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.

I would think that any service or construction outfit could utilize this software effectively.

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.

  • Helps create design drawings for clients.
  • Helps quickly and effectively estimate equipment needed for projects.

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.

  • I use just part of the software, and they frequently enhance the software so I really have no additional needs at this time.

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 would give it a ten, but I had a bad experience with a support person the last time I called, so I'm lowering it to 67%. I am 100% satisfied 2/3rds of the time when I contact support

I believe Bluebeam Revu has several more bells and whistles compared to Esticom. However I believe the simplicity of Esticom was its biggest selling point to me. It is extremely easy to use and even easier to train others on how to use it. I also believe it has a better price point.

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.

Esticom

  • It has allowed us to adjust any aspect of a quote and thus become more profitable.
  • This platform is far more organized than we previously were.
