BT Blog Build Tools vs Buildertrend vs Co Construct

You know you need a better construction project management system and you’ve decided that an app is your best option. But with so many solutions to choose from, which one is right for you?

It’s easy to get lost in the weeds. But at the end of the day, you need a solution that helps you do better work, faster.

At BuildTools, we’re dedicated to making our product the best it can be to help you tackle everyday challenges. Here are three areas where we leave competitors like Buildertrend and Co Construct in the dust.

1. Consistent pricing

You need transparent, affordable pricing – not a system that penalizes you for success. That’s why we offer one flat fee for as many projects as you want.

Want to give clients access to select features like site photos and change orders? We’ve got you covered. Simply set up a custom client portal and give them access to features they need, while keeping proprietary information private. We know that satisfied customers are one of your biggest assets, so unlike Co Construct, we won’t charge you extra to keep them happy and eager to recommend you.

2. Simple user interface

You don’t have time to learn a complex software program. And you shouldn’t have to be a tech guru just to succeed as a builder.

We get it. BuildTools was created by a builder who wanted to make things easier and more efficient for his own company. Our software is based on real-world industry experience, tailored to your needs as a builder, and easy to use.

Simplicity is one of the main things our customers comment on after switching from systems like Buildertrend and Co Construct. Don’t just take it from us, though. Check out our case studies to find out why our customers chose BuildTools.

If your subcontractors are better at hands-on project management than tech, you can be confident that BuildTools will meet them where they’re at and let them focus on what they do best – just faster and more efficiently.

3. Support when you need it

We know it’s not always smooth sailing when you implement a new system, but we’re confident we can help you succeed. When things get difficult, you need an expert to help you get back on course.

That’s why we have an expert support team at your fingertips. When you purchase BuildTools, you’re not just buying a software platform. You also gain access to our team – a smart, dedicated group of builders and software engineers who are great at making sure our product works for you.

Need something fixed? Just reach out and we’re on it.

Finding the right tool for your business

There are a lot of construction project management software options out there. If you find yourself asking which solution is right for you, we’ve got you covered with our Construction Management Software Buyer’s Guide.

A construction management solution can give you more time back in your day, simplify administrative work, and keep more money in your pocket. It’s important to go with a solution that meets your needs, which is why we created our buyer’s guide. In it we provide everything you need when comparing options.

In the guide you’ll find information on:

  • Industry challenges and internal needs. Find a platform that increases your efficiencies, not one that requires more new hires to run.
  • Features to consider. Cut through the extras. What features do you need to drive success for your custom home building or remodeling business?
  • Pricing models. You need simple, transparent pricing that works for your bottom line. Find a model that doesn’t eat away at your margins with confusing plans, short-lived introductory pricing, or per-project fees.

The right software should make your life easier, not harder. Download our guide today and find a solution that lets you get back to doing what you do best. We even included a checklist you can use to compare your top three choices side by side!

Construction project management software that makes your life easier

We understand your challenges. We know what your typical day looks like because we’ve all been there. That’s why we designed a solution with a workflow you’ll recognize and features to help you create faster, more efficient processes that get the job done and put more money in your pocket.
