Buzzsaw is very easy to use and has an easy to understand interface. It requires very little training for new users to understand, and allows you to coordinate and monitor multiple large projects(in my case, 11 projects all in excess of $50MM) Buzzsaw gets the job done.
Definitely need a lot of work on the mobile side of things. Their mobile apps leave a lot of critical features off, and this really bothers me. Additionally, because of the design, you have to use a windows based computer with IE to access full functionality. As a Mac user, I had to buy a second laptop just to use Buzzsaw.
Mobile power is almost more important that desktop. Incorporate more construction critical processes, I.E. Punch lists, etc
