Bolt Subcontractor Software


 

Bolt is an integrated cloud-based solution for small to large subcontractors in the construction industry. The software assists users with takeoff, scheduling, project management, and service management. The solution removes paperwork by using mobile access tools that allow real time editing of job changes, and the document management system that stores job-related files in the cloud.

Crew’s schedules can be created online, allowing them access to daily tasks and job documents on their iPad. The Service Management tool provides job scheduling, job status tracking, dispatching, and work orders. Builder system integration downloads work orders directly from the builder that saves data entry time and prevents errors. QuickBooks integration gives users the ability to create invoices straight from Bolt.

Bolt supports residential and commercial subcontractors who work in a variety of specialties including concrete, electrical, landscaping, plumbing, roofing, HVAC, cabinetry, and finishing contractors. The software can be accessed on Mac or PC with an internet connection, including iPad and Android.

N/A

Bolt did 2 separate demo's for our company. I feel like there's a lot of potential with Bolt. However, our company was mainly looking for an online scheduling software that we could use to schedule our crews for work. We wanted it to be easy to use and highly functional. Just based on the appearance and basic functionality of Bolt, this was not the product we were looking for. Bolt offers a solid amount of options and tools, but again, many of those we would not even use. I think Bolt would be a great product for the right company; unfortunately, it is just not what we were looking for.

Pros

The software is very user friendly, set up and maintenance is easy. Accurate to industry and defaults are extremely accurate to real operations.

Cons

Possibly more customer branding capabilities rather than BOLT branding. APP button to be changed to customer branding.

ability to understand and adapt to our business process and easily adapt to our flow of production needed

Cons

don't like that you can only make changes to processing in the scheduling page. It would be better if one main page controlled everything for the job. However, i am still very new to the software, so I may not be the best judge yet

Before implementing Bolt many of our scheduling tasks were completed by individual employees. Now we have a centralized way of researching data instead of having to go to individual employees. I love the forecast & report features. It is very helpful to see upcoming work volume via calendar view. I find it very helpful you can drag and drop documents & pictures attached to a particular job. Bolt is a helpful scheduling software tool both in the office and out in the field via its mobile capabilities.

Pros

Forecast, Report, Mobile Capabilities, Calendar view, multiple user access and drag & drop documents & pictures

Cons

inability to change color template

As a purchasing agent, there very little advantage to the software. Calendar is what I use he most,but not much advantage to the calendar on Outlook, except i can let the installers know the material is ready, but they can see that in the warehouse.

Pros

Nice for scheduling and capability of getting feedback from employees.

So far I have liked working with this program for our scheduling purposes. Out of everyone in the office, I am the one that uses it the most, since I am the one that schedules all of our new job starts for the company, and has been very easy for me.

This product has helped track and streamline a fair amount of our scheduling of jobs.
I was placed in charge of the programs setup and roll out and once I learned the software, the options and customizability are pretty incredible.
BOLT has helped us and the program to adapt to each other but the system is still fairly linear and definitely has room to improve.
At times it can be difficult to reach customer support (our account manager) but they do get back to you after a time.

Pros

Automates some of our processes.

Cons

VERY buggy. iPads crash frequently and any time we make admin changes in the system, the system has a fairly large mishap of some kind.

Advice to Others

BOLT needs to develop a customer service team dedicated to customers calling in with issues for a faster response. I have called our account rep. and never had a return call. Usually, if he does it'll be a text at the end of the day stating that he'll reach me tomorrow.
It feels like I have to follow up with him most of the time.
