Powerful Optimization Capabilities at a Great Price

Excel Solver compatibleUse existing Solver models and VBA macros as-is, but solve faster -- just open your workbook and solve.
Solve larger modelsHandle linear problems with up to 2,000 decision variables, 10X the limits of the basic Excel Solver, and other problems up to 500 variables, 2.5X the limits of the basic Solver.
Build better modelsGuided Mode helps you better understand your model, refine it for better answers in less time, and find and correct any errors.  When you're up to speed, Auto-Help Mode gives you expert help only when you encounter an error.
Get answers in less timeFind solutions between 2X and 50X faster (depending on your model type) with more advanced Solver engines and optimization algorithms.
Easy to use interfaceUse either a dialog-based interface that matches the basic Excel Solver, or our Ribbon and Task Pane interface with quick access to advanced features and help.
Helpful example modelsOver 60 example models show you step by step how to create a basic Solver model, build more complex models, and use advanced features.
Remove guessworkDefine your model and Premium Solver Pro will determine its type and automatically choose the best available Solver engine to solve it.
Easy upgradesWe developed the solver in Excel -- you get a 100% compatible upgrade now, and the ability to upgrade further to Solver products handling up to millions of decision variables, all the way to full-power predictive and prescriptive analytics.

Capture Uncertainty in Your Models to Make Even Better Decisions

Conventional optimization is a great decision making tool. But you can go further to take into account uncertainty, by seamlessly combining Risk Solver Pro with Premium Solver Pro. Together, they'll search through thousands of possible decisions and, for each one, through thousands of possible outcomes to identify the best decision.  And this combo can be upgraded further, whenever you want, to Risk Solver Platform, for even greater stochastic optimization power.

Risk Solver Pro Plus Premium Solver Pro
Easily add simulationAdding simulation to an optimization model is easy and you'll be amazed by the additional insights and decision making confidence you'll get as a result.
Better answersOur Evolutionary Solver for simulation optimization models gets you the best answers by intelligently analyzing your model, and automatically choosing from a range of built-in, advanced solving methods -- more than any other product.
The speed you needRisk Solver Pro's simulation speed advantage is even greater when solving inherently more complex simulation optimization models.
Single interfaceBoth products share a single integrated interface so you can easily and quickly build simulation optimization models, with variables and constraints just like the Excel Solver.
More for lessFor less than competitors charge just for simulation optimization, you'll also get all the advanced Monte Carlo simulation features standard with Risk Solver Pro.
