Pros

Great array of tools to use in making the building process methodical, tools like the documents folder for all project drawings and specification are great. The integration with Xero was a big plus.
It has many great features that streamline communication with trades and help them to get paid on time. It’s a great way to organize multiple projects at a time.
As mentioned above, job costing is such a great thing that can be accomplished. Sending bills out of BT is also a great aspect of the software.

Pros

The program has been really great for improving our tracking and management of changes and decisions. The software continues to improve and add features, which is great and the support is excellent.
It's also great to know that they are continually working to improve this software to make it even more user friendly for construction companies.
Not all clients will use it, but those who do love it. We use the mobile app on our iPhones and it's great to add quick notes in the field or look up important information.

Cons

Unable to autosave to-do's or the daily log is obnoxious. If you accidentally close out the program you lose all data.
This isnt to blame on buildertrend its just we struggle to get our sub contractors to cooperate using our online services.
Our trades hate it because it is hard to use on their phones.

Cons

We were looking to eliminate places of duplicate entry - not create more. Document management is horrible.
Time to finally transition to ProCore and let Co-Construct keep their mess. I rather pay the higher fee for a service that won't drive away my customers.
Problems with entering taxes. Uses a text format rather than Word in Proposal/Estimate section.

Builder Trend Review from and established Custome Builder

Reviewed 6 months ago

It has been disappointing. If you are a Coconstruct user I would recommend you wait as long as you can and then either switch to Builder Trend or at that point maybe there will be some better software in the marketplace. Six months in, and tens of thousands of dollars implementing we are 50/50 on whether we will keep it. We keep trying to find work around. We have 10 people on our team and no one...

Pros

The product does look good and they seem well capitalized which bodes well for their longevity. They also bought the software that we used, CoConstruct, and had said they were going to merge the two, taking the best of both software.

Cons

We moved from CoConstruct. Buildertrend has a ton of features but it is not intuitive and does not tie together well. It is a mile wide but an inch thick. It is not designed for the Custom Home Builder, it is for a production Builder software. It does not tie well to Quickbooks either. Overall Builder Trend has lots of features, but they "live" in different silos and one function does not communicate well with the other function. The estimate software is bad, and way too complicated. You cannot condense multiple estimate lines into love category, etc.... The specifications tab does not translate to the selections. You cannot add attachments to the specifications. CoConstruct was a beautiful software that worked wonderfully and was design to be efficient. Builder Trend is not.

Vendor response

Hi John. We really appreciate you taking the time to provide this feedback. Please reach out to our team when you get a chance. We'd love to see how we can better support you through the transition from CoConstruct to Buildertrend.

Great software but Other software gives you a better value

Reviewed 4 years ago

Was a good experience and if we hadn’t been introduced to competitor then we would not have switched.

Pros

We really liked the idea of builder trend. It has bidding technology that allows you to get your subs to bid a project. It allows you to send proposals to clients. This is a game changer for any construction company that currently has no software in place.

Cons

The pricing is pretty high for what is included. We were introduced to a competitors app (coconstruct) that allows you to dig into the numbers on a price per square foot level. This is much more valuable to our company and allows us to make changes that help our company grow

CoConstruct - Great software becoming extinct

Reviewed a year ago

overall it has been great and the same people are moving to BuilderTrend, which is what we will do.

Pros

Great software before BuilderTrend bought it and abandoned it.

Cons

It has been bought out by BuilderTrend and they are abandoning it. They will continue to support, but no more money will be put in the product.

CoConstruct has benefited our Company

Reviewed 7 years ago

Overall, we are glad we made the switch. The comparsion between BuilderTrend and Construct is close.... We have not use the estimating tools yet as we still use excel. Plan to make the change soon... This could be the tool that sets CoConstruct apart from BuilderTrend....

Pros

The Gantt chart is first rate in scheduling. If you are a MicroSoft project user, this is a perfect fit. Customers seem to like it so far as does the sub Contractor base. We ended up making a switch from BuilderTrend to CoConstruct mostly due to the scheduling features.... BuilderTrend lacked Subtask in the Gantt chart viewing each task as a separate line item. I want to total duration of the foundation installation with each subtask involved. Not just have Foundation as a single task....... outside of those few items, everthing is worked good. I would definitely recommend trying to see if it fits your needs........

Cons

Expensive compared to BuilderTrend but worth the extra for the addtional Gantt functions. No way of tracking sub contractor insurance certificate expirations under the vendor section. CoConstruct said set up as individual "ToDo's". No thank you...... Lastly document management seems a little cumbersome. Requires searching through allot of files to find a files. You can filter by apppling a tag but if the sub doesnt know how you tagged it, the search can be frustrating. That is the feedback we have gotten from the subs.

Best bang for your money!!

Reviewed 7 years ago

I will be using this system over the other because of their pricing structure. BuilderTrend did not put a lot of thought into their pricing structure so in my opinion the cost outweighs its value.

Pros

Pricing structure makes the most sense which in the end is cheaper than others and does pretty much the same things just in a different way. Customer support is awesome!! They want to help and it shows.

Cons

No data base in which stores items according to accounting codes, descriptions and pricing so whan you have to add something you have to comeup with it all on the fly.

They live up to their promises, and the features they promise, actually work

Reviewed 6 years ago

I've been through it with other software. Specifically stay away from UDA Construction Suite -- they have so many annoying quirks you won't believe it, and if you have any questions or problems, they'll basically tell you that you are the "only one" who has ever had a problem before. BuilderTrend has great customer service, but, they over-promise on many features and caused DAYS of stress and heartache for my office manager to straighten out financials. Go with Co-Construct because they are successful with all the features they promise.

Pros

The features they have all work. Their customer service is organized, prompt, and successful in helping us. They are constantly doing improvements and tweaks.

Cons

There are a few features that it doesn't have, but the fact is, what they have, work properly! You can count on what they say to be true.

CoConstruct is a great match for our Home Building and Remodeling business

Reviewed 7 years ago

We worked with BuilderTREND for several years but were not using all the features and were not super happy. We took a look and CoConstruct and found it to be much better suited for our entire company. I work with the scheduling all the time now with all our projects - large and small. My son Paul and I use the estimating to generate proposals and budgets and Paul is starting to use all the financial components to tie into Quickbooks. He even is starting to push time clock hours into Quickbooks for payroll. Our field people love the To-Do and the schedules.

Pros

I personally love the scheduling. Easy to move around and update. The fact that the selection deadlines tie into the schedule is a great feature.

Cons

It was great being able to work in person with the CoConstruct people during CoCamp. I wish St. Louis was much closer to Virginia so we could go back for some more one on one.

Overal great value for the money, lacking a some robust features

Reviewed 7 years ago

Customer service is truly top notch, any questions whatsoever they will walk you through. Definitely take the training because some of the features are a bit difficult to understand without a coach guiding you. They do not charge for training. Overall its an "OK" platform, good value and somewhat easy to use. The features it is missing compared to BuilderTrend somewhat justifies the price difference....

Pros

The price is better than the competition, unlimited prospects, unlimited in warranty statuses. There is a customer portal however it is lacking features. site design is simple, relatively easy to use.

Cons

Features are a little light compared to builder trend. Selection process is really painstaking No import option for price catalogues or bidding software i.e. ClearEstimates Plan "rooms" are difficult because you need to have separate files in multiple locations for various people. Ideally having a file i.e. blueprint and setting permissions would be the easier option.
