KnowWare International, Inc., makers of the QI Macros, is pleased to offer educational institutions complimentary copies of its Microsoft Excel Add-In, EZ Chart Basic.
The idea behind this easy-to-use charting tool came from a conversation with a customer who had downloaded and enjoyed the QI Macros trial, but only needed the Excel charts. When asked why he preferred the QI Macros version over and above the standard charts in Excel, he said, “They just look better and I don’t have to clean them up before I present them.”
While Excel creates charts fairly easily, they often require significant editing before use in a presentation. Standard Excel charts have too much of what Edward Tufte, author of, The Visual Display of Quantitative Information, calls “Chart Junk” – unnecessary shaded areas, gridlines, legends, and missing titles which have to be corrected before use in a presentation.
To overcome these limitations in Excel, EZ Chart simplifies and streamlines the entire process. It creates the same charts as Excel, but without all of the “Chart Junk.” This will save the user time, while accelerating their analysis.
The software can be utilized by virtually anyone with computer experience:
- It’s easy to learn: The menu gives immediate access to all Excel charts.
- Works directly on Excel data: More than 90% of the world’s offices use Excel. Just select your data and draw a chart - it’s that simple.
- Compatible with Excel 2000-2013 for PC, and 2004 and 2011 for Mac, along with Windows 7 and 8, Vista, XP, and OSX operating systems.
