It would be good for the Project Managers, if they were computer literate enough to use it as it compliments a lot of systems. Not worth monthly charge if everyone is not using.

Likes Least

That you go through some of the same steps twice. One on current system, and then Buildertrend, unless you are using a compatible software with them

Recommendations

Make sure you everyone is on board in your company, as it takes a team to make it work for you.

In regards to our business, I felt like I was often re-typing information and that the transfer/uploading of documents wasn't as smooth as I hoped.

Recommendations

You need to be very involved in order to make it work for your business. This is not a product that you can log into weekly and get the best results.

Not much bad. Peak times system may run a little slow and I'm looking forward to integration of bids and proposals.

The daily reports, to-do's, and the general interface are very good. Overall is fairly easy to work with and the software is very friendly. It works well when all the systems are integrated but it limits your accounting to quickbooks to be fully integrated.

Likes Least

Hate the scheduling software. It's slow and clunky. They should find a way to integrateMS Project into it. The document control system is not as friendly. The emails have to be generated from the system in order to be integrated into the software so if someone direct messages and does not reply all, message is not included in string. The accounting is not part of the software, instead it relies on sync with outside software.

Recommendations

If you're going to commit to this software, it works best if all modules are integrated. It's really designed ot be used all together not as a part of multiple softwares. Do consider the accounting integration with quickbooks as it will make everything else run much smoother.

BuilderTrend allows you to capture a lot of information in one place! And syncs to QuickBooks Online. The support staff is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. And in the cases where they don't know the answers they take the time to get an answer to your question. I've also had them pass on suggestions to their software development team, which is nice.

I wish you could create more job costing reports from the system.

Recommendations

I'd say try it, and see if you like it. And if you need help learning how to use it, watch BuilderTrend's support videos or call their helpful staff.

Once you learn the basics of the product use, and build on the many ways it can help in managing a project it becomes a very useful tool in managing projects. I fill that the support is excellent, and I was able to review the software prior to hiring on with Starr Homes to get a feel for how it works. It is an excellent product with great team support.

I think showing more practical ways of using this product on a daily basis in a normal daily routine would be helpful. Having a check list set up when starting a project with all necessary information each time a job is set up would be helpful.

Recommendations

Take a look at the on line support videos and review how it would definitely be a big help in properly managing projects.

I get inundated with schedules way to far in advance. dates are never accurate when scheduling months in advance. Only need updates when it is ready to place order or deliver in current month when dates are solid.

Recommendations

need to figure out how to get a quick shot of all upcoming delivery dates on a easy to get report daily. This would be better than trying to chase 50 emails with bogus dates months in advance.
