NextMinute vs Buildxact

Designed for residential construction

Designed to cater for residential construction with 5-50 employees or subcontractors. Flexible pricing means you can pay only for what you require with a simple split between Admin and Team Members.

Timesheeting that works for your team

All your team’s timesheets in one place. Job hours flow straight onto the job invoice, and flow straight through to payroll at the click of a button. Simple and inexpensive as timesheeting is included in the the team member role.

Built for the demands of real trade business

Our product, support and development are based of what our customers require to make their business management simple.

Priced for any scale

Only pay for what you need. Starting with a single Admin membership you can build your team (and pricing) to exactly what suits your business needs.

Full integration with accounting systems

Full integration with Xero, Quickbooks and MYOB, allows you to: Sync contacts, sync timesheets to payroll, sync invoices, & sync supplier bills and their line items into NextMinute jobs.

Supported with rave reviews

Supported by local specialists that know trade business like the back of their hand. Read our reviews on how first class our support is, no bots, just real people ready to work WITH you.

See all your jobs at once

Full visibility of all jobs in once place with filters and different views.

Designed to lock you into a high pricing tier

To manage a residential construction business and team (beyond simply quoting), Buildxact requires either the Pro or Team membership, effectively locking every user into a higher price point regardless of the functionality they require.

No native timesheet management

To record your teams time and apply it to your jobs you need to purchase a separate expensive system. More cost, another system, more hassle.

All or not much

Either an expensive quoting-only system or you need to have your entire team signed up as expensive “all-access” users. To limit control of your team members you need to pay even more.

Limited functionality and expensive

The ‘Entry’ tier has a limited number of features and is double the price of a full access NextMinute admin membership. The Team tier locks all users at a single and high price point making it inflexible to real world construction teams.

Limited integration with accounting systems

Limited integration to Accounting systems, with no Bills import from Xero. Supplier bill integration is also very limited because you cannot push line items into individual jobs.

Supported by bots with long wait times

As per their support page and Google reviews, support is not “people first” as you may have to wait some time to get any response at all.

No visibility of all your jobs

No simple way to see all your jobs in one place.
