    Reviews from Real Users

    IBM SPSS Statistics is a solution that stands out when compared to many of its competitors. Two major advantages it offers are the sheer number of functionalities that it puts at a user’s disposal and its user-friendly system interface.

    The director of systems management & MIS operations at a university writes, “The SPSS interface is very accessible and user-friendly. It's really easy to get information from it. I've shared it with experts and beginners, and everyone can navigate it. It's a dashboard where they can get more information. And then, if they want to do a deeper dive into some things, they tell us, and we will work with the research department. We can either add or point to the field or fields and give them some more details.”

    Laurence M., a professor of health services research at a university, writes, “The most valuable feature of IBM SPSS Statistics is all the functionality it provides.”
