SmartPLS is one of the leading software tools for partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM).
Joe F. Hair, DBA Founder, Senior Scholar, and Professor, Kennesaw State University, USA.
With more than 2,500 citations in academic publications, SmartPLS is one of the leading software tools for partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). Researcher and practitioners enjoy the success of using the PLS-SEM method’s capabilities for their projects by running our intuitive and easy-to-use software.
SmartPLS is endorsed by the authors of the book on PLS-SEM
"A Primer on Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM)"
Be smart, join now and enjoy the success of using SmartPLS!
The intuitive graphical user interface lets your create pretty path models with SmartPLS in minutes.
Do you want to stay on top of your files? Our Project Explorer helps you organizing your data and models efficiently in separate projects. You can easily export, import and archive your projects when using SmartPLS.
You find all information that you need to assess the outcomes and to competently write-up your paper in the SmartPLS results reports. They are well-organized and provide a good orientation. You can export all results to Excel, HTML or R.
SmartPLS offers a rich portfolio of analyses and reports. But don´t worry! Each algorithm is explained by our built-in documentation. Our default algorithm settings represent the best choice for most computations. Start right away, save a lot of time and focus on the results of your analysis!

I have a long background in technology IT (product management and engineering) and I¹ve developed applications for many years. I think that SmartPLS 3 is the nicest SEM product on the market, today, and I definitely prefer using it
instead of rather antiquated tools like AMOS and MPLUS.
Lori D. Kendall, Ph.D. Student in Management, Case Western Reserve University
I recommend SmartPLS to my students, and one of my graduate student is preparing his Ph.D. thesis with SmartPLS program. He is very happy to solve the difficulty of dealing with hard data for his analysis.
DaeShik Park, Professor, Chungnam National University, Korea
PLS-SEM is a key multivariate analysis method for researchers and scholars. SmartPLS 3 gives easy access to the method. I profited in my research and Ph.D. theses from the intuitive ways to draw models and to easily get the outputs
with graphics for many useful analyses.
Julen Castillo Apraiz, Ph.D. Researcher, University of the Basque Country, Spain
Having become familiar with PLS, and especially the SmartPLS tool, I have applied the technique to the Metlife Customer Satisfaction Survey data across multiple markets. The results are very useful and, thanks to SmartPLS, very easy

Covariance-based approach limits lead us to use the variance based approach and smartpls software. Many studies done in this area. for expanding this approach among researchers with Persian language we written a book with
collaboration my friends. It seems that this approach will soon become an integral part of most analysts, especially in the realm of social sciences. The new version of the software is more comprehensive, and especially at the CTA
has attracted many comments. This software can help researchers to comprehensive understanding of develop and evaluate of the measurement and structural models.
Rasoul Gholamzadeh, Faculty Member of Payam Noor University, Iran
PLS-SEM showed a very encouraging development in the last decade. The method has a place in the heart of the researchers. Today, SmartPLS is the most popular software to use the PLS-SEM method. The SmartPLS team of developers has
been working hard to release SmartPLS 3. After seeing and using the latest version of the software, I say it is ABC, amazing, beautiful, and complete.
Hengky Latan, Independent Researcher at University of Pattimura, Indonesia
I have used successfully used SmartPLS for my PhD research in which a pretty complex model has been investigated. I have been working with different software and I have found the SmartPLS software very easy to use. However, this has
not restricted the potential power of the software that has allowed me to analyse the direct and indirect effects within my model. I strongly recommend SmartPLS to scholars should they be searching for partial least square software.
Masih Fadaki, PhD (Supply Chain Management, RMIT University), Category Manager (University of Melbourne), Melbourne, Australia
SmartPLS 3 is becoming the state of the art PLS-SEM software. Packed with useful features and easy to use interface it enables me to be more focused on research rather than the tool employed. It comes with a fair price model,
securing future development and support. With both a Windows and OSX version, SmartPLS 3 is a winner!

SmartPLS Student does not require a specific license nor any kind of registration. Just download the latest release and choose the Student option in the initial license dialog.
SmartPLS Professional requires license keys you can purchase online. We provide single user licenses as well as network licenes for concurrent use. All licenses are time-based depending on your purchase.
It depends on your type of your license. If you are using the Student version or purchased a single user license for SmartPLS Professional, you can use the software without beeing connected to the internet. If you are using a network license you need to be connected to the internet or to your companies network.
Yes! You can up- or downgrade from SmartPLS Student to SmartPLS Professional and vice versa or use different Professional licenses. Your data and PLS models will remain intact and can be opened no matter which license you choose.
Yes. We can provide single user licenses that allow for multiple activations (multi-key). We also provide network licenes for concurrent use - the necessary licensing server may be either hosted by us or within your organizations computer network.
Yes. We will refund any payment made within the last thirty days if you are unsatisfied for any reason.
We do our level best to answer all support requests within 24 hours. All questions are answered by our in-house support team and lead engineer. (Your business is too important to trust to a call center.)
Of course! But you need to pay the full price for all SmartPLS licenses used with your course and may not claim the academical discount of 50%.
