I used other CRMs in the past, but love using BuilderTrend. Its simple setup has allowed me to keep track of my customers as well as provide better follow up to my clients. I just utilize the Sales section of BuilderTrend, but it has improved my client relationships and increased my overall sales.

Pros

Buildertrend is great--I love using the Activity Calendar and Lead Report to keep track of my follow up with my customers. I can use activity notes to remember what I discussed with customers when we last spoke, and this helps me engage in better dialogue when I follow up with customers. Our installation team loves using the project management feature to keep track of our installs and provide an easy transition from sales to installation.

Cons

The user interface is kind of clunky, especially on the app. Sometimes it is difficult to find stuff and the filters can get annoying.

Response from Buildertrend

Brian, thank you for your review and honest feedback! We love hearing how Buildertrend has helped your company.

Very good.

If youre going to integrate BT make sure you take it on a section at a time. Dont try and open up too many sections to your team

These guys have given a lot of thought to the software and it forms an amazing backbone for any client facing construction business. We couldnt last the day without it.

Pros

This software is outstanding in many different areas

We initially purchased it initially to manage our clients selections for new homes and it quickly got integrated elsewhere to the point its the backbone of many of our processes

We use this now to manage client change order (it pays for itself on this alone every month) selections, materials ordering from site, daily logs, H&S management, RFI's for the design team and photo storage and programming to name but a few

We couldn't go back to the old ways of doing many of these

There are a lot of different features and you'll certainly find many that'll make it worth your while to use

Oh and the customer support is ace

Cons

Overall roll out is great and intuitive but you do need to comit to integrating BT to your business and this takes time and effort. THis is a software that gives back 10 fold what you put in, but it does need your comittment.

Alternatives Considered

Procore and BuilderStorm

Reasons for Switching to Buildertrend

Client facing elements are superb Best fit for our size of business wide host of services

Response from Buildertrend

Richard, thank you so much for your honest review and feedback! We appreciate you sharing how Buildertrend works for Appletree Estates, and we feel so lucky to have you as customers.

At the lower the price I started with it a great product but there are a handful of companies that are do as good or almost as good a job for 3-5 time cheaper.

Pros

I did like all the features. Works great for Fixed price projects

Cons

HATE the price and the shady way they keep increasing the costs. Start at $59 a month quit when they asked for $1300 a month. Actually they did not ask all of their price increase over the year have happened without notification. This latest increase was beyond crooked 200% increase with even informing their users.

While in general we've been happy but our frustration points have pushed us to look at others. There may be other programs that work like BuilderTrend but we haven't found anything that gives us what we're looking for. While BT has made strides recently we would like to see more industry standard issues resolved on the back end. For the money though it is reasonable.

Pros

Documentation preservation. Job organization

Cons

Accounting does not follow basic industry standards. We've have had invoices rejected because there is basic information missing like issue and due date. We don't care about print date. Is that industry standard?
