Best customer service...
It works for all parts of our business from billing to communicating with our homeowners. Their customer service is the BEST...they're always available, quickly, to help/direct/navigate an issue or take an issue under advisement if it will help better their site.
There are a few little things in terms of formatting, that would be helpful especially when preparing presentations, etc... The mobile app is a little cumbersome and hard to navigate especially when you are used to working from the desk top version. My project managers only use the daily log feature in the field since the other parts are too complicated.
Overall, our whole company uses some part or piece of Buildertrend every day. We are thankful for the communication tool especially between our team in the field, those in the office and our homeowners.

The best part about BuilderTrend is that we were able to apply our own processes we have established throughout the 38 years we have been open on a cloud based platform.
BuilderTrend is a very powerful tool. There is nothing about the software I particularly dislike, but I will say that it takes a lot of time to implement and understand the software. There are several areas that need improving/changing, however, the people at BuilderTrend are so quick to adjust. It is amazing
With the implementation of BuilderTrend, we have been able to perform as a company in such an efficient way that I often feel as though I am forgetting something. I think what I mean by that statement is that BuilderTrend has us to organized that my day to day tasks from leads, selections on current jobs, schedules, bids/estimates, and much much more is so streamline, I often feel a void internally like I am missing something. That "thing" that I am missing is stress and confusion. This is and exceptional tool for us.
