Pros

Led by a phenomenaly brilliant leader and a very intelligent and knowledgeable team.
Great ERP for the price - outstanding features and customer support.
The easy integration was the best part about this product. I have been through many accounting integrations and this was by far the easiest.

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

There are no things that I don't like about the software, anything that I questioned or had a hard time with Premier support fixed or helped me with quickly.
Sluggish when dealing with large amounts of data.
It's very difficult to get it to integrate with our current estimating software. We're in the process of changing over, so I know it's only temporary.

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.

Works great

Reviewed a year ago

It helps with keeping a running log of all my change orders, manhours, RFIs, etc. Overall, it is easy to use.

Pros

For billing and writing RFIs, POs, and subcontracts, it's great!

Cons

It does not integrate with the existing construction software that we use for reporting time and billing.

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

Reviewed 6 years ago
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. Users are able to pull up all of the information they need for their job, including the address and contacts information. The app is user-friendly in the sense that it is not hard for our guys to learn how to use it.

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.

A solid tool for the construction industry

Reviewed 6 years ago

Within the construction space this is a solid tool with a good runway for growth and improvements.

Pros

The software has a very good suite of tools and is relatively easy to use. Nice clean UI compared to many other tools in this space.

Cons

I would love to see them move to an open API where integrating with other tools is possible. They do really well from a project management standpoint, but we would like to be able to connect to our ERP and CRM.

Intresting Product for Subcontractors

Reviewed 7 years ago

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. I personally think that the controls are fantastic but some people find them a waste of time and tedous.

Pros

Great controls, tracks emails effectively, strong field app.

Cons

Lacks flexibility.

Pros

I love the ease of use both from the office and field side. As a Construction Management professional with over 19+ years of experience, I can say that Esub is the best software I have used for Document Control and Retention. Also, the technical support has been awesome, you can actually speak to a live person that walks you step by step through the use of the software.

Cons

I truly have no complaints! In working in this industry as long as I have, this software has proven to be the best!

Customer Service is the best

Reviewed 2 years 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.

Close but not a winner

Reviewed 6 years ago

Got me in the market of using PM software.

Pros

Simple easy to learn. Focused on the sub contractor first. Has a toolbox of forms and letter templates that is nice for a small contractor.

Cons

It was supposed to be simple and slim for the Sub Contractor not the Prime General but it left out key features and trapped your data and information. PO module is very clunky. Training and implementation was not what I expected for the price you pay. Does not integrate well with accounting.

Pretty good!

Pros

Time management would be what I like most about this software program.

Cons

Finding jobs and workers. It would be nice to be able to have a search bar where you can type in jobs and worker names instead of drop down menus. You have to scroll through a lot to get what you are looking for.
