What do our Customers say about us?

Your website is hugely informative and a pleasure to visit. Frankly I wouldn’t dream of buying technical software from anyone else.

When working with many data points, graphing is often the quickest way to qualify data and identify trends. With the Origin statistics gadget, it’s also easy to pull quantitative information, such as mean and standard deviation, straight from a data plot. This lets me make better decisions about which data to select for more detailed analysis.

Course was excellent, Bob was very thorough, covering a lot of ground. The content was just what was required. Very pleased!

The training session has been invaluable. Your expertise and your patience are exemplary. It cannot be easy to teach a 75 year old new tricks but you have done so with the utmost understanding. The software is extraordinarily powerful: you have explained how to use it in simple and understandable terms.
