    Accelo

    Accelo is a system that can do it all. It's extremely sophisticated. Depending on the sophistication of your organization, or specifically the abilities of the people you put in charge of the implementation, it can almost be too sophisticated. It all just depends on your situation. The more you use it, the more data you give it, the more you'll be able to see and do. It's incredibly powerful. But it's definitely not a tool that would be appropriate for smaller boutique type organizations that have only basic needs.

    e-Builder

    Well suited for the owner's side of managing multiple projects as it allows for all aspects of a project from development to closeout to be managed on one platform. Not as appropriate for a general contractor as there is better software out there. e-Builder's app is not as effective as others.

    Pros

    Accelo

    • Timing Client Work: You are able to better manage your time on your clients.
    • Housing Client Info in one Area: You can view all you need for any given client in one area.

    e-Builder

    • Provide a document structure that is easy to navigate. All documents, even within a process, are stored in the document structure and easily accessed by those with the correct permissions.
    • Scheduling, especially with the new module is easy. It is helpful with a large organization where many hands touch projects to be able to forecast workloads (we have an in house engineering team who reviews all projects during their design phase)
    • Allows for easy interface with contractors and makes the submittal process more straightforward.

    Cons

    Accelo

    • Accelo is excellent on the adaptation to its deep functionalities.
    • Managing multiple project is very challenging.
    • Not easy to collect multiple reports across platforms.
    Johnson Martins | TrustRadius Reviewer

    e-Builder

    • The restrictions in formatting, and sorting of information rendered, in a way, affects the reporting output.
    • At certain times of day, e-Builder traffic causes the loading of filtered searches to take a while. This is probably common regardless of the site or software used.
    • More complicated reporting has some limitation, though the program is highly efficient in assisting with simple format reports.

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

    From the beginning the Accelo team has been very invested in ensuring our success and overall happiness with the platform. The initial implementation specialists and trainers did a fairly good job of learning our company and needs, and tried to tailor the trainings accordingly. However, once we made the formal switch to the platform, meaning we no longer were using our legacy systems, we found that we had a lot of questions....and a lot of ideas and recommendations. The support team is extremely responsive and seemingly happy to receive our continual feedback. And if we encounter an issue that seems to be a system issue, they work diligently to fix it (we've actually had an engineer join a call with us to learn of the issue - and subsequently fix it)

    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

    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 not compared other plans since the boss prefers this program from personal experience. But from using this program for 2 years I can see why we don't need to compare. Why fix something that isn't broken? It gets the job done, yes we might run into some issues but I feel like with all companies that can happen

    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.

    e-Builder

    • Has added extra steps to processes that were previously easier. And I work for a university that complicates everything
    • Has more than cut in half the time it takes to generate reports about project status
    • Has made project management more efficient
