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 customer success team was great at helping us onboard and integrate our current clients/projects into Jobtread. They care about our success and go above and beyond.
I love the support team who is extremely kind and loves to help out. The way the tabs are set up leads to easy learning and great experience.
Excellent training videos. Accessible dedicated customer support manager, dedicated to our team, who is extremely knowledgeable of the software.

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

The only negative thing I can say about JobTread is that I did not find them sooner, it would have saved me hours of frustration and thousands of dollars.
They are listening to their users, asking questions and then implementing what's needed or missing. I've used several different Construction Management systems over the years.
I have some difficulties with Invoicing but have figured out some work around that works for me.

Best construction software

Reviewed 2 years ago

Best construction software on the market. We've been a Buildertrend user for 6 years and Jobtread is faster, more responsive and more intuitive for all users from subs to project managers. Best of all they actually listen and respond to their customers feedback and regularly release improvements. Their financial first focus made the decision easy for us to switch so we can see our job costing all in once place.

Pros

The interface is clean and the user experience is excellent. The layout is very intuitive and well thought out.

Cons

They are still missing a few key features, but nothing that would stop you from using it.

Vendor response

We appreciate you taking time to write a review and are glad that your transition to JobTread has been valuable for your business. Please don't hesitate to let us know of any additional features you would find helpful and we'll be sure to include them in our feature request list!

JobTread

I hated all of the other options.

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

I tried BuilderTrend, Contractor Foreman, BuildBook, and others. I hated them. Almost immediately. Clunky, poor integrations, not enough features, the thought of “how am I ever going to get our staff to implement this”. Not a single thought like that with JT. JobTread has an easier to use platform and BT and CF and, in most cases, more features. The system is intuitive - hour(s) were saved in the import alone vs BT and CF. Our staff was up and running within days. In its day to day use it is already • Saving time • Improving documentation • Increasing client participation through the portal • No more spreadsheets. JT does everything I need. Plus constant product updates and a Facebook group where the staff is constantly interacting and helping other. Owner of Old Home Rescue

Cons

That I didn’t find it earlier and trust what others were saying about their jump from the other companies mentioned.

Vendor response

Morgan, we're so happy to hear you've had such a positive experience with JobTread! Thank you for being part of the JobTread family!

The Absolute Best Construction Management Platform

Reviewed 2 years ago

JobTread and their whole organization are absolutely amazing. I’m a huge supporter of everything they’re doing and continually creating.Their platform is an integral part of my business and has been one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made. Also, the customer service experience that JobTread offers is uniquely outstanding. Especially the help section inside the application. It’s been a phenomenal...

Pros

The project management, estimating, and CRM features within JbTread are all insanely beneficial to the successful operation of my business.

Cons

No cons at all... The fact that JobTread is consistently growing, scaling, and tweaking its software leaves me confident that, if I did come across something that I didn't like, my concern would be immediately addressed and rectified with my ultimate satisfaction in mind.

Vendor response

Thank you so much for your review, Julian! It's contractors like you who make us push to new heights each day. We're so glad you're a part of our JobTread family!
