The #1 Choice Around the World for Optimization in Excel

  • Solve every type and size of conventional optimization problem
  • Build better models with less effort and solve them up to 40X+ faster
  • Build models in Excel with no programming required
  • Use enhanced analysis and reporting capabilities to more easily share and sell-in results

Solves Much Larger and More Complex Problems than Excel Solver

  • Solves linear programming problems up to 8,000 variables. (That’s 40 times the capacity of the standard Excel Solver.)
  • Solves problems with integer constraints up to 2,000 variables (10 times the capacity of the Excel Solver).
  • Plug-in Solver Engines for Premium Solver Platform can solve linear programming problems with an unlimited number of variables.  If one is needed, you can try out the Large-Scale LP/QP Solver, MOSEK Solver, XPRESS Solver, and Gurobi Solver free of charge, and choose the one that best fits your needs.
