Love everything other than the pricing

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: When I started working with a team from Signature Building Systems, I first "met" Buildertrend, since then it's been a fun ride. I did change a lot for the team since then (which is kind of what my thing), and probably upped their productivity by a lot.

Pros:

More than their financial and sales solutions, unique features, I loved how much resources they had for someone new! Though I have used tons of PMS over the years, there's always something new with them, all of them. So, the resources helped me to run through them, fast.

Cons:

They are excellent! Don't get me wrong. But god, they are pricey! I have this thing for most PMS though! I think they charge a bit too much.

Streamlines so many parts of our business

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Very good. If youre going to integrate BT make sure you take it on a section at a time. Dont try and open up too many sections to your team These guys have given a lot of thought to the software and it forms an amazing backbone for any client facing construction business. We couldnt last the day without it.

Pros:

This software is outstanding in many different areas We initially purchased it initially to manage our clients selections for new homes and it quickly got integrated elsewhere to the point its the backbone of many of our processes We use this now to manage client change order (it pays for itself on this alone every month) selections, materials ordering from site, daily logs, H&S management, RFI's for the design team and photo storage and programming to name but a few We couldn't go back to the old ways of doing many of these There are a lot of different features and you'll certainly find many that'll make it worth your while to use Oh and the customer support is ace

Cons:

Overall roll out is great and intuitive but you do need to comit to integrating BT to your business and this takes time and effort. THis is a software that gives back 10 fold what you put in, but it does need your comittment.

Alternatives Considered: Procore and BuilderStorm

Reasons for Switching to Buildertrend: Client facing elements are superb Best fit for our size of business wide host of services

Good Value

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: While in general we've been happy but our frustration points have pushed us to look at others. There may be other programs that work like BuilderTrend but we haven't found anything that gives us what we're looking for. While BT has made strides recently we would like to see more industry standard issues resolved on the back end. For the money though it is reasonable.

Pros:

Documentation preservation. Job organization

Cons:

Accounting does not follow basic industry standards. We've have had invoices rejected because there is basic information missing like issue and due date. We don't care about print date. Is that industry standard?

Estimating Application Bug

3.0 2 months ago

Comments: No sense of urgency to fix a critical application "bug."

Pros:

the use of daily logs to include all types of media ... our clients appreciate the updated. Job scheduling.

Cons:

BT has yet to fix the bug in their estimating module making it impossible to update an estimate. No resolution target date.

Essential (can’t function without it)

5.0 2 months ago

Pros:

Lots of help for new comers/employees. Listens to feedback on how to masks software better. Reminders, schedule and to-dos make employee productivity so much higher. Lead management is all in the same software. Financial reports are convienent. Track your POS easily. So much more!

Cons:

Nothing. This software makes running and working in a complex industry so much more manageable.
