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.

As a user of Builterra, it has saved me time and effort compared to doing work manually.

As a user of Builterra, it has saved me time and effort compared to doing work manually.

Pros

Builterra is a very useful software that can be used via laptop, phone, or tablet. Daily inspections and weekly quantities of site work can be conducted through this platform which makes it easier than older methods such as Microsoft Word or Excel.

Cons

The software runs slow on laptops sometimes as the server is huge. Some data takes time to enter but they are still being developed to better aid the contract administrators.

Best platform for contract management

Reviewed on 5/13/2021

Pros

The easy way to write and submit the inspection report, payment certificates, estimate and most of the contract administration work are breeze to do

Cons

Absolutely nothing that I don't like about the product. Though there can be some improvement in testing side before the product rolls out to avoid any miscalculation in projects

Response from AEC Solutions

Thanks Mali,

Looking forward to serving the team at WSP Canada in 2021! As we rollout new portals, we will spend more time on the sandbox testing. Point taken.

A great concept but not a finished product.

The best word would be 'frustrating'. Downloading a report in PDF form sums up the experience: having to wait several minutes for a 1pg pdf form is inconvenient - being told that it's because you are number 1 in line is just a bizarre user experience - finding out that using a different method to download that same 1pg pdf report gives a significantly different looking document is very frustrating.

Customer service was timely and patient, but not always helpful. Many of the things we needed help with would turn out to be large problems and it did not seem that there was any interest in undertaking the necessary work.

Pros

I honestly believe the idea behind this software has the potential to change the way the industry operates and any company not using something similar will be seen as being behind the times. Builterra is on to a really good idea by putting CA tasks online and increasing automation and smart interactions between tasks.

Cons

The most frustrating part of using Builterra is experiencing it fall short of it's clear potential. From uploading/inputting data to downloading reports, every step was slow, buggy, and difficult to navigate. This translated into additional costs that had not been budgeted for and additional time that I did not have to spare. At no point did the time and effort savings of the software materialize.

I suspect that each company signing up with Builterra will require a fair amount of work to customize the reports and functionality to that company. This is worth either putting under user control or taking the time to set up the software to turn out a product that matches the company's existing output.

Much of the value of the product results from mobile use, sadly the mobile experience falls far short of even the desktop experience.

Response from AEC Solutions

Laurence, Our sincere thanks for providing this insightful feedback. We only have 1000 chars to respond but will follow-up directly.

Performance:We are committed to resolving report generation times during peak hours.
Report differences:Some custom reports using checkboxes do not render properly from Excel to PDF. We recommend the Excel report be used for reports with checkboxes and PDF for image reports.
Overall Support:We are very sorry to hear that the support provided was sub-par and are addressing this with our team.
Customization requirements:Builterra is an out-of-box reporting system and a platform for report customization. For the latter, our team works closely with clients to ensure success.
Report Customization:For now, reports are custom coded. However, our roadmap includes user defined reports for greater flexibility.

Thank you for seeing our potential to 'change the way the industry operates'. We'd love for you to help us do just that. We'll be in touch.

Good customer service and easy to use

Good customer service and easy to use

Pros

Gives me more time to inspect instead of writing reports and I can draw and edit pictures. I can easily download pictures and reports without having to save them on my computer.

Cons

Not everything I would like to use is on it yet.
