Takes me back...

I, err I mean a friend, at a high-street travel agency selling traveller's cheques coded a mahoosive Excel app that calculated anticipated profits, taking into account mean time to redemption for cheques, short and long-term interest rates, buy/sell price variance etc.

Using the results, we walked away from sales channels which were huge turnover but zero profit.
