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

ConstructConnect Insight

It is very well suited for finding projects where your product is specified, and I just use my company name. but, for other keywords, great.. and then it highlights where you are on the document that comes up. Also, it tells you how many times in the specific project documents it is found so you can find all of them.Not sure, but we're not sure how legal, or ethical, it is for the database to show contact names, phone and email addresses. We don't believe those people appreciate unqualified inclusion in company databases for marketing communication.. ie e-newsletters, etc.

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.

ConstructConnect Insight

  • My favorite part of ConstructConnect is the ability to have detailed specifications that are up to date. We have used other software in the past that sadly could not keep even 50% of posted specifications up to date.
  • The tracking process is great! I have 5-6 personal lists and lists that are created for our team by the ConstructConnect team that tracks different projects for different teams we have.
  • The user-friendly way to search for thousands of projects, products, and companies.

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.

  • Too many false positives.
  • Slow speeds on occasion.

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.

They frequently check-in to make sure you are being properly helped and are quick with a response if you need something.

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.

don't know, haven't used or even courted anyone else for this purpose. Found Reed years ago at ASHRAE/AHR expo, and started it with their pitch then and their good assistance since then.

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

ConstructConnect Insight

  • It's had a huge impact since we switched to it. I do not have exact numbers to share but I would say we have increased weekly leads significantly in the last three years.
  • The time it saves is great! I know that we can trust that 95% of the information we see on ConstructConnect is up to date. This typically will save me multiple calls/emails daily.
  • The only negative thing I can think of is we have fewer interactions with other people daily, whether that be face to face, by phone, or email.
