BuildIT Systems overview

BuildIT Systems is a web-based construction scheduling and planning system for contractors and construction companies. The platform offers tools for scheduling tasks and jobs, assigning tasks, managing contacts, tracking appointments, creating to-do lists, managing documents, maintaining communication with customers, and more. BuildIT is designed to offer contractors within the construction industry an all-in-one scheduling and project management tool with online access to job and client data.

BuildIT facilitates scheduling, organization, and communication in regards to construction jobs within small to mid-sized commercial, residential, and specialty trade contractors. The calendar, Gantt chart, and list views give users flexibility in how they organize and track their upcoming jobs and tasks. Schedules can be built from scratch or using one of BuildIT’s preloaded templates which can be customized to suit business needs. Users can add, reschedule, and cancel jobs from one central dashboard, and gain an instant overview of past and upcoming jobs using the color-coded Gantt chart view. Any changes to scheduled tasks or jobs trigger automatic notifications to those involved, including workers and clients.

Employees can benefit from BuildIT’s to-do lists which provide an overview of assigned jobs in one view. Jobs can be worked through in order of priority and employees can mark jobs as complete or update the status in real time as they work through tasks. An unlimited number of notes can be added to jobs and notes can be tracked by job name or contact, aiding communication between team members and collaborators.

It has improved communication between sub-contractor, site supervisors and Longwood in many ways.

I've been using BuildIT for over 10 years. It's user friendly and priced right. It simplifies the daily monitoring of our construction schedules.. Those schedules can be copied from templates and modified if needed with BuildIT. They have a library of documents that helps me save time and are easy to use and share with our sub-contractors and employees. BuildIT can add or modify documents to your needs. It also gives our sub-contractor access to all the files and tasks related to each jobs. Like working drawings, sketches and changes. They have the option to add notes to the tasks and upload files, inspections reports and more by them selves. I had an option designed by BuildIT that gives all my sub-contractors access to enter the names and informations of their employees. They can also keep records of the Health and Safety trainings required by law and upload copies of their certificates on BuildIT. You can set up BuildIT to give full access to every site supervisors, of all the schedules, documents of every jobs under construction. With the links tagged to every sub-contractor's contact info, my site supervisors have access to all their required documents needed on site when having the Ministry of Labour doing site inspections, like, form 1000 and all the required Health ' Safety trainings. Cust service has always being there to help me when I had issues which was very rare or when they have designed new options for our needs.

The ease of being able to see where a job is in the build process. Having all the files accessible to the rest of the staff without having to go to a hard file down the hall, that takes to much time. This program has been a huge benefit to our company AND the support team is great to help anytime.

This is a great program, and the folks that built it really care about my success. You rarely, rarely, find that kind of service in today's electronic market. The product itself is so easy to implement, you can be running a major operation within a day or two, with a very short learning curve. And in the long term, the web-based back up of our data helps me sleep at night. Being able to access what we had scheduled in the past within a minute or two is great. I highly recommend the program.

This software enables me to keep everything organized within the company. We keep all our files, emails, work orders etc. all on Build-it. This way everyone can access everything whenever they want. Eliminates trying to find old files in a filing cabinet or a box somewhere.
