Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.

Flowlu

[Flowlu is] well suited if you are looking for a single business management program and one that you are willing to grow with since it is a newer product. They are very receptive and quick with their improvements though. It may not be for you if you need what you need right now and cannot live without specific things, for now.

Pros

Cosential

  • Inputting of companies and leads who may become prospects.
  • Creating specific opportunities for construction projects.
  • Tracking opportunities through the entire sales cycle.
  • Inputting detailed notes and activity by the Sales team.

Flowlu

  • The interface is really simple and intuitive. It didn't take me long to figure things out on my own.
  • I like the ability to create subtasks and assign those subtasks to different people, independent of who's assigned to the main task. And you can even set deadlines, or track time spent on tasks.
  • The different task views and the ability to have almost granular control over the search filters can really come in handy, especially if your business has many moving parts. Likewise, the ability to create automations with a variety of customizable conditions can really be helpful in streamlining workflows.
  • The ability to create different project workflows, each with its own predefined tasks, milestones, etc., can really be helpful when managing multiple campaigns and/or client-related projects.
  • I like the ability to sync Flowlu calendar with Google calendar—as well as the ability to connect any email inbox to Flowlu. Likewise, I think it's great that they have the option to integrate with online payment gateways like PayPal, Stripe, and Square as it makes things even easier on the client side.
  • You can create your own lists if you want to record any important information for your business.

Cons

Cosential

  • The open software is somewhat difficult to master as an administrator.
  • Report writing could be more intuitive.
  • The company seems to cater to larger users.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Flowlu

  • More integrations should be coming. They do offer webhooks already, so that's a plus.
  • Client portal is on the roadmap. This will be very important to making it a full-fledged all-in-one app.
  • I wish you could create multiple databases with the CRM; have to settle for tags.

I have found Flowlu while searching [for] a collaborative tool for a friend's non-profit organization. As I read the description and made a trial test, I fell in love with the tool. So we are definitely going to renew. Not only because the delivered solutions are great but also because Flowlu's roadmap seems very [promising].

Cosential is very intuitive for the AEC industry and has the ability to be customized for your specific needs. The reports are especially helpful, with good visual dashboards.

While Flowlu has a LOT of features, it's clear that thought has been placed into customization and allowing you to hide what you don't need through an 'app selection' ability. For example, if you don't need to pipe in email into Flowlu, you simply don't install the "Email" app, preventing the interface from becoming too overwhelming.

My original trainer / implementation specialist was fantastic. That relationship has continued, even though I have been officially handed off to the customer service side. The customer service side seems to have higher turnover than normal, but in general they are also very supportive, although not as responsive as I might like.

Overall, I love the way Flowlu is directing (sorry in my mind I always say “flowfu” I don’t know haha!!) I love that I found this LTD in Appsumo and would like to stack more If I can but being in a third-world country, It will be difficult so I am taking advantage of this limited time offer. Thank you for bringing such amazing app! I am really hoping to grow myself as an individual and also my future company with you in the years to come.

Alternatives Considered

Cosential

Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Flowlu

I have tried MANY of the Project Management / CRM platforms out there. But somehow none of them quite hit the mark. I even got to the point where I was wondering if something was wrong me and my business practices! For whatever reason, none of the other tools seemed quite right for what I needed. They fell short in a few significant areas that caused me to eventually abandon them or not trust them enough, in the beginning, to fully embrace them. They did one or two things really well, but then I had to find another tool for other key functionality. Flowlu seems like a tool that I can not only benefit from today but can grow into over the years, especially as new features are brought online.
