BuildTopia

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

Trimble SysQue

Trimble SysQue is a perfect fit for our organization, being a Design/Build contractor. We use it to design, coordinate, and create Pre-Fabricated assemblies. We perform a lot of IPD Projects and, coupled with BIM 360 Design, it makes us efficient.

Pros

BuildTopia

  • 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.

Cons

BuildTopia

  • 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.

  • SysQue doesn't switch between elbow types on the fly very well so if you are processing a run with mixed elbow types in it, there can be some minor issues.

Return on Investment

BuildTopia

  • 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.
