No financials, support is difficult to obtain, licenses are costly, no mobile platform developed when I uses

Good software

Pros

Buzzsaw is able to store a lot of information and its super easy to then share this information with clients. Very easy to use.

Cons

The mobile app is not what it needs to be (a lot of features are not on the app) Mobility these days is essential so i think they need to update the mobile software so its more easily accessible.

This is just what we needed

Pros

I use this program specifically to turn all sorts of formats of drawings into pdfs and or into GIFs for our estimating software. Once a fellow employee showed me how to use it I quickly found it as a very useful tool for our construction needs. We are constantly receiving drawings in all sorts of formats.

Cons

It can be a little clunky and not untuituve at first but I learned quickly and could see why they format the way they do.

On its way!

Pros

Buzzsaw is very easy to use and has an easy to understand interface. It requires very little training for new users to understand, and allows you to coordinate and monitor multiple large projects(in my case, 11 projects all in excess of $50MM) Buzzsaw gets the job done.

Cons

Definitely need a lot of work on the mobile side of things. Their mobile apps leave a lot of critical features off, and this really bothers me. Additionally, because of the design, you have to use a windows based computer with IE to access full functionality. As a Mac user, I had to buy a second laptop just to use Buzzsaw.
