Pros
I really appreciate the Buildern team and have really loved working with them and am happy that we have finally found a complete software solution that actually works.
From the moment I started using Buildern Software, I was impressed by its simplicity and effectiveness.
The team is responsive and quickly implements changes, improving the software and user experience. I highly recommend Buildern for anyone looking to enhance their building company's operations.
Cons
I have tried to provide the same feedback to Buildertrend in the past but it has fallen on deaf ears.
I will try to update this review once I do. I am personally used to using Microsoft Project, not sure if that makes me biased.

I think this is it.

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall I have been satisfied and truly impressed. Using buildern has improved the customer experience we have been able to provide. It has also helped improved following up with vendors and subs to push them to stick to the schedule.

Pros

The team is amazing. I think this is the first CRM/ Project management tool that has developed what they said they would. When they told me they will roll out with a automated follow up feature in a month they actually did. The tool they have built out for managing potential projects in the pipeline is great. I think it has helped us better follow up with our customers and sign more jobs possibly....

Cons

I think the scheduling tool has room for improvment. I have talked to there dev team and they have mentioned that they are working on a few features, I have not seen anything yet. I will try to update this review once I do. I am personally used to using Microsoft Project, not sure if that makes me biased. I still prefer project for scheduling.

Buildern is what we have been waiting for

Reviewed 7 months ago

Fantastic. Buildern is eager to hear our feedback on functionality and how the software is working in the field.

Pros

Buildern allows us to be more transparent with our clients and their estimates by including overheads, insurances, and builder costs as a default, rather than dispersing these genuine business costs somewhere randomly within an estimate. Buildern's method of creating an assembly is far easier than other programs I have used. The home screen is very easy to navigate. Variations are easy to create and present clearly to the client.

Cons

Some features need to be refined to make them more efficient, such as integrating timesheets into Xero, a dashboard to see the scheduling for multiple projects running simultaneously using the same trades, etc. and hopefully down a CRM.

Most versatile and complete project management software

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

The software is highly customizable and systematized to create efficient and quick project setup. Also, the client portal is clean and easy to use. The estimating and takeoff function is unique and very quick and easy to run. The development team is very helpful and open to implementing any changes or suggestions we have.

Cons

It is a young company so I was concerned about it longevity in the industry. A few of the tools still need a little bit more development.

Best All-in-one Construction Estimating & Project Management Software

Reviewed 7 months ago

It has been very positive for us to move from Buildertrend over to Buildern and our team all agree. The development team are very responsive to any suggestions, and they keep you up to speed with what is on the roadmap for Buildern

Pros

It has everything in one software. We have had to use two or more software programs to run our business until we found Buildern.

Cons

A couple of the modules require a few more features to make things more efficient however I believe these are in development now. The mobile App also requires a few more of the Online features and I understand are not far away, however all the on-site required modules are on the Mobile App for our team
