Pros

It is a full enterprise system, it has a nice owner dashboard. The job costing is great and the report writer is also good.

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.

RM

Robert M.

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.

JH

Joshua H.

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.

SN

Susan N.

Cons

Everything else about this software is bad. The customer service us horrible, the accounting system has glitches all the time, Information is hard to find in all of the menus they list.

To add a cost in the PO and then have to change it in the parts master is ridiculous; it should update automatically.

EN

Erik N.

Another negative is that they are a Canadian company and the way they perform some of their business practices are different than what we perform. The function and terminology is different.

DG

Dave G.

Cons

Unable to autosave to-do's or the daily log is obnoxious. If you accidentally close out the program you lose all data.

CH

Chris H.

This isnt to blame on buildertrend its just we struggle to get our sub contractors to cooperate using our online services.

GM

Greg M.

Our trades hate it because it is hard to use on their phones.

Great for job tracking and costing; Lacks on Enterprise reporting

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall very good, except for Enterprise reporting. Also, my rep initially was very good loved. Had a few that made me seem undervalued. LOVE the call and talk to a person anytime. Love that they will spend time with my new employees.

Pros

We use BuilderTrend to run all our custom home jobs. It is great and links very well with Quickbooks. Very happy about job control and able to keep schedules and costs.

Cons

The main issue is looking across jobs. I have the CFO position and I want to be able to run trends across jobs and collect data across them. I want to predict cash flow, run historical reports across jobs and dive into cost code data. All of this needs to be done manually in EXCEL. I've talked to ​our reps about this but always get a wall. With as large as BT is, I can't be the only company that needs this.
