Brian Regan is one of my favorite comedians. Clean comedy at its best.
He's got this one routine he does about a guy going shopping for refrigerators, and there are all these options... and the salesman does a great job leaning on each refrigerator as he's trying to sell this guy:
"this refrigerator here keeps all your food cold for $600"
"this refrigerator keeps all your food cold for $800"
"check this out, $1400, keeps all your food cold"
And of course the salesman tries to work the guy on the expensive model with all the "bells and whistles".
Have you been "worked on" by someone trying to sell you software? Especially when you're still trying to recover from sticker shock?
And admit it... have you ever bought the $1400 model and regretted it? I did, just recently. A fancy tea kettle for my wife, stainless steel, with way too many buttons, blue lights... settings we'll never use, and to make matters worse, it doesn't shut off like our old plastic one did (with one button)... it keeps reboiling !! Maybe there is a firmware update I'm not aware of :-)
There are a lot of options out there in the construction software space. Some big companies with massive payrolls (and massive venture capital backers) are making some slick, comprehensive applications. But as one customer put it, they are just too "sexy", too much going on, to the point that while the system may have what they need, their staff can't make it work. Plus, these companies have to charge higher rates to cover their cost structure (and make payroll for their 100's of employees)... and you are paying for it, and in may cases, hemorrhaging each month financially.
Fortunately that's not the case with BuildIT.
We've been around for 15 years and have stood the test of time. We were fortunate that at the onset, we attracted real customers who got real value from our system... and many of them have continued to benefit from BuildIT over a decade later.
The difference you'll find is that BuildIT is more of a boutique software company... we are laser focused on construction scheduling, and collaboration.
- Team collaboration.
- Contractors connecting efficiently with their sub trades and clients.
- Specialty trades managing their crews.
We offer concierge service. One of the owners of the company will personally ensure you get off to a solid start, and achieve success with the system. It starts with getting one or more of your projects scheduled, right out of the gate. And if you need something customized to really make BuildIT rock for you, chances are we can build it for you in short order. It's in our name !
Plus, the BuildIT management team comes from the construction industry. We don't hire sales people whose job it is to close the deal. Yes, we want your business and will at some point ask for your credit card to join the BuildIT camp. The big difference is, we've been where you are, literally, on job sites, in plan rooms, in construction site offices, and reviewing blue prints on the hoods of trucks.
Essentially, we "keep your food cold" for the lowest subscription pricing in the construction software space. You don't pay $1000's more for features you'll never use, and unlike most of the home builder software today, you won't be penalized for doing more jobs.
If you don't need the crisper or the egg area, choose BuildIT.
And start scheduling today... the easy way.
(December 2019 Update: The fancy kettle buttons stopped working, not under warranty, so it got tossed... more e-waste... we found our old "analog" kettle, cleaned it up, and are using that once again. Shiny isn't always better, but it's usually much more expensive. Lesson learned.)
