Pros

Brilliant, they really seem to focus on customer care as it was always helpful and there straight away.
Many great features but the best feature by far is its ability to organize drawings. Additionally the RFI, RFQ, and Change Event features are all great.
Was very kind, honest, and helpful when giving us information and even other options outside of Procore to help suit our needs. Easy to access and navigate.

Pros

Great array of tools to use in making the building process methodical, tools like the documents folder for all project drawings and specification are great. The integration with Xero was a big plus.
It has many great features that streamline communication with trades and help them to get paid on time. It’s a great way to organize multiple projects at a time.
As mentioned above, job costing is such a great thing that can be accomplished. Sending bills out of BT is also a great aspect of the software.

Cons

The preconstruction bidding tool is horrible and the development team is more concerned with increasing their market share than fixing problems with the tool.
Awful - horrible program that you cant even stop the stupid emails even after you tell them you want nothing to do with their program any longer. I would pay to get rid of this program.
The interface is bad for GC’s, but horrendous for subcontractors.

Cons

Unable to autosave to-do's or the daily log is obnoxious. If you accidentally close out the program you lose all data.
This isnt to blame on buildertrend its just we struggle to get our sub contractors to cooperate using our online services.
Our trades hate it because it is hard to use on their phones.

Procore

Procore is the essential tool in construction

Reviewed 5 years ago

Its great for office management of contracts, invoicing, billing, etc...

Pros

I am familiar with this product through my wife who uses in in her construction management office. We use Buildertrend which is great for Custom homes. But Procore can be applied to Track Home Construction which my company does as well.

Cons

Its a little field user friendly than Buildertrend for superintendents like me.

Chief HR Organizational Strategy

Reviewed 6 years ago

It came down between this and ProCore. ProCore was way over priced and Buildertrend was the perfect blend. Would like if the CRM function would have been a bit more robust than we had originally anticipated.

Pros

customer service and user interface. Not a straghtforward jump right in experience. There was countless calls needed with Buildertrend and the Buildertrend fols seem to shoot from the hip based on what the client is calling about. So then we have two people who don't know what they dont know trying to feel their way around.

Cons

Not straightforward. Requires a lot of conference calls with Buildertrend Customer service. Would have liked it if there was more of an Apple/Mac like experience where there is no need for a customer service or manual to determine how to use the product. Buildertrend is the closest to user friendly than the others we tested.

Vendor response

Chris - Our Customer Success Team will be in touch soon to make sure we are doing everything on our end to continue to provide great service.

A must have for construction compaines looking for productivity

Reviewed 3 years ago

Its been good so far, its cheaper than Procore and is a better fit for our company.

Pros

Great array of tools to use in making the building process methodical, tools like the documents folder for all project drawings and specification are great. The integration with Xero was a big plus.

Cons

Other platforms do a better job of marking up the drawings which allows for a better distribution to all subcontractors and stakeholders.

Vendor response

Robert, thank you for your honest review and feedback! We really appreciate it.

Buildertrend

One of the more budget friendly project management softwares

Reviewed 6 years ago

Jobs run faster, smoother, and the ability to work cooperatively with document sharing has been a game changer on many projects. Everyone is working from the same set of documents.

Pros

We work for a commercial construction company. While many GC's use Procore (a lot more money), we have found that BT does everything we need it to do. It offers cost reporting, invoicing, billing, change orders, submittals, document sharing, labor tracking, scheduling, lead management, and much more. There aren't many programs out there that will compete at this level for this price.

Cons

The lead management can be a little clunky to navigate at times. It's integration with Quickbooks could be better. The ability to batch edit clock times would be helpful if you have a larger work staff that is prone to making mistakes.
