If you're reading this, you're likely in the hunt for some type of construction software.
And there's lots out there!
You've probably found a number of websites like Software Advice, Capterra, G2 Crowd that provide a myriad of software solutions for you to consider. And if you Google search "construction software" or its many variants ("construction project management", "home builder software", "construction scheduling software" and so on), you'll find literally 1000's of hits.
You could spend the next year researching options, and not make a move. Meanwhile, your competitors are pulling trigger on something, and making gains in their operational efficiencies. The pressure's on.
To make things more challenging for you, all these construction software companies are jimmying for position, trying to be at the top of the list, like race cars on a track. And in marketing their products, they'll make claims designed to get you to choose them above the rest.
Here are some claims that I found doing a quick search of several construction software companies:
- #1 Highest Rated Custom Builder and Remodeler Software
- Best in Class Construction Project Management
- The #1 Software for home builders and remodelers
- Are you using the industry standard?
- The most widely user construction software in the cloud
- The world's number one most widely used construction management software
These companies are all making overlapping claims. They can't all be right.
But they all share this in common: all of these companies DO NOT offer a free test drive of their system. What they do offer is professional salespeople, often commissioned, with monthly quotas, who pull out all the stops to get you to buy.
We all have friends who went to Mexico on a vacation... and came back "owning" a time share. And when you questioned them on their purchase, they went to great lengths to justify the expenditure. The fact is, that industry is a well oiled machine, and these time share companies are experts at getting people to pay more for something they hadn't given much if any thought to prior to boarding the plane.
That's how the big construction software companies are structured now. If these companies have dozens (or in some cases 100's) of staff, many of whom are headset wearing, cubicle occupying hungry sales people that have to produce or die, well, buckle up... you are in for a wild ride. And it will cost you royally.
Ready to experience the difference?
1. Free test drive. No obligation. No credit card required.
Imagine, not being hounded by a salesperson. Launch a free test drive of BuildIT when it suits you. Learn at your own pace, with helpful videos that guide you through the basics. And eventually, you get to speak to one of the owners. That's right - business owner to business owner. Concierge service. Without sitting in the time share sales room, getting hammered.
2. No need for "Home Builder Boot Camp" or "ABC Software University".
Ouch. If you need to fly somewhere and sit in a class for a couple days, or take part in several "webinars" to learn a software system, it's likely more complex than it needs to be. Or it may be that your operations require complex, comprehensive "end-to-end" solutions, in which case, why are you even here reading this!? (Operators at Software Advice, Capterra, G2 Crowd are standing by!)
3. Simple scheduling and notification system, for a fraction of the price of the Big Guys.
If construction scheduling is all you need, why pay more for features you won't use?
Perhaps you rolled the dice on "the best", "industry standard", "what everybody was bragging about at the previous International Builder's Show" software package. And now the results are in. The hefty monthly billing is adding up to a small fortune. And your experience doesn't match with those glorious customer testimonials on their website.
With complex "Byzantine" project management systems, you'll only use a small percentage of what's available... but you're paying 100% of the price!
So if you're looking primarily for scheduling, and a platform to keep everybody on the same page, then choose BuildIT, and stop the monthly hemorrhaging.
We are welcoming a number of customers who have tried, and quit using the software systems mentioned above. Find out what they have discovered in BuildIT.
