eSUB Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about eSUB's features:

Jose P.

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.

Recommendations to others considering eSUB

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 creation and tracking of submittals, RFIs, and change orders has been a game changer in how organized we are from the start of projects to the close out.

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.

2018-02-02

Pros

The eSUB team has also done an excellent job of continually working to streamline the product and to fit the users needs.

We have had nothing short of a great experience since we began using eSUB.

2017-11-30

Pros

I like that it keeps everything in a chronological order. Our field users are able to log their progress and keep me in the loop of things that are happening on the job-sites.

Cons

There hasn't been anything yet that we have found to not work well for what all we were looking for in a new construction management software.

Great Software

2019-08-01

The time and money that we have saved on the change orders has paid for the product 10 folder.

Pros

The tools that you have for tracking are the strangest that I have seen.

Cons

The ability to have custom content is a down side. If you do need anything custom it take time and money to get it in place.

Esub as a whole product

2019-05-16

The issues i had for years were all project management from the field and job costing. This software rectified this so we have immediate feed back and information from the projects (As long as your supervisors do their job) Also the RFI Correspondence, Change orders and so forth come from our office in a complete and professional manner.

Pros

The software was easy for my filed to understand and start using with little or no training.

Cons

At first it was some of the add on modules. But i talked to my rep at Esub and she was on it in a heart beat and solved my issues immediately.

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. It's very well-done.

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.

Perfect PM platform for subcontractors!

2019-08-02

I really like the submittal, Change Order, and RFI functions.

Pros

All logs can be exported into Excel to be sent to GC's or CM's.

Cons

Still, using eSub PO allows a real time look at committed costs against our project estimate.

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.

A must for a finish trade!

2016-09-09

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 .
