Buildertrend + Xero

Buildertrend integrates with Xero by connecting your projects within Buildertrend to your customers in Xero. The purpose of this integration is to alleviate double entry in both systems. Once connected, you can link your subcontractor and inventory items to accurately sync expenses incurred and track project costs. Lastly, you can automatically generate customer invoices and approved change orders and have them sync directly into your Xero account.

love it. Our goal was to reduce our data entry down and this has enabled this. If you're a business owner you will love this as it streamlines timesheets to invoicing and entering expenses to paying bills, even to live budget tracking (hours and materials), to purchase order. For builders it's such a time saver and gives you live, accurate data It's insane and reduced our costs down and automates /streamlines so much. There may be bugs, New version of Xero has sorted a lot of issues. We deal with gst easily (create a cost code in BT called GST). I'm writing this because of the bad reviews. Deal with the bugs, there aren't many. Those that complain haven't set it up properly or commenting on the old xero. It's been upgraded folks, it's awesome

Not impressed. When you create a contact in BuildTrend and have it pull the information into Xero it brings the name only all other relevant information has to be entered again. Once I have the contact set up in Xero I go to create a project in xero for that contact but xero will not recognize that contact. So now I have to remove everything from xero and start over. Then I can go back to BuilderTrend use find contact instead of create contact in xero then link and create an invoice that has the wrong item, no description, wrong tax rate, and a ridiculous 22 character long invoice number that all must be edited/changed before I can approve it. So far this hasn't emilimated or even reduced the double entry. After you finally get it set up and talking with BuilderTrend, you can enter a payment in xero, it will update in BuilderTrend so that's helpful.

I just had a look at the GST issue for a client using Buildertrend and found that if the Xero inventory items that link to Buildertrend were updated to include GST on Expenses then the export from Buildertrend worked correctly. The client is very happy with Buildertrend - their only issue was the GST on their purchses and by adding GST on Expense to the items we seemed to have solved that problem. Perhaps others using the software could try the same fix
