Decision Lens is online decision-making software that is based on multi-criteria decision making.

Decision Lens implements the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP)[1] and the Analytic Network Process (ANP)[2] and is used in fields such as energy,[3] medical research[4] and group decision-making.[5][6]

The software is supplied by Decision Lens Inc., which was founded in 2002 by John and Dan Saaty.[7]
