There have been some issues adding photos at times on an older Ipad my superintendent uses. Could be the software on the Ipad.

Get your subs and clients used to using the approval tools and it can expedite a lot of different areas of jobs.

Intuitive, Efficient, and User Friendly. It is very user friendly and allows me to streamline my processes, allow management to see progress of jobs quickly. Allowing management to see pictures in real time is great. Pictures are a huge part of our operations and it lets me view what is going on that day at the job site. I personally utilize all aspects of the calendar feature more than anything on the app.

Likes Least

It would meet my needs 100% if it was geared towards Contractors not just Home Builders.

Recommendations

This is a great tool and I did a lot of research before making the transition. It was an easy decision, however you need to have the proper staff in place to manage the system. It is only as good as the person(s) managing the software.

It does not provide metrics. Measurement of results. There should be a macro where you can view jobs on time. Overall GM performance and Daily logs being hit.

Recommendations

It required a very hands on management of your team for it to be effective. It is challenging in a culture of empowerment where there is no micromanagement style.

I think your program requires some improvements to make it more user friendly. I think your program should allow subscribers a say in how they need things to work, BuilderTrend should be able to offer each and every client it's own individual setup within the programme which can be edited and amended to suit the clients requirements.

Recommendations

Look at all your options before committing to any product or programme.

BuilderTrend is so east to use! Homeowners love having the app on their tablets and phones. They like knowing that they can enter a Warranty Claim 24/7. We love how everything is in one place, allowing us to streamline the way we do business.
Their technology assistants are the best. All we have to do is send them a message, and their team takes care of it right away.

There is nothing negative to share. The product and vendor are great.

Recommendations

There is not going to be another software company out there that will give you as much "bang for your buck". The technology is great, their service is excellent, and your homeowners will love how they can have access to their home building process.

Tracking costs is not user friendly. You have to create a "dummy sub" to submit a bid for a contractor that doesnt use builder trend. I should be able to input the data and have it simply track that.

Recommendations

Make the input for tracking cost and bids easier. Love the clock in and out feature, that locates the job that your at. Material selections should be able to easily translate to the job cost by simply inputting the cost and quantity and using from one job to the next.

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.
