Pros

Integration process was surprisingly painless, mobile app is great. The ease of creating, submitting, approving, and logging change orders on mobile is excellent.
It helps to be able to track the progress of project either simple or complex. It helps each residents builders to have direct report and access to projects progress.
Support has been amazing as well as all the friendly staff. Very personable and knowledgeable.

Pros

The customer success team was great at helping us onboard and integrate our current clients/projects into Jobtread. They care about our success and go above and beyond.
I love the support team who is extremely kind and loves to help out. The way the tabs are set up leads to easy learning and great experience.
Excellent training videos. Accessible dedicated customer support manager, dedicated to our team, who is extremely knowledgeable of the software.

Cons

Also the estimating inputting seems to be a struggle. Maybe its that we are new but going from Estimate to SOV to whatever is next is a struggle and we still dont have it down.
Difficult to set up and use. Integration and transferring from screen to screen and phase to phase crazy.
Very rude customer service. Huge mistake trying this company.

Cons

The only negative thing I can say about JobTread is that I did not find them sooner, it would have saved me hours of frustration and thousands of dollars.
They are listening to their users, asking questions and then implementing what's needed or missing. I've used several different Construction Management systems over the years.
I have some difficulties with Invoicing but have figured out some work around that works for me.

Software that just works

Reviewed 2 months ago

Customer support is amazing! Any question or problem can be answered and overcome.

Pros

JobTread runs FAST! Little to no lag time. If you are currently using Contractor Foreman you understand what I mean.... The JobTread team has made it simple to get started and the growth/add ons are planned and well thought out prior to implementation.

Cons

Still awaiting some better customization of bid packages, layouts, etc. Dont like that everything has to start as a "Job" using job numbers instead of estimates becoming a job.

Vendor response

Brandon, I am happy you have enjoyed the switch to JobTread! We are built on very modern technology which allows us to be super fast and also make constant improvements to meet our customer needs! I will pass your feedback about the customization and job numbering to the devs! Thank you for being part of the JobTread Family!

I hated all of the other options.

Reviewed 6 months ago
Pros

I tried BuilderTrend, Contractor Foreman, BuildBook, and others. I hated them. Almost immediately. Clunky, poor integrations, not enough features, the thought of “how am I ever going to get our staff to implement this”. Not a single thought like that with JT. JobTread has an easier to use platform and BT and CF and, in most cases, more features. The system is intuitive - hour(s) were saved in the import alone vs BT and CF. Our staff was up and running within days. In its day to day use it is already • Saving time • Improving documentation • Increasing client participation through the portal • No more spreadsheets. JT does everything I need. Plus constant product updates and a Facebook group where the staff is constantly interacting and helping other. Owner of Old Home Rescue

Cons

That I didn’t find it earlier and trust what others were saying about their jump from the other companies mentioned.

Vendor response

Morgan, we're so happy to hear you've had such a positive experience with JobTread! Thank you for being part of the JobTread family!

Amazing Customer Service

Reviewed 3 years ago

First class operation from the Top down. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has been awesome to work with, I look forward to working with the JobTread team for years to come.

Pros

The ability to have custom fields that can be tailored to how you want to use the software. The overall flexibility of the system, every company is different, but most software companies figure that we(the users) will adapt to their software. The best part about this software is simple, if you have a problem, suggestion, or even simple question they will listen to you. You are not left to figure things out on your own. I have worked with some the most popular software companies out there, they are happy to take your money and they will explain how to use their system "Their Way". JobTread has done a great job of seeing things through the eyes of a contractor and not through the eyes of a software developer.

Cons

The only negative thing I can say about JobTread is that I did not find them sooner, it would have saved me hours of frustration and thousands of dollars.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review! We are so glad that JobTread has helped save you time and money without the need to change your business practices. We can't wait to continue adding features that help you be even more successful!
