Stat*illac Review

About Stat*illac:
Statillac is all about being as user friendly as possible. Statillac’s founding was the result of Statillac’s founder and CEO, Dustin Thompson, not being able to find any user-friendly stats software to record game stats. After creating his own system to take stats with, he wanted to share what he had created with other stats coaches so they would not have to go through the same experience.

- Founded by Dustin Thompson, a sports statistician, in 2008
- Headquartered in Charlotte, NC

Statillac’s softball stats software makes taking stats a heck of a lot easier. You do not have to be a stats guru to use this software. In fact, you only have to have basic knowledge of softball. This software captures game stats in the easiest manner possible. This softball stat software has an interactive tutorial that will actually walk you through on how to take stats and use all the features. It generates detailed game and season reports, and it can export your reports to PDF.

Statillac software is the best way you can take stats. Stats sheets are time and paper intensive. You first have to learn all about how to take softball stats, which is something you don’t have to do when using Statillac’s software. Second, you have to sum all the stats after the game is over, which is the last thing you want to do after staring at little marks on a grid the entire game. With our software, it’s just a matter of clicking a button to view the stats report and it’s just as easy to make a season report. Third, stat sheets are a pain to use due to the fact that there are places all over the sheet you have to mark and that clutter makes it hard on your eyes. On the other hand, our softball software has a simple to use interface that doesn’t boggle your mind with too much clutter. We promise that you will like our design efforts to make a stat software that’s super easy to use.  We also have great baseball stat software that you can use.
  • You will not find another software or stats sheet that’s easier to use than Statillac’s softball stats software
  • Statillac takes all the hard work out of taking stats
  • Detailed game and season reports, exportable to PDF

My Thoughts:
As someone who has sat through more than her share of baseball and softball games I learned to do Stats because it helped me to keep things interesting (I mean it was little league). Because I know I will sit through many more games between my 3 siblings that still play and my 3 children who are just learning what a glove is (when B first tried one on he was afraid it would eat his hand, but that's another story), I was excited to try this new way of keeping stats.
I loved this program and can see it working wonderfully for any coach (or mom) who wants to keep track of their children's teams. It kept all the information and yet was easy enough to use that I believe you could easily keep up with a baseball or softball game while entering. My only concern is if your computer battery would last long enough during tournaments, I know you can sometimes sit through 4 or 5 games a day if you have more than one team/child playing. I would love to know if this worked on a high tech phone, I can't try it because I don't have one.

The other thing these programs would be great for is for those trying to teach the game to individuals who have never been introduced. Because of the simplicity it would be easy for someone to use that is just learning the rules.

This would be a great Father's Day gift for any dad who coaches, or just loves to watch his kids play. The good news is that you can order it now because all it takes is a quick download for your computer.

Thanks for reading! Make sure you visit Stat*illac today!
