Pros

The ease of creating a quote, changing it to an invoice once the client has accepted it, is a great add on. The ability to add inventory items on the fly is very welcoming.
Finances are easier to keep up to date and more frequently, the software updates are seamless, the reports are great, the integrations are outstanding, and the service is super.
On the dashboard you can see clearly, outstanding invoices and overdue invoices. This is essential for our team to access these numbers quickly and clearly.

Pros

Buildertrend has been great so far and we are happy we chose to use this product. Hopefully as some of these new fixes / integrations get worked out the tool will become even more useful for us.
Buildertrend has an amazing customer support team and excellent training programs. Every issue we run into, software or user, is cleared up very quickly.
I love the way it looks and how easy it is to use. I also like how we can attach images so that we can have an up-to-date place for the appropriate people to check on progress.

Cons

Remember clear that when there was some technical problem the take no accountability. First It made me angry but then everything arranged.
Constant problems with integrated software for synching with bank & transactions. EXTREMELY poor customer service and it's ALWAYS the other software regardless of the problem.
There is no simple customer sales reports available. Quite ridiculous for a financial platform.

Cons

This went on for months before I realized it was happening. When asked them to refund the missed months before I continued with buildertrend they simply said “they can’t refund any charges.
Most of my complaints have to do with the software design, as opposed to day to day interaction. We almost never have trouble with the day to day usage.
This isnt to blame on buildertrend its just we struggle to get our sub contractors to cooperate using our online services.
