About Builterra platform

Builterra provides full web-portal access to real-time inspection data, progress quantities, progress payment dashboards, and detailed payment reports streamlining the approval of end of month invoices from the contractor.

Standardization of bid items and specifications for the purposes of cost estimating is a common goal for all public sector organizations and the civil engineers who work for them. The Builterra cloud built on Microsoft Azure, assures that all internal and external consultants are using the most up to date items used in the bid process. This opens the door for public sector pre-construction e-procurement, construction progress tracking, and post-construction quality assurance and asset management.

Efficiency

Its nice but interface can provide more information, such as we have a very big contract. The contract has several roads in it, I work on one road and need an immediate update about the total quantity of work done entered or left...

Pros

Its a very efficient product I ever used. I like smart reporting software. Its efficient, easy to access from anywhere onsite or office or from home. No need more paperwork..

Cons

The online software should have offline software which can synchronize when connected to internet. The offline version can be fast as the online version speed is depending on internet...

Hi Eesan, thanks for the review. We have many options to handle copy and repeat of data within the app. Data entry templates, cascading lookup, copy from past inspections to name a few. Please review the Builterra Training portal using the web link https://portal.builterra.com/Training to assit with more advanced data entry using the app. Also, if training is required reach out to support@builterra.com to walk you through the copy past data options. The App interface will be going through changes in Fall 2021 with include room for more data collection options ...so patience is appreciated!

Construction Inspector iPad App User

Overall this is definitely an improvement over a clunky excel file, but there is still bugs and a lot of untapped potential left in the app.

Pros

I do like the template feature, the automatic weather feature, the contract item drop down list, and the “get location” feature. They did a great job on integrating this app for our projects.

Cons

1. Should be able to complete the daily and EWO report without using the web app. Should be able to complete a report within the mobile app alone. 2. Once the inspection is reviewed it should automatically append a digital signature and then get sent to the contractor for their digital signature. 3. In the mobile app review mode, text overlaps making it difficult to find the item your are trying to review 4. You should be able to adjust the order that the items appear in the pdf or excel report. The web app allows the item # to be changed but this is not reflected once the report is produced. 5. Rows should automatically adjust in the final report if a remark is expanded upon. 6. If an item is deleted or modified in the mobile app for both dailies and EWO it is not always reflected in the final report. 7. Contract pay items appear to give you the impression that you can change the pay item that was initially selected, but this does not get reflected on the final report. 8. Ideally the create inspection and modify inspection are not on separate interfaces.

We appreciate your review. We're thrilled to hear you're pleased with some of our key features and the integration process was great! The Mobile App can be used to ¿Create¿ a new Daily and Extra Work Order, review and edit any previously submitted data using the ¿Review Mode¿. Completed daily and EWO can be approved and emailed to any external reviewers, all without use of web portal. The review process does add a digital time/date stamp for inspector, external reviewers and supervisor. Unfortunately, we only have 1000 chars to respond so we can't address everything here. Please reach out to support@builterra.com as we'd love to have you on our Platform Advisory Council! We're planning major updates to our user interface this Fall so stay tuned. Thank you for this valuable feedback! Users like you ensure the platform keeps getting better.

A great way to get away from the field book

Our experience has been very positive, but we feel we will find the greatest benefits during the project closure phase where we will be able to go back and look at specific issues rather than having the wade through site reports and untagged photos.

Pros

Builterra allows us to track construction project and document design information in the field in a manner that minimizes our office time necessary to compile the data into a useful form.

Cons

There are some minor glitches with not being able to easily assign a new project from the field which we need for design uses, but it is easily resolved in the office.

Reasons for Choosing Builterra platform

Cost, ease of launching and modular approach that allowed us to slowly ramp up as the economics and projects supported more users.

Good Contract Administration Software

We utilize Builterra for the majority of Road, Water and Sewer projects. It takes a while to learn and gain the ability to navigate the software but the benefits of having all projects files managed on one functional platform make it very worthwhile.

Pros

The ability to manage all of our projects throughout their lifecycle on one software platform is very efficient. Incorporating bid creation, tendering, contract administration and inspection together in a readable format is unique in the industry. Custom reporting options are extremely beneficial for our management systems and project tracking systems.

Cons

The software works fairly well but sometimes it forces you to always start at the main project page instead. Some additional navigation buttons within the project management files would be beneficial. Some custom features that are unique to our organization should probably be "out of the box" features in future upgrades to Builterra.

Reasons for Switching to Builterra platform

Limited capability of the existing platform and no inspection platform.
