Closeout Software


 

Closeout is a cloud-based construction software solution offering platforms for both residential and commercial builders.

Closeout creates punch lists that users can access from both their mobile devices and computers. On mobile devices, users can record issues and assign jobs. On their computers, users can sort and review punch lists, export PDF and Excel reports and set up new projects.

Closeout has an offline mode, so that when users don’t have service, they can record actions in the system like normal, and then upload their work when they are online again. Subcontractors do not need to download the Closeout app, but can access their own Web portal where they can view and comment on all tasks assigned to them.

Users can take photos of deficiencies from within the mobile app, or they can upload photos from their phone camera’s album. Closeout offers free custom setup to all new clients.

Closeout is priced per project per month. A mobile app for iOS is offered.

Pros

I like the layout, and clarity of the task list. The options to add tags for quick searches, and photos to share with team have proven helpful.

Cons

I wish you could edit and/or delete previously entered comments.
It would also be nice if when assigning tasks, the assignee would get a notification email to let them know of the new task.

Pros

If you can take a picture with your phone you can use this software. The behind the scenes set up is a pro because you can make it fit your company and business model.

Cons

The only con if you want to call it that, is the behind the scenes set up because you can make it fit your company and business model so well it seems like you keep adding things to make it better.

Improved quality, quicker completion, and a client who's mind was at ease knowing that a good system was in place for ensuring punchlist items were properly dealt with.

Pros

The ability to quickly access reports of the status by trade was critical to keeping trades accountable to the overall goal of speed and quality.

Cons

I would love to see the pictures saved to my device with the mark ups made in closeout maintained. This would add another layer of value in that we would be able to share a photo with illustrations for training / instructional / discussion purposes to those not on the team.

The ease of use in the office and the field were major benefits. The automated distribution to the trades ensured that all parties had current information of deficiency statuses.
The search function on the web was great.
The ability to create individual/ filterable reports on the web was great.
The Bridgit team and support staff were excellent and always available.

Cons

The search ability of specific trade items on the app could use some refinement. The project did experience some technical difficulties with connection and access throughout the project.

Organization of many issues and punchlist items to be officially documented in a timely manner over many different projects with different contractors.

Pros

Its ease of use in all aspects make this software program extremely efficient and helpful. Being in a fast pace environment it is great to have a program/app that nearly anyone can pick up and have all deficiencies related to your projects at your finger tips an more importantly in an organized fashion.

Cons

There are not any customizable reports that you can create by selecting particular fields to be viewed only when printed.

The audits need to coordinated with each other so that the performance audit is in the same numerical order as the Tarion order is in the same numerical order as Closeout.
Need to download the PA pictures to Closeout.
Cannot send messages from underground garages.
Pictures when taken in garages sometimes are not saved.

Enhanced communication, timely execution of QA/QC issues, a more professional presentation of punch-list items.

Pros

The #1 feature of Bridgit in my opinion is the automatic communication with subcontractors. Gone are the days of painfully filling out an excel spreadsheet and constantly nagging subcontractors with revision after revision after revision.

Cons

I wish there was a way to load the actual plans into the system so tagging floors/rooms/locations could be even easier.

That multiple people involved in the project can load punch list items seamlessly. It really helps that the Owner's Rep, Architect, and our team can all input items.

The cost is definitely on the expensive side for our small company. It would be nice to use this on multiple projects, but we would need to see some cost savings in order to incorporate.

It assists with communicating a problem quickly to everyone.

Pros

It is very easy to learn and begin using. Very fast ,and the pictures are clear. Like that we can contact the contractor and all the subs at the same time.

Cons

Maybe the app needs a way to describe the level of urgency an items is, or the importance of getting a task completed quickly.

I benefit from speeding up the punch process. Also Bridgit makes it easy for our subcontractors to see exactly which items they need to fix.

Pros

Makes creating and maintaining punch lists much easier and quicker. The user interface is simple and is easy to pick up which is very nice for people that aren't as tech savvy. It is also great that you guys are on the android app store so now anyone that has access to a smart phone can get the app.

Cons

Sometimes you have to click through too many fields to add a similar item. shortcuts would be nice. For example if I am in a certain room and I want to keep adding items to this one room it would be helpful to not have to click through the floor, location, ect. I'm pretty sure you guys are already working on this issue. but other than that I don't have any complaints and if I do you guys are easy to get ahold of.

The system sends out updates to set up contacts automatically.

Pros

Easy to distribute updates to trades periodically and track all the changes. Easy to add new items to the list.

Cons

Not able to separate different scopes for a trade.
If team members changes, updates had to be done to each item on the list.

Makes the compilation, tracking and completion of deficiencies easy to use. The ability to take photos to show the deficiency to the trades is a definite plus.

Pros

Being able to use the mobile smart phone to run the program and the simplicity to use the program are the two major Pro's of the program.

Cons

Not all functions of the program is available on android phones yet. Currently mostly tailored to the Apple mobile product.
