Comprehensive Checklist

A Comprehensive Checklist that reduces accidental omissions by making sure you remember everything.  One pass through the Checklist writes the Contract, the Draw Schedule, the Allowance Schedule, and the Warranty.  Some programs brag that they don't have a checklist, but their "random hit" strategy is sure to lead to mistakes by omission.
