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

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

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.

e-Builder

  • Easy organization once it is set up in the system correctly.
  • On time notifications of updates or changes.
  • Fast submission of invoices for processing. Usually notifies the appropriate personnel shortly after I submit it. Payment is prompt.

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.

e-Builder

  • We have MS Project 2016 and it doesn't interface with the new schedule module.
  • We have multiple layers of submittal approvals. Additional functionality to reflect how submittals are reviewed would be great.
  • The new schedule module Save button is in a location that is not intuitive to look for. If it could auto save or not be all the way on the upper right hand side, it would be easier to use.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

EB is user friendly and stacks up very high, compared to the others.

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.

  • Transparency has helped put team members all in the appropriate "know".
  • The idea that everything is basically kept in one place has helped our project with coordination and planning.
  • Ease of use has helped contribute to time savings.
