Building takes a lot of time. Not only the construction process itself, but also the planning, drawing, estimating, buying, and everything else that goes into completing a row of houses or an entire office block. Estimating costs and coming up with a quote, in particular, can be a lengthy and time-consuming process which can take anywhere from 4 day to a week, or even more.
Now, imagine a tool that can speed up estimation and quotation times to less than 3 hours, as well as manage projects from A to Z. That tool is Buildxact, an Australia-based estimating and construction management software, can help developers, builders, contractors, interior designers, and even landscapers to save time and money throughout the building process. It is the most user-friendly tool to manage property projects end-to-end, from first contact and quote to the final invoice.
Proper paperwork and documentation is a necessary part of building and construction, but managing one, or even several construction projects at the same time can be a huge task. Buildxact provides all the tools developers and contractors need to manage and grow their businesses.
Online, cloud-based management
Project managers can access their construction management tools from anywhere, with just an internet connection and a web browser. All project information is kept online securely in the cloud, so there’s no hassle with checking on project details and deadlines.
Quick and simple takeoffs
A lot of time can be saved with online takeoffs in just a few clicks. Projects can be measured and priced in one step with takeoffs automatically linked to the item costs. It’s a really flexible tool that can do takeoffs in lineal, square or cubic metres, and count items.
Fast and accurate estimation
Speed up estimates with checklists for fast, accurate, and consistent quoting. Upload your own supplier pricings direct from a spreadsheet, and produce accurate estimates with composite recipes, automatic wastage and rounding features. Instead of 4 to 5 days, get estimates within 2 hours!
Create accurate and professional quotes
First impressions always matter, which is why Buildxact enables project managers to easily turn estimates into professional quotes with their own branding. Impress customers with detailed specifications, images, layouts, and clear breakdowns of costs.
Streamline cost tracking and purchasing
Make sure you always know whether you’re over or under budget with easy cost tracking comparing your estimate to actual spend. Quickly create purchase or work orders, and enter supplier/contractor invoices. The clean and simple dashboards show you whether your budget spend is ahead or behind of customer invoicing at a glance.
Just like the quotes, building managers can create professional invoices for contract or cost-plus jobs, using pre-formatted and ready-to-use templates. It is vital to keep the customer informed about all costs (paid/owed/upcoming) and avoid surprises or disagreements with invoice statements. Building managers can also track customer payments, whether paid in part or full, and any outstanding balances.
Connect to your accounting apps
Plug straight into accounting apps like Xero, MYOB, and Quickbooks for effortless tracking of your finances – approved purchases and invoices automatically sync for payment or reconciliation.
