Connecting Gurobi and Frontline Solvers

The power of Gurobi inside and outside of Excel

Frontline Solvers Now the same Gurobi license can be used both inside of Excel via Frontline's Platform-level solver products and outside of Excel in any of Gurobi's supported programming languages.


For Existing Frontline Solver Users...

If you already have Premium Solver Platform, Risk Solver Platform or Analytics Solver Platform with a license for the plug-in LP/QP/MIP Gurobi engine, you may purchase an add-on from us, at a fraction of the cost of the full Gurobi Optimizer, that includes an updated license allowing you to use Gurobi Optimizer as a stand-alone solver. You get all the power, features, and flexibility of Gurobi outside of Excel, without giving up anything you have today, and without having to buy a full stand-alone Gurobi license.

If you currently own Premium Solver Platform, Risk Solver Platform or Analytics Solver Platform, but don't own a Gurobi license, just by purchasing one Gurobi license and a connector from us, you'll be able to use Gurobi from either one of those products, or as a stand-alone optimizer.


For Existing Gurobi Optimizer Users...

If you already have a license for Gurobi Optimizer you can purchase Premium Solver Platform or Risk Solver Platform and a connector from us which will allow you to also use Gurobi from within Excel without having to buy an additional Gurobi license.
