UpSlide vs. Macabacus

What to consider before choosing a productivity tool

The type of work you do

If your teams work across the entire Microsoft Office suite, you’ll need a solution that integrates into all Microsoft applications, not just a few. UpSlide offers 65+ features in Excel, PowerPoint, Word, Power BI and Outlook to streamline teams’ workflows.

The support you’ll need

Will you need support with change management, onboarding and adoption? Can you guarantee any query will be resolved swiftly and appropriately? Adopting a new solution is only beneficial if your teams are confident using it.


UpSlide has a wide team of global, in-house experts and resources to support you every step of the way:

  • Change and project management team to plan and execute even the most complex implementation and deployment projects
  • Support team to provide technical assistance to you and your users; 80% of tickets are responded to in under an hour
  • Ongoing support and usage reviews to monitor and identity opportunities to boost adoption and ROI

The budget available

Are you prioritizing cheaper initial costs over long-term ROI and value from your software investment? If it’s the former – UpSlide might not be for you!


We’re a premium solution with advanced features and support, and our pricing reflects that. Our licenses are designed for teams from as small as five to upwards of 10,000, with different packages and volume discounts to suit your needs.

  • UpSlide provided tailored training, an array of onboarding materials, and how-to articles to ensure we felt comfortable using the software from day one. It’s perfectly ingrained into our workflows; we can’t imagine life without it!
