It has advanced statistical procedures such as nonparametric statistics, ANOVA (Analysis of Variance), logistic regression (conditional and unconditional) and so on. It also includes a Visual Dashboard module that is also used for analyzing data but does not contain all data management and statistical commands found in the Classic Analysis module.

It features a Report module that is used for modifying and formatting output from the software tools and modules. It has a menu module that allows users to restructure the software’s menu.
