Pros: If you work in the New Home Construction marketplace and deal with "buyer options" you have to buy this package. It is the only software package that I have seen that addresses buyer options.

Cons: The software is at least partially designed to work with general contractors and builders too so it has some a little trouble crossing over for subcontractors in some cases. However, overall it is the best subcontractor oriented package I have seen in the marketplace and the price is very attractive.

Overall: Good value for the price, decent user support, excellent adaptability for subcontractors, could be better in reporting, general ledger entry and paying invoices with credit cards.

On the project I am assigned to we use AccuBuild on a large highway and bridge contract.

Pros: User friendly. Support is quick and efficient. Document routing is fantastic and cuts down on paper docs and files in the office. We are on the implementation team so we get to share ideas and requests. Being able to export information to a pdf and/or excel are a plus.

Cons: Not many cons, especially with being on the implementation team. Occasionally there are hang-ups but this may be caused by our internet connection.

Overall: I came from a QuickBooks environment so this software is much more detail oriented. The document routing is fantastic and also many reports you are able to drilldown to see the document.

I find Accubuild relatively easy to learn and use.

Pros: I like the document routing section the best. It is easy to attach documents and to code them with the correct phase and GL codes. It is convenient and easy to teach all of the approval users how to use it to look at their invoices for approval.

Cons: I wish there was a search button in the documents tab in the vendors list. I have some vendors that have a lot of documents and it is hard to find the one i am looking for when i have to scroll through hundreds of documents.

Overall: I like how you can pull a job cost capsheet and look to see if there is a budget in certain codes for me to code things to.

Pros: AccuBuild's customer service gets back to us within hours (or minutes if it's pressing) and is very knowledgeable about their system and construction accounting. Our year-end tax needs including W2's and 1099's are now much more straightforward and simpler.

Cons: As a small contractor with only two users, their annual fee to renew a license is somewhat steep but the staff is willing to work with our requirements.

Overall: It takes care of most of our accounting job costing needs and the staff is willing to step in to adopt reports to our specific needs

Pros: Ease of use. Very easy to learn the system. And they give so many hours of free training included with the sale so if you have questions they are there with an answer.

Cons: Very hard to come up with a least favorite. We have several banks and we use blank check stock.

Accubuild initially did not have a way to accommodate this issue. However they quickly came up with a fix.

Overall: Everything is great. When there is a question, Accubuild is quick to resolve it. Price keeps going up but so does the price of milk, and gasoline so....

Pros: Aside from having the cost details available in the job cost capsheet, I especially like that you can send reports to excel in addition to the pdf prints.

Cons: Though the excel reports are what I like the most, I will state that this also is a part of being the least (since I like most of AccuBuild) since many reports have to be properly formatted since the data will be in different columns throughout the report.

Overall: All encompassing processing for all accounting functions and detailed reporting for jobs.

Pros: Cloud based so it can be access from anywhere. Ease of use, provides one stop functionality for the financial area of a construction business. Also helps with project management, tracks submittals, has a scheduling tool.

Cons: Customization of reporting is difficult. As a cloud based user it will not allow access to manage users when maintenance is required, as such you must call support to assist.

Cons: I think the project management portion is hard to use.

I don't like the support anymore. It used to be that when you called your questions or problems were solved asap. Now it is difficult to get a call back and when they do get back to us we can't understand them most of the time.

Comments: As a user for over 20 years AccuBuild has been a key component for our success. As a contractor specializing in the technology field it is important we are aligned with the leader in Acoounting Software.

Cons: There are features that are "add-ons" that we feel should be standard with the Project Management module. All-in-all it is a good program.

Pros: I like the ability to choose several jobs for a report at one time and that they don't need to be in order. Document scanning and indexing is very fast and easy; we can index to several modules at the same time too, such as an A/P invoice indexed both to the vendor and to the job.

Cons: We're unable to change entries once they have been posted; there's no editing allowed. You have to either void and re-enter or enter a reversing entry and then the correct one. We're unable to search for the job number, client, or G/L entry you're looking for. All reports balloon up super large, and if you resize smaller, you get a tiny little box that you then have to manually enlarge to a normal size window.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do lots of demos, ask lots of questions, and don't accept any easy answers. Get specific in asking to see how to do what you currently do in your business or what you think you'll need if it's a new company. Many things that I took for granted would be standard simply are not with this software, and perhaps they would not have been with the other software I looked at. Things like repeating entries in accounts payable and general ledger. We pay our salespeople a cell phone allowance monthly, and it sure was nice to set that up one time, hit repeat, choose once monthly, and be done. In AB, I have to enter the invoice for each salesperson every month. The same goes for our monthly depreciation entry and the property tax accrual.

Comments: I have been managing businesses for about 20 years and know that every software has good and bad. Some are great at job cost accounting but terrible at financial accounting, others have great reporting but horrible document processing. So far AccuBuild has partnered with us at every step and helped us where we see our inefficiencies with their software. That kind of support is not available at the other companies out there.

Pros: This is a personal relationship driven company and they do listen. We have been with them since 2014 and grown with them. Their ability to adapt the software to our needs has been the best feature we could have asked for.

Cons: Some of the solutions, like Payroll, have issues that they are aware of. Creating workarounds is not efficient. The only bright side of that is they are aware and always working on improvement.

Cons: Most functions any non basic user would need or want have to be purchased in modules. Other programs offer those same tools. Anything is possible with Accubuild but i found most things came at an additional cost

Overall: Ease of use when it comes to generating reports. I like how easily i can drill into things and see the actual invoice, backup etc. The job cost report functions make my life so much easier.

Pros: I am a power user in our org and after the initial learning curve I find the software to be fairly good in regards to usability and functionality. There are limitations to its functionality that we encounter at times that we have to find work arounds for and documentation isn't always helpful. But as a daily user on the financial side of the software I am happy with it.

Cons: I wish the software had web integration and slight customization offered as part of its standard license package - this is an industry norm of most enterprise software systems and it seems if we want to go down this route with AB it will be expensive and very time consuming. Our experience with customization projects has proven this to be the case to date. Also, a feeling I have with regards to software development, whether it is legit, is that AB focuses on the wish list of a small group of companies they have a close relationship with.

Pros: Having RFI, COR, Submittal and CO logs all in one place. It's easy to sort between them or see them all at once. Plus, I can store relevant emails in the available folders, which helps to tell the story.

When printing forms, the PDF export works faster than printing to Adobe PDF.

Customer support is excellent.

Once you know the personality of the software, you can use it effectively and quickly. The Tab key is your friend.

Cons: There are inconsistencies. Using the Tab key is the best way to navigate the program, but in certain areas, you must use the mouse.

Deleting a log entry must by done by pressing the delete key. You cannot get the standard right click menu.

You will have to learn how to use Ctrl + c/ Ctrl +v because you cannot right click and copy/paste while filling out certain areas of the RFI, COR and Submittal forms.

Overall: Customized forms.

Pros: General Ledger and Accounts Payable are easy to use but they should be. They are standard programs. Payroll seems to work pretty well with certified payrolls.

Cons: Job cost programs. Hard to get what I want in your programs. No standard job cost reports. Try to do a time range and job range and cannot do. Not very user friendly.

Overall: Work pretty well for basic information but not very user friendly if you want something out of the ordinary

I'm getting up to speed on the many, many functions of the software.

Comments: Since we never actually used the software other than the test mode, I don't know if they would have eventually won us over. I do know that we purchased their expensive product and from that point on we had problems with it. We expected a software, for that price, to be well-tested. After we gave up on it, they never checked to see why we weren't using it and refused to refund any portion of it. They have not made any attempt to make it right with us for 2 years now.

Pros: Drill down menus, nice reports, job information, and graphs.

Cons: We wanted to eliminate paper timecards and use "mobile timecards" out in the field that could easily be transferred to the office payroll and job costing. This was their selling point to us and they showed us great examples. After purchasing their expensive product, we paid for someone to help with installation and data transfer. This was fine except when it came time to try the mobile timecards, the software would lock up and did not work properly. Their staff had to re-program their system to try to get it to work for us. After some time, we were told that we needed to use their expensive cloud version instead of our local network. Also, when setting up AP, AR, PR and Jobs, we found restrictions in the system that our old software handled much better. Corrections were difficult and messed with workflow.

Recommendations to other buyers: We are a civil construction company that has been in business for 36 years and I should have known not to pay for something before I was sure it was going to work for us. Be sure to ask many questions and make sure it does exactly what you want and what they promise because changing accounting software is a huge undertaking.

They are a decent software company and user friendly

Pros: This is the industry standard for construction management. Most commonly used in most General contracting companies and in about 80% of all commercial companies.

Cons: not easy to navigate if it's your first time. After using and adapting to the short cuts it will become more familiar to navigate

Overall: The ability to make corrections in a familiar software platform used by most commercial construction companies

My basic job is Data Entry. I think there are too many steps to enter all the information required.

Pros: I can put my most used mods on the main screen so I don't have to go looking for them every time I need to use them.

Cons: I often have to seek out different reports to get all the information am looking for. I can't edit a document. certain mods don't remember my last settings.

Overall: The benefit is that we can now view invoices rather than have to go to the file cabinet and look for invoices.

Positive experience overall.

Pros: Job cost reporting, ease of use on certain portions of the program. Receivables portion is easy to use. Order portion of program is efficient and very easy to use.

Cons: No system that is service department based. A few parts of the program will not let you scroll thru job numbers with the roller wheel on your mouse.

Overall: Quick reporting of associated cost on projects.

Decent, but missing MANY QoL features. Can't delete/edit certain things, cant remove vendors, etc.

Comments: Pros: We were in the dark ages when it came to our Accounting and Project Management software and processes. So going from little to no organization to AccuBuild was an improvement, it is far from where it needs to be.

Cons: typical sales job of this will be great we will be great blah blah blah. they say a lot to get you to buy this expensive software and tell you how user friendly and easy it is, but as soon as you buy it they tell you you should buy 40+ hours of training a person at $150.00 an hour. We still uses it but only because of the cost we have invested in it to this point. Very difficult to deal with.

Difficult implementation but there's a lot of potential.

Pros: Basic accounting modules (AP, AR, Payroll, Job Costing) work fine.

Cons: Project management is clunky and inefficient. Scheduling is a waste of money.

Overall: I would not recommend this software to anyone. They charge premium prices but do not offer a premium product or customer service. You are better off getting another name-brand construction accounting software.
