Statslog has been providing construction contract admin software solutions for over 35 years. We invented the category back when the only option was pen and paper. Check out the Statslog story so far, then start writing your own chapter!(more…)
What do 3 of the world’s top 5 revenue earning architectural firms have in common? They use FIVE by StatsLog for their construction contract administration!(more…)
This year, StatsLog enters its 35th year of uninterrupted use in Canada’s architectural community. Over this time, we have witnessed incredible changes in technology and business practices.
What we started back in 1984 as a relatively modest replacement to “pen and paper” approaches to tracking changes to construction contracts, is now an enterprise-ready, highly customizable solution for the contract administration and documentation needs of construction projects of all shapes and sizes. In fact, over the past few years we’ve seen the usage of our software increase dramatically – from $3.5 billion in active projects in 2016 to $9.2 billion today.(more…)
Collaboration is being pitched as an approach to integrate the diverse, and often divergent demands of a project team into a single vision. It’s a commendable goal, but most of software solutions that claim to help are centralized systems under the control and management of the developer or contractor.

I just completed the week long, intensive Construction Contract Administration (CCA) course put on by Construction Specifications Canada (CSC) in Toronto. Largely due to the dynamic personality of instructor Ted Katsoris it was more fun than I expected!

We’ve just wrapped up a recent push to improve the performance of some key areas of FIVE, and you may have noticed that the software has been getting snappier lately. Whether it’s startup time, the time it takes to generate PDF files, or the time navigate your projects, we’ve been hacking away at the seconds. In fact, we’ve spent dozens of hours on these improvements lately.
