In a January 2016 press release, we reported that Frontline had surpassed 100,000 users of its cloud-based advanced analytics tools for Excel Online and Google Sheets. Now -- ten months later -- we're pleased to report another milestone: We've surpassed 200,000 users of these same tools, plus our new, comprehensive cloud-based platform

Frontline now offers seven advanced analytics tools for cloud spreadsheets -- including Solver for optimization, Risk Solver for Monte Carlo simulation, and XLMiner Analysis ToolPak for statistical analysis -- and three cloud-based, self-contained platforms for advanced analytics:,, and To our knowledge, no other vendor of advanced analytics software tools comes close. Indeed, as of this date none of our "traditional" competitors for optimization, simulation, or data mining add-ins in desktop Excel have any cloud-based tools, or any cloud users.

We're taking just a moment to celebrate, but we certainly aren't pausing, or even slowing down. We have big news in store for early 2017, and more to come throughout the next year. Stay tuned!
