Buildertrend Benefits and Insights

Why use Buildertrend?

Key differentiators & advantages of Buildertrend

  • Establish Effective Communications: Deliver notifications with project updates to teams, subcontractors and clients with daily logs, so everyone is on the same page consistently. Users may also record weather changes automatically and make notes with voice-to-text technology to ensure their teams always work in good weather and are prepared for surprises. 
  • Organize Documents and Photos: Leverage infinite file sharing, reducing unnecessary treks to the office. Teams can access files from mobile devices at any location to review plans, budgets and other necessary paperwork at the worksite swiftly. Users may also share videos, photos and documents with several other users and arrange them in folders for easy navigation. 
  • Efficient Invoice Changes: Produce line-item bills and invoices from estimates, change orders or customer selection sheets by integrating with QuickBooks or Xero, which keeps bookkeeping tasks in one centralized hub. Users may also accept online payments and establish payment reminders, so they receive their transactions on time. 
  • Simple Time Tracking: Manage time for office workers and field teams with a time clock that enables employees to clock in and out from the mobile app so users will always know how many hours each employee accrues at any given time. It can track who's clocked in or out during a specific period, generate payroll reports and exhibit a crew worker's exact location on a virtual map. 
  • Client Collaboration: Enable customers to track projects' progress with unique customer logins for effective contractor/client collaboration. Users can also upload photos and send messages about project updates. 
  • Allocate Surveys: Deliver online surveys to clients automatically after finishing projects to leave reviews. Users may also review and post positive responses to reviews via their websites to establish and maintain positive customer relationships. 

Industry Expertise

Jeff Dugger, Steve Dugger and Dan Houghton created Buildertrend in the basement of an Omaha house in 2006 with the confidence of knowing there were better ways to manage construction projects, communications and technologies. It currently sets the standard for construction with its cloud-based software with users in more than 100 regions, millions of accomplished projects and implementation by 1 million construction professionals. In February 2021 it acquired CoConstruct — a SaaS construction ERP company designed for home builders and renovators — making it one of the largest companies for independent and custom home builders, contractors and more.
