    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.

    builder use

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    We absolutely love Build xact, it's not perfect for my individual desires but it sure does capture my needs in a massive way, we can't imagine operating without it now. there is nothing like being certain on your pricing when negotiating with clients and subbies, it puts you in such a more powerful position and takes away a lot of the stress

    Pros

    I love the take off tools and the ease of generating a quotation, it allows me to get ontop of pricing and take offs and the ability to calculate variations based off of subcontractors m2 rates without waiting for my subbies to get back to me is invaluable. also when entering the line items I love that it can allow me to add in a picture into the specifications so that my client knows exactly what products are included in my quote and it also gives me to option to nominate items as provisional costs or provisional sums at the click of a button further more, I can select if the item is a task in the schedule so I have the ease of generating a gannt chart as i go with little to no down time so when I submit my quote I know exactly how long I need to build.

    Cons

    overall they have captured everything well and the only items I dont like are some of the little bugs that come with developing such a great software such as: 1. I would like a little more functionality in the plan scaling section. 2. The RFQ's tie themselves to line items and can't be adjusted without deleting the RFQ's or overriding them manually 3. All RFQ's have to be tied to a Job, you can't...

    Pretty good. Limitations have been picked up with complimentary apps. Needs iOS asap.

    Pros

    Great estimating tool. Quick, easy, intuitive take offs

    Cons

    No iOS app. Very restrictive on site. The recipe tool is very powerful for quoting but not transferred to the job for variation management.

    Vendor response

    Thanks for the feedback Blake, and for using Buildxact for your business.

    Buildxact Review

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Two thumbs up! It has significantly increased my productivity through decreasing the estimation and job management process. I spend less time in the office and more time on the tools and having a clod beer after a hard day!

    Pros

    Buildxact is a simple but powerful estimating and job management tool. It has basic CRM functionality that enables the management of leads within the program. The ease take off tool is simple and when combined with the recipes makes the complex quite easy. Building recipes is easy to do and the supplied videos quide you through the process. The other huge time saver is the integration of the software with supplier catalogues. I don't spend anywhere near as much time manually entering items and prices and they are now always up to date.

    Cons

    There is nothing really diffcult withe the program. If they could improve one thing it is the ability to truly customise the quote cover in a simple manner. The advanced editing feature is a little too complex and even with the help of one of the trainers we couldn't get it to jump through the hoops we wanted. The cover still looks a million bucks - I would just like to tweak it a little more than the system allows.

    Vendor response

    Thanks for the review Craig.
