Statgraphics user community forum launched

Share this on social media:

StatPoint Technologies, the developer of the Statgraphics line of statistical tools, has announced the launch of a free Statgraphics user community forum. This new online resource enables current and potential users of the statistical software to directly interact with each other, the software developers, and the worldwide network of international resellers who support Statgraphics in their regions.

‘Our goal is to build a community of Statgraphics users who can help one another and contribute to the ongoing evolution of the software,’ according to StatPoint Technologies president Caroline Chopek. ‘We invite everyone to join the forum and share your thoughts, suggestions, and some of the creative and innovative uses you have found for Statgraphics.' Commenting on the current business environment, she continued, ‘In challenging times, it is especially important to identify and exploit every opportunity for savings, quality improvement and driving efficiencies.

‘Changing business models, cautious customers and continuously shifting budgets make it more important than ever for companies and organisations to accurately forecast cash flows and determine where to devote precious time and resources. They need guidance to reach the correct decisions.  Statistics provide insight and analysis of data is crucial to all such efforts. Statgraphics offers advanced functionality but with an interface that does not require a Master’s degree to navigate and understand so that anyone can benefit from statistical data analysis,’ Chopek added.

Among the topics the community will explore is the Six Sigma for the Rest of Us concept. It offers an incremental approach to creating a Six Sigma program that should work for any organisation. The forum is fully moderated to ensure a professional and spam-free environment.
