About Builterra

Builterra is a contract administration software designed to assist businesses in construction, transportation, engineering, and other industries with bid preparation, field inspection, cost estimating payment reporting, and more from within a unified platform. Users can capture and upload model and CAD-based properties for objects to create pay item tables and compare bid items based on section or cost estimates through color-coded charts.

Builterra allows enterprises to add item codes, descriptions, specifications, PDFs, and other properties to tender bid sheets. Contract administrators can create reports with sections about equipment, labor, visitors, and images according to product requirements. The platform also helps businesses drill into inspection data and build templates for bids or cost estimates

Builterra offers mobile applications for Android and iOS devices. Managers can create a schedule of unit prices from the standardized catalog and use a dashboard to track progress across inspected values in real-time.

In general, this software is highly recommended for the accompaniment of a construction project. In my experience it has helped me a lot for real time cost estimation and construction progress monitoring. The multiplatform option makes it versatile for the management of a construction project. Although this software has several aspects to improve, I think it delivers what it promises and has great potential in the construction world.

Pros

In my opinion what Builterra does best are the cost estimates it performs in real time, in addition to the automation for the analysis of the different bids. A plus point of this software is that it is based on BIM methodology. Integration with a web platform and a mobile app makes the software more versatile. Although it standardizes, streamlines and connects the contract management of a construction project, it is not difficult to use. This software helps a lot in site inspections, as it allows taking photos to monitor construction progress. Finally, as for the price, I believe it is cost effective for a company, and the software has a trial or demo version.

Cons

What I liked the least about this software is the mobile version, I think they should constantly update it to show a nice interface and correct some glitches. Even the organization of works report can be improved. Finally the customer support should be more efficient and technical.

Overall this is definitely an improvement over a clunky excel file, but there is still bugs and a lot of untapped potential left in the app.

Pros

I do like the template feature, the automatic weather feature, the contract item drop down list, and the “get location” feature. They did a great job on integrating this app for our projects.

Cons

1. Should be able to complete the daily and EWO report without using the web app. Should be able to complete a report within the mobile app alone.
2. Once the inspection is reviewed it should automatically append a digital signature and then get sent to the contractor for their digital signature.
3. In the mobile app review mode, text overlaps making it difficult to find the item your are trying to review
4. You should be able to adjust the order that the items appear in the pdf or excel report. The web app allows the item # to be changed but this is not reflected once the report is produced.
5. Rows should automatically adjust in the final report if a remark is expanded upon.
6. If an item is deleted or modified in the mobile app for both dailies and EWO it is not always reflected in the final report.
7. Contract pay items appear to give you the impression that you can change the pay item that was initially selected, but this does not get reflected on the final report.
8. Ideally the create inspection and modify inspection are not on separate interfaces.

Response from AEC Solutions

We appreciate your review.

We're thrilled to hear you're pleased with some of our key features and the integration process was great!

The Mobile App can be used to ¿Create¿ a new Daily and Extra Work Order, review and edit any previously submitted data using the ¿Review Mode¿. Completed daily and EWO can be approved and emailed to any external reviewers, all without use of web portal.
The review process does add a digital time/date stamp for inspector, external reviewers and supervisor.

Unfortunately, we only have 1000 chars to respond so we can't address everything here. Please reach out to [email protected] as we'd love to have you on our Platform Advisory Council! We're planning major updates to our user interface this Fall so stay tuned.

Thank you for this valuable feedback! Users like you ensure the platform keeps getting better.

Pros

The cell phone app. Can use my phone in the field and then come and finish it off on the PC.

Cons

Cant take pictures on a tablet. The system crashes every time I take a picture with a tablet. So I am forced to use my cell phone.

Makes completing reports from the field much easier and saves a lot of time once you get back to the office as reports can be downloaded and sent out or stored immediately.
