Yip

Patrick Stafford /

Sam Yip is the senior research manager for Telsyte, and an expert in the area of eCommerce and online retail. But his favourite piece of tech isn’t anything new at all – it’s a 20-year-old part of the Microsoft Office suite that’s still in use today.

“It’s a classic. The things I learned 10 years ago about Excel still apply today, so it’s not redundant at all.”

“The good thing is all the stuff I learn about it – all the formulas and so on – I know I’m not wasting my time with them because they’re not going to change. All the things I’ve learned over time still apply today.”
