AccuLynx Software


 

AccuLynx is a complete construction estimating program that offers bid management, project scheduling, project management, accounting, service management, and customer relationship management within one cohesive system.

AccuLynx provides an easy-to-use tool that helps users follow the history of a job from lead to payment. The system saves all conversations within each job history, so it is easy for users to look back and see when and why each decision was made; all job orders are saved, eliminating arguments with suppliers and ensuring materials are delivered on time; and every action within a job’s timeline is documented, so there are no more forgotten tasks or failed handoffs. Communication is also enhanced via AccuLynx’s mobile app, which allows all users access in the field so they are on the same page at all times.

We especially like AccuLynx’s ability to store every photo and document on their cloud server. Everyone involved with a project can view PDFs, Microsoft Word and Excel docs, videos, permits, and any other collateral necessary to complete each job. This feature not only creates a more collaborative work environment, but all data is backed up twice, which means nothing important is ever lost.

AccuLynx has been active since 2008 and helped contractors process over $2 billion in sales in 2013. Because of the system’s collaborative interface, the average company on AccuLynx experiences 60% revenue growth. AccuLynx is best suited for small-to-mid-sized companies with up to 50 employees and 50 users and works in a variety of industries with specialty trade contractors, including residential masonry, residential remodelers, roofing and siding, and residential finishing.

Pros

User-friendly
Color coding
Clear-cut reporting

Cons

A little on the pricey side - especially for a start-up like us

Advice to Others

Make use of the "Knowledge Base." You will find an answer to pretty much any question you may have.

We started using Acculynx about three months ago. So far it has been easy to use for calendar scheduling. It is also great to pull up a customer's details immediately. There is still much more available in the software that we have not even begun to scratch the surface on. We are currently awaiting the estimating module to be completed. We are using a third party for estimating and it will be nice once we have everything in one app.

Pros

Ease of use
Information quick to recall easily

Cons

The product is still being developed. Some of the items that we thought would be built are still being worked on. The mobile app is not fully built. You can go to a browser to get the information, but it will be nice once everything is built into the app.

Advice to Others

I would recommend this product. I would just be sure the functionality you are looking for is currently built and not in development.

N/A

We like Acculynx but it was made for production, not sales. Although it does show the amounts that each salesman has in "approved jobs" which does promote some healthy competition. Training and customer service is excellent.


Pros

Acculynx Pros:
Can pin jobs on a map and lay purchased hail "swaths" as overlays to see affected past clients
Has an app to use on phone & tablet
Is embedded with national supplier materials lists for easy ordering
Everyone has easy access to job information and updates

Cons

Acculynx Cons:
App has no calendar feature
No front end follow up programs to utilize in maximizing sales
No way to customize notification preferences (IE: which emails to receive or not to receive that is the question)

Advice to Others

This is expensive and you will have to have a front end follow up process to turn your leads into approved jobs. However as far as the options go this is one of the best and designed specifically for the roofing industry which is important.

We like how everything can be done through one program. We start from leads (which you can track ) to writing estimates, measurements, ordering supplies, invoicing and record keeping. It is so nice to type in a name and see a full history on that customer, it takes away the running around to find the file and sticky notes all over place. It is a great way to also make sure the staff is following up with customers and allows our employees to be aware every step of what is going on with a particular customer.

Likes Least

The only thing I did not like was on their mobile app was you couldn't use the calendar unless you go to the website through your phone or tablet.

Recommendations

This program has definitely been a game changer for us, I would recommend trying it because you will fall in love with it!

Cannot customize any fields, have been unexplainable math errors in the past, the phone app is poor.

Recommendations

AccuLynx has its faults, but is a young company and continues to improve. Contracting software is often expensive and focused on large projects. I highly recommend AccuLynx for small business contractors, especially roofers. I would really like to see more user customization though. A contacts list would be great too.

Likes Least

It takes a while for improvements to be made. They are working on a lot of great things, and I think they have to prioritize what they spend their time on, which is only normal.

Recommendations

Make sure you check into every detail before selecting a software to use. Training a lot of people how to use it and getting them to use it correctly can be a challenging task and you don't want to have to switch software companies and retrain people on it. Take your time to select the correct software the first time. It took us 6 months to pick a software, after asking tons of questions and doing demos with other companies. We are glad that we picked Acculynx, I would highly recommend it to any roofing contractor.

The thing I like best is that I have a full scope of the business at any given time that I can access from anywhere. I never have to call or question anything, all I have to do is just pull out my phone and its right there. As an owner or manager there is no excuses anymore to not have a handle on the entirity of the business when using software such as Acculynx. The vendor designed this products foundation for the industry that we specialize in, thier customer support is fantastic and they have some of the best "Techys" in the world working for them.

Likes Least

The thing I like least about acculynx is if your internet connection is weak such as reps using a hotels wifi sometimes it can cause glitches in the system that are annoying. Least thing I like about the vendor is that they have a cool slide in their office and we don't. I guess thats more of a jealous thing though.......

Recommendations

If you currently are using magnet boards, your sales reps all have everything in paper files, and you dont really see whats going on in the company until its submitted as a contract, this software will give you the missing link to grow your business and really dial it in.

Its hard to narrow it down to one thing but some of the things I like best are: ease of tracking everything, user friendly, easy to navigate, tech support is friendly, knowledgeable, and reliable.

Likes Least

The app sends notifications directly without the job number or name of the homeowner so I don't know who its referring to. I have to wait for the emailed notification to see that info. So I get 2 notifications for each comment, gets to be a bit much. Other than the app issue, no issues with the product itself.

Recommendations

Compare all the features side by side and look at the other software's customer service.

Best CRM program for contractors by far, but it's much more than that! It's all at your fingers. Access from anywhere in the county where you can have a computer connected to the web. Love the integration with QuickBooks, which eliminated the multiple entries. Managing multiple locations all fluidly from Acculynx. All your reports and numbers are right there. Honestly, we operate everything through Acculynx and QB, and it's so smooth. Very easy to use. Department capabilities so office staff and sales reps view what you determine necessary. Our new hire got on for 5 min and messaged me to say, "Wow this program seems really user-friendly" if that says anything!

Likes Least

There is nothing I that least like! I think the program is awesome and a giant leap in the industry. We started with Acculynx back when it was still its first version. I can tell you that they are always trying to improve and make advancements anywhere they can. So be understanding if something in the system changes. I promise it's for the better! We all get used to using something one way and people seem to resist change. These improvements come from our feedback like this, and they are hearing it and implementing. Previously, the reps would push back if there was a software update, but then the "awwww" moment comes later in the day and they love the improvements. So definitely appreciate it!

Recommendations

Honestly, you can shop around if it makes you feel better, but I know you will be confident in this program once you use it. Implement it and use its full potential. You will be very happy that you did. Your entire customer database, how the sales were generated, message board so all information is saved regarding customer or file, estimating templates, eagleview integration into estimate, contract pricing and balance worksheet, production calender and scheduling, AR reports, sales reports all in one place.
You can break it down by status of job, enter all your documents and photos on the job. I could go on. Another great feature is the phone app that is so quick and efficient.
It's designed by someone who understands what you need as a business owner or manager and put into action by intelligent tech force.
