Love the products!

Love the products! They have saved me thousands of hours and they are responsible for me getting a promotion at my last job, which helped me land my current position as a manager.

It's the best $100 we've ever spent!

I talked my supervisor into getting Ultimate Suite. I often deal with huge tables and matching between versions has always been a nightmare. He asked me about the new tools and I said: "It's the best $100 we've ever spent!" Indeed has saved me hours of work time. So, one big "Thanks!"

Mike Cavanagh

Incredible product, even better tech support…AbleBits totally delivers!

I use AbleBits every day and keep finding new uses. Changing jobs, I get my new employer to cough up the very reasonable cost of this software. There're things I just can't complete any other way in large datasets. My coworkers think I'm a wizard. But I'm just a religious user of AbleBits.

Deborah Bryant

Anyone who works with Excel is sure to find their work made easier by Ablebits

I've been using Ultimate Suite for almost a year and found it invaluable for my projects. I like the ability to merge tables based on 1 or more attributes, transpose columns and rows, and to transform data with Cell Cleaner utility. Plus, Ablebits' support is reliably fast and courteous.

Jackie Lee

Excel is at its best now

Ever since I found your add-ons, it has been a life saver or should I say a major time saver. I have bought two packages for both work computers. Excel is at its best now because of you. Thank you!

KUDOS to you guys for solving a problem that our IT department doesn't understand

Our IT thought they know how the sales department should function and destroyed some data files. With AbleBits I was able to regenerate my database in a few clicks. This was AWESOME. KUDOS to you guys for solving a problem that even our IT department doesn't understand.

Erik Peterson

AbleBits suite has really helped me when I was in a crunch!

Having AbleBits suite really helped me when I was in a crunch! It was intuitive and saved time on my job! Now I'm finding other capabilities I wasn't aware of, (first needed the easy merge capability). The other features are valuable time savers as well. Thanks for the product!

Dave Brown

I don't know how to thank you enough for your Excel add-ins

I don't know how to thank you enough. I stumbled upon your site figuring out how to merge 2 tables. When I saw a free trial, I thought how well is this going to work? I downloaded it and am AMAZED. I don't know how I lived without it. THANK YOU for making my life easier.

Jennifer Morningstar

Anybody who experiences it, is bound to love it!

Anybody who experiences it, is bound to love it! There're only 2 ways to "exploit" Excel's potential: be a geek or embrace Ultimate Suite. Why waste time on routines that can happen with a click of a mouse? Make use of Excel's capabilities without wasting time and energy.

Kumar Nepa

The best spent money on software I've ever spent!

I just have to tell you that I love your AbleBits Collection. I can't tell you how much time it has saved me, particularly Merge Tables Wizard, Duplicate Removers, Merge Cells Wizard, and Split Names. This was the best spent money on software I've ever spent!

It is like having an expert at my shoulder helping me…

I feel that Ablebits has people like me in mind with software development. It's like having an expert at my shoulder helping me work more efficiently. Now I have more time to goof off at work. Uh, that last statement isn't true - I just have a lot less stress as things go so much smoother.

Linda Shakespeare

Your software really helps make my job easier
