Zebra BI for Office

Zebra BI for Office is the #1 data visualization tool for Excel and PowerPoint, empowering business professionals to transform complex data into clear and actionable insights. Create stunning reports that meet IBCS® standards out-of-the-box and drive better decision-making.


At Zebra BI, we believe every report should answer key business questions: How well are we doing? Where should we focus our attention? Which action should we take? 

Based on feedback from the world’s leading companies like Coca-Cola, Bayer, PwC, and other 2,800+ customers that trust us with their decision-making, we developed MS Excel and MS PowerPoint add-ins that make it possible to create best-practice reports in seconds.
