Strata is good helper

The functionality and decent performance of the product is complemented by the excellent support of the Cotopaxi team. Strata helps to manage energy and other resources and improve or at least maintain the efficiency of their use.

Pros

Strata offers nice and easy to learn user interface you like at the first sight. It provides quick access to all your data through transparent organizational structure and set of dashboards. Creation of wide variety of reports is really super easy. The system was always stable and had short response time even in case of bigger volume of data. It is constantly evolving, new functions are being added.

Cons

Strata, in order to be fast and simple, sometimes doesnt provide the level of flexibility you may need to cover all possible cases you may face in practice. So far, however, we have always managed to find a satisfactory solution in cooperation with Cotopaxi developers. It is still a search for a compromise between the complexity of the system and its maintenance and its flexibility.

Reasons for Choosing Strata

It brings the best cost benefit ratio. The product is under continuous development. The Cotopaxi team provides reliable support and is flexible in solution of non-standard requirements. It supports all languages we need.

Reasons for Switching to Strata

End of product development
