Support

At Spider Financial, we understand that support services are a critical component of any software package. With this in mind, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality support, backed by a responsive, knowledgeable in-house support team: no faceless, offshore support entity, and NO pre-recorded scripts.

We offer a full spectrum of customer assistance services. For a start, customers can visit our help center to access the online knowledge base, report, and track support issues. For time-sensitive support matters, customers can directly reach our highly knowledgeable, experienced support personnel via phone between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Central Time to address any of their needs.

Also, our customers enjoy a wide range of documentation supporting the usage of our products. We offer two customized service packages that fit each organization’s size, needs, and budget: (1) Standard and (2) Premier Support.

  • For customers with a NumXL 365 (monthly) license, Premier Support is offered for one month and is automatically renewed when their software license is renewed at no additional cost.
  • For customers with an annual license, Premier Support is automatically renewed when their software license is renewed at no additional cost.
  • For customers with a perpetual license, Premier Support expires after one year and cannot be renewed. The user is then switched to the Standard Support level.

The best support I have encountered in 40 years in the business. An excel spreadsheet in the hands of Mohamad is akin to a violin being played by Jascha Heifetz!

I highly recommend NumXL to anyone looking to perform statistical analysis within Excel. The tutorials, examples, and customer support are a real bonus, and the Spider Financial Corp. team is responsive and knowledgeable. The array of functions included with NumXL is quite diverse, and the software has performed flawlessly. NumXL is an excellent software.

Superb! Not only is the software leading edge, but our interactions with NumXL staff have been excellent. We have been lucky enough to work with the owner, Mohamad, who not only has advised us about how to use their product most efficiently but has also helped us integrate NumXL into our VBA scripts! I'd rather deal with people I can speak to and build a strong working relationship than being a number to a large multi-national.

  1. You entered an incorrect license key. Please check the license key carefully and try again.
  2. You have entered (i.e., pasted) the activation code incorrectly. Please check the letter and digit sequence carefully and try again.
