outstanding.

Pros
We run a large franchise business across New Zealand and Australia. The fact that it is cloud based makes it very easy for us to use anywhere,anytime. I also like the team and their approach to listening closely to feedback from users, they’re always looking to improve the system.

Cons
Hard to say. The variation function is limited at times as you cant use recipes to price them up quickly.

I can now keep up with all quotes & take offs, time is saved massively! Not too mention I can attach all my contracts and save all my templates from all my suppliers, I love it!!

Pros
Keeping up with all our take offs, sending invoices/quotes etc

Cons
No iPhone app, so we can access all costings and other areas that you can from a PC, I have bookmarked the site so I have easy access to some areas of Builxact from my iPhone, that’s the only improvement I can see what will make this software

The team was really great, they got us set up with a free trial. Ultimately it wasn't a great fit for our company.

Pros
the company and people are fantastic and are certainly head in the right direction with a lot of great ideas.

Cons
The program isn't quite ready for the level of detail I would prefer to provide to construction clients
