    Constellation HomeBuilder Systems

    BuildTopia is ideal for bringing all components of the sales and construction process together for any homebuilder. If you're looking for a platform that also incorporates a robust CRM component, which is key for strong sales efforts, you'll likely need to utilize another platform in conjunction with BT for the best results

    eTakeoff

    When quoting projects are required where there is not much time and more precision is required. In these circumstances eTakeoff is spectacular. And it allows to integrate with BIN systems to have a better performance. The important thing is also that it does not limit you when making the necessary estimates.

    Pros

    Constellation HomeBuilder Systems

    • BuildTopia excels at contract management. Every part of the contract process is able to be managed electronically from initial signing to closing, and can even handle more special cases like contingencies.
    • BuildTopia manages all of our construction efforts well. All of our floorplans are pre-build in the system, so all we have to do is go in an build out the construction schedule from a pre-made template, and make any alterations from there.
    • The selections process is always a headache, but BuildTopia makes it pretty painless. Everything is loaded right in to the system while making selections with the client, and more detailed things, like non-standard options, are easy to load in and process.

    eTakeoff

    • Client Server Solutions that allows to work simultaneously on the several footprints projects
    • Integration with Construction Management Software's like Sage 300 CRE - Estimating
    • Compatible with mobile devices like Microsoft Surface
    • Savings upon the printing process to start the measurement phase
    • Simplifies the amount of materials with only a pack of PDF footprints, granting the calculation of the material lists

    Cons

    Constellation HomeBuilder Systems

    • Requests for platform enhancements, while easy to submit and get approved, are slow to be turned around...often a year or more passes before they're implemented.
    • BuiltTopia, while good for sales and construction, is missing one large thing...a CRM component. The system allows you to manage clients and prospects, but options for email marketing and other CRM-related efforts are lacking.

    • Measurement summary list could have more intuitive ways to organize measures.
    • The server-client and project sharing needs to be easier.
    • The reference of a measure from other drawings is a process that need to be simplified.

        eTakeoff

        eTakeoff is much more dynamic, more up-to-date, it has more functionalities and integrations that allow us to be more focused on project development. I would recommend promoting the platform more and creating a community of users to share their experiences and grow with the use of eTakeoff. I could also recommend a section where the user can be guided in real time.

        Return on Investment

        Constellation HomeBuilder Systems

        • Overall, our company has saved money by being able to shut down all the various platforms we were using for different departments and transition to just BuildTopia.
        • Company efforts are more efficient, with all pertinent information being in one place and able to be viewed by everyone as needed.
        • Efforts of the sales team are better able to be managed and reviewed from afar whereas we only had physical paper trails before.

        eTakeoff

        • I strongly recommend to declare a design and scaling plan before making the purchase the eTakeoff Basic license has several limitations that will drive you to make a forced upgrade before even kicking out the app for the estimators
        • Affordable at a regular cost considering that Autodesk Solutions like Revit will be a much higher fee per services.
        • The ROI can be achieved after the first 6 months of the initial set up of traces, custom settings and list of items to be used on the construction project.
