Great product, well thought out!

Follow the guidance of the technical sales specialist and they will present the product as it relates to your company's needs. The power-point presentation will help you understand the flow of the information through the software. The customer support is always available to discuss any needs that you have. This product is a complete management tool for the entire company, not just the project manager. Simply a great product that is willing to change with the needs of the company. Very impressed.

Attempt a soft roll-out first, if possible. If you start with one project, you can get a feel for the setup and iron out any issues prior to company-wide use. Also, don't hesitate to contact the Customer Support team. They are extremely helpful and very responsive.

Save time and be organized - Professional management program

2015-09-15

Pros

I like that subs can view all the project documents on the site, submit change order requests and pay apps.

Cons

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.

When selling a project, I use this as a tool. 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.

It does everything we need it to do.

2015-01-06

Pros

A lot of construction management software has accounting ability that takes away from the main focus of what we need in the software.

Cons

I dislike the difficulty to backup the information on a daily basis.

It's got to be easy for everyone to use, like BuildingBlok is. If training is required, that's time wasted. You can use BuildingBlok intuitively.

Pros

It's easy to use, and it was very affordable.

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.
