What has our attention

To make cash in the construction industry you must ensure that your outlay is covered and profit margins maintained. The trick is knowing how to set the project price. To set a price you need to know what the entire project costs are, including the material cost, direct labor pricing, equipment and the indirect cost of the complete job. Big construction companies often have expert construction estimators, as they often do things on a larger scale; however, small builders often have to perform estimates themselves.


For builders: The Entry subscription is for builders, contractors and estimators just starting out with takeoffs and estimates using software. Buildxact designed Pro for builders already accustomed to using software and for builders typically involved in whole-of-house projects using small teams of 1-3 people. Pro offers a full set of project management tools, like scheduling and professional invoicing.

For suppliers: The Pro package for suppliers is designed for account managers and store managers looking to free up time spent on multiple pricing conversations so that more time can be spent consulting with customers. The Enterprise package adds the ability to control user access to specific features.

There are no additional fees. Upgrades, maintenance, support and unlimited training is all included in your subscription fee. The only time you pay extra is when you add extra users to your account. Check out our pricing page for full details.

Buildxact offers 3 annual plan options (Entry, Pro or Teams). Each is designed to meet your specific business needs, and you can pay your annual plan in monthly installments or save money by paying in full upfront. See our pricing for all the details.
