AccuLynx Releases New Features to Help Contractors Manage Projects Remotely

AccuLynx, the business management software platform for roofing contractors, announced the launch of new features — including automated emails, texting, payment processing, and homeowner financing — which give roofing contractors the ability to collaborate effectively and service more homeowners while working remotely.

AccuLynx software is designed to help roofing contractors manage every aspect of their job from a single, cloud-based application. It combines customer relationship management and project management functionality with tools to support the roofing sales and production process, including estimating, photo-sharing, aerial measurements, material ordering, and labor scheduling.

New features recently added to the system let contractors trigger automated notifications via email and text message. This makes it easier to keep other team members, insurance adjusters and customers informed throughout a project and reduces the need for in-person site visits. The company also introduced payment processing and an integrated point-of-sale financing option.

AccuPay is a secure way for contractors to process credit card and ACH transactions online or over the phone. It eliminates the need for contractors to collect paper checks in person and allows companies to access payment funds faster.

Integrated financing provided by GreenSky helps contractors overcome cost-related barriers in the sales process by offering a loan through AccuLynx. The quick application process, which provides immediate notification of credit decisions, can be completed online or over the phone so contractors can move contracts forward without having to meet with homeowners to complete loan paperwork.

“Many roofing contractors are adjusting to COVID-19 by having office staff work remotely and keeping in-person visits to a minimum,” said Mike Stein, Chief Executive Officer of AccuLynx. “AccuLynx allows project teams to collaborate in realtime and service customers without making unnecessary trips into the office or meeting with homeowners in person.”

    Acculynx Moves into a Redeveloped Office Space in Beloit, Wis.

    Growing fast and strong, specialty trade business management software leader Acculynx has moved into a 21,000-square-foot newly redeveloped office space in Beloit, Wis., as it tries to keep pace with the company’s expanding customer base.

    “The good part of success is that you outgrow your office,” says Richard Spanton Jr., president and CEO of AccuLynx. “We’re so excited about what this new space will mean for us in terms of future expansion and in continuing to acquire the best developers in the country.”

    AccuLynx, in conjunction with Beloit-based Hendricks Commercial Properties, chose the Ironworks redevelopment site, transforming a previous manufacturing location into a fun, funky tech space designed, in part, to draw first-rate IT talent.

    “The best developers mean the best software. The goal has always been to bring the very best product to the marketplace … to save time, money and headaches for specialty trade contractors. This new space gives us the room and resources to continue to do that as we grow,” says Spanton.

    AccuLynx cloud-based business management software gives specialty trade contractors a faster and better way to run their small businesses, from lead development to customer relationship management, project management to production scheduling, financial tracking to business analysis.

    A formal ribbon-cutting event will be held in May once all finishing touches on the space are complete. Spanton has a personal tie to the building itself, too. He says: “AccuLynx chose Beloit and the Ironworks location in particular because the vibe is the perfect fit for our fun, funky culture. I am also extremely proud that our new office is in one of the buildings my grandfather worked in for 40 years at the old Beloit Corp. It’s so exciting to be putting a new heartbeat in this unique historical building. I like to think the new voices and footsteps we bring will honor those of the men and women, like my grandfather, who worked here before us.”

    The new space features the original exposed heavy steel structure, a masonry exterior with modern amenities, including high efficiency LED lights and HVAC. The space is designed to optimize natural light in an open, fun, and attractive floor plan that includes a full kitchen, outdoor patio, shower facilities, game rooms, and a slide for employees to take from the 2nd floor.

    AccuLynx will relocate 30 employees from its current headquarters in Rockton, Ill. The new space can accommodate an additional 70 people to keep pace with anticipated growth over the next three years. AccuLynx received aid from the WEDC as an incentive to move to Wisconsin. Working in conjuction with Hendriks Commercial Properties, the space was designed by Excel Engineering (city) and built by Corporate Contractors Inc. (city)

    “We are extremely pleased that AccuLynx selected Ironworks for their new headquarters. They are a progressive company with a proven track record of success and a limitless future. AccuLynx will bolster the IT cluster that is forming in Beloit and will bring much needed living wage jobs to this community. The new AccuLynx office space is just the next step in HCP’s plan to totally redevelop and transform the former Beloit Corp complex that was once an obsolete, blighted building into a state of the art facility that is the home to vibrant and growing manufacturing, engineering and IT companies,” notes Mark Membrino Vice President, Hendricks Commercial Properties.

    Hendricks Commercial Properties currently manages and owns over 15 million square feet of real estate properties in 39 states. Property types include industrial, office, retail, multifamily and development land. From vision to reality, Hendricks Commercial Properties applies integrity, experience and teamwork to create value in real estate development and management.
