Comprehensive, Project & User Focussed Software

2016-06-23

BuilderStorm have worked hard to tailor the functionality and reporting to suit our business and projects.

Pros

Drawing, document, RFI, email, training and induction modules easy to use.

Cons

A more detailed level of control for document viewing permissions would be useful.

Recommendations to others considering BuilderStorm

Our main concern when considering BuilderStorm was whether we could realise the benefits vs the cost. However the free trial helped us to make this assessment and the benefits of improved coordination and reduced administration are already being realised. BuilderStorm has helped us to: Demonstrate of BIM Level 2 compliance. Coordinate project information for a large project (for our business) with client, project and supply chain teams at various locations. Ensures all teams are using the latest information. Reduces administration of project documentation. Integrated TFI/TQ system to record technical queries and responses.

Excellent Software and first class support

2015-09-04

Pros

They also adjusted the software to suit our methods for no extra cost.

Cons

Initally the software was quite overwhelming, lots of the elements were of no use to me, which can make things quite confusing. But I talked it through with James and got the things I didn't need turned off. It was much more straight forward then.

Make sure you ask for exactly what you want. At first the training register didnt quite work how I wanted it to, but after speaking with the guys at BuilderStorm they changed it to work exactly how I should.

Excellent and unique product for the construction industry!

2015-08-28

Pros

All hours/ wages are calculated automatically and the costs are assigned to the specific sites people have been working on. 4.

Cons

Assigning permissions to users/projects - can be confusing at first but once you use the software a few times it gets easier to use and understand 2.

This is relatively new software and the developers have designed the product focusing on our specific needs as a business. I would recommend this product to all businesses in the construction industry, it will help to streamline the way you work and the way you manage your employees and projects.

Do you really want to store these on local storage based in your offices & have to open up your private network to the rest of the Internet to provide access?

Great product and easy to work with

2017-06-21

Builderstorm went above and beyond to personalise our product and create and excellent bespoke piece that was perfect for the job as well as offering additional features that we hadn't thought about - that really enhanced the quality of the product and customer experience.

Pros

Really good product, bespoke to our needs, produced quickly and without fuss. The company is good to work with and communicate well, with good technical knowledge for a variety of topics and solutions.

Cons

It runs very well already and just think they need their name out there to get even more experience - I just think all companies benefit from expansion!
