The AccuLynx Scholarship for Higher Education

AccuLynx was created by CEO Rich Spanton after he needed a more efficient and organized system to operate his roofing business. Spanton spent time researching and testing out different business management systems until he decided to build his own. AccuLynx was an internal application until 2008 when the opportunity was realized to sell the app as a product to competitors and other contractors in related trades. AccuLynx allows specialty trade contractors to save time, money and improve efficiency. It hold documents, photos, integrates with Quickbooks and tracks payments of jobs, materials and competitors.

As much as they have enjoyed serving their customers, AccuLynx has also committed to serving students. They believe students who passionately pursue their career goals will one day be able to delight the customers and clients they serve as well. That is why AccuLynx is proud to offer the “AccuLynx Scholarship Award” for students pursuing their career aspirations.
