    Pros
    They take all the wish list from users and continue to improve which is awesome knowing it will grow as we grow.
    Easy to do take offs and manipulate the software to your individual requirements. The support teams are great, always ready to help you and assist you in getting the most out of the software.
    My overall experience with Buildxact is great. Estimates are Professional and build confidence in your clients.
    Cons
    Inability to adjust purchase orders once created (need to delete and go again). Not having a take off tool once the job goes past estimate stage.
    Could have smoother transition between estimate and invoice. Should be in same drop down box.
    I spend less time in the office and more time on the tools and having a clod beer after a hard day.

    Highly recommend

    Reviewed a year ago

    We can easily keep on-top of all variations, invoicing, and schedules - also keeping a track of job costs via purchase orders has been really beneficial.

    Pros

    Being able to upload all types of plans and the ease of measuring up complex projects.

    Cons

    The Variation forms would be much better if you could list/add 'Actual Cost' items after the variation has been made up. (if something was accidentally missed) Being unable to export screen shots to show trades certain areas of what we have allowed etc.

    Vendor response

    Thanks for using Buildxact Leigh!

    Continually Evolving

    Reviewed a year ago

    It has been a great product to help our company grow and is continually evolving and improving, the customer support is excellent. It was a little learning curve at the being but is definitely a case of short term pain for long term gain

    Pros

    It has systemised our quoting process, which speeds up our quote time, which leaves more time for project management and sales. We can produce extremely professional quotes now which include all the products we have allowed for so the clients and my team know exactly what they are getting

    Cons

    Integration with building suppliers in NZ isn't available yet but I believe this will come in due time. The client portal is quite cumbersome and I don't like the fact that we don't have control over this once it's set up. Manual inputting of supplier invoices can take some time The scheduling tool can be a bit of a pain to use and doesn't look very nice, an upgrade to this would be great

    Vendor response

    Thanks for the feedback George.

    Bx

    Reviewed 10 months ago
    Pros

    The set out and ease of use is good. The take off allows for basic functions and calculations. Job control is good

    Cons

    Bx Has some annoying traits Take off is slow when a decent template is used. You have to go in and out of the take off for every item. The program basically shuts down by8:30 , 9pm and is useless. the email functions eg emailing Po's from the system are so unreliable that we don't use them. We save and email from outlook. The client portal is not very good and we are not using it. POs cant be ordered by supplier which is very annoying. Invoices get scrambled if you try to move the order.

    Abroenet Constructions - BX review

    Reviewed 7 months ago

    It has been a great addition to my business with its integration to xero and deputy.

    Pros

    I love the estimating, the take off tool within the estimating section. Its easy to convert a quote to a project. It links to my suppliers pricing which means i should always have the most up to date pricing avaialble

    Cons

    Dont like that you pay per user, not just per account. Or have a residential package to suit up to 5 users say. The timeline scheduling, unless I'm not using correctly is difficult to edit and frustrating so i dont use it like i probably should. Love that it links to xero and Deputy

    Making Life easier

    Reviewed a year ago

    Could not be happier with BuildXact and get really good feed back from clients and our accountant team

    Pros

    From tracking quotes, to take offs and organizing your quote in a professional way, to sending purchase orders and tracking your project to the cent, BuildXact is by far the best value for money estimating/project management software on the market.

    Cons

    The scheduling is a bit clunky in comparison to MS Project

    Vendor response

    Thanks for your great feedback.
