BuilderTrend

I believe for anyone with residential remodeling or new home construction projects, BuilderTrend is the best software application I've found that keeps customers and subcontractors informed and keeps almost all of your project information organized in one location

CoConstruct

CoConstruct allows users to work with ease regarding project estimates, specifications, selections, bids, change orders, budgets, etc. with no double entry. A subscription includes the fully integrated financial system for streamlining scheduling, communication, client and subcontractor portals, files, photos, to-dos, time clock, job log, warranty, and more. The construction industry requires detailed attention to both the office and job-site. Users can easily schedule, organize and maintain information throughout the construction process. Subcontractors may require some training or orientation if they are not familiar with the software.

Pros

BuilderTrend

  • BuilderTrend is a true all-in-one solution. Other programs such as JobNimbus are extremely basic and claim they provide the same features BuilderTrend provides. In a way they do, but it's not seamless. It creates more work when the goal is to simplify redundant processes so everyone will want to participate.
  • The price point is affordable for everyone.
  • Their team works daily to make improvements based on their clients' requests.

CoConstruct

  • The BEST customer service.
  • Master for communication and organization, i.e. schedules, timelines, pictures, plans, you name it.
  • Assists with transparency for the owner, it's easy to understand as well.

Cons

BuilderTrend

  • Onsite consultants. There is a demand for this service that is great enough to allow outside BuilderTrend Super-Users like me to partner with BuilderTrend and make this a reality.
  • As their company grows, their support needs to grow as well.
  • Provide incentives for Super Users that are helping BuilderTrend acquire new business. Advocates should be their best friend.

CoConstruct

  • The mobile app could use some further development.
  • Flexible software, therefore it requires time to set up the project how you desire.
  • The integration with Quickbooks is limited.

Alternatives Considered

BuilderTrend

BuilderTrend allows me to see a full view of all my jobs in one place. I picked it for this reason. I wanted a solution that subcontractors would be able to use without having to do anything except open their email to get the information they needed to get the job done on time. I've made it so simple that everyone I work with wants to use BuilderTrend. In fact, most of the subcontractors I work with have implemented BuilderTrend because they saw how easy my day to day operations are.

CoConstruct

CoConstruct is the only single-entry estimating system that allows each user to enter a piece of information once, and have that data flow directly from the estimate, specifications, selections, bids, change orders, budgets, and to and from QuickBooks with no double entry! It also has various other capabilities as well, such as scheduling, communication, portals, files, photos, to-dos, time clock, job log, warranty and more - making it a total stand out from the competition!
