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.

eSUB Construction Software

As a subcontractor - yes (overheads are a big deal, this can help manage it by being simple and productive)As a general contractor - no (I think there are more things a GC would need at their disposal)If your whole company is on board it can be a powerful tool, but everyone -even site workers, need to be 100% on-board. It can't do what it's supposed to do if only some are using it.

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.

  • Using multiple contacts over multiple jobs. Vendors, customers, personnel etc...
  • Sending out RFIs, submittals etc... to multiple people at the same time
  • Correspondence templates with drop downs makes sending out letters etc... effortless

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.

eSUB Construction Software

  • We use Microsoft daily for many things, its an essential program for many areas - the more eSUB can integrate with its core programs the more seamless the transition and daily use.
  • Its display platform could use a bit more of a face lift. It reminded me of late 2010's web-design or Microsoft visuals.
  • Its app functionality struggled in some areas, we tried using it but found there to be some bugs. Although IT was very helpful in response.

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.

Procore has a lot of layers and bells and whistles. eSUB is your meat and potatoes. I found eSUB more suited for our company vs Procore. However, Procore would be more suited to general contractors. eSUB didn't allow as much integration with Microsoft as Procore, but it wasn't significant enough for that to be a deciding factor. I think the difference comes down to what kind of company you are: if you have a lot to manage then maybe Procore if you just need organization, record keeping, budget structuring and get the job done then maybe eSUB.

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.

eSUB Construction Software

  • eSUB saves time as you don't have to type, print and send documents.
  • I like to call it "set it up once, use it a million times" as once you set up a customer, vendor etc... you can use them across multiple platforms.
  • It saves money as you don't need a pool of resources to manage a project due to its ease of use.
