A faster, simpler way to pay and get paid

Accurate cash flow depends on how quickly you can send or receive money. If you’re always waiting for a check to be deposited or chasing down client payments – you’ll never know where you stand. Buildertrend Payments provides the solution.

A lot of these subs are on their phones, not really at a computer. They’re just go, go, go. I think the ease of getting an email if they choose to sign up for direct deposit is so quick and it’s less steps for them. That’s the biggest thing – making it easier for our subs. Because they’re not going to want to do a ton on their end. It’s super advantageous.
