If you have a home exterior company this is the best software!! Especially roof, gutters & siding. If you run a different company like you only handle decks, landscaping or maybe drywall, etc. This would not be the software for you

ADVANTAGE

Any integrated agency (more than just a single-discipline agency) that's looking for a one-stop shop to manage all aspects of running the business would do well to consider Advantage as the single-source tool to do it all. Single-discipline agencies could probably find a less robust tool that's equally as effective for tracking and reporting.

Pros

AccuLynx

  • AccuLynx has an unending back end database that can be customized for every item that you put into an estimate. We can make proposals extremely detailed and perform tasks was in the estimate to limit information or expand all information.
  • AccuLynx transfers all the estimated material to the order then within the order process you can alter, add, or delete any item with a few clicks.

ADVANTAGE

  • Timekeeping. While there are many other products that do this well in a vacuum, the way it integrates with the other functions is outstanding.
  • Project management. Opening new jobs, filling out creative briefs and trafficking projects is fairly easy and the options are robust.
  • Reporting. In particular, running time reports is a simple process that's both intuitive and effective.

Cons

AccuLynx

  • Entering new leads - it would be nice if you could tab through the entire form, so you don't have to waste time using the mouse. Makes data entry so much faster.
  • More production reports.
  • Place to track material brands and colors of the different trades you complete, so you can run a report later and find all the jobs you installed Black shingles, etc.
  • More options to adjust user permissions.
Katie Higgins | TrustRadius Reviewer

ADVANTAGE

  • Advantage is hugely cumbersome. There are hundreds of functions I will never use, and that I'm not sure anyone else in the organization uses.
  • The user interface could be better. Every time there's an update, there's a small but definitive learning curve.

Until someone shows me something more efficient or has features that are more streamlined and time is saved by all then I am all ears and ready to listen to that presentation. I wouldn't care at this point if I had to abandon QB if the system had it's own integrated accounting system otherwise it has to be able to do all and more of the features of QB and the CRM side also has to have/do more than AccuLynx features.

They can always improve and we are very successful when calling support. I would suggest they keep their support technicians available later for the west coast contractors who need help at the end of the day. We've come to know many of the techs because we call to offer suggestions but there's a process for us to follow for that.

Alternatives Considered

AccuLynx

JobNimbus you have to customize it yourself and it's very time consuming to get it up and running efficiently and smoothly. AccuLynx is very intuitive and easy to use. This helps so much especially in the construction side. Also, AccuLynx can estimate easily which JobNimbus does not do at all. Buildertrend is good but really more for General Contractors who are builders. Not exterior remodelers.

ADVANTAGE

I was not a member of the team that made the decision about whether to use Advantage, so I can't provide this level of context. I can say that I've evaluated other solutions in the past and Advantage is a far more robust product than any of the others. As a user, I can say that it's been very easy to use and I have not found a single function I needed that it couldn't deliver for me.

Return on Investment

AccuLynx

  • The software is expensive, but if everyone utilizes it to its capacity it's well worth it.
  • Less time is spent searching for information because it is all at your fingertips.
  • Increased productivity in the overall company, which means we can handle a higher work load = higher revenue.
Katie Higgins | TrustRadius Reviewer

ADVANTAGE

  • Advantage has everything to do with our company's ability to run an effective back office.
  • When you have a company that does a wide variety of concurrent projects, you need a great tool to manage it all. Advantage does that for us.
  • As I am unfamiliar with the pricing model (I'm not a member of the team that negotiates this particular product), I can't provide any true ROI from an overall business perspective.
