BuildIT! – business software for architects, planners and engineers

Redefine efficiency thanks to the latest technology

Your IT setup should be well thought-out

As an architect, planner or engineer in the construction industry, administrative tasks can take up a significant portion of your daily work, from recording your working hours to running recalculations to appending electronic signatures and invoicing. To help you save time, we have developed the BuildIT! software for architects. It is based on the leading Abacus business software and combines the technological know-how of Abacus with our 35 years of experience in the construction industry. The result: a software for architects that will improve your company’s efficiency. You can use BuildIT! on your own devices or in the cloud as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution.

We developed BuildIT! in collaboration with architects, planners and engineers. The software is aimed specifically at companies in the construction industry and offers a simple and efficient solution for capacity planning, time and expenses management, absence management, cost calculations and invoicing for projects and contracts – all in accordance with SIA 102, of course. You can also manage all HR tasks conveniently via smartphone or tablet. With this software, you can utilise your resources to generate true added value by focusing on your customers.
