Pros
Ease of use and great templates. Vendor provides excellent training and follow up.
My customers love the fact that they can log in, see all the plans/specs and track their budget. It's a good tool that exploits the professional approach we take with our projects.
We've used BuildingBlok for 5 years, and it's saved us countless hours by handling document storage, processing, transmitting etc. It's easy to use but powerful.
Cons
I dislike the difficulty to backup the information on a daily basis.
The project setup was rather cumbersome and would sometimes delay initial entry of the project.
I get the feeling that we were at the early stages of the product development. So, we ran into a few more problems using it than I thought we would.

Save time and be organized - Professional management program

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

My project is tracked with Building Blok. I like that subs can view all the project documents on the site, submit change order requests and pay apps. It's been a great system and I can't image doing commercial projects without it.

Cons

Getting small subcontractors to use Building Blok is the only challenge. I will say that when I have a contractor resisting getting logged in, I just call Building Blok and they take them step by step to get them in the system.

Project Administrator

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

It was easy to use and allowed for workflow transparency across multiple facets of the project. The administrators could easily track how items were progressing through the approval chain for existing projects and subcontractors could easily access documents for prospective projects.

Cons

The project setup was rather cumbersome and would sometimes delay initial entry of the project. A new project required entry of the contract and subcontract information and was duplicative for our company due the use of an existing accounting system. Also, we had some difficulty with the management of the approval chain process itself. Some approval aspects just couldn't be linear.

Pros

It's easy to use, and it was very affordable. They have great customer support. We were new to file sharing programs like this, and this did allow us to understand the pros and cons of using such a system, while not spending a lot of money.

Cons

I get the feeling that we were at the early stages of the product development. So, we ran into a few more problems using it than I thought we would. But again, all issues were resolved immediately.
