What our customers are saying
"It’s very intuitive, especially the takeoff and final estimate, and I can control what I want to show the client. I run my own company on a day-to-day basis and sub out the construction, and Buildxact saves me time."
– Ryan McDonald, RYMAC Construction
"The new level of organization that Buildxact brings helps me move quicker with fewer mistakes, and gives me confidence to take on more, and bigger projects."
– Matthew McCrimmon, Sabado Homes
“Buildxact fit the bill the most for me because it provides everything I need to run my construction company without the extra’s I don’t need.”
- Dustin Ballew, Blue Bexar Construction
"I learned how to do takeoffs with Buildxact training, and now I can budget with a preliminary set of plans. For example, our drywall subcontractors would only bid on a house once they completed the framing. Now, they can do it ahead, saving us all time.”
- Jeremy De Paz, Waterloo City Construction
