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.

Top Choice Project Management Software

Reviewed a month ago

My experience with Buildern has been extremely positive. The software is intuitive and easy to learn, and the support team is always available, providing immediate assistance for any questions I've had. This has enabled a smooth transition from my previous software.

Pros

Buildern is an excellent construction management software that consistently updates and refines features based on user feedback. 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

Some features are still in the development stages.

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

All-in-one construction project management at its best!

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

The standout feature for me is undoubtedly their estimation tool. With just a few clicks, I can transform project plans into comprehensive estimates, complete with material and labor costs. What truly sets it apart, though, is how it allows me to personalize these estimates to my clients' specifications with remarkable ease. As for managing my network of subcontractors and suppliers, Buildern centralizes...

Cons

If there's one aspect I'm eager to see evolve, it's the range of features within Buildern's mobile application. The current convenience it offers for on-site management is quite remarkable. However, having a more comprehensive set of Buildern's functionalities available on the mobile platform would greatly enhance the flexibility and freedom to manage projects on the move.

Exceeds Buildertrend

Reviewed 3 months ago

From the moment I started using Buildern Software, I was impressed by its simplicity and effectiveness. As someone who's been in the construction industry for years, finding a software solution that seamlessly integrates into our workflow was a must. We have been using Buildertrend for several years, and when I started using Buildern I was amazed at how much better it was than Buildertrend. No...

Pros

A comprehensive project management software that actually does what you need it to do!

Cons

I honestly can't really report anything that I dislike about Buildern. The few little items that I have provided Buildern feedback on have been rectified by them almost immediately!

A Complete Revelation

Reviewed 2 years ago

So, guys I really recommend this thing. Even decided to switch to the professional plan. Well, I don't know - the number of clients is increasing, I think we need it already. We'll see...

Pros

Honestly, for me, this software was a complete revelation. 8 months ago my uncle and I started our construction business, and on the advice of his friend we decided to try the Buildern's free package first, and after we switched to Starter Plan. In general, we are satisfied. Of course, there are still things to be improved, but for now, we are totally OK with this thing. And look at the price! Man,...

Cons

Sometimes things get complicated, mostly when it comes to formatting. For sure, I would like to have a much easier approach here. But as I mentioned, it feels like the devs are working on the product and they do follow the feedback. This is very nice news for the users. I hope they will read my review too.

Intuitive, all the right features

Reviewed 8 months ago

Buildern is exactly what we've been looking for. All the crucial features required for residential construction and renovation, easy for everyone to use... Feels like it's been developed by builders who know what we actually need.

Pros

A well organised app with features you actually need. Caters for all my team, from builder and tradies to apprentices. Easy to share relevant information with those who need it - building schedule, plans etc. So far time saved on timesheets and daily briefings. Well done developers, highly recommend.

Cons

I guess the interface could be a little more jazzy but that's splitting hairs.

Buildern is great

Reviewed 8 months ago

I don't have any problems being resolved at the moment; any minor issues I previously had were resolved promptly by the developers.

Pros

Buildern incorporates everything to manage a project in to one piece of software. It is easy to use/navigate and is very intuitive. Being able to file all selections for a project is a huge bonus; like photos, spec sheets and weblinks; this makes it easy to share this information with a client.

Cons

Nothing to dislike with Buildern it is continually improving and I am looking forward to seeing new features as they are rolled out.

Amazing software!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Our small team used Buildern during the pandemic when we worked from home. But as soon as we return to the office, we continue to use this beast for 100%.

Pros

I really like the scheduling module. I create schedule items very easily, I can change them whenever I want. I also use the Deppendency set function very often when planning, and it seems good to me. But my favorite feature is Bildern's reminders. Through them, I can send notifications to my teammates and subcontractors before starting work. One of the sexiest options of Buildern is its customizability. There...

Cons

One of the cons is the absence of the mobile app. Well, you know, you don't always have a computer on hand, but it happens that you have to take urgent action. The mobile app is extremely important

We finally found Buildern

Reviewed a year ago

We are now fully running our business on Buildern and it is a abreath of fresh air not having to use different Estimating software and project management software.

Pros

Wee've struggled to find an all-in-one Estimating & Project Management Software over the years to run our business on, but we've finally found it

Cons

We would love to have a Take-off tool for our Estimating, and we just found out that the Buildern Developers have this in production

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

The first thing I really like here is that you can manage existing projects and opportunities. As soon as the contract is signed, all the info is automatically copied into the project and you don't need to fill up the data manually. The second cool thing is that you can estimate budgets and actual job costs ․ This is a very important function. Whether there is a change in the material prices or some...

Cons

The scheduling tool is very functional, but it could be improved.
