One stop solution for Project Managers & Contract Administrators

I would like to recommend this software based on its pricing and ability to address all project needs. Best for small or mid-size contractors, who are looking for a cost effective solution and want to save time and increase efficiency. This software assists you to prepare your price quotes, generate invoices & claims, monitor project activities and administer tasks assigned to other team members.

Pros

A dashboard style experience, where you can access all project related data and information with quick access over a single window. Very effective for preparing preliminary cost estimates using in-built cost breakdown, material & assembly libraries. Estimators can use it to carryout onscreen take-offs, preparing price quotes. Good for financial management with tools like cashbook, purchase order, progress claims. Essential project & contract management functions like keeping eye on project deliverables by accessing contract & document library, overviewing daily task using scheduling tools and working out project variations are also available.

Cons

Although it’s easy to learn but still takes time to get a full grasp on each module. It is suggested to include detailed demo videos for each section. I liked dashboard style home screen but still prefer a tab based experience to access different modules at top of screen. I suggest if a switch between two layouts is provided and first feel of dashboard is too bright colours. While using it on laptop, It seem to run slow few times. This could be due to default screen layout, where it opens up different components all at once. I would recommend trying it on desktop with high resolution monitor. I would like to see document library linked with cloud based storage like one drive or dropbox. Also if a web based solution to access software remotely from anywhere is provided that would give more flexibility.

Software Not Ready for Widespread Use - Faulty Install Package

The system requirements aren't accurately described from the onset. The software website is poorly designed.

Pros

The software has a generous trial period (1 year from install).

Cons

The install was very problematic. It would not continue unless it was constantly monitored and restarted. When it finally did install, the program created a new prompt which notified of missing components. Those components failed to install. Finally, the program itself wouldn't restart. Attempt was made to re-install from the original download package which took 2 hours to download. The .exe file refused to re-initiate.

Estimating and construction software

I found the software to be slow at times but overall it achieves what people will need. Easy to use take off tools with printable or pdf save options. Plus other great features for scheduling, and project management. Would really like to see accounting integration option to take it to the next levels

Pros

I like the color coded tabs that are easy to find and set up. It’s nice that they include pricing built in for estimating and budgeting. I s as Leo like the quick snap take off tools which are easy to use and also easy to save. They offer a take off report print out which is nice to save and attach on a job specific or take off specific basis. The takeoff features are easy to use and operate and they also include free tutorials that are short and to the point (video tutorials) easy to find and watch for quick information

Cons

I wish they provided change order management options and accounting integration. As a small business it’s easier to have everything tied into one place and 1 software. They need to expand it or partner with an accounting software so you can package everything together and make it affordable. They would also be smart to allow a feature to access the RS means pricing with the purchase of this software so there was a more robust built in pricing database.

Great Platform integrating vital functions of project management

In cost estimating, we need consistency, speed, precision, and accuracy, the BuilderSYS computerized estimating platform delivers such a high level of professionalism while integrating important related functions such as take-off, estimating, scheduling, progress claims, purchase orders, cash flow and generating reports. The BuilderSYS software is an efficient tool for today’s contractor who needs a project management software to organize their business as well as optimize it. It also helps you save time with its report generating capability. The inclusion of cost data in the software is also a huge time saver for cost estimating. Traditionally, contractors use several platforms to provide various construction services which creates silos and disconnects between teams: while a tool like BuilderSYS brings entire teams together into a common platform. Such a system improves communication between teams and reduce errors. Now your estimator, project manager and other stakeholders can use the same platform for a streamlined process.

Pros

Integration of useful project management functions & inclusion of built-in cost data. Ease of use. The training videos on their website is also a good touch to provide new users guidance.

Cons

There wasn't any particular feature I did not like about the software.

Cost Estimation and Construction Takeoff

Pros

It's colored tabs. All options are available in single tab. Like you can easily export it price it and share it with your client. You can get new contracts too.

Cons

It's not run properly if you're using other software's too. Resolution & Takeoff quality is good but should be improved. More no of tabs in-front of single screen sometimes makes you confused.

All In One Software for Quantity Surveying

This is like a One-Stop-Shop for Quantity Surveyors.

Pros

It was easy to use, providing that there are video tutorials for first-time users. This software can be use from Pre Construction to Post Construction. Can use in Estimating, Costing and Project Monitoring.

Cons

You will just be overwhelm with the "Home" view. I think this needs a little layout improvement. And also this requires a large screen resolution to maximize its use.

Overall the software is good replacement for other estimation software in the market

Pros

I like most about this software that they are offering the material prices so it saves a lot of time.

Cons

I like least about this software is the screen resolution but it is not a major drawback. I hope in future, the software can be used in any screen resolution.
