Frontline Systems is the developer of the Solver in Microsoft Excel, as well as enhanced Solver products for Excel with powerful optimization, simulation/risk analysis, and data mining capabilities. We are providing a Solver App that enables users of the Excel Web Application in SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 to find optimal solutions for Solver models in Excel workbooks, with features (except for reports) matching the Excel Solver. We also plan to offer paid Apps with enhanced Solver capabilities.
Over 7,000 organizations, including a majority of Fortune 1000 companies and many government units, have purchased licenses for Frontline’s enhanced Solver products. Solver has been included in each Microsoft Excel version from Excel 3.0 in 1990 to Excel 2013 today, and is available to nearly 750 million users worldwide. Our enhanced Solvers are described in over 35 textbooks, and have been used by several hundred thousand MBA students to learn optimization, simulation, and data mining concepts.
