"Great Builder Based Product for Construction Industry"

What do you like best?

Buildertrend offers great integration from tracking purchase orders, maintain subcontractor communication, sharing progress through social media, and tracking warranty for the residential construction industry.

What do you dislike?

The on-boarding time to bring everything into the system and the time to integrate the previous homes that were completed prior to utilizing the program was a bit extensive and time consuming but that is similar with most programs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be honest with yourself about how much time it will take you to upload everything into the system so that you can set honest expectations on your ROI

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has streamlined the problems we had previously with tracking all aspects of the building process. The benefits are definitely seen in closing out the bid and tracking cost of build through various vendors and subs.

"A contractor's dream"

What do you like best?

We love this web program! It is so simple to use and has a feature for each need we have when completing a remodel job. Chat is always available when I have questions and help me very quickly and easily.

What do you dislike?

There's not much that I do not like about this website. Some features can often be difficult to find or use but it is just a matter of playing around with the program to figure out how to use it

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely a must have tool for any contractor. Every piece of information you need about a job is available in one place

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this program for pretty much every aspect of our remodel jobs. Homeowners can log into their very own website and see progress on their home, as well as see the calendar and ask questions or leave comments at any time of the day.

What Construction Suites solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Does what we need it to "

What do you like best?

The construction company I'm involved with loves the sub-contractor management piece that allows us to easily communicate with our subs and put projects out to bid easily and collect and compare bids seamlessly.

We are trying to dive deeper into the customer communication piece, especially for change orders. If we can nail down how best to use this it will save us/ make us more money.

Love the selections aspect. It takes a lot of upfront work and staying on top of selections. Once we got it all figured out it has been great

Lastly we rely on the calendaring aspect and really love how it works and ties into the other sections we use of the software.

What do you dislike?

There is a lot to this software, so we probably only use a third of it. Some minor UI aspects bother us, but nothing too bad. Leads section is lacking. Also we don't love the payment model (annual job starts), we almost went with a competitor solely for this reason

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lack of organization, communication, and collaboration between the different pieces of our business (us, vendors, and clients). Getting past the learning curve was LONG and some of our guys struggled but the benefits have been great and we have more insight and are more efficient. Also I am not involved in the day to day of this construction company (used to be and am now on the board) but it allows me to get a macro view of what the entire company is doing and then drill down to what I want to see

"Great for small builders"

What do you like best?

I like that all areas of the construction team can use the software - the guys in the field, the project managers, the design team, the subcontractors and even the accounting team. It summarizes data well.

What do you dislike?

For larger builders the software seems to have difficult working at the same speed while holding so much data, although I believe this has gotten better over the past year.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

They have created new tools for creating budgets that I believe make it more useful.

What do you like best?

Great for all sized companies trying to manage build projects. this application is easy to use and not really expensive.

What do you dislike?

The admin/ owner view is very confusing. Application needs to have a cleaner owner dashboard.

Recommendations to others considering the product

understand how to use the application before implementing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we are solving communication problems. now the builder and all sub contractors can discuss informatio within one portal and any other project manager can log into see the project as needed.
