Accelo

Pretty good as a basic CRM, decent as a support desk. Tries to do a lot, but doesn't excel at any one thing. Reasonably priced, though, and can be a component in a larger setup.

CoConstruct

CoConstruct allows users to work with ease regarding project estimates, specifications, selections, bids, change orders, budgets, etc. with no double entry. A subscription includes the fully integrated financial system for streamlining scheduling, communication, client and subcontractor portals, files, photos, to-dos, time clock, job log, warranty, and more. The construction industry requires detailed attention to both the office and job-site. Users can easily schedule, organize and maintain information throughout the construction process. Subcontractors may require some training or orientation if they are not familiar with the software.

Pros

Accelo

  • Tracking customer interactions. Nice integration with G Suite, could be a lot better if they acknowledged that contacts may actually have more than one email address.
  • Support Ticket system is integrated, so we can view support history and other email correspondence easily. It's cheaper that Zendesk.
  • Support is reasonably good, usually prompt and responsive.
  • Constant development - lots of updates, just not often to areas that we use.

CoConstruct

  • The BEST customer service.
  • Master for communication and organization, i.e. schedules, timelines, pictures, plans, you name it.
  • Assists with transparency for the owner, it's easy to understand as well.

Cons

Accelo

  • Cumbersome processes - feels like tasks take longer than they should.
  • We gave up on the Projects module, it was rather unintuitive. Switched to JIRA, which integrates with the Support module of Accelo.
  • Each email address requires a new contact. If one person uses multiple email addresses to contact you, that info will have to be spread across multiple contacts.

CoConstruct

  • The mobile app could use some further development.
  • Flexible software, therefore it requires time to set up the project how you desire.
  • The integration with Quickbooks is limited.

Alternatives Considered

Accelo

Accelo doesn't really exceed any competitors in any one area of their product, but in 2015 when we made the move this was the best option that included all the tools we wanted. However, user adoption was low in some areas due to the UI, so we scaled back Accelo and added other tools.

CoConstruct

CoConstruct is the only single-entry estimating system that allows each user to enter a piece of information once, and have that data flow directly from the estimate, specifications, selections, bids, change orders, budgets, and to and from QuickBooks with no double entry! It also has various other capabilities as well, such as scheduling, communication, portals, files, photos, to-dos, time clock, job log, warranty and more - making it a total stand out from the competition!

Return on Investment

Accelo

  • It substantially reduced the number of systems we use to run our business.
  • It reduced the need to train our staff on a variety of platforms.
  • It gave us the ability to have a client-facing portal that directly integrates with our backend systems.

  • Helps to keep the schedule on track.
  • Allows for ease of communication, eliminating open ends within the project team.
  • One time entry with information carrying though different aspects of the project, saving time and money!
