Online construction management for builders & remodelers

About Buildxact

Buildxact is an easy-to-use estimating, quoting and construction management software uniquely designed for small builders & remodelers helping them easily and smoothly manage jobs from first contact to final invoice. With Buildxact, you can do takeoffs, job costing and quotes up to 80% faster, as well as simple scheduling, streamlined cost tracking & purchasing. Buildxact is cloud-based, and you can be up and running in under 2 hours.

Being cloud-based, Buildxact gives users the flexibility to access their construction management tools anywhere, anytime via any internet-enabled device, including desktops, laptops, tablets and mobiles. A simple takeoff management tool allows users to count items and perform inches, feet and yards takeoffs in a few clicks.
Buildxact facilitates accurate project costing and estimating with built-in price lists, composite recipes, automatic wastage and rounding features. Quote management tools enable users to create professional, branded quotes which they can print or email to their customers. Buildxact allows users to give customers detailed specifications with images and a clear breakdown of any PC/PS items.

Estimates enable users to create project schedules automatically, while cost tracking and purchasing capabilities help users create purchase or work orders and manage their budget effectively. Clear, central dashboards allow users to track their budget spend at-a-glance, and pre-formatted templates enable users to create invoices for projects quickly and easily. Further tracking features allow users to track customer payments and any other outstanding balances. Integration with accounting apps like QuickBooks and Xero enable users to track their finances and sync purchases and invoices for payments or reconciliations automatically. Buildxact also allows users to integrate with the Deputy workforce management app to manage timesheets efficiently.

    outstanding.

    outstanding.

    Pros

    We run a large franchise business across New Zealand and Australia. The fact that it is cloud based makes it very easy for us to use anywhere,anytime. I also like the team and their approach to listening closely to feedback from users, they’re always looking to improve the system.

    Cons

    Hard to say. The variation function is limited at times as you cant use recipes to price them up quickly.

    I can now keep up with all quotes & take offs, time is saved massively! Not too mention I can attach all my contracts and save all my templates from all my suppliers, I love it!!

    Pros

    Keeping up with all our take offs, sending invoices/quotes etc

    Cons

    No iPhone app, so we can access all costings and other areas that you can from a PC, I have bookmarked the site so I have easy access to some areas of Builxact from my iPhone, that’s the only improvement I can see what will make this software
