"You can be looking at statistical analyses less than a minute after importing your data." —MacFormat Magazine (UK)
It's true: within minutes of importing your first data set into Wizard, you'll be generating graphics, uncovering correlations, producing p-values, building models, and sharing insights with colleagues. Most customers find that the program pays for itself in just a few days of use. Explore Wizard's delightful feature set, including...
Wizard will start graphing your data as soon as you click on it. It uses native Mac graphics to give you crisp visual summaries — box-plots, scatterplots, histograms, survival curves, and more — in a fraction of a second.
EASY STATISTICAL MODELING
Build sophisticated statistical models in seconds with Wizard's intuitive modeling interface. Regression estimates are instantly recomputed as you play around with the controls and experiment with new specifications.
Wizard supports drag-and-drop, multi-level Undo, and other interface conveniences that Mac users expect from their software. An interactive tutorial will help you get started.
Dozens of functions are available to help you get data into the form you want. Compute quantiles, perform day-of-week calculations, multiply columns together, and more.
Export colorful graphics as web-friendly PNG or print-quality PDF. If you're surrounded by PC users, export your models as interactive spreadsheets that can be used to run "What if?" scenarios in any version of Microsoft Excel.

New in Wizard 1.9:
From Santa's workshop comes Wizard Pro 1.9, an overflowing stocking of new features and functionality. If you thought that Wizard could already do everything when it comes to data transformation and analysis, YOU WERE WRONG. In the biggest release since last year's sleeper hit Wizard Pro 1.8, Wizard Pro 1.9 brings you...
* COLLAPSIBLE FILTERS -- Make the most of screen real estate with the new Pin button -- when activated, it keeps filters applied even when you close the Filters pane.
* DATES, DATES, DATES -- Import dates in your favorite format, format your dates with four exciting date templates, analyze dates with down-to-the-second precision, partition date/time data with greater flexibility, and create Timestamp columns using the number of seconds from a particular start date.
* FILE SIZE FORMATTING -- Does your data set include a file size measured in bytes? Now you can format it with easy-to-read units (KB, MB, GB, etc). There's even an option to switch between the decimal convention (1,000 bytes per kilobyte) and the binary convention (1,024 bytes per kilobyte).
* NEW PIVOT FUNCTIONS -- Standard Error of the Mean and 95% Confidence Interval, now available for your pivoting pleasure.

Ratings and Reviews
Outstanding software and Outstanding support!
I've only been using this software for a couple of weeks now but have found it to be very intuitive and user friendly. I am not a power user of pivot tables, so I have avoided them for years. With Wizard Pro it does all of the heavy lifting for me and makes pivot tables and statistical analysis a breeze. The introductory walkthrough was above excellent, and put to rest a number of my apprehensions about the using the software. I am not statistician by any stretch of the imaganintion, but this software makes me one!!
When I first installed the software I ran into an issue of older XLS files causing the program to crash. I sent a crash report to the developer and literally within an hour I received a reply letting me know they were working on solution. Within a few hours of the initial contact I had a solution sent to me, and was up and running! This version 1.2.1 has the XLS problem resolved in it, so it's clear sailing for me now! I have NEVER had a developer respond so quickly and take ownership of a problem and resolve it like Evan Miller did. Kudos to the development team!
Excellent program for data review/what if questions
I can only support the many positives already stated for this software. What you quickly learn is that while other software can do the graphical displays, there is a lot of behind the scenes calculations being done and ready at the click of a mouse for easy viewing. This saves a lot of “steps” in reviewing/processing data. Many features of true GUI are also an inherent part of the software. In combination with data filters, you can use the click/Shift key combination we all use in Mac OS to look at subsets of data on the fly. The other aspect that needs mentioning is that the software is “fast”, which really impressed my PC users who program in R. My exerience has been in using Wizard Pro. If you don’t need the extra import capabilities, then Wizard should serve the needs of most users who store/process data in EXCEL. I personally feel the software is very reasonably priced given the current range of costs of simple data graphing programs all the way up to annual contracts for programs like JMP on the Mac OS platform.
Engineer and Marketer’s Best Friend
This is the tool you need if you have to estimate causal factors or model a competitor’s pricing and you don’t have 3 weeks to get up to speed on how to use R. The tool provides easy to use data entry, let’s you choose your factors, and do the curve fitting you’d like to do very quickly. A huge feature is the interactive tutorial that walks you through an example that is probably not too different from just what you need to do for your 3PM meeting with the boss. No BS, just right to the numbers. If you can’t get this to work for you, it’s time to change your clothes and start throwing trash for a living.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
