Overall Satisfaction with BuildingConnected

I use BuildingConnected to list projects bidding. I use the free version. I upload plans and invite Subcontractors to bid on the projects. BuildingConnected helps me find out of town subs fast and easy.
  • The planroom is great and easy to upload.
  • Get for out of town projects! Finding subs fast!
  • The free version only allows you to list so many projects.
  • We have found quality Subcontractors.
Procore has excellent project management, but the bidding side is the worst I have ever used.
PlanHub is easy to use and lets me put as many jobs as possible online.
They have always helped me and always gave me an answer.
