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

Vista by Viewpoint is surely a accounting-based program. It is more aimed at the financial health and wellness reporting on a project rather than a day-to-day operations system. This is great for internal office employees that understand the accounting behind a construction project and how it affects the success of the build. This is not a program used for field employees to know where the project stands.

  • 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.

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.
Katie Higgins | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vista by Viewpoint

  • Its history is that most entries are transaction-based, requiring batch processing. Some of these could be moved to background batch processing so the batching would be more transparent to the user.
  • More data needs to be available on mobile devices. They are making a move in this direction, which is good.
  • Some screens allow flexibility of viewing data in grid views, but the export of this data to Excel could be improved. This is mostly seen in Workcenters.

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.

It's very customizable and accessible outside of Vista itself (SQL, Excel, home grown programs, etc.), but Viewpoint is very slow at fixing bugs and adding suggestions from their suggestion box. If this last area was better, I would have given this a 9 or 10.

Vista is a very easy product to learn and use. It is extremely customizable. If you need additional fields or even complete tables, this product allows for it. It helps to have someone on your team that understands SQL databases, but if you have that you can accomplish just about anything you need this product to do.

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.

Though I have not interfaced with Vista by Viewpoint's support team, I know my office has, and it seems like changes or issues are addressed or resolved in a timely manner. It also seems like the program has the flexibility to integrate or be changed to become a custom solution for our company.

The trainer Viewpoint sent did not understand the processes, he only knew where the modules were located. He had no understanding of the actual process itself.

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.

Vista by Viewpoint

Both are very similar software. I really like Vista by Viewpoint. If it were my job to choose, but it is not. I would most likely go with Vista because It is completely user friendly, easily trainable and easily mobile. I am sure there is even more difference but I am not sure of any huge differences

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

Vista by Viewpoint

  • HR Management product is great and has made on boarding to time off requests and everything in between very easy, functional and efficient
  • Very scaleable product that has easily handled a 30% increase in employee headcount
  • Sometimes hard to be a specialty contractor with a product that tries to appeal to general contractors as well.
