An anonymous BuilderTREND user says...
For custom homebuilders, I would say the program is great and give it a 4 to 5 stars. For us, as a telecommunications contractor, it has deficiencies and is not robust enough. We only have a small number of customers and but perform multiple jobs for them which BuilderTrend isn’t able to manage. I would give it 2 stars from our direct perspective.
