Buildertrend was made for a specific industry (building) and so I would recommend it to anyone in that industry, with the exception of Sales and Marketing. But for everything else from the financing to the permitting to the construction and all else, Buildertrend is exactly what our team has used and will ALWAYS use. Even with our decision to use other systems for Sales and Marketing, we have never given one thought to taking Buildertrend out of our process. We will always be with Buildertrend.

We do not have Deltek + ComputerEase set up to run its full capabilities. But from what I have seen it can do, I hope we get it up to par really soon.

  • I think that the CRM component could use some development.
  • I think that tracking "tasks" or "to do's" could use some development.

Deltek + ComputerEase is a good program. I gave it a nine, only because you cannot just pick up and go with this program. You defiantly will need some training on how to use it. But it seems to be a wonderful software once used as it should be

Support Rating
Buildertrend
I highly recommend. The only suggestion I have would be to offer a free trial. They do offer a 30 day money back guarantee. The price point isn't daunting if you have had a 100 % no strings attached/no effort to cancel or try to remember to get your money back - no strings attached chance to try out the product. Especially for such a big purchase decision, I think Buildertrend would see an incredible increase in sales. They have the value and companies just need a chance to see it first hand.

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.

I used Foundations for a very long time. I did use Foundations at its full capabilities. I have not used Deltek + ComputerEase at its full capabilities yet. But so far, in my opinion, Foundations is more user friendly for people who have not been taught how to use it, than Deltek + ComputerEase is.

Return on Investment
Buildertrend
  • The prior year cost me roughly $4300, which was barely reasonable for my volume. Some clients liked the format, some hated it and didn't participate. In my experience, few subcontractors or suppliers embraced the program, severely limiting the effectiveness.
  • For the coming year the fees would have exceeded $17,000, far too much for a program with limited client, employee, and subcontractor appeal with as small a volume as I have.
  • Honestly, for the last year, I feel they've been a burning tire hung around my neck and I regret not cancelling them in early 2019, I'd have $10,000 more in my pocket and no significant negative impact.
  • I did appreciate the daily log as a way to report on progress, but less than half my clients made use of this option.
