Pro-Tips and Industry Insights

Are You Paying Too Much for Construction Software?

Construction project management software allows you to boost profits without increasing your headcount. As your home building business becomes more efficient and you ramp up on new projects, does your software subscription become more expensive? If it does, that sliding scale is misleading, which leads to frustration.

Keep your profits where they belong – in your pocket.


Project-based Pricing vs. Flat-rate Pricing

Project-based pricing doesn’t reward your hard work – why should you pay more for the same software functionality based on each new active job?

A flat-rate pricing model with unlimited projects lets you scale your business with confidence. Knowing that your software vendor supports the success of your business allows for more predictable growth – you’re not left guessing what the bill will be on a monthly basis. Plus, you don’t have to worry about reaching limits when you have other pressing issues at hand.

With cloud-based technology, it doesn’t make sense to pay more for the same software based on the number of projects you’re working on at a given moment. Whether you’re building 50 homes or 5, you’re still accessing the same platform to manage those projects.

Flat-rate pricing with unlimited projects gives power back to the users. So, even if you are working on smaller projects, you can still leverage the software to save time and money, which means your process doesn’t have to change project by project. The beauty of flat-rate pricing is the more you use your construction management tool, the more you get out of it.


Step Away from Software Surprises & Fees

As a custom home builder or remodeler, you have enough to worry about on a daily basis. Break the cycle of implementation and service fees that are often associated with project-based pricing. Strive for predictable, simple pricing with your management platform, regardless of the size of your company or the number of active projects on your calendar.

BuildTools is priced to support your success. We charge monthly, do not require long-term contracts, and offer unlimited projects for all users.
