BuildingConnected is a great tool for construction managers and general contractors working over a wide area that rely on collecting multiple bids. BuildingConnected does a great job at presenting new contractors that may fit the bill for who you need to look at and price a job. Its simple interface allows you to easily see who the main point of contact is at a company, and place comments for your team to review after corresponding with these companies.

B2W Estimate

We are long-term users of the B2W system. We believe it is the best choice for paving contractors. It is easy to learn and continues to offer even deeper ability as estimating prowess grows. The system allows us to update quotes that were given in the past and to stay on top of our costs as changes occur, so our data is up to date and accurate. Know your costs and you can make money!

Pros

BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

  • Helps keep track of multiple jobs at once
  • Helps sort your bid invites into won/lost/pending/archived etc.
  • It is a central location where general contractors can put all their updated files and addendum
  • Lets you see which contractors are bidding the same job so you can coordinate your estimating
Matthew Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

B2W Estimate

  • Allows management to update costs for each individual item, equipment, labor, PR taxes, benefits, materials, etc.
  • Allows management to see how aggressive estimators have built an estimate to evaluate risk.
  • Allows monthly changes in fuel prices and liquid asphalt to quickly update the system for all.
  • Allows management to override margins for overhead and profit to match backlog and need for work versus budget.

Cons

BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

  • There was a previous glitch where bid forms have been updated by subcontractors that have accessed a former version are not able to access the updated/new bid form.
  • I would like to see the ability for BuildingConnected to automatically send a bid reminder to bidders at a set amount of time prior to the bid date.
Melanie Dodson | TrustRadius Reviewer

B2W Estimate

  • We request changes to the software as issues crop up and the B2W process changes as needed.
  • A time-out function should be added to knock dormant users offline and allow other users access to the limited number of licenses the company owns.

They are constantly reaching out to see if there is anything they can teach us. It can be a bit aggravating when it is constant, but I know that they have our best interest at heart. They also had all of us do multiple Skype meetings with a support rep to make sure we understood the software.

Have used BlueBook Construction, which has a smooth, quick search for local contractors. Still, they don't allow us the client project creation. I even had issues with them displaying proper project descriptions based upon was receiving inadequate and or erroneous bid proposals, and the engagement manager was not flexible in resolving the problem!
