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

SharpeSoft Estimator

SharpeSoft [is] designed to be a day-to-day hard-bid estimating program. It is easy to learn and use, yet very powerful. I would not recommend this product to hourly service providers.
Mark Scoccolo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pros

AccuLynx

  • Tracking progress of project
  • Note/Message Keeping
  • Reports
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SharpeSoft Estimator

  • Handles complex bid formats and bid submittal structures such as using bid alternates and non-tax bid schedules.
  • This software is one of the easiest programs to learn and effectively use.
  • This software is reasonably priced, but very powerful.
  • Project support is timely, intimate, local and professional.
Mark Scoccolo | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
Stan Robinson | TrustRadius Reviewer

SharpeSoft Estimator

  • They need to put a search bar in the item master list so you can easily find work items.
  • They could make the alternate package easier to use.
  • The should find a way to allow the user to define at least one cost type in the program.

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.

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.

SharpeSoft Estimator

I think SharpeSoft is the best estimating product on the market for our type of work. It is reasonably priced and is very reliable. We have had very few problems with the software and the upgrades and support staff and reliable.
