    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.

    eSub delivers a quality product that is easy to use and meets all of our needs.

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    eSub provides a great cloud-based solution that meets all of our project management and project tracking needs. As a subcontractor, it was nice to finally find a software solution that is tailored to the needs of subs and our work flow. It is easy to use and it has been easily adopted by all of our users, both in the office and in the field. I find that it covers all of the processes of a subcontracting...

    Perfect PM platform for subcontractors!

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    We're extremely pleased with eSub. The timecard function is great, getting project information to our Superintendents and Foremen is immeasurable. I really like the submittal, Change Order, and RFI functions.

    Pros

    Too many Pros to list here. The submittal process is quick and easy, and very professional. Change orders are a snap. RFI's can be started by our field leaders on the eSub app, and finished by the PM in the office. All of these have a great tracking system through the log provided. All logs can be exported into Excel to be sent to GC's or CM's. We use the Sage 300 connector, and all project financials are current in our projects on eSub. There's a cost to complete function that is a great way to get an idea of how the project will finish. Nearly all this information is available to our field users through the app, which gives them all the project information.

    Cons

    Not really a Con, but it would be nice if the PO function would sync both ways through the Sage 300 connector. I believe that's a Timberline issue, though. Still, using eSub PO allows a real time look at committed costs against our project estimate.

    If this software had an accounting aspect all in one, it would be a whole other ballgame

    Reviewed a year ago

    In the end, this is not saving time since the GCs do not use this platform for submittals and daily reports and this is not an accounting software also.

    Pros

    Job summary page is a good tool if you are tied into accounting. I feel it is efficient in the field to add photos and track time lost. But again, daily reports are usually done through Procore because that is the GC platform and what they want used. It automatically adds the cover page to submittals which was nice.

    Cons

    Most GCs use Procore or plan grid so using the submittal aspect of Esub is pointless since they need to uploaded through another platform and tracked through that. Also since this is not an accounting platform any COs and POs needed to also be entered through accounting - duplicating the process - inefficient.

    Esub Review

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    Esub has ben a great addition for us. We are heavy users of the Submittals module, time tracking and Purchase Order modules. We are now making a more concerted effort to learn the intricacies of job costing and more detailed project management.

    Pros

    Esub has ben a great addition for us. it helps us to track all of our projects in one place ee electronically, as opposed to dozens of binders.

    Cons

    The software has been improved over the years. There were frustrations with the time management module and QuickBooks integration, but these have been improved now.
