Overall Satisfaction with BuildingConnected

BuildingConnected is being used by our estimating department and operation teams during preconstruction. BuildingConnected solves the problem of preconstruction invitations, document control, and bid leveling.
  • BuildingConnected maintains our subcontractor database showing prequalification status.
  • BuildingConnected makes it very easy to view the subcontractor's history for access to the site and viewing of documents.
  • There was a previous glitch where bid forms have been updated by subcontractors that have accessed a former version are not able to access the updated/new bid form.
  • I would like to see the ability for BuildingConnected to automatically send a bid reminder to bidders at a set amount of time prior to the bid date.
  • Our company is able to view the number of bid responses and award percentages for each subcontractor.
  • We save a considerable amount of admin time by utilizing BuildingConnected. Correspondence to all subcontractors can be concurrent rather than individually where a general note must be distributed.
BuildingConnected is 100x better than Smart Bid!! Much more flexibility and options!
With NOVO we have our own customer service rep available to assist with all our needs.
