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.

Overall: 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.

Vendor Response

by AEC Solutions on September 10, 2018

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 support@builterra.com 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.

A great concept but not a finished product.

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.

Overall: 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.

Vendor Response

by AEC Solutions on September 06, 2018

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.

Great concept, needs some work.

Pros: The connectivity of data is a great idea. Having every aspect of tendering and inspection linked together in one software, from the actual issuing of tenders through to payment certificates is a great idea. The inspection portion of the software (app) is great, and the geolocation and captioning of photos works well. Having everything cloud-based is helpful to mitigate loss of data and keep all data in a central location.

Cons: The user interface requires improvement to be easily usable and easier to comprehend for users that are not very acquainted with the software. Navigating through the various aspects of creating a tender, and how the connectivity works between tendering, historical costing, inspection, and payment certificates is not intuitive enough for new users to easily comprehend. The many layers of data entry leaves room for data to be entered incorrectly into the wrong location which renders the data meaningless. Users need to spend significant time acquainting themselves with the software and data input and usage methods before it can become useful.

Usage of the app (on android) resulted in many errors and bugs which, though were resolved, resulted in time and data loss.

Vendor Response

Adam,

We're truly grateful you took the time to detail your experience with Builterra to date.

Firstly, we're happy to hear you believe in the concept and have had great success with your field inspection workflows, particularly the geolocation and captioning of photos.

We agree that the tender configuration & navigation can be confusing for new users and in the short term, are aiming to provide video tutorials to ensure users are aware of the relationships and links in the tendering system, inspection and progress payment system.

We are sorry to hear about the issues you experienced with the Android app. We are pleased to report that the app is going through a significant re-work this Fall which will result in a better user experience.

Your feedback was well received and much appreciated. We'll be in touch with an invitation to join our Platform Advisory Council.

Our sincere thanks, Team Builterra

Pros: Saves tons of time writing up the inspection reports and once a formula is set pay items are breeze. Loved the comaptibilty and synchronized formatting of reports between different platforms

Cons: Its very frustrating when you expect a report to be generated the way you want and software just stops responding and freezes.

Overall: Report generation as in inspectors role have become easier. Pay items go through easily and easy operation saves time

Pros: Its a very efficient product I ever used. I like smart reporting software.

Its efficient, easy to access from anywhere onsite or office or from home.

No need more paperwork..

Cons: The online software should have offline software which can synchronize when connected to internet.

The offline version can be fast as the online version speed is depending on internet...

Overall: Its nice but interface can provide more information, such as we have a very big contract.

The contract has several roads in it, I work on one road and need an immediate update about the total quantity of work done entered or left...

Vendor Response

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback on Builterra!

We're thrilled to hear you find the platform efficient, smart and easy-to-use. And we love hearing that you're eliminating paperwork!

You'll be happy to hear that we're updating the Business Analytics part of Builterra for 2019 and would appreciate your feedback as we further develop our dashboard interface. If you're interested in becoming part of our Platform Advisory Council, please email support@builterra.com and reference your review.

The offline experience is being reviewed, however based on our framework, Builterra is 100% web based. The majority of our mobile app functionality can be accessed offline with the exception of access to contract items.

Stay tuned for a series of videos discussing offline usage and limitations.

Thank you again for your feedback. We hope to hear from you about joining our Platform Advisory Council.

Pros: The software, once I played around with functionality, was fairly easy to use. Changes were made during the beta testing that definitely made it easy to use. Customer service is pretty spot on as there were a few bugs at the beginning that were resolved fairly quickly, within a day or 2.

Cons: The level of authority. If a mistake is made, I used to have to call the moderator to un-review a report in order to edit. A little too muddled in the Menu, could be streamlined to the reports that only I deal with. Could stand to use an autocorrect function or predictive text.

Overall: Its a great tool for a database. I have had my permissions extended so the functionality for me is better.

Pros: Being able to view and add contract items on the fly from your phone is incredible. Daily inspection reports have become streamlined. Payments have become easier with all of the information in one place. Photos added to daily's is nice touch for people needing to access information from Daily's.

Cons: I think the UI needs some updating from an aesthetics standpoint. I think gestures should be implemented to help with ease of use and catered towards the OS that they're on. The photos process should be streamlined to make it quicker.

Overall: I'm enjoying Builterra so far and it's definitely helping create a better workflow. I know that the program will only get better with time.

Pros: The idea is a good one and the appearance from an outside perspective is good. The ability to geolocate and work collaboratively is great.

Cons: VERY cumbersome with a steep learning curve. In this industry if you can't pick it up and use it without a training course it won't be used. Too much potential for error or loss of information. Form modification was not possible on a job by job basis without major rework. Batch photo upload not possible. Simple photo modifications such as rotation take way too long to update. Downloaded form formatting may not be the same in PDF as excel. App it to hard to see on a phone in the sun. Major battery use on new phone, old phones would be impossible to keep charged.

Overall: Overall the experience was not as advertised and the cost is too high to maintain with the current product. Technical support is less helpful and more demeaning referencing solutions such as on-line instructional videos instead of addressing specific comments, note that videos are our of date for the constantly evolving product. Responses such as we clearly don't know how to use the product - You are correct that is why we are asking tech support.

As mentioned earlier the interface is too cumbersome and should be customizable by the end user easily without having to get the programmer to setup a custom form.

Generally the experience was poor and both the interface and support will need a lot of polish in the future in order to succeed in the opinion of this reviewer.

Thanks for your review!
We're so pleased to hear you find our inspection and reporting capabilities "second to none" and that you've received "top notch support"!

In terms of cost, the subscription for large numbers of users can be negotiated once an organization commits to Builterra. Feel free to reach out!

At present, reports are custom coded. As the product evolves, we look forward to including user defined report configuration to reduce the need to customize and bring better reporting flexibility.

Thanks again Chad. We truly appreciate your time.

Pros: Ease of the software made inputting data quite simple. Software is very customizable for the type of application we need, and produces reports in any format you need. Pull-down menus are easily expandable and works well when you need to add cells.

Cons: Would like to have seen a pre-determined list of standard inputs, e.g. types of machines or labourers, etc. so that I would not have to program them in for each project.

Overall: Builterra helps to solve the mundane and time-consuming tasks of having to type up and format a perfect looking report. Using the simple forms in the field by inspector to just input the data cuts down on time taken generate reports.

David,
We really appreciate your praise for the platform and constructive feedback.

We're pleased to hear you appreciate Builterra's ease of use and that you're cutting down on the time-consuming task of report generation. That's what we love to hear!

The use of Inspection Form ¿Templates¿ provides for auto-population of labour & equipment types. The Project based lookup lists could provide specific lists for project specific equipment & labour types. Stay tuned for video tutorials on this aspect of the inspection form configuration.

Based on your feedback, we will look into expanding the system to manage project specific templates to auto-populate equipment & labour per the specific project.

Thank you again for taking the time to provide a review David! Users like you help make Builterra great!

Pros: I really liked how the software incorporated everything into one. The portion that allows Contract Administrators to post picutres, documents, etc., while on site was very impressive. I also really liked how easy it was to create tender documents.

Cons: When inputting historical documents it was difficult to remember what boxes to check, and how to input the proper data. This was not so much the software not working properly, rather it was an overload of information, and the drop down boxes not always containing the exact items.

Overall: This software is creating a more standardized and consistent working platform across the board. Once everything is input, the whole office will be able to complete documents quicker and more efficiently. There will no longer be any discrepancy between documents.

The fact that you're experiencing a more standardized and consistent approach to workflows is why we created Builterra!

Pros: We haven't fully implemented the full suite of tools within Builterra yet, so I am most pleased with the ability to control the catalog of items to prevent users from creating too many one-off items. As we move forward, the ability to query past tender pricing for estimating purposes is invaluable to me as a Project Manager. Ultimately, once we are using the inspection component full time, I can't wait for the daily inspection reports with photos and GPS located notes, etc.

Cons: None. The only drawback to this software is the same and any other business software : implementation. It is always difficult to get 100% "buy-in" but in time, I am confident all Project Managers here will appreciate the power and usefulness of Builterra.

Pros: Being able to link photos to the report.

Pros: Adjusts Quantities on the fly. Full package for project estimating.

Cons: Can't utilize easily with ongoing projects.

All or nothing.

Takes awhile to build database.

Need many separate databases for many different clients.

Overall: Builterra has some great potential but will need some heavy legwork on the front end of things to set it up for Business use. Multiple clients with multiple standards may cause some issues.

Pros: The software is easy to navigate and very useful for inspection. Being able to attach pictures to a gps location and easily fill out daily inspection reports with drop down menus is ideal.

Cons: The software support between different client's jobs needs to be looked at and undated a bit.

Overall: Builterra is the future of inspection reporting and makes inspection requirements very easy to log, track and access.
