Pros: You don't have to worry about double checking formulas on a spreadsheet. You get all the reports you want in seconds. Customer support is great.

Cons: I don't like the fact that the cash allowance appears on the overall status log along with the approved cash allowance draws which makes confusing the report as the total amount will not add up if done manually.

Overall: Easy construction administration.

Excellent System

Pros: I like the ease of setting up new projects. I like the great reports that I can generate with this system, and I also like the fact that I can customize the reports so easily. I like the way that you can take a site instruction and turn it into a change order if needed. This is a very user friendly program and we are completely satisfied with it.

Cons: The only thing that I have issue with is the fact that I can't print reports by reason like the old Stats 4, but this is not a major issue.

Overall: Faster and easier to use than Statslog 4.

I've been using Statslog for 25 years . Would not use anything else for contract admin.

Pros: The program saves us a lot of time. It has been developed for the contract admin purpose, and it serves it well. The one program allows to do the entire contract admin with cross referencing and filing of all documents in one place. We can customize the forms and tune the program to our needs. Clarity and efficiency of it also helps our image; it impresses the clients.

Cons: Originally we thought that having to learn few things before using the program effectively is added trouble. Expectation of ready to use, easy no effort procedure are quite common. However investing some time and/or training pays off handsomely.

Overall: Saves a lot of time and money, cost is negligible compared to the increased efficiency.
Contract admin response time and efficiency impresses contractors and clients.
Filing system is well organized, all aspects of the contract admin process are coordinated and cross referenced.
It allows to build customized forms, attach documents and pictures with ease.

All the contract admin for a project in one place. It gives me control of the project.

Pros: Elimination of redundancy. Reports, descriptions dates and documents are all logged in one place. It has rules that keeps us from over-certifying payment. It eliminates calculation errors and all the forms are customizable to different project requirements.

Cons: The way that contact list functions is problematic. Importing or entering contacts is tedious even though it has to be done only once at the beginning of the project. In order to use this software, you have to know how to administer a contract.

Overall: We used use a word processor and spreadsheets for contract administration and nothing was linked. With Statslog, everything is connected within a database. It eliminates entry error, it generates reports, forms and eliminates mathematical errors in contract amount calculations, it tracks authorizations for changes and helps to limit our liability.

An excellent tool for administration of architectural projects: draws, changes, instructions.

Pros: Ability to track the schedule of values, contract advances, changes, holdbacks, and allowances. Forms are easily customized, and ready to use at each step of the project. Summary forms are also easily generated, allowing an overview of the status of the project at each draw.

Cons: Contractors often invent new formats for schedules of values, extras, credits, changes and related information. Statslog follows a set of strict rules (which help prevent errors) and modifications to these rules requires intervention by Statslog.

Overall: Numerous potential errors have been circumvented by the use of Statslog. The program limits the manner in which data is entered or changed to conform to industry standards and flags improper or incorrect data.
