Pros

It has many great features that streamline communication with trades and help them to get paid on time. It’s a great way to organize multiple projects at a time.

JH

Joshua H.

Their customer service is unmatched in how responsive, friendly and helpful they are with questions or technical issues.

JS

Jeff S.

What I like most about BuilderTrend is it's ease of use, the customization ability of the software, and the ease of edit/revision.

DK

Dennis K.

Pros

Excellent experience from the demo through the purchase and implementation. Our account success manager and tech support have been very helpful.

KD

Kristian D.

If you are a subcontracting firm looking for project management/project tracking software, eSub provides a great solution and is a great value for the price.

Hogan H.

Excellent project overview. Excellent customer service, very responsive with follow through.

JD

Jennifer D.

Cons

Unable to autosave to-do's or the daily log is obnoxious. If you accidentally close out the program you lose all data.

CH

Chris H.

This isnt to blame on buildertrend its just we struggle to get our sub contractors to cooperate using our online services.

GM

Greg M.

Our trades hate it because it is hard to use on their phones.

JP

Judyth P.

Cons

The problem with this type of product was there were tons of functions that a subcontractor would never need or use. These products were also not efficient in exchanging files and information.

JM

Jesse M.

Getting a job set up is not quite smooth yet. I have a little trouble figuring out how to get my information switched over from the Edge.

CW

Cole W.

I have no recommendations for others. They just need to try it.
