Accelo is one of the best out there

We have been able to professionally manage our projects and automated our billing. Integration with third party email clients such as gmail has made it easy to manage communication under the activity feature.

Pros

This software is feature rich but more specifically, this is a software that has helped us manage our entire sales cycle from managing contacts, Lead tracking, project planning and automated billing. But the most impressive is there is a client portal feature for our clients to collaborate on projects, accept quotes and view invoices.

Cons

I hate that one has to pay for customer support.

Alternatives Considered

HubSpot Marketing Hub, HubSpot Sales Hub and HubSpot CRM

Reasons for Switching to Accelo

The top reason is that it has a client portal feature.

An intuitive, multi-service management system

Superb system that's both feature-rich and simple to navigate. Accelo contributes to the smooth running of business processes. The various features and the low monthly cost make for an excellent value. Accelo is the easiest and most effective data analytics & service platform available. Capability for automation is a plus.

Pros

Accelo's unique scheduling feature and ease of collecting input from integrated platforms were also huge benefits. Accelo's time management features and the cost-effectiveness of Automation's products make it an ideal choice.

Cons

While Accelo's extensive features make it ideal for adaptation, managing numerous projects at once can be difficult. It's not simple to get data from different sources.

Response from Accelo

Accelo is packed with features and customizations, but still falls short

Pros

The UI is actually not so bad; it's bright and modern, and menu options are well-placed. (That is, most items are located exactly where you'd think they should be.) This is extremely helpful when building complex projects within the platform. Even novices are comfortable using Accelo after about a week, in most cases.

Cons

The sync with QuickBooks Online is awesome in theory, as my company requires that connection for invoices that are attached to projects within Accelo. However, that sync tends to break more often than it should. This is typically an issue when modifying ledger items and our chart of accounts in QuickBooks Online... Which, we HAVE to make the changes in QBO first, rather than the other way around. As a company with MANY products and services offerings that are updated around the beginning of every year, this is generally a nightmare.

Response from Accelo

Hi Keyana, thanks for your review, and sorry for the headache/frustration around keeping QBO and Accelo in sync.

When we set out to build the accounting integration we wanted to make sure that invoices created in Accelo would sync automatically into QBO (and Xero). The challenge with achieving this of course is that we have to fit in *exactly* with the API requirements and options/fields that are required fields in these powerful platforms. While we have admin features on our side to refresh/update things like items and ledger codes, we know that having to remember to keep the two products in sync from an admin perspective is a pain when it doesn't work.

The good news is that we're well over half way rebuilding our integration to support webhooks and automatic streaming/updating of changes from QBO (and Xero) into Accelo. This has the potential downside that a change made in your accounting system will confuse someone working in Accelo, but we think it is worth it to automate things

Solid CRM and project management tool

Scheduling, logging hours worked, billing customers, and maintaining rapport with suppliers may all be handled centrally. Abundant opportunities for combination.

Pros

The user experience on this system is superb. The fact that I can centralize the administration of all my various initiatives is another perk. All the data I want is now in one convenient location, which has greatly simplified my work. This means I can stop switching between operating systems merely to get work done.

Cons

Personalization is a major drawback of Accelo. The requirements of one business may not be applicable to another. Unfortunately, the platform does not allow for as much wiggle room when it comes to tailoring features to individual projects.

Response from Accelo

Hi Shayla, thank you for leaving a review! We are so glad to see all the ways you've used Accelo to centralize and simplify your work. We're sorry to hear you are having difficulty customizing the platform to meet your team's specific needs. We strongly encourage you to reach out to our Support team at [email protected] so we can learn more about the customizations you're looking for and provide solutions. Thank you again for your great feedback and for taking the time to share a review!
