OUR COMPANY – What we do

Ribbon Commander was created by Excel developers with international work experience in an effort to push the boundary of what can be achieved with Microsoft Office. Our goal is to help Microsoft users become more productive.

Our innovative Ribbon Commander framework aims to simplify and extend Microsoft's modern UI interface: the Ribbon. Users can learn usable Office applications faster and rely less on support.

Our Ribbon Commander Browser offers uncomplicated access to a large number of essential Office desktop Add-ins. The ease with which these mostly free Add-ins can be updated and managed is unprecedented.

Ribbon Commander is supported by ILYDA S.A., a leading software house in Greece established more than 20 years ago, with significant expertise in Microsoft technologies.
