Pro-Tips and Industry Insights

Never Miss a Message with BuildTools

Communication is at the core of each and every one of your projects. But keeping your lines of communication from getting crossed can be a daunting task. Whether you’re keeping track of information from clients, or spearheading communication with your crew and subcontractors, there’s a lot to keep track of and keep organized so you can refer back to it when you need it.


Gain a Single System of Reference

Stop spending your time sifting through your inbox and combing through notes you’ve jotted down here and there on your computer, in your notebook, and on post-its.

By implementing a construction project management system, you’ll gain a central hub for all the communications you send and receive. They’re organized by project, so no more scouring your inbox for that one-off email that you just can’t find. Easily find short notes and long conversations alike, and keep important attachments easily accessible.

Do you need to train subs and clients on a new email system? No! BuildTools integrates with gmail and other email platform, so the people you email won’t have to do anything differently.

Streamline Project Notifications

When updates and change orders affect projects, you’re probably used to making changes in one system, and updating your team in another.

In BuildTools, you can collect and log project notifications in one convenient app - no more switching back and forth. The updates are at your fingertips.

Want to streamline updates for your team? With BuildTools, once the update is logged, it can seamlessly send a notification to update relevant parties of the change. Take the guesswork out of your projects, and give your crew and subcontractors the right information, right away. Say goodbye to extra emails, phone tag, and text message reminders.

Archive Your Information, Access It Any Time 

Once you’ve gotten the information you need out of your emails, you may let them sit in your inbox, organize them, or delete them. But what happens if you need to refer back to something you’ve deleted, or “organized” so you can no longer find it?

With BuildTools, messages and attachments are all archived and organized by project. Whether you need to double-check the details of an update or get warranty work done for your clients, don’t spend time digging through your inbox. Say goodbye to picking up the phone and playing phone tag to figure out things that an organized inbox could tell you in seconds. Simply log into the specific BuildTools project, select the element of the build you’d like to update, and send all the messages you need to, without leaving the app.

Staying organized saves you time, so projects get finished faster. Faster, easier workflows mean happier teams and clients, good news for your reputation, and more time to take on new business.
