AccuLynx

AccuLynx is well-suited for pretty much everything we do. We can go back to scanned documents of service tickets, orders, maps, contract proposals, pictures or any other details of the job. I'm not sure where it would be less appropriate. To do accurate job costing we need to grab time on our T-Sheets program and job cost on the QuickBooks side to manage true job costing.

Autodesk Bim 360

Bim360 is okay to use in the field. I feel there are far more superior products or software out there to use. Bim360 isn't the easiest to use and takes time to learn. Additionally, flipping through plans is like flipping through a book, it's a slow process unless you know specifically where/what is on each page needed.

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.

Autodesk Bim 360

  • Allows office personnel to efficiently coordinate with other trades.
  • It allows field personnel to make decision on the fly if changes need to be made to the originally coordinated designs.

Cons

AccuLynx

  • Pricing in the database for each item is done manually due to the merger of two large suppliers nationally who decided to write their own database and estimating program and disconnect themselves from AccuLynx that had the ability to automatically update pricing. I feel that was a huge mistake on the part of the supplier. AccuLynx is trying to rectify that relationship.
  • It's unfortunate that the only calendaring option is Google Calendar. We are very tied to Outlook which we feel is more user-friendly and we know it well.

Autodesk Bim 360

  • CAD file collaboration is unstable.
  • Can not search the text of drawings or specs to find words. This is a huge deal breaker.
  • Cannot zoom in all the way on the drawing to see details blown up.

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.

I have not had the opportunity to use the support for Bim360 - this is the reason for only giving it a "1 rating." The general contractor has always answered my related questions and/or concerns when using this program/software. I cannot give an honest opinion on the support function unless I use it. I would hope it would be very supportive such as Fieldwire, Procore, etc.

Autodesk Bim 360

Bim360 is an immature, oversold, and under-delivered product that is simply the only option available for collaboration when you are locked into the Autodesk Revit ecosystem. SharePoint Online, Dropbox Business, and other cloud file management and sharing solutions show you the potential of clouds when they are implemented and deployed correctly, and directly contrasts with the present state of the BIM 360 platform.

Return on Investment

AccuLynx

  • AccuLynx has been growing and improving since we started with then 6+ years ago. IT's been great to see the changes and the suggestion center where we give feedback has been listened to.
  • Negative would be the cost of course, but if I think about it, manual record-keeping would be ridiculous to try to manage outside of AccuLynx with spreadsheets and servers for pictures. One tool does it all in my mind serves us better.

Autodesk Bim 360

  • We are able to avoid potential issues due to lack of communication between parties involved on the project.
  • Ease of model updating.
  • Ability to share with the client in an easy-to-grasp way.
