Jose Palacios

Many features, Very Organized

2017-02-04

The program helped remind me if I hadn't submitted a change order and also notified me once the owner received and signed the change order.

Pros

From the 1st question to the final change order.

Cons

It's a bit pricey but well worth the money if used for a medium to large company.

When purchasing make sure to know how many employees you will have using the program. I believe there is a "per user" cost.

Helped get our project management team more organized and start projects better prepared.

2017-06-28

Tracking and organization of different documents required for each project.

Pros

The recent API integration with Plangrid has made RFI creation easier and more professional looking.

Cons

Branding consistency. The forms and letters it outputs are branded with our logo but it would be great to be able to input a signature into the emails that it sends out from the system.

Overall excellent customer service.

2018-02-02

Pros

Daily jobsite reporting and time tracking, as well as the simplicity of their field notes make this software an excellent link between what's going on in the field and management in the office.

Cons

The biggest con with the software is in their file management for uploaded job information such as drawings.

Great customer support and lots of help to organize and streamline our company

2018-07-30

I can track job costing and estimates and be able to see the job from conception to completion without skipping a beat.

Pros

I can see everything with my phone and anything I need is just a few keys away! Job costing, employee info and tracking is fantastic!

Cons

Teaching new employees how to use esub can sometimes be difficult. Also- it would be good to know everything that esub is capable of. I see that Esub now has an Esub academy and I feel like that would be very helpful.

2015-07-09

Pros

The change order portion is nice also.

Cons

The way to add people to project. You can be into making a RFI or submittal and then you realize a person is not in the distribution list and you have to back out and go somewhere to add them.

I would say communicate with their support, check how responsive and helpful they are, request for a demo, schedule a online training, ask as many question as you have and see how effective their feedback is then select their software and start using it with your team and ask for developing the interface based on your requirement. I believe your will find eSUB team efficient and productive to your company.

I would say that it is important to use the software for a couple of different jobs so that you can see what all areas work well with your type of work and which areas could use some improvement. Sometimes you do not ever think of a feature until the time comes that you have to do something and then wish that there was an easier way of doing it.

Fair experience

2015-07-09

Pros

The ability to export to Microsoft excel.

Cons

On every update some changes that makes it a little more tedious, for example the cost code drop menu got smaller in the purchase order form and time entry form. the P/O log needs to show the description of the item for easy view and search.

FL Crane & Sons, Inc.

2015-02-27

Pros

Allows tracking of project elements that are normally cumbersome to track during the course of a project.

Cons

It is difficult to use because each project requires setup time, and a lot of the information that remains the same across jobs isn't carried over.

It's been quite stellar to experience eSUB service

2018-02-09

Like I said before, it's very good at being a project management software.

Pros

It has a very high degree of industry specific functionality and high quality customer support.

Cons

It could be prettier to look at. There's a lot of visually attractive media out there, so eSUB is kind of boring in comparison.

A must for a finish trade!

Pros

The cloud-based use of purchase orders project management correspondence etc. has mainstreamed our business or we will never be looking for products or events again .

Cons

The quality on the field note photographs are sometimes skewed or stretched, we like to use them for social media so if this could ever be fixed that would be helpful .

Intresting Product for Subcontractors

2017-02-28

eSUB is an interesting product for sub-contractors. It overall works very well but it has lots of controls that many sub-contractors who have not used construction management software may not like.

Pros

Great controls, tracks emails effectively, strong field app.

Cons

Lacks flexibility.
