Revolutionized my sales follow up

I used other CRMs in the past, but love using BuilderTrend. Its simple setup has allowed me to keep track of my customers as well as provide better follow up to my clients. I just utilize the Sales section of BuilderTrend, but it has improved my client relationships and increased my overall sales.

Pros

Buildertrend is great--I love using the Activity Calendar and Lead Report to keep track of my follow up with my customers. I can use activity notes to remember what I discussed with customers when we last spoke, and this helps me engage in better dialogue when I follow up with customers. Our installation team loves using the project management feature to keep track of our installs and provide an easy transition from sales to installation.

Cons

The user interface is kind of clunky, especially on the app. Sometimes it is difficult to find stuff and the filters can get annoying.

Response from Buildertrend

Brian, thank you for your review and honest feedback! We love hearing how Buildertrend has helped your company.

Arthur's BT experience at TCON Homes

It is helping in changing the culture at TCON Homes. It is a bit hard to explain for construction people that planning is more cost effective than starting smashing walls because you are aggregating value doing physical labour.

Pros

Communication of job progress with subcontractors, client portal, upload photos, variatin and owner invoices.

Cons

There is no taxes *yet.
No milestones schedule items, but maybe not needed.
Hope one day I can see To-dos on Gantt chart (not as a extra line, but a floating point).

Reasons for Choosing BuilderTREND

BT gives a framework to operate and TCON needed one. It helped me with my arguments to change the estimate software as well. We got Planswift, now we moved to CostX and it is saving time and helping me to standardise products as their workbooks are really powerful.

Microsoft Project

Reasons for Switching to BuilderTREND

BT changed fees plans. Honestly, it was confusing and too expensive to use for few projects per year. We are a small company with 4-6 projects per year focusing on growth to be able to build up to 8-10 per year.

The best applications for construction Management by coordinating and integrating team tasks

The most important thing that Buildertrend helped me solve is to keep all activities up-to-date, especially for activities that are located in places far from the site offices, and it also makes me aware of all related to any activity in terms of availability of drawings, approval of materials and any other technical matters, which gives updates and reports Issued by the project management accurate and expressive.

Pros

Buildertrend that gives the user the ability to access project data and files at any time and from anywhere. Since we spend a lot of time in the site, Buildertrend helps to access the daily schedule and records through the mobile , which keeps us in constant touch with all the details and also enables us to give continuous updates on the reality of the actual works on the site.
It allows the ease of sharing information among all members of the work team, which will allow them to complete many tasks at the same time.

Cons

Buildertrend is easy to use, subscription prices are suitable for everyone and I did not encounter any technical problems during use, and the support team of Buildertrend is always ready to answer any question and provide the required assistance.

They tried - nice people. You can’t overcome poor design and development. It has to be built with ease of use being a top priority.

Pros

They are fantastic at marketing their product and putting on a good demo. Strong feature set if you can overcome a lack of flow and common sense usability.

Cons

Packed with features yet ease of use is paid no mind. I was in the software field when everything transitioned to SAS from legacy hardware. The most important factors (high level) are security, down time, make it extremely user friendly, and feature functionality (not at the risk of losing ground on a user friendly interface). Today, if one can’t jump into a software for the first time ever and make it work with ease then it has little to no value (my humble opinion). This is exactly why many companies provide only 30 or 14 day trials or less. It either meets your needs or not but if you can’t figure it out because the execution is poor and the interface is clunky, it’s not a worthwhile investment. I think this company has focused too much on marketing with social media heads like “The Build Show” for popularity and too little on development. Make it stupid simple to where a VA in the Philippines can use it with ease and no background, only then would I have interest in trialing it. Also, the mobile app should be wiped clean and redone entirely - not usable. On to the next.

Overall, Builder Trend is a phenomenal software program to keep construction projects on track. Our customers love that they have a owner's portal as well where they can view their schedule, payments, and message us with ease.

Pros

This software has been a game changer! It take a bit to learn the features but it's been a great way to keep our jobs organized. The customer service is top notch! They respond quickly and help trouble shoot.

Cons

The mobile version of Builder Trend could use a little work as there are a few features that don't work the same as the web version. I would like to see the process streamlined for entering the contract information for each customer. It's tedious and temperamental.
