Customer service is the main target for organisations where Buildsoft global is the perfect software. I am totally amused by this software. Cost accounting of the organisation can be easily done which is helping most. Sometimes it is lacking some criteria. With this software, we can not enter the total journal entries which are making some problems. However, it is great software.

Fieldwire
We used Fieldwire to increase our overall productivity for our engineers and for our installers and techs in the field, so our techs could have everything in front of them when needed. Sometimes the software can be dependent on cell service and when in a remote construction area it becomes hard to pull the information.

Fieldwire customer service is exceptional. They are always looking to grow, learn and take feedback from users to make their software the best it can be. They have taken feedback from us, worked with us on how to best implement and incorporate our ideas and work quickly with their software engineers to implement the feedback into the software. They are willing to make changes quickly and are not shy in asking your opinion.
