Rich feature list with a great price point, excellent support and seamless integration with our LOB applications from 1st class developers! Migration of data from our current systems to Builderstorm were handled with ease and the interface is intuitive and easy on the eye!

Please see what do you like best, there is no "Like Least", if there was i am confident that it would be resolved to my satisfaction within a specified timescale!

Recommendations

If you want to work from any device, at any location and collaborate with the rest of your team, company, branch office, customers, sub-contractors and need to control these elements then try Builderstorm! Other "File Sharing" sites do not give this level of functionality, consider your revisions on documents, drawings and other critical documents.....do you have a revision audit trail? Do you need to capture photos for distribution, complete a daily diary or submit timesheets for your team who can be on different projects daily? Do you have defects to report, RFI's or Plant to record? Do you really want to store these on local storage based in your offices & have to open up your private network to the rest of the Internet to provide access? Consider the costs associated with procuring Servers (CAPEX), licences for Operating Systems (Opex) and of course making these available in a Disaster......with Builderstorm being based in the Cloud you don't have to consider these anymore!

The customer support is the best. Emails replied to in minutes, someone on the phone. They are keen to adapt the software to the way I want it to work and this is a huge bonus.

They are still developing the software, so some of things I want are not ready yet, but they are adding those soon. The price will not change so thats a bonus.

Recommendations

Take advantage and try all the features, some of the features appeared to be of no use to me, have turned out to be very effective and valuable.

The software does everything we need. We are a small scaffolding company and need remote daily diaries, timesheets and document/drawing management. We also use the training register to keep track of the guys tickets, and the expiry dates. The customer support is fantastic, they are quick to respond when I have an issue or need something changing. They also adjusted the software to suit our methods for no extra cost.

Likes Least

Initally the software was quite overwhelming, lots of the elements were of no use to me, which can make things quite confusing. But I talked it through with James and got the things I didn't need turned off. It was much more straight forward then.

Recommendations

Make sure you ask for exactly what you want. At first the training register didnt quite work how I wanted it to, but after speaking with the guys at BuilderStorm they changed it to work exactly how I should.

1. Project Management- you can upload as many projects as you want onto the software, the old ones can be archived so they don't have to be deleted.

2.Text Sms Service- you can send out bulk texts to a large amount of people for job advertising purposes, or if you need to get a message across to many employees at once

3. Timesheets - as this is a cloud based software, timesheets can be updated by anyone at anytime (depending on who you give the permissions to), this is all saved and can then be submitted to pay roll for processing. All hours/ wages are calculated automatically and the costs are assigned to the specific sites people have been working on.

4. Induction System - you can give new users a link to the page, they can click enrol and register their details with you. You can approve the user and this automatically puts their details into the user management section to build up the amount of users/ potential new employees.

If there are any problems with any of this you can send an email to customer support and they will resolve the problem for you, and they are always there to help if you have any issues or if you are unsure how to use parts of the software.

Likes Least

1. Assigning permissions to users/projects - can be confusing at first but once you use the software a few times it gets easier to use and understand

2. Project photos- can be slow to upload/view

Recommendations

This is relatively new software and the developers have designed the product focusing on our specific needs as a business. I would recommend this product to all businesses in the construction industry, it will help to streamline the way you work and the way you manage your employees and projects.
