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.

It's great if you want to plan out months in advance, as you can literally see and plan how many days something will take and what order things need to be done in. However, you can't easily add client gaps in between that would show the reality of reviews, etc. without messing up your other data.

Pros

  • Retainer Management - I am not sure we could run retainers effectively without it.
  • Hour Logging and Tracking.
  • Customer Email Tracking.
Chris Osterhout profile photo
  • Good looking Gantt charts help make it easy to know what's going on.
  • Organizes priorities. People have no question of what they should be working on and also have clarity around what others are doing.
  • Shows the effects of what happens when things are running late visually and typically allows us to make up the slack faster.

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.

  • No integration. We wish it could integrate with our project management system to make things faster.
  • Hard to add multiple dependencies.
  • Could have better views/reporting.

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.

We have used products like Gantter as well as the two above and they all do basically the same thing. Cost was the biggest determining factor for us. They all looked pretty, functioned the same, and some had better integration... however we determined that for our team size, TeamGantt was the best option for the long-term.

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.

  • It helps us stick much closer to our deadlines than we would without it
  • We are more efficient with it
  • Much better team awareness and engagement
