If you are looking for a basic CRM this tool would work. It has lots of room to grow.

As I stated, we primarily use it for managing specific government issued projects. It is quick, simple and secure which is perfectly fine by us. The notifications are quick and give enough information so you know what is going on with your project.

Pros

  • Allows you to send emails directly from the target's account
  • Allows you to create tasks
  • Keeping track of notes made is easy

  • Centralizes data and makes it easily accessible. Being able to drag and drop files into their respective folders saves time uploading and searching for them down the road.
  • Streamlines change order process and allows users a more transparent way to track.
  • Allows users to update project schedule for not only project tracking but for billings.

Cons

  • Difficult to upload targets
  • Not easy to modify a target
  • When uploading targets you can not attach them to tags until after they are uploaded.
  • When listing opportunities in the system, you are limited with what stage the opportunity is in and the star system is not very helpful. The status' are very vague and not always accurate.

  • It would be great if EB can introduce an asset management module where we can tie assets to a project. This is the biggest issue I am currently having. If you can develop this, it would make Finance, Engineering, and Operations life easier. In addition, synchronize data out in field to EB for creating specific reports. For example, in water utility environment, knowing how much total linear feet of water line pipes were installed per day, per month, or per year. Furthermore, know what size pipe was installed.
  • Help improve the Planning Module and make it more user friendly, similar to the updates made to Schedule Module
  • Provide better reporting options on Dashboard Module. For example, allowing us to choose different types of charts, colors, etc.
  • Improve the speed connection downtime which always happens around 1230am-2pm EST. EB really drags in speed when already logged in or having to log in to access the system.

Because again, one of our biggest clients entrusts E-builder to work with their systems. And its functions work for us as well.

Again, because our technical support is great. He doesn't always answer the phone but he definitely responds to emails fairly quickly. In addition, I like that he actually resolves an issue and I have yet to encounter the same issue twice. Actually, I haven't encountered many issues at all in the two years I have used the software.

1. Set up the time to get training on the sytem before you go all in.
2. Listen, ask questions and actually practice using the tools and features while in class. It helps tremendously with becoming comfortable and remembering how things work.
3. Don't be afraid to mess up. They are helpful and will help resolve your issue in a timely manner

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.

EB is user friendly and stacks up very high, compared to the others.

Return on Investment

  • Allows our growing team to have more client information and context accessible during client interactions.

  • Helps us manage specific projects well, and we have seen payment of our submitted invoices being processed faster than other clients. We are quite happy.
