“This is an excellent product, very easy to use, easy to buy and great value for money in saved time. You do not need to be an excel expert to use it, the automation of entry does it all for you. I recently showed the website to clients to help with their project planning. They were very pleased and will be adopting it through the company. I needed to contact support to help with a query; their response was quick, efficient and very helpful. Excellent service and great product, I thoroughly recommend Gantt Excel.”

T. Dulieu

“This saved a lot of time for me. Having to update a schedule in project, then copy to excel was very time consuming and didn’t allow real time changes in my meetings. Having this done in excel allows me to customize my schedule just like project while adding additional tabs for other information. I’ve received nothing but positive feedback from my pears. Well worth the investment and has paid for itself. ”

AL, United States

“I am a new at using Gantt software. So I was very impressed with the speed and thoroughness of their customer service when I had basic questions on how to use the software. They were very thorough in their responses, which made it very easy for me to use. I have purchased similar software before but found them difficult to use and there was no customer service support at all. This is a great product, at a tremendous price, with service you can count on. I have recommended this product to numerous people in my field and will continue to do so.”
