McCallum Services Review

Still learning the ins and outs but my clients love the transparency to the day to day operations.

Pros

So far the ease of use with short learning curve.

Cons

I am also using Sketchup so maybe adding in some drawing software for simple sketches or editing.

Reasons for choosing BuildBook

Pricing was best for me as a small operation.

Reasons for switching to BuildBook

Lack of support after being locked into a contract.

Bud's Review

Buildbook has been great to use for me and my team. The Buildbook team is very responsive to suggestion and implement suggestions from the field that are great.

Pros

Buildbook is easy to use for my team in the field, and also for customers.

Cons

I would like to see card displays in all areas. Creating a opportunity to project can be a little smoother.

Reasons for choosing BuildBook

Cost, ease of use

Reasons for switching to BuildBook

Procore is too robust for my projects and was cumbersome to customers.

Initial thoughts

Good. The people seem great. I do believe they will work the issues and help to create product that is in tune with the current market needs.

Pros

When I first looked into it I was happy to have a product that was easy for tracking leads and providing a project tool for our employees

Cons

The inability to turn a won lead into a project. It’s redundant to have to take the notes from the lead and redo them once a project is won.

Reasons for choosing BuildBook

I was initially impressed. I believed BuildBook to be a solution for job and lead tracking and it seemed to be easy to use. However, as we have moved forward the initial wow factor has slowly dwindled because of the redundancy.

Reasons for switching to BuildBook

MaintainX didn’t have any lead tracking capabilities however for project management features, such as the ability to creat work order, processes, and templates for procedures, it was better.

Clean, simple and easy to use project management software

They have a great team that is very responsive, and keeps their customers updated with upcoming upgrades to the system. Customer service is great, and they made the transition easy.

Pros

I love how simple this software is to use, and how well is works alongside our current processes. It's clean and easy to use for both our team and clients, and does not have all of the clutter and clunkiness that larger softwares have. It allows us to have a central hub for all project-related communications, in a clean, minimal interface.

Cons

Scheduling could be improved a bit, and I'm confident that it will be sooner than later based on the recent updates and communications stating the upcoming upgrades that are rolling out in the coming months. Bid & PO Management is also missing, so looking forward for that to come through.

Reasons for switching to BuildBook

We went from Asana for Task Management, to Co-Construct for financial and scheduling, then to Buildertrend for improved Scheduling. All systems left much to be desired, and the BuilderTrend offered lots of features that simply didn't work for us due to its lack of a tax integration. The QBO integration didn't work for us, and neither did their system of manually uploading expenses into the software, which we already have automated with other softwares. Ultimately, we ended up paying a premium for a software that we only used 25% of the features for, so we reevaluated and decided to make a switch to a more simple, cost-effective software in BuildBook that has all the right tools, and nothing more. We appreciate BuildBook's minimal, clutter-free design and easy navigation.

Great Market Fit, But Need to Counter-Balance Cost-Plus Construction

I enjoy it as a tool for promoting a greater customer experience. I don't know how much I would say that it helps me run my construction business at this point.

Pros

The market distinctive for my business is this software and my design process. This program achieves my goal of promoting high-level visibility between me and the client while allowing me to have a project management system that is efficient and clean.

Cons

As mentioned before, the product feels like it's been built so heavily around the customer experience that it's weak on the project execution features. More specifically the financial management and scheduling side of the project. In regards to the former, the financial management system is almost entirely communicative. But it doesn't actually serve me in any significant ways of managing my financials. The scheduling system is clunky. I don't know if this is a feature but I hope that you guys will allow for a microsoft project integration as I will have to explore other products to schedule construction as Buildbook's system takes way too long.

Reasons for switching to BuildBook

Cost. Trying to match software useage/cost with current operational level. Business neither complex nor large enough to warrant expensive (and perhaps more comprehensive) systems.
