Check out this video to find out about our approach to stat keeping and how we’re different from other similar companies out there.

Very. This system was built to be a simple way of storing and graphing statistics. However, it’s also quite comprehensive, and can handle the needs of users requiring more complex and advanced needs as well. Simply put, it’s as easy as you want it to be.

We’re currently putting together a help forum with more technical frequently asked questions, user submissions, tutorial videos, etc. This is a fully searchable database. This forum can be accessed here. If there’s something you have a question about, or need help with, you can send us a message.

Also, users can use the feedback link in the top right of the screen when logged in to ask questions, make suggestions and submit bugs.

You sure can. We have an upload screen where you can upload files of the following formats on your own:

  • .xls (Excel ’97-’03)
  • .xlsx (Excel 2007 & 2010)
  • .txt (tab-delimited)
  • .csv (comma-delimited)

Of course that means you would have to be able to export your statistics from the other system in one of those formats. For most, that shouldn’t be a problem. The optional data conversion fee will cover assistance with any of the above approved formats. But don’t worry! If your data is in a different format, just let us know and we can figure out a custom quote to handle your conversion. We’ve yet to find a system that we weren’t able to import from, and we sure do like a challenge.

The free trial starts you off with a “Standard” account. It’s free for 30 days, so this lets you see what’s in there. If you are sure you want a bigger or smaller account, just click on over to the “Money and Such” page and change your plan there and your plan will be updated. No mess, no fuss.

Don’t let the price tag fool you! UseMyStats is easy to use, but it’s definitely not “limited” or “too simple”. Sometimes people have a hard time with our low prices because “it doesn’t cost enough to be awesome”, but we figure that that idea will go away as soon as people sign up and start using it.

Our purpose is to help people better manage themselves and their businesses with statistics. So while we of course need some money to eat and keep the lights on, we want UseMyStats to be as affordable as possible for EVERYONE, not just those with larger software budgets. That’s why we keep our prices low and why we even have a free level to help people get started.
