About The Author

For the past 20 years, Statistics Solutions has been in the academic and business sectors, primarily designing, conducting, reporting, and explaining quantitative analyses. At the core of our activities, and what researchers, businesses, and students yearned for, was simply to bring accurate, understandable meaning to their data. That’s it. Interestingly, we noticed that while the need was there, the tools to conduct and disseminate findings hadn’t substantively changed in those 20 years. Frustrated with antiquated reporting tools, and aware of the growing global need, Intellectus Statistics™ was born.

Intellectus Statistics is a very powerful statistics tool that provides a platform where users can easily conduct an analysis and have an in-depth interpreted output in understandable plain English in 5 seconds. Additionally, we’ve added common sense features. Preloaded assumptions, post-hoc tests, tables, figures, are all built-in. Glossaries, video tutorials, and real technical support further guide users.

Data collection continues to grow and unfortunately meaningful data analysis is too uncommon. Therefore, our mission in the next 20 years is to become the world’s leader in statistical and reporting software. From academia to appraisal adjusting, HR to healthcare, direct marketing to credit scoring, everyone needs to know what their data means. Intellectus Statistics answers that need.
