Quantrix is a spreadsheet program modeled after the pioneering Lotus Improv, and introduced by Lighthouse Design for NeXTSTEP and OPENSTEP in the early '90s when Lotus stopped selling Improv. Like Improv, Quantrix has been adopted primarily by the financial industry, where its ability to manipulate various “categories” or "dimensions" makes it easy to view forecasts, budgets, risk analysis, financial projections and all types of complex data modeling.
The first version of Quantrix on the NeXT/OPENSTEP platform was discontinued when Lighthouse Design was acquired by Sun Microsystems in 1996. Peter Murray, founder and CTO of Quantrix led the Lighthouse Quantrix development team at the time, but did not go to Sun. He decided in early 2002 to rejuvenate the concept from scratch with modern day technologies, which is when the current Quantrix (Modeler) began to take shape.
