A reserve fund study is a report that assists condo corporations in understanding what they own, how much money they have, the timing of potential replacements, future costs, and, ultimately, how to pay for the replacements when they are due. CubeDrive helps the condominium manager translate their reserve fund study from MS Excel to online application with ease.

Existing Excel problem

In general, the reserve fund study is prepared by the engineer. Engineers will utilize a Reserve Fund Study template, frequently a complex Excel spreadsheet with many algorithms. Engineers will input data and supplement this document with a detailed narrative that analyses and reports the building’s condition.

Here comes some issues for the existing Excel solution:

  • Multiple engineers can not enter data at the same time.
  • Customers can not access the data from any device, anytime, anywhere.
  • Change the Excel template will involve in lots of update work.
  • Can not set the fine grained control for the data access.
  • Not time and cost effectively.
