Pros

This software is a good tool to aid in estimating. Lots of useful tools and accurate, with various costs being consolidated in a timely fashion.
The ability to produce estimates much more accurately and quickly has been useful.
Customer service is awesome. After getting the proper training it is easier to use and there are plenty of videos to help if a problem arises.

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

You only get one license, it is very confusing if there is no training, it is not user friendly, the cost is very high and to maintain the software up to date is costly.
Back up service in Australia is poor referring you to a contact in Brisbane which is pretty useless when your in Perth.
Fairly dumb program in that to do a complete build up estimate you Either have to pay another 4K for quick bid or develop a excel spreadsheet and live link the data which is sometime temperamental.

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.

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.

Pros

after setting up the recipes for regular used items I found it so easy to use

Cons

the software is a little slow, when you are trying to do things quickly, the program tells you to slow down. this is then you are using quick features like setting tasks in scheduling

Buildxact - Estimating made easy

Reviewed a year ago

We have had no issues with buildxact and now have futile licences and users

Pros

Its very quick and easy to generate professionals looking quotes, You need to do all the estimating to get your pricing and in the click of a button you have a quote

Cons

I feel there needs to be some more client notes tracking ability, Its not quite a one stop shop for construction businesses

Easy Estimating

Reviewed a year ago

Easy estimation production that has saved us hundreds of hours over the past few years. Also pricing client variations and options is easy. I though our last estimating product was quick and easy to use until we trialed BuildXact.

Pros

Easy and intuitive to use, simple import plans and scaling. Its also easy to used similar quotes as templates.

Cons

Labeling all the plan pages takes a while, but once that is done then your off to the races.

Vendor response

Thanks, John for the great feedback.
