The solution includes a set of specially tailored functions such as

R Integrations, package installer

Statistical coach

OLSPS Analytics, formerly SPSS-SA, was the legacy provider of SPSS in South Africa from 2001 until IBM acquired SPSS Inc in 2009. As such, OLSPS Analytics has many years of expertise and experience working with the SPSS Software suite, which translates into a very strong technical support team.

With years of experience, key value-added features and provision of industry-leading support and training, it is clear why OLSPS Analytics offer a unique value-added SPSS solution for the leading educational institutions across the region.

To make SPSS more user-friendly, OLSPS Analytics is making headway with the development of a state of the art report generator. This value-add feature looks at a user's analysis and returns an easy to read interpretation of the results. The report is structured with a gentle introduction to the statistical analyses implemented by the user, followed by an in-depth discussion of the results. It is without doubt the most useful feature within SPSS to date. By the end of the year every academic user will have his "Statistical Consultant" at the click of a button, thanks to OLSPS Analytics.

As part of the solution OLSPS Analytics also offers the following benefits:

• Comprehensive prices for educational institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa
• Free onsite group training sessions*
• Unparalleled expertise in delivering a comprehensive suite of training packages, ranging from first-time users to advanced statistical practitioners – including fields such as repetitive analysis, summary statistics, survey-based research and a diverse range of additional topics
• Statistical and technical support provided by a highly-qualified and experienced team

As the number of statistical software platforms increase, SPSS is still the first choice for most universities in Africa and around the world. This is because SPSS is easy to use for beginners, whilst still offers a range of complex functions for more advanced users. For novice users, the software offers quick and easy deployment without the need for advanced coding knowledge, allowing them to focus on the statistical analysis resulting from the built-in functionality. And thanks to OLSPS Analytics, as the user becomes more advanced the software offers more advanced options where the user can build his or her own statistical models using SPSS syntax or R.

OLSPS Analytics have offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa, but is in the process of developing a network of partners throughout Africa, having already established a presence in both Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The OLSPS team has ample experience in working abroad and is willing to travel to African educational institutions to assist with the implementation of and training in IBM SPSS software.
