BRIX Feature Reviews

JANE SCHWAB

Past experience with BRIX

2020-02-25

It made my daily job much easier to have this program track all of our houses in a project.

Pros

You could track each house and payment in one program

Cons

I had no issue with BRIX, the only reason we changed is that the builder we work for changed software and then I believe the Software provider bought BRIX.

Seth, thank you for your review of BRIX! We are glad to see that you have found BRIX easy to use.

Our Hyphen team is currently working to improve our dashboard features in BRIX. Also, Hyphen just announced our partnership with informXL in June 2020. When the integration of BRIX and informXL's Analyzer is complete, BRIX customers will have the ability to create highly customized reports, charts, graphs and data pivots. We have provided your feedback to our Customer Experience team.

Solid Program and Great Customer Service

2020-05-18

Once we finally get all the way through our learning curve and have a meaningful batch of homes originated from BRIX (and not converted over), I know we will also realize increased efficiency on price control, variance reporting and other quantifiable data.

Pros

I love the ease of Excel export of any table and the large amount of programming.

Cons

The only piece not well-executed was an incomplete system for integrating with our accounting program.

Breath of fresh software....

2018-07-19

Pros

The ease of producing reports and the number of reports it produces.

Cons

The requirement of internet explorer to run it. I have Apple devices that I use for work so it becomes difficult and inconvenient when I have to use other devices just to log into BRIX.

Art Vasquez

Homebuilder Software Package

2020-05-27

Pros

I like the integration of BRIX Sales and BRIX Field using one data base.

Cons

We are using BRIX Field and like this feature because we are a custom builder and this is more of what we need.

Brix

2018-07-23

We are a local mid-sized home builder that uses Brix for our accounting and purchasing systems. Brix has served us well in both areas and is a really good value for the amount of features it has.

Pros

- Has all the major features a home builder needs in a accounting/purchasing system - Cloud based so there is no risk of losing data and everything is saved automatically - Excellent value compared to other systems

Cons

- Takes some time to get familiar with how the system works - Documentation is sparse on some items

Good but not great

2020-05-08

We have really enjoyed working with the Brix team. We feel like the sales team over promised on a lot of features that aren't as robust as originally represented. The implementation team has been fantastic. Support team is very slow to respond, if we ever get a response.

Pros

We love that accounting is integrated and the back office system is very solid and stable.

Cons

The integration with BuildPro hasn't been as seamless and user friendly as we had anticipated.

Love!

2019-12-19

I've never had any serious issues. Some here and there, but customer support and the team are always so helpful and quick to fix issues that may arise!

Pros

It is so easy to use.

Cons

I feel like it's hard to know everything the system can do. I work very fluently in BRIX- but I am still learning new ways to do things on a daily basis!
