Archdesk

A business management platform for construction companies

About Archdesk

Archdesk is a business management platform that’s adapted to your specific needs. It mirrors your company’s structure and optimises every workflow, giving you full visibility and control of your business.

From specialist to enterprise contractors, get a complete overview of every project in one place. Seeing your data in real-time lets you identify possible problems and make better decisions, empowering you to always finish projects on time and within the budget.

Archdesk gives you access to project management features like scheduling, RFIs and document management. Financial features like budgeting, procurement and invoicing. And operations features like reporting, supplier management and subcontractor management.

Because Archdesk is modular, each feature can be used independently of each other - or together as one multi-functional ERP. You choose how you want it.

You can also access HR, timesheets, forms, asset management and many more features that will help you run a successful business.

An open API calms any integration nerves. For example, Archdesk integrates with any accounting system, like Xero and Quickbooks, saving your team from repetitive, mundane data entry - and the mistakes these cause.

    The key to our growth

    There is no doubt in my mind that we wouldn't have grown as far as we have without Archdesk. Knowing my company has a solid structure and system in place, I have every confidence that our growth will continue and will be manageable.

    Pros

    We looked at so many products that would fit our business and kept hitting dead ends. Then we found Archdesk and one of the key things for me was it's easy to use interface. I had confidence straight away in training current and future staff to use it with it's current and 'app' like approach. It's fully customisable and the support staff are very quick to respond to our queries. This is essential for a young business like ours that needs help putting systems in place to help us go to the next level. Every body within the company uses it now and the processes make it so easy for everyone to see what the next step is for each project. From enquiry to estimating and all the way through to project cost analysis.

    Cons

    It's hard to say anything negative really. Occasionally there is a minor glitch in the system presumably because they are making constant improvements. These are always dealt with quickly.

    I find Archdesk very user friendly and is suitable even for the people who have limited tech knowledge. I find that it is suited for every role within a construction company from estimating to accounts to general admin and even the engineers.

    Pros

    I like that everything for each project is in one place. All members are able to view all of the critical information for their role, we dont have to do any double entry or input into multiple CRM systems / folders.

    Cons

    There isnt much to say here the only thing I can think of is that you can only put one overall price in for a job and in construction, there can be many possibilities for costs, so to be able to put a few lines under contract price would be great.

    Response from Archdesk

    We're thrilled to hear that you're enjoying Archdesk! We designed our software with the entire team in mind, and it's great to see that you're finding it to be user-friendly and suitable for every role within your construction company.

    It has been ok, the sales team sold it, the support is average, and the actual functionality of it is average. I think there would be better solutions which we would be exploring if not in contract with Archdesk.

    Pros

    I like that is it fairly user friendly, and that it hold the data for projects in one place and allows everyone to update.

    Cons

    I feel like it falls flat on a lot of features, we were promised integration with Sage when sold this software, but this never fully happened. It can be a bit long winded to update, and it creates a lot of double entry for us. I feel like it was sold as a great solution however it feels quite mediocre.

    From the very start it has been a great experience, support is first class. We found the different levels of elements in the software covers a lot of what we want, there is a few things that could help if changed but they seem very keen to develop with you.

    Pros

    Scheduling and budgeting is a huge part of what we like about the software.

    Cons

    The link up with Sage is the weak point of the software, it has improved but could still do with more work. Would be good if we could make are invoices abit more bespoke as well.
