Incredible customer service!

Pros

It is allowing us all to communicate - Contractors, clients and trade partners. The calendar and the daily logs, help keep all people involved in the project on top of it!

Cons

There is so much good stuff, our company in under utilizing it! - No cons on the Buildertrend side...possibly one con would be if you REALLY needed something and are in California, you may have to wait to the next day due to the time change :)

Essential Tool for Construction and Project Management

I love this product and am a big fan; as BT moves forward I would like to see additional options for tracking expenses, the ability to move daily logs to other projects, and copy entries to multiple projects. There is some area for improvement on the time tracking as well.

Pros

This product is extremely easy to use from day one and does not require a great deal of advance setup, we were up to be up and running in our company of 8 from day 1. We spent two years investigating and trying a variety of products, none of them come close to the utility and functions available in BuilderTrend. The service we receive has been exceptional from day one and the online tools, video, and help options are second to none.

Cons

There are very limited options for customization in terms of functionality specifically, as well as limited branding / personalization or formatting of forms (Proposals, Reports, etc.).

Easy to use - great customer service

Pros

I really like the mobile application for my phone - it works great - and it is fully functional.

The online version for a desktop is smooth and has a lot of bells and whistles.

Cons

Takes a little to get used to - but their customer service and training videos are great!

Organization for construction's daily life

Pros

It keeps all our jobs organized where you can find all information needed for specific jobs. Everything ties together through all aspects of a construction project. The clients enjoy having their own personalized web page for their project where they can access all different things at any time through construction and warranty.

Cons

I wish there were less windows you have to open to upload selections, it makes it very choppy. Keeping things more in one window and have more pull-downs would be nice. Also it would be nice to have the same terminology and icon on the mobile app and computer version. Example: its called Calendar on the computer, and Schedules on the mobile app, it throws me every time. Also the change order icon is different on each one too.

Fabulous, modern, organizational tool

Customer service rocks!

Pros

Wide range of features and communication tools. Exceptional customer support. Great for record keeping and project management.

Cons

Not everyone in the industry is on board with this system and that makes it hard to fully utilize the communication tools. I also would like easier viewing of the Gantt chart.

Daily production management for years now

Pros

Anywhere Accessibility and features. The calendar with the ability to have the customer see it is tops.

Cons

I can't print an individual job log. We do wish the estimating side was easier to sync with Microsoft Excel sheets.

We have found many of the tools useful, but dont use all the features

It has been a major step in the right direction from where we are, but we still have a lot of old school subs who refuse to use it. Won't even accept the login request.

Pros

Photos, daily logs, client communication, schedule have all been good tools, as is the leads generation as I have all the leads in one place. It has been a great tool to track the progress of jobs , the change orders, and some other client communication related functions. Also, keeping the bids and other documents accessible 24/7 in the cloud has been great vs. waiting to find something when you are in the office.

Cons

budget system cumbersome when we are working with 4-5 different lenders for the construction loan, haven't been able to figure out a universal way to integrate your system and ours. So, sill doing budget , costing and draws through quickbooks and xcel.
Trouble getting timecard function integrated due to 2 of 4 job sites out of cell reach. No live access.

Great Product

Pros

Buildertrend covers all the bases of what I need to do with ease. Navigation between sections is simple and straight forward.

Cons

I don't care for the drop down menus in the PO portion of Buildertrend. I like to quickly see what I have listed.

Great database and incredible customer service, however it is a little glitchy and expensive.

Pros

The customer service is the best I have experienced from any company, ever. The organization of document and ease-of-access is top-notch.

Cons

The software doesn't always sync up with Quickbooks or Google calendar correctly. It is also pretty pricey.

Great software

This is a great product. We've had excellent results.

Pros

Excellent customer service. Customization on every module. We tried several different software programs to help our project management and this one is by far the best.

Cons

As of now, we do not see any issues. The support staff has always answered our questions. The more we use it the better we like it.

A lot of bang for the buck

Good value for the price

Pros

Buildertrend brings to market a fantastic user interface which makes it easy for users at all levels. Our field and office teams easily collaborate on projects now that our data is in sync at all times. The multiple modules have helped us to reduce the use of other software programs.

Cons

The timecard feature is not as developed as desired. I would like to see this improved as an outside service like T-Sheets is costing money to our company on a user basis. The main complaint is data storage. It would be nice to have Buildertrend link up with box.com (our cloud storage), as many other larger software companies do, so we are not duplicating efforts to get items stored in two locations.

Very easy to use and effective for the work I do.

Pros

What i like about using this software is that it is very simple and easy to use. It is nice to be able to see the calendar with bright colors.

Cons

What I like least about Builder Trend is that it is slow at the most busiest time of the day and freezes at times.

Better than the previous one I used! (Egnyte)

Hopefully you guys create one for track homes! Which is my next project.

Pros

Being able to do a schedule on it. And get different views. And log pics. Also merges the accounting and rfis.

Cons

No complaints. Easy to use from the field. I'm a superintendent on two different projects. It's easy to switch.
