I came across a testimonial from one of my competitor’s customers the other day (dressed for success I might add). Here’s what he had to say about the benefits of his comprehensive "big guy" project management suite that he chose (shortened to bullet points for the sake of brevity):
- Place where all staff can access information from any Internet connected device
- Allows us to share project information
- Can notify each other about issues
- Can be used for creating RFI's (requests for information) among other construction documents
- Place to store job site photos, job related documents, and daily job logs
- Clients and sub trades can access files of all sizes, no need to email attachments
BuildIT offers the same thing.
The difference -- price, and complexity.
We’re about 1/10th of the cost of this particular software behemoth. How do we know this? You tell us. Even though most large project management software companies do not publish their pricing, the word does get out.
When you shop around, you soon get an idea on where prices fall. And you'll see that BuildIT subscription pricing is at the far low end of the pricing spectrum.
There may be some features that your company needs over and above what we offer. In that case, I'd be happy to make some recommendations. We make no apologies -- we're a niche construction scheduling system, not an "end to end" full project management suite.
There is no "one size fits all" construction software silver bullet. On the contrary, there are dozens if not 100's of solutions that may work for you… the key is to nail down what you need, and find something that gets as close to the bulls-eye as possible... for the least cost.
Many customers already have their estimating and accounting systems nailed, and they don't need a soup-to-nuts package that will grind things to a halt at the beginning, and has a high likelihood of stalling in the implementation.
If what you need is basic construction scheduling, file management/sharing, and a collaboration "platform" where you can keep your staff, trades, vendors and clients in the loop, then start with us first... it'll be easier on your pocketbook, with a greater chance of success!
Unless of course you want to pay an extra $8,000 for some additional bells and whistles (and I’m rounding down here).
BuildIT -- construction scheduling and project management software for the 81% crowd !
