What People are Saying...

I have been a fan and advocate for QI Macros for about as long as you have been in business. For the past 10 years I have been an ISO 9000 Consultant and use QI Macros for my data analysis and have had most of my customers buy QI Macros. All of my customers are small companies, QI Macros meets and exceeds their needs at a fraction of the costs of a Minitab or other similar products.
