"Efficiency"

Comments: 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...

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...

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 [email protected] 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.

"Good but not great"

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

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.

"Construction Inspector iPad App User"

Comments: 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.

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.

"Builterra"

Comments: 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.

"Builterra Review for sub-Division Construction"

Comments: 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.

Pros: Very helpful for documentation of daily photos and keeping records.

Cons: Errors in software can cause in progress reports to be lost.
