We’re really happy with Navicat and only wish that we’d chosen the product sooner.”

Without this ability we would be weeks behind schedule.”

A GUI interface that provides complete functionality for configuring and using MySQL. What might take hours with the command line, Navicat can accomplish in seconds.”

“Navicat is very important for us to manage our MySQL databases. It is quite easy to use and has very powerful features as, for instance, the query builder. The features we use most are the backup and queries, also in relation with the scheduler. A nice-to-have feature would be a mailer function where, for instance, a result of a query could be sent to a specific user.”

“Navicat really helped easily get my excel data into mysql, and Navicat makes it easy to maintain using a GUI, rather than the line commands, or tedium of phpMyAdmin for multiple edits.
I am sure Navicat will have more to offer, as my database matures. I can't comment on the documentation, because I've been able to figure out the few things I need to do just from the menus and icons on screen.”
