Why use Builda Price?
Builda Price is a system you can trust. Designed from the ground up specifically for builders by a Kiwi duo with a combined 60 years experience in the NZ construction industry. With this comes a passion to help the building industry remain profitable and sustainable.
Builda Price Pricing allows you to import the materials estimate supplied by your merchant.
The software then provides an easy and efficient way to adjust the quantities as you see fit.
At the same time, Builda Price Pricing automatically calculates the labour in terms of both manhours and dollars and cents. The software instantly and accurately calculates your labour cost – traditionally the most high-risk area of pricing. For peace of mind the labour for each worksection can be instantly compared to your own labour estimate, thus incorporating your knowledge of each individual project.
An intuitive workflow streamlines the pricing process and ensures nothing is accidentally left out. Fully customizable Miscellaneous Templates are included to enable you to price construction not contained on your merchant quote, while a comprehensive suite of Overheads Templates ensures you’ll never under-price your P&G again.
Within an hour or two an entire job can be accurately costed from start to finish. With Builda Price on your side you can price jobs with confidence, knowing exactly where your break-even point lies.
Keep on top of your build with the Builda Price Job Tracking. Import jobs directly from the pricing program and compare estimated budgets with actual costs as they arise in real time. Back-costing will help you maintain profitability and creates an accurate record of costs for use when pricing future jobs.
Simple, user-friendly interface is easy to learn. Manually enter any projects currently underway, or else import new projects directly from Builda Price Pricing.
Compatible with most major NZ materials suppliers, or else import invoices directly from Xero. Supplier and Subcontractor invoices can be imported and assigned to the appropriate job and work section, thereby maintaining the utmost simplicity and transparency when compared to estimated costs versus actual.
Just minutes a day allows you to track the financial progress of a project in real time. Discover which worksections are profitable and which could benefit from a future adjustment. Provides you with all the data you need to ensure that you are pricing for profit.
This simple yet powerful tool allows builders to track their progress against estimated man hours and expenditures on each job. Builders can quickly log hours on the go using the app that instantly feeds back into the Builda Price Backcoster. Quickly and easily switch between different jobs and worksections within those jobs. Record notes against each task or against the day overall.
Enables you to stay in control of your project as the app data tracks expected cost and job progress against actuals in real time.
A clear and simple user interface allows foremen to sign off on timesheets in mere moments. All the hours logged by your workers appears in one clear payroll report.
Update jobs on the fly. Add a variation to the job and it instantly appears on your workers’ timesheet app, enabling you to accurately record manhours and material costs against it.
Builda Price is the only pricing program that links directly with your materials supplier allowing you to import an entire Schedule of Quantities at the touch of a button. The software converts the schedule into man hours enabling you to accurately price your labour. Builda Price then allows you incorporate miscellaneous costs, subcontractors and overheads so that a full and accurate quote is produced.
Once a quote is accepted, your new job can be brought into the Job Tracker for comprehensive cost tracking. Here you can track your true materials, labour and subcontractor costs while the job progresses – comparing to your original budget in real time and helping you to achieve a profit.
I would highly recommend Builda Price to anyone who would like to reduce the time spent quoting jobs and more so, reduce the risk of under quoting labour especially when pricing alterations.
Builda Price gives you a peace of mind that transfers between jobs. Being able to see how each stage progresses from job-to-job allows me to tighten up my operational efficiency and makes a huge difference to administration time. When negotiating for jobs I print out all the documents and sit down with my potential clients showing them where extra costs could come from. It’s positive for me to have a breakdown to run through with them. Xero invoicing is an important part of my day and I appreciate that there is Xero integration. Having all my invoices come into the system saves me a lot of time, and being able to code items and invoices to specific jobs is easy and allows me the transparency to see where costs are.
If there was one thing that I would say to another builder then I would tell them that I’ve tried a lot of other software, but that nothing fills my requirements as much as Builda Price. The whole product is completely different to a lot of other software solutions. Builda Price is a simple program that works for builders not against them.
A huge part of the system’s draw for me is getting the payroll and timesheets brought directly into the system. This makes it very easy to track jobs as they’re being worked on by our team. It has been really good getting the quotes together in one place. Builda Price is very structured and it shows if you’re missing anything anywhere in the job that is being worked on. The team enjoy using the app more than handwriting their timesheets daily. This alone saves me a lot of time on administration.
The system has helped us to pick up things we wouldn’t have added to jobs before. Our clients have liked being able to see the details and to know what’s in the jobs. Transparency for the clients, quotes and for ourselves to see how the time has been allocated to the job for the team has been a huge part of utilizing the Builda Price software effectively throughout our business.
Builda Price is a really good resource. If you use it properly it will save you a lot of time and stress in your business.
