    Pros
    Excellent experience from the demo through the purchase and implementation. Our account success manager and tech support have been very helpful.
    Excellent project overview. Excellent customer service, very responsive with follow through.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    I have no recommendations for others. They just need to try it.

    Customer Service is the best

    Reviewed a year ago

    Excellent- Love the tracking, ease of copying prior info to start new docs and ease of following timeline for RFIS and Submittals.

    Pros

    I use this for our construction documents for our field crew. RFI's and Submittals are easily processed by all of the team and tracking is easy and efficient. Better than the software is the support behind it. Our Project Manager,[SENSITIVE CONTENT] , goes above and beyond to let us know upcoming features, where to get answers and how to teach users to be effective with its information.

    Cons

    Understanding where users are pulled from for the submittal/RFI process from the project information. Specifically the Engineer, Estimator, Project Superintendent- What category do I add these people to ... Users or Contracts?

    Vendor response

    Hi Sue- Thank you for the great review and feedback. We're proud of the quality of service and support we offer clients like you. We know how important it is that folks use and understand the tools eSUB provides. That's why our Client Success Team works so hard to help make sure you get the most out of the software. Looks like you have some questions around user vs contact. To help clarify: a user is anyone who logs in to an eSUB account (usually an employee). A contact is anyone who receives documents or correspondence from eSUB (like a superintendent, engineer, or vendor). Your Client Success Manager can help clarify and assist if you still have any questions.

    keeps improving

    Reviewed a year ago

    From when I personally started using eSUB, back in 2015, I have never felt uneasy about the software. I have always had the confidence in using the software because of the very first and initial meeting, deployment, and support I have received from the eSUB support team and those special people who have managed our account! When you take the time to show a customer/user how your product can impact their productivity and success in a positive way, you've gained more than their business, you've gained loyalty!

    Pros

    Our 7 year partnership with eSUB has been an inspiring one! Over the years we have seen improvements in the software and when we have questions, concerns, or need further instruction for use of eSUB, we are able to get a response and dedicated support!

    Cons

    The software currently is not fully customizable, but we have been assured that this is all changing once eSUB 2.0 is fully released and available for us to deploy all phases.

    eSUB Review

    Reviewed a year ago

    The system works a lot better than it did a year ago. It used to take forever to open Timecard Management or wouldn't open at all and I was having to manually enter payroll, but now I don't have that problem.

    Pros

    The export feature so time doesn't have to be manually entered in our Payroll system

    Cons

    I have to open each and every single job each week to save the Daily Reports and to know what jobs need to be included to export and it takes quite a bit of time. It would be nice if you could just populate daily reports created that week.

    Good Software

    Reviewed a year ago
    Pros

    I typically use E-sub to generate submittals, purchase orders and change orders. It's super effective for this, as i can attach documents to the submittal as well and it helps keep me organized and have all of my submittals in one place.

    Cons

    Sometimes the software can be glitchy and will not allow me to add certain files/takes a long time to load.

    eSUB for Construction Document Management

    Reviewed a year ago

    Very positive. The support team is excellent. I have only had a few issues, but they have been addressed swiftly every time.

    Pros

    Having a searchable repository that I do not need to maintain is a tremendous resource. The time savings of all the employees that do not need to dig through file trees to find documents is a significant savings.

    Cons

    When I attach a PDF to a Submittal, all of my bookmarks are deleted and many of my bookmarks get garbled. I then need to send a separate Box link to my customer in order for them to view the file as it was uploaded. This deletes the chain of custody for the document. Maybe there is an opportunity for a enhancement here.
