Take luck out of the equation with these quick wins

Buildertrend St Patty's Day

Today may be St. Patrick’s Day, but there’s no need for four-leaf clovers or chasing leprechauns. With Buildertrend on your side, you can take luck out of the equation.

At Buildertrend, we take pride in being the gold standard in construction project management software. From cutting-edge features to pro support, we’ve got everything you need to sustain and grow your business.

We could talk for hours about the benefits of using our platform, but we know you don’t have time for that. Speaking of time, ever wish you had more of it? Well, we’ve got you “clovered.”

After today, you’ll consider these three quick wins your lucky charms!

time you will save

Defy time with our data entry services

Let’s talk about data entry. Although necessary and beneficial in the long run, it requires a lot of up-front effort and dedicated time. We’re talking hours of time.

At Buildertrend, we know you’re busy, and we want to do everything we can to make your life easier. That’s why we offer you the complimentary benefit of having all your data and lists transferred to your Buildertrend account by our data entry team. Whether you’re new to Buildertrend or simply have an updated list, we do all the work for you. It’s true! Just send us your lists and you’re good to go.

We transfer sub lists, cost codes, sales leads, schedule items, selections, estimates…we could go on and on. There’s a list of more than 12 kinds of data that our team can enter for you, saving you all the time and hassle of doing it yourself. And did we mention it’s free? This convenience is yours just by being a Buildertrend user.

save time

Take care of business faster with templates

We’re big fans of templates, and we think you should be, too. Why? Well, next to data entry, templates are one of the biggest time savers for our clients. You can create a template within almost every feature in the Buildertrend platform.

From pre-sale to job end, whether it’s a schedule, job settings, bid packages or client selections, you can template it. This also includes your purchase orders! No, we’re not messing with you. You can template your POs. So, with just a few clicks of the mouse, it’s ready to send.

And, have you ever really liked the way you set up a job, but forgot to save it as a template before closing it? No worries! You can create templates from closed jobs, too.

By creating templates, you’ll save yourself from having to start from scratch and manually fill in information every time you start something new. Game changer!

time clock

Take charge with Time Clock

With so many projects going on at once, we know it can be hard to keep track of your team as well as your subs and trade partners. Who’s coming, who’s going? Are we right?

The Time Clock feature on the Buildertrend mobile app has several time tracking capabilities that are not only convenient but save you time and stress.

Tracking down trade partners to get their hours for the day is a thing of the past. Your team and subs now have the capability to clock in and out straight from the mobile app, and by enabling geofencing, you can ensure everyone’s clocking in from the jobsite.

That’s not all. You can make the most of your time by syncing the Time Clock feature with your budget and Quickbooks. Syncing your financials with Time Clock takes the work out of tracking labor costs and eliminates the need to enter the same information in two places.

With all that, who needs a pot of gold? Just saying.

No wishing necessary

Instead of wishing that managing your projects would get easier or that you had more time in your day, leave the luck out of the equation and give us a call! We’re always happy to chat about how we can help you achieve your goals. For those of you wanting to learn more about Buildertrend, schedule a demo with us today.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from all of us at Buildertrend!
