BuildingConnected, an Autodesk product

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.

  • Well suited: distributing information and collecting and keeping data
  • Less suited: quickly trying to process something or get info to subs

  • Change orders: great way to send and document official communications to subs and clients.

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

Prolog

  • A lot of steps, tad confusing
  • Very in-depth, not necessarily a con, but requires a lot of information

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!

Procore is what I currently use. It is good, they are both efficient and very good products. They both have their flaws, but they do what they are there to do and in a smart manner. Great way to effectively distribute and have all information readily available in your hand at all times.

  • Positive: kept jobs running smoothly, awesome tool to track and oversee projects
  • Negative: not much really, good tool, just very in-depth with information that is needed to fill in documentation
