Accelo

It is really well suited for organizations that need to have a lot of tools but don't want a bunch of data silos. Our organization uses HubSpot as our CRM so we don't necessarily use the CRM portion of Accelo the way it is designed. Mainly because it isn't as agile as HubSpot from a CRM perspective.

This is not a sticks-and-bricks estimating system. If you are a paper contractor using all subs, it will work great. If you use a separate estimating system, you can use it for selections and budgets and change orders.

Cons

  • The client portal needs to be improved. It does not have the same user interface as we have within Accelo and we get a lot of client complaints about it.
  • It needs more executive-style reporting and the ability to create your own reports and filters.
  • It needs to be faster. With all of the things Accelo is doing to give you all the data, it is kind of slow compared to other systems in the browser.

  • Lead reporting -- the data is there, but the report formats can be improved upon

Alternatives Considered

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.

Their communcation system is unparallelled. I've checked into the others (UDA-- NEVER EVER BUY FROM THEM! Builder Trend-- their communication system isn't as good.)

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • Makes communication and documentation easy.
  • Makes selections and change orders easier.
