Looking for construction scheduling software that connects with Acumatica

We are in need of a scheduling software that we can integrate with Acumatica.  For some background, we are production builders so will be working off of pre-determined schedules for a full-home build.  We need to be able to show the variance of projected versus actual schedule, and ideally be able to alert our trades through this scheduling piece, and approve POs and EPOs from the field.  Any suggestions are welcomed!

 

Thank you!

We’re actively working on a couple of different integrations with Smartsheet, one that exists but needs some additional work, and another that will be brand new. From a homebuilder standpoint that would likely be the best option at this point in time. You can take a look at some of the functionality of the existing connector by checking out this video:

The limiting factor is the typical level of granularity needed for homebuilders. In my experience, you’re tracking specific tasks to the day, including for instance, multiple individual days for framing, drywall, etc. that would need to be “clicked-off” on a day-by-day basis. Smartsheet would allow for creation of subtasks and templates that could get you to that level of detail. 

I’ll be following this thread to see what others in the community have come up with and also message you directly regarding some other potential future options.

Have you looked into Assignar? They handle scheduling for both crews and equipment (if needed) and already have some level of integration.

Primavera P6 is utilized by many contractors.  You can find additional details on both Acumatica and Primavera P6 here:  https://primaveraconsultants.com/
