Pros

As a Rep/Consultant I find it a great CRM. Like any software, it has it's propriety aspects but as mentioned previously, once familiar with, an asset to my toolkit.
Buildertrend has been great so far and we are happy we chose to use this product. Hopefully as some of these new fixes / integrations get worked out the tool will become even more useful for us.
Buildertrend has an amazing customer support team and excellent training programs. Every issue we run into, software or user, is cleared up very quickly.

Pros

File sharing is really easy and the ability to add team members to the group with a click is great. Being able to message between team members is a useful feature.
The ease of use for both the GC and our subcontractors. Like that as a team we can view bids as they are submitted as well as see questions and the appropriate person is then able to respond quickly.
I like how user friendly it is. I also really like that each user controls their account but if I notice it's not up to date, I can make a suggestion.

Cons

I was hesitant at first due to the cost but once we started using it, we were able to instantly see the savings and value by cutting down on costly mistakes.
This went on for months before I realized it was happening. When asked them to refund the missed months before I continued with buildertrend they simply said “they can’t refund any charges.
Most of my complaints have to do with the software design, as opposed to day to day interaction. We almost never have trouble with the day to day usage.

Cons

Can be frustrating when information changes and I cannot change it but must rely on the sub or supplier to update their information which many times they do not.
The communication tends to come across to the contractors like a spam email and is ignored. I find myself needing to always follow up with a company email to get any real traction in communication.
It is not a con towards the software, rather what I dislike is that certain subcontractors do not have building connected.
