Bolt is an integrated cloud-based solution for small to large subcontractors in the construction industry. The software assists users with takeoff, scheduling, project management, and service management. The solution removes paperwork by using mobile access tools that allow real time editing of job changes, and the document management system that stores job-related files in the cloud.

Crew’s schedules can be created online, allowing them access to daily tasks and job documents on their iPad. The Service Management tool provides job scheduling, job status tracking, dispatching, and work orders. Builder system integration downloads work orders directly from the builder that saves data entry time and prevents errors. QuickBooks integration gives users the ability to create invoices straight from Bolt.

Bolt supports residential and commercial subcontractors who work in a variety of specialties including concrete, electrical, landscaping, plumbing, roofing, HVAC, cabinetry, and finishing contractors. The software can be accessed on Mac or PC with an internet connection, including iPad and Android.

Clear, precise, practical

Added controls.

Pros

The software is very user friendly, set up and maintenance is easy. Accurate to industry and defaults are extremely accurate to real operations.

Cons

Possibly more customer branding capabilities rather than BOLT branding. APP button to be changed to customer branding.

not enough real daily experience yet to give full feedback

Pros

ability to understand and adapt to our business process and easily adapt to our flow of production needed

Cons

don't like that you can only make changes to processing in the scheduling page. It would be better if one main page controlled everything for the job. However, i am still very new to the software, so I may not be the best judge yet

Easy, efficient. Fast software with so many options.

Pros

The easiness of maneuvering through the software. There are so many different ways that we can set up the software and all of them are easy to work through.

Cons

The calendar needs to be simplified a little bit. The layout for scheduling is a little condensed and hard to read. The time frames run too closely together which makes it difficult to read.

Great software to increase efficiency & keep history data

Before implementing Bolt many of our scheduling tasks were completed by individual employees. Now we have a centralized way of researching data instead of having to go to individual employees. I love the forecast & report features. It is very helpful to see upcoming work volume via calendar view. I find it very helpful you can drag and drop documents & pictures attached to a particular job. Bolt is a helpful scheduling software tool both in the office and out in the field via its mobile capabilities.

Pros

Forecast, Report, Mobile Capabilities, Calendar view, multiple user access and drag & drop documents & pictures

Cons

inability to change color template

Fitting the software to our needs.

Since we are just getting started and we are custom fitting the system every thing is going great. After a few more adjustments I believe we will have what we have been looking for. my staff is finding the system very easy to learn and use. The support staff has been a pleasure to work with

It's all OK.

As a purchasing agent, there very little advantage to the software. Calendar is what I use he most,but not much advantage to the calendar on Outlook, except i can let the installers know the material is ready, but they can see that in the warehouse.

Pros

Nice for scheduling and capability of getting feedback from employees.

Good ERP software

it's a simple ERP system, maybe the refresh could be done automatic. In all the system works perfect for the type of business we do.

Pros

simple to educate

Cons

auto refresh would be helpful

Good program

So far I have liked working with this program for our scheduling purposes. Out of everyone in the office, I am the one that uses it the most, since I am the one that schedules all of our new job starts for the company, and has been very easy for me.

Strong potential but still growing.

This product has helped track and streamline a fair amount of our scheduling of jobs. I was placed in charge of the programs setup and roll out and once I learned the software, the options and customizability are pretty incredible. BOLT has helped us and the program to adapt to each other but the system is still fairly linear and definitely has room to improve. At times it can be difficult to reach customer support (our account manager) but they do get back to you after a time.

Pros

Automates some of our processes.

Cons

VERY buggy. iPads crash frequently and any time we make admin changes in the system, the system has a fairly large mishap of some kind.
