Closeout Software


 

Closeout is a cloud-based construction software solution offering platforms for both residential and commercial builders.

Closeout creates punch lists that users can access from both their mobile devices and computers. On mobile devices, users can record issues and assign jobs. On their computers, users can sort and review punch lists, export PDF and Excel reports and set up new projects.

Closeout has an offline mode, so that when users don’t have service, they can record actions in the system like normal, and then upload their work when they are online again. Subcontractors do not need to download the Closeout app, but can access their own Web portal where they can view and comment on all tasks assigned to them.

Users can take photos of deficiencies from within the mobile app, or they can upload photos from their phone camera’s album. Closeout offers free custom setup to all new clients.

Closeout is priced per project per month. A mobile app for iOS is offered.

I benefit from speeding up the punch process. Also Bridgit makes it easy for our subcontractors to see exactly which items they need to fix.

Pros

Makes creating and maintaining punch lists much easier and quicker. The user interface is simple and is easy to pick up which is very nice for people that aren't as tech savvy. It is also great that you guys are on the android app store so now anyone that has access to a smart phone can get the app.

Cons

Sometimes you have to click through too many fields to add a similar item. shortcuts would be nice. For example if I am in a certain room and I want to keep adding items to this one room it would be helpful to not have to click through the floor, location, ect. I'm pretty sure you guys are already working on this issue. but other than that I don't have any complaints and if I do you guys are easy to get ahold of.

The system sends out updates to set up contacts automatically.

Pros

Easy to distribute updates to trades periodically and track all the changes. Easy to add new items to the list.

Cons

Not able to separate different scopes for a trade.
If team members changes, updates had to be done to each item on the list.

Makes the compilation, tracking and completion of deficiencies easy to use. The ability to take photos to show the deficiency to the trades is a definite plus.

Pros

Being able to use the mobile smart phone to run the program and the simplicity to use the program are the two major Pro's of the program.

Cons

Not all functions of the program is available on android phones yet. Currently mostly tailored to the Apple mobile product.

Instant update of deficiencies from site

Pros

I like the portability and the fact that I can use on site without the need to wait until I am transposing pictures, notes, etc. Also the fact that each defect trigger an email to the contractor involve, project manager etc is a plus.

Cons

So far the main issue was inability under Android to use at full capacity the application in basements or where no reception. I hope this was taken care of now.

Reduced time to generate punch list. better communication of punch items, faster response to clear items.

Pros

using this tool reduced confusion in communication and allowed the contractor to react and clear punches very rapidly.

Cons

Pros

Its quick, its reliable and automated. The learning curve was short and swift for users of all technical abilities. Photos are a big help

Cons

You need to establish a clear methodology for use by each project team which can make it complicated. Some items, like paint touch ups, as so frequent that it becomes time consuming to create a new item for each paint mark. If you create one item and list the spots in the description, you cannot close it until all items are complete.
I think there are also some functions that are clunky, like changing users or viewing a list of items in the app. The placement of where you tap to access the lists are not clear to all users, so we have experienced some missed items until they were shown precisely where to tap.
The final downfall, which I think is most important and would take the software to new levels is the adoption of multi-phased deficiencies. Items such as moving a potlight require several users to be informed, yet it would remain "open" on their lists until all parties are finished, OR the first party closes it and the remainder of the trades no longer see it on their lists. Staging it where completion from one trade notifies the next that they need to begin would be a major step forward

Multi step item status change function is brilliant. Contractor claims it's done, and it needs to be checked by owner, and it's signed off.

Cons

Plangrid punch is better. Having ability to put items on plans is a big plus, and should be integrated into this software also. It is very time consuming to go over all the steps to only add an item.

We save time coordinating with the trades on deficiency lists, it is easy for them to see the issues and get them corrected in a timely manner. It is also a good method to track recurring issues.

Pros

This software is very easy to use and understand. The use of automated emails are a great time saver.

Cons

Doing deficiency lists in large open areas are sometimes problematic, to be able to quickly pinpoint or locate the area on a drawing.

Regular updates on site progress was valuable to receive

Pros

Intention to manage punchlists is admirable
Keeps everyone aware of the critical issues of the day or week
Like that it is additive

Cons

I found it could be more condensed
there's a need for just a snaphot summary of tasks - what I received was too piecemeal
I do not know if that is due to the software or the way it was being processed and forwarded to me
