Pros: XLSTAT can process even spatial data as raster to CSV converted files and enables to prepare the data just like in Excel. Data preparation is the single tedious task which consumes most of the time in a data science project. XLSTAT has all standard features and algorithms of machine learning software which can be operated by editing simple spreadsheets.

Cons: Not suitable for processing a big dataset with 10 million rows such as high-resolution remote sensing images

Overall: XLSTAT can be best described as the software for data science from beginner to advanced levels that can be operated without the need of technical guidance. Sampling, data preparation, exploratory data analysis to building prediction models with state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms generally encompasses a set of requirements: a clear objective, a software with all standard features and algorithms, intuition, technical guidance, and probably, also experience. With XLSTAT, the first one in the list alone is sufficient enough to successfully accomplish the goal; the rest is taken care of by XLSTAT. In the academic milieu, we regularly face the task of explaining students of how statistical models are built from a set of data and their specific applications accompanied by demonstrations in the classroom. This includes even spatial and time-series data. This tutoring approach goes a long way in encouraging students towards a dissertation project involving data-driven modelling. In this situation, undergraduates who only have some basic operational knowledge about Excel spreadsheets are easily drawn into using a data science platform which runs on the already familiar Excel and transforms their data in spreadsheets into powerful and efficient models. This is where XLSTAT becomes the default platform for data science projects. In short, XLSTAT is a workhorse for data scientists with a few simple mouse clicks and visualizing the response in every step as stunning graphics.

Many thanks for your detailed review! It is now possible to load data files which exceed the standard Excel worksheet size. This import method loads data into the computer¿s memory rather than the worksheet. This option is currently available for regression, normality tests and data management tasks but we plan to integrate it to more features.

Pros: Being an extension of the excel interface facilitates its use and is relatively simple. The output formats of the results are easy to interpret and to be used in other applications.

Cons: For the same reason that it is a program that opens within another (add-in for Excel, Microsoft), any change in the operating system or in the Excel itself impacts the performance of XLSTAT. Unfortunately, in recent yeas this has happened very frequently, leaving out those who has not contracted the support/update service, since in some cases it is possible that XLSTAT stops working completely. There is a real dependence on the support/update service even for basic operation.

Overall: I have used XLSTAT for more than 5 years for data analysis in the field of health sciences (basic, clinical and epidemiological research) with good results.

I have tried to recommend the use of XLSTAT to other colleagues, but the cost of licenses and the need to renew the support / update service every year is a major obstacle.

I have needed assistance for XLSTAT use several times, and the response of the support team has always been promptly and in a satisfactory way.

I think that thanks to the fact that we are already many users of XLSTAT and that it has been several years since its launch -with which the costs of the initial investments have already been amortized-, they could lower the costs of the licenses, in order to encourage users to keep using this useful software, as well as to attract new users to this growing community.

Vendor Response

by Addinsoft on March 27, 2019

Thank you for your review. Indeed, as an Excel add-on XLSTAT depends on Microsoft Office. Therefore, we have to constantly develop and release new versions to ensure full compatibility with the most recent versions of Excel. This is why, when purchasing a perpetual license, we establish a maintenance contract valid for one year, renewable each year at a reduced rate.

Pros: I like its integration with Excel and its multiple array of functions at an affordable price. I have been using JMP and StatView in the past. The former has gotten to be very expensive and the latter is no longer available. For a user requiring basic to moderate statistical tools this program is excellent. It does reasonable charting using Excel's capabilities. I have not tried the charting modules as they are not essential to what I do.

Cons: It took me a while to get used to it. The manual is not easy to navigate. I have looked at some tutorials and found them helpful. Perhaps setting an Introductory course to "Become a proficient XLSTAT user" lets say in 12-24 sessions could be helpful.

Overall: I use XLSTAT for data analysis I encounter with my clinical research and review work.

Pros: I liked the easy the interface works, and the vast and powerful statistic tools on it. I used the normal version and has enough tools for research in biotechnology. When I tried the premium version I can use several techniques and I really considered to buy it.

Cons: The high price, and the economic version only last one year. I recommended that once your license ends you can continue some of the features integrated on that license and don't block you all access even the free trail.

Overall: I really took advantage for the features provided on the normal version and I will definitly will renew my supscription

Pros: XLSTAT provides basic functionality that is not available in MS EXCEL- most importantly non-parametric tests. Scientists have to understand that the majority of their data is not normally distributed, consequently the tests MS EXCEL contains are not sufficient. While EXCEL is a powerful and often underrated tool, its functionality is incomplete without XLSTAT.

To my students I recommend to use at least the free XLSTAT basic version.

Cons: Unfortunately, there is still no compendium of all commands and the corresponding sytnax.

E.g. if you dont want every result to be displayed on a new sheet, but rather in EXCEL style in a single cell, you need to use XLSTAT commands, such as "=XLSTAT_MannWhitney(array1,array2,a) - here, a stands for tails, but nobody knows what you have to enter this is poor.

I feel it cant be that hard to add a complete list of commands with syntax.

Overall: Using it for a few years now and cant imagine using EXCEL without it.

Pros: XLSTAT has a range of depth of functionality even in its Basic version which is outstanding and the fact that it sits happily on top of EXCEL makes it a winner as far as I am concerned. Statistics has always been lurking in my academic and professional background but just using and experimenting with XLSTAT features on my data sets has allowed me to explore a range of possibilities that would have sent me nuts if using SPSS. An exceptional piece of software and a brilliant learning and research tool.

Cons: Nothing - it has enhanced my research no end.

Overall: My research entails the exploration of the data generated by test subjects making high-speed visual judgements. As it has moved through upgrades I have taken benefit of the additional functionality added into the software by the XLSTAT team. Occasionally I have messed up the upgrade or spotted a problem and the support team have been just that - they have provided excellent support and with my ability to get things wrong that has been invaluable.

Pros: Being involved in statistics for more than 50 years, I never found so easy to compute statistical tests and draw figures (more espcially for multivariate statistics) with a statistical program. The main advantage of XLSTAT is that it adds a lot of tools to Excel, now also some procesures from R (still to be extended to ade4, for instance). I recommand it, not only for students, but also to all scientists.

Cons: The price is a little too high, please make an effort to decrease it

Overall: XLSTAT is the only statistical tool I use for all my publications in the frame of quantittive ecology

Pros: I am in natural science research, which means I am always looking into finding efficient data analysis options. I came across XLSTAT during my Masters. It was easy to add into Excel ( my main data management software), which allowed me to carry out multivariate analysis and do so with ease. As an excel add-in, this was ideal because it became part of the interface without me having to use different applications. This software definitely enhanced my data analysis at the time.

Cons: I had the free trial - it kept crashing and definitely had some bugs. This meant that I had to plan my data analysis accordingly, which was somewhat limiting for my research.

Second to this, I occasionally had some user issues with basic functions like data selections.

The advertisements and notices to upgrade were really irritating and deterred me from wanting to do so.

Lastly, as I continue into my PhD, I will not be buying XLSTAT because there are more powerful tools out there that are available for free - specifically R. If XLSTAT had the same capabilities but with a more user friendly approach - I would definitely not hesitate in purchasing it.

Overall: Awesome for researchers who are non-R users.

Thank you for your review. You can certainly call any R function using our XLSTAT-R and XLSTAT-RNotebook tools. This is a user-friendly interface which allows you to call R scripts directly within Excel or using XLSTAT dialog boxes. Available in all XLSTAT solutions as well as the Trial version.

Pros: Compared to several other statistical software I've used during my undergraduate, this software is relatively easy to use. But this does not come at the cost of features. In fact, I do not need to look out for other softwares because XLSTAT is just enough for me fo my data analysis purposes.

Cons: There are some features that I haven't used at all, so I think this is probably what I like least about the software: Some features to me are of negligible importance, at least for now.

Pros: XLSTAT makes multivariate analysis a snap. I have been a SAS user since 1982 and use it for some analysis where I need the detailed diagnostics. However, I try to utilize statistics packages that are easier to use when possible which makes it much simpler to instruct more junior scientists how to perform advanced analysis and XLSTAT is really good for this. I make it a practice to check any new statistical package against SAS results and XLSTAT passes with flying colors.

Cons: The only problem I have encountered with XLSTAT is having EXCEL crash n occasion, though this may have more to do with how our IT department has configured our computers.

Overall: Our group is responsible for a large number of sensory tests. XLSTAT makes it easy to turn these studies around quickly with the tables and charts it produces.

Besides, proper explanation in each output is really helpful so that my interpretation in writing became easier. In addition, i can found the tutorial for every analysis i needed easily.

Cons: i try very hard to find out the part that i like least about this software. but i cant found it. Sorry.

Overall: XLSTAT help me solving analysis for my PHD thesis that concentrated in talent identification in sports. Machine learning is the best part i found in XLSTAT. Since the application of machine learning in sports is very new, XLSTAT make me easier to run the data and interpret it. Thanks XLSTAT!

Pros: Easy to use but powerful

It allows to perform excel analyses/sorting in parallel to statistical analyses.

Lots of options are available in the different analysis tools

Different packages are available so one does not have to pay for analyses that one will never use.

Lots of tutorials are available

Cons: It does not allow to draw nice graphs of the results such as graphpad prism. This is a shame as most of my colleagues in biomedical research prefer Prism just because of these graphs that can be modified and edited easily

More tutorials could be added for more complex analyses (such as paired samples eg)

Overall: I have become used to solve statistical issues for colleagues because it is easy to use and powerful but does not require a special language

Pros: First, it is not based on an enormous statistical package and the articulation with Excel is most of the time excellent. Second it is very reliable and easy to use (at least if you are a little bit familiar with the field). Third, it does many things and some versions are very complete, enough to satisfy in most cases all your needs. Fourth, you'll find very specialised analysis or tests beside the common ones. Fifth, the value for money is excellent and the accompanying doc is extensive.

Cons: Well, some repetitive analysis are boring, but it does the job.

Overall: I do clinical trials and lab data analysis (and quality control) and am happy with the overall performance. Cut and paste to the reports is easy. Fine tool.

Pros: I rave endlessly about the usability of XLSTAT and the variety of statistics available. I've dealt with countless statistical softwares and they can be incredibly frustrating to use with a very high learning curve. XLSTAT is the exact opposite of that and you don't have to convert any of your data into obscure formats to use it! All formats easily import into and out of excel making XLSTAT the ideal program.

Cons: The only cons are the price tag and the inability to customize what statistics you need most without buying additional premium packages. It is extremely expensive if you aren't a student or affiliated with an organization who sponsors the payment for this program.

Overall: Overall, I have truly enjoyed using XLSTAT. It has streamlined my research and made my life much easier. I worry about whether I can afford it when I am no longer a student and when I need to expand what statistics I need.

Cons: Nothing really. If I had to pick something though, I would say that it is a shame that tools cannot be bought individually. Sometimes you just need one tool (i.e. Penalty analysis), but you need to buy the full package/module (i.e. the Sensory).

Pros: I appreciate having access to a number of basic and advanced analytical methods for business analytics. If you don't code, having an easy-to-use Excel-based tool allows you to both analyze and interpret your data.

Cons: It can be temperamental. If not used in a very particular sequence, the software can freeze and either need to be restarted or unlocked by pressing the F5 key. The software is also limited by high-dimensional data. Running a regression with more than a set number of variables may not be possible.

Overall: The software has allowed me to do some really useful analysis for my company while also helping me to visualize my findings for important meetings. I like the software and would recommend it if you don't code and want a relatively simple and inexpensive Excel-based solution.

Pros: This software has a wide range of statistical tests. Any statistical need I have, I am able to answer my question using XLSTAT. Other programs are very limited in the tests that are offered. I have not had this problem with XLSTAT.

Cons: Very rarely, the software will freeze, and I will lose unsaved work entirely.

Overall: XLSTAT is easy to use and understand for people who are looking to perform more advanced statistics. In addition to the software, any question I have had has been easily answered on the XLSTAT website. I have used this program for about 2 years now and plan to continue renewing this program in the future.

Pros: Interface with excel makes it very practical and easy to use.

Access to support is great.

General statistical package is very inclusive.

Cons: I would like the ability to do ANOSIM and SIMPER. These are the popular/standard multivariate programs used in ecological studies. Presently folks are stuck with primer-e which is very expensive and made for Windows. When I upgraded to a more recent version of XLSTAT, I thought I would have access to these. PERMANOVA (adonis) is not the same. Please consider adding these through you R connection (e.g. vegan).

Pros: The ease of use; the instruction/manual on the website is very detailed; the technical support response me via email very quickly; the functions meet most of my daily statistical analysis requirement. Especially the power functions in sensory analysis module.

Cons: I hope XLSTAT could develop more multivariate analysis functions, e.g. OPLS-DA, currently, only PLS-DA is available. In addition, it is also necessary to add cross-validation and permutation test of (O)PLS-DA. It would be great to offer more features regarding the plotting function.

Pros: Software reminds me of some of the functionality of the older SAS software.

As I am used to that sort of thing... for me it's very cool.

The environment is friendly looking, EXCEL Look, so it's not too scary and that is good for some of our newer users. Don't think I have used the full spectrum of statistical functions, however, for what we require it's very nice. Output looks very impressive on our reports/presentations.

The links to the 'help' notes and examples are great features.

Cons: I would have liked to see an easier way to make it available on more machines in our laboratories/offices. I have it on one machine but I need some help in adding that across groups.

Overall: We added this as an additional piece to our great testing abilities. The statistical format, and the XLSTAT reference, is a good one to point out in the field. It's well known out there so no need to explain some hocus-pocus statistical nightmare to customers.

Pros: While XLSTAT has relatively fewer features than do other statistical analysis softwares in the market, it is very easy to use and can quickly meet your not-so-complicated data analysis. This is what I value most at the software.

Cons: As I mentioned above, it does not have a lot of features. So this should probably be a minus. Also, I sometimes encounter some technical problems with exporting outputs, where outputs are simply nothing other than a blank sheet!

Pros: The software is user-friendly, results are easy to interpret, it's an all-in-one software. The fact that it can be integrated with excel removes the need to import data, which is freaking awesome. The other software that I have used require extensive training beforehand, however, with XLStat, the support from the team and webinars were enough to navigate the software like a pro.

Cons: Nothing really. I honestly love XLSTAT.

Overall: We use XLSTAT to analyse biological data. The software is readily available, easy to install, easy to use and easy to master. It really is the perfect software for the analyses we do at our research group.

XLSTAT been really useful for me to create the interactive graphs in excel itself and modify them the way I want with no further issues or limitations.

Cons: I would like to see an option to directly export the publication quality graphs out of XLSTAT with an option to change the dpi and image size. An inclusion of error bars will make this software even more powerful.

Pros: Ease of use, interpretation of results and accompanying tutorial for easy development of capacity.

Cons: Which the cost can be reduced for early-career researchers in developing countries.

Overall: I used XLSTAT in undertaking the preliminary analysis required for hydrological studies, including, (i) missing data imputation, (ii) trend and homogeneity test, (iii) outlier test and (iv) autocorrelation. The processess where easy and step-wise, compared to other tools that required mastering of coding languaged and data processing in particular formats. It saved me a great deal of time in my Thesis development.

Very useful stats tool.

Pros: XLSTAT is easy and largely intuitive to use. The manual and examples are quite helpful. I have found it easy to work through numerous analyses with few glitches or problems. In addition, the computation time is reasonable.

Cons: I was hoping for more utility with the PERMANOVA analysis, but it doesn't work well, at least in a Mac environment. I'm also not a big fan of the graphics, and unfortunately the 3-d package is available only for Windows.

Overall: Over all, very good.

Pros: The software integrated perfectly from the start with our already existing Excels software. Additionally, newly made files worked perfectly after the initial set up process as well.

The conversion to CSV works like a charm and saves our entire team so much time as a result. It cuts down the process immensely and we're very happy with it as a result.

It was very easy to set up as well, and teach to the rest of our team

Cons: Higher end sets of data (which are unusual for us) have some trouble processing. It's a small quirk but it can be noticeable when you're trying to convert larger files.

It can be a little pricey, but for our business it's proved crucial as a must-have software

Overall: Very pleased with XLSTAT!

Cons: I cant say there is really anything I like least about the software except maybe after completing a task and a new tab is generated...it would be nice if the menu bar made available following certain test functions was more understandable.

Overall: I have conducted several statistical tests utilizing XLStat, including proportion tests, basic descriptive statistical analysis, as well as survey creation and medical record evaluation tool questionnaires. Results of findings were highly comparable to other statistical software as well.

Pros: Ease of use, variety of options, seamless integration in Excel

Cons: email-only customer support, regular data "overflows"

Overall: We mainly use XLSTAT for clustering and classifying (Naive Bayes) purposes. The tool gives us all the analysis we need and more.

However, every now and then I have issues with "data overflows" - initially it happens when you select not just the range but the whole sheet, which is easy to fix. But later it started happening when at least one other xls file is opened (which is kinda ridiculous).

Another small issue we had - for some reason, our annual subscription didn't autorenew properly - we were charged by the ecommerce platform they use for transactions but this information has not been passed to xlstat and our license key was not accepted as valid until we pinged the customer support. Anyways, this is minor and might not even be xlstat's fault.

Pros: I really enjoyed the ease of use in terms of providing inputs and seeing results. The input templates for various statistical tests made these calculations relatively straight forward.

Cons: I personally only have an introductory statistics knowledge (so far!) so I found it hard to understand what tests I wanted to run to receive the information I needed. This was especially the case for tests that I have not conducted before. The online training site was helpful as a guide but hard to translate to my own scenarios.

Pros: I thought it was very easy to use and when I had any questions, customer service was there to help. This software helped me get through statistics and finish with grade I desired. So many sample problems and solutions to help when you don't understand a concept. Would recommend this as much as I can!

Cons: I personally did not believe there was many cons to this software. Only con would be that some of the formulas are hard to understand but when taken time to thoroughly execute each variable and then apply to the extra problems given, figuring it out was possible.

Overall: I wish there were more softwares like XLSTAT for my other business courses. It truly was a great experience.
