Simple Implementation

When you purchase BuildTools, implementation is a simple, streamlined process. A dedicated implementation specialist will walk you through the steps to set up all of your projects, email, and budgets. That way, you can stay focused on building the best possible homes for your clients. 

Although implementing a new software may seem like an intimidating process, we've got it down to a science. Plus, since we were founded by builders for builders, we speak your language, and have designed a product that doesn't require a big shift in your everyday. 

One example of our seamless integration? Email. It's a part of our app, so you finally have one system of record for all of your communication and documents. But it doesn't require any special processes for your clients and subcontractors, who may be more comfortable staying in their native email app. That's fine! Simply cc your project-based BuildTools email address (for example,, and all of your conversations and email addresses are automatically added to that project's folder. You'll never have to sift through your inbox again! 

What else does BuildTools help with? Along with streamlining your email process, you’ll see also see improvements in your change order and budgeting processes. Digital signatures give your clients the ability to accept or reject a change order from their mobile device. This means you’ll always know exactly what the client has signed off on, and you’ll avoid those uncomfortable financial conversations later down the road.

If you’re already using QuickBooks, your data is automatically imported, meaning the days of double-entry are long gone. Reduce errors while cutting down on the time you spend on financial data entry.

When you purchase BuildTools, you don't just get a product - you also gain access to a team of support staff dedicated to your success.

And since BuildTools was built by builders, for builders, we know where you're coming from.
