    Customer support is what has really set you guys apart from everyone else and one of the main reasons we went with buildxact. Keep it up

    Pros

    We loved the wide range of things we could do with this software. A one stop shop for our costing, scheduling and backcosting.

    Cons

    We would love a timeline longer than a month to be visable on the dashboard to see all our builds over say a year span. We would also love some more new zealand suppliers. I also struggle sometimes when recipes update wrong or not at all from the categlogue to the esitmate.

    I quite like the program but the reporting is very lacking so we rely heavily on XERO to do this part.

    Pros

    That is works well with XERO to track expenses according to each job

    Cons

    That there is no search feature in the Actuals. In the building industry there are so many different items used and a search to find an item would be handy.

    We had to spend a few hours/days setting up the tool for quoting, tracking expenses as they were being allocated in the wrong field when synced with Xero and making it fully synced.

    Pros

    It's a great tool for quoting as you can set up formulas and the quote itself looks really professional and visually attractive.

    Cons

    Sometimes the numbers and percentages are hard to understand and sometimes they don't match in a logical manner.

    Loving the estimating features, especially plan takeoffs. Bunnings live integration is a must. Buildxact helps to complete the feed back loop on estimating, job costing, actual costings.
