Pros: The simplicity of Esub is one of the best aspects, the repetitive nature of the system allows anyone to pick it up easily. The tracking and logging of submittals, RFIs, change orders is great. In using other project management systems, they tend to over complicate the interface where as Esub is straight forward and easy to use. Within the system the ability to attach files and use the emailing "@esubdocs" allows all aspects of the project to be documented within the system so that everything you need is all one place. Recently we have started to build our database for cha nge orders and manpower which has allowed us to use the system for logging and tracking of outstanding, approved and voided CORs which allows us to keep track of everything, which is especially helpful on larger projects where we have up to 50 CORs.

Cons: One aspect we would like to change is the fact that we cannot erase if there is an error made in the submission, we understand the reason, however it would be a nice option if the admin of the system could erase. Another component that we do not use is the drawings logging section, it is too cluttered, we keep track of the drawings through the submissions, which works great for us.

Recommendations to other buyers: One thing to look at is the size of the company and the volume. If the size is too large, you can easily find that the system becomes too cluttered, especially on frequently used logs and modules. If they aren't kept up to date you can lose track of everything, rendering the logs available useless. If you are going to get the system, you need to buy into it and keep everything up to date to keep the logs current so you can know exactly where you are at with your projects.

Worth every penny, wish we started using eSub sooner

Pros: We came to eSub after a horrid experience with another vendor that claimed they would "simplify" my life and save us countless hours and money. After 12 months with thousands and thousands of dollars spent on support and wasting way too many hours to admit without profound embarrassment, I made the choice to abandon the failing attempt and give eSub a try.

I tested eSub for a few months before making a complete shift to their platform and the only regret is I did not do it sooner. The conversion was smooth, the training was on point and the relationship is that of a partner not a parasite looking to milk us dry with a poorly engineered and supported product. We have saved thousands of dollars, countless productive field hours and I don't spend my entire day managing our management software. Feel free to look us up with any questions.

Cons: If forced to submit a "con", the only thing that we have requested, from time to time, is a custom form or a modification to the way items are displayed. BUT... this is because we are trying to preserve OUR method. The eSub method is not flawed, we are making the request. The support team is still extremely responsive and I really don't see this as a con.

Overall: Saved thousands of dollars on support and field production time.

ESub has been a game changer for us!

Comments: Pros:

-easy to use

- streamlines project management by reducing hefty admin time spent creating documents such as: purchase orders, rfi's, sub agreements, change orders, quick memos , etc

-allows for more timely contract responsiveness to our customers

-makes creating submittals a breeze

- produces excellent daily reports for manpower by cost code that are easy to download

- excellent cost tracking by cost code and issues

-excellent project overview

-excellent customer service, very responsive with follow through

-easy to train new users

Cons:

-contact management can be a little burdensome with all the clicking required. You learn quickly to setup the project correctly from the beginning with all pertinent contacts. The contact will already be added in the main contact log but not assigned to that specific project unless that project is 'clicked' for that contact. This resulted in a few new ESub users thinking those contacts weren't in the main contact log yet and they added them, creating duplicates. You do get the hang of this and your preparation will be self-appreciatied down the line.

-this one is a pro and a con depending on how you use this software: you really can't fully delete anything. For example: If you enter the wrong date on a daily report (auto dates for current date) you cannot go back to change later so better get it right the first time. This could be simplified by requiring an entry instead of auto fill maybe? You also cannot delete that report and start new. We add notes to the internal notes "work date was actually xx/xx" so that it will show up on a multiple daily report.

-the outgoing emails from the website for some reason often get filtered by spam filters and end up sitting in the recipients junk folders. This is quickly resolved by a follow up to the vendor or customer via phone or email to confirm which is common practice. Also, this is probably typical of any web based software outbound emails.

All and all I use it just about every day and I would highly recommend it. Once you are trained and used to the system; it's fantastic. Definitely allows our company to operate much more efficiently than before we had ESub!!

Overall excellent customer service.

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. The automatic tracking of RFIs and submittals also helps avoid things falling through the cracks. The eSUB team has also done an excellent job of continually working to streamline the product and to fit the users needs.

Cons: The biggest con with the software is in their file management for uploaded job information such as drawings. If you have a typical project layout for how you want to file things, you'll be fine, but if your project becomes unusually complex it may require some extra effort to make sure everything stays clear.

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

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. It allows all our project management team to see what has been done to date on a project from anywhere without having to carry a large project notebook with them. 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: Tracking and organization of different documents required for each project.

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

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.

Overall: The benefits are amazing! We can see reports and real time accomplishments from the jobsite to the office. Communication is at an all time high. I can track job costing and estimates and be able to see the job from conception to completion without skipping a beat. This software program has helped us become more organized and cost efficient. I would recommend this to everyone! Thank you!

Pros: The ability to track all your submittals and purchase orders on one place.

The ability to track costs based on PO'S, and change orders versus the contract budget and amount.

It's great to be able to send e-mails through eSUB.

Cons: The Sales Tax Feature, most of our vendors don't provide the tax %. I'd recommend that there be another box for just the amount and the purchase order spits out the %.

Transmittals I wish you would be able to provide the signature line for that form as well, as its available for submittals.

When uploading files to the submittals, purchase orders, etc. if there's a lot attachments it would be more better if we are able to arrangement which attachments appear first. Instead you have to load one by one and remember which attachment you want to include in the order you want it to appear.

Overall: Tracking everything that's being submitted to the GC / customer / vendors for all projects.

Pros: A couple great things about eSub is that it is tailored to subcontractors and the way we do business and it handles our needs really well. Many software packages try to be all things to all people. Conversely, eSub has chosen their target market - subcontractors - and has delivered a product that serves this market well. The program is-well thought-out, intuitive and easy to use. As a result, we have seen a marked increase in the tracking and logging of our projects by our project managers and superintendents. That's a big, big plus.

Cons: I cannot say anything negative about the vendor. eSub had delivered all that they promised, and I would rate their tech support group as top-notch; better than most by far. So far, I've made only two enhancement recommendations: a) a more seamless way to handle pay apps and b) the ability to copy submittals from one project to another. The pay application and submittal modules work well, but could be better with these two suggestions.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are a subcontractor in need of document control and project tracking, give this software a serious look. Ask all the tough questions. I believe you'll find that you'll get honest answers. And, if you decide to purchase this product, I believe eSub will stand behind what they promised, just as they have for RSI. Again, if you are a subcontractor, compare this product with other vendors in the project management/document control market space. I think you'll find that eSub is truly the only provider that is tailored to subcontracting. That was the primary reason we selected eSub.

eSub is very easy to use and has just about everything that you could want in a software product

Comments: The customer service/ support is amazing. Overall everything you might want in a system is already there. The few things needed to customize it for your company can usually get done. Our foremen, who may not have much computer experience out in the field, have easily gotten accustomed to it as well.

Pros: The ease of use- even for computer illiterate people. There is not much more that you could ask for especially for subcontractors. Most of the software out there is for general contractors.

Cons: We do some things differently and have had to wait a little while to get a few things changed to our way of doing them.

Lives up to what it is supposed to do.

Comments: Gaining better control with our projects has saved time and money and our customers like the fact we are on top of the project at all times. Being pro-active rather than re-active is largly due to using eSub and the daily reports turned in by the field employees. Very user friendly for all employees.

Pros: Good support from everyone we dealt with at eSub Better control of Projects from start to finish. Easy for field employees to enter required information

Cons: No real problems. The eSub program has even more features than we havebeen using. We wish we could have had this system earlier.

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!

Pros: The way it's tailored towards sub-contractors is a plus. A lot of other software solutions are geared towards GC's. The ability to share information is great, office and field are both synced. Makes you adapt one method of creating and maintaining documents is a plus.

Cons: Their tech support is helpful but the resolutions is always "we'll let our developer look at it and we'll get back to you" which in my experience can take several weeks. There is no ticketing system for the items I've submitted that are issues. It's up to me to remind them that i have outstanding issues and to get the status on them. In the amount of time we have been using the software, we've experienced more than the expected amount of issues. We've experience two times where the system was "down" which is pretty much unacceptable if this software solution is the to be the lifeline of your document system. We were told that the software is customize-able and while that is true in some aspects, it's not completely true. I've inquired about customization and I'm having a hard time getting it rolling.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would run and complete a project before implementing it company wide.

We are running a more efficient business since implementing eSUB in our day to day operations.

Pros: One of the most convenient aspects of eSUB is having everything in one place. Before eSUB we were tracking jobs by saved folders on a shared drive. With eSUB everything is one place. Everyone from project management to accounting is much happier since our implementation. We are more profitable and able to serve our clients better with eSUB.

Cons: Nothing.

Cons: Nothing to say, they are very cooperative they will work with you.

Recommendations to other buyers: 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.

Comments: As a hole I believe that this software will better our company. The amount of man hours that this software has been saving us the more and more that we use it is incredible. I feel that by stepping out and gaining a tool like esub we are not only becoming more efficient as a company but also becoming more competitive in our field.

Pros: The product is great and Esub's customer service is off the charts. When we needed help with an issue we had great support staff to give us a hand. The customer representative with Esub is hands down one of the best contacts to have at Esub.

Cons: My only con is at the beginning of Esub. Making sure that they understand your business so they are more understanding of the types of information that you need to for the implementation process and what information will not be necessary. Understanding of the cost codes and PO information etc.

Comments: 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.

Pros: The webinar training has been informative without doing "information overload." The training was well-thought-out and segmented in a logical way. My initial knee jerk reaction is very positive. It seems to be well-thought-out as a product with all of the tools we need as PMs without being cluttered with a lot of useless tools simply for the sake of appearing more advanced. I'm very impressed so far.

Cons: I do not really have an opinion on the vendor, pros or cons. Beyond the webinar training, I have not had any interaction with them. As for the eSub product itself, I really have not had the opportunity to work extensively in the software. The only things that I personally have run into is the inability to do submittals inside the software as opposed to importing them. This is not a big deal and ultimately may be the best way to deal with it. Another item that was encountered yesterday was in the change order feature. A lot of entities have there own forms to be used for breakdowns of change request. There will need to be a way to import that into the change order file.

Recommendations to other buyers: I don't really have any. Most of my experience has been using Excel spreadsheets for PO's and change order logs. This allows us to have a standardized way of doing things company wide.

Pros: I enjoy the standardized forms and all of the tables for tracking dates and cost. The tables are easy to read and make it easy to keep up with everything in a very organized manner.

Cons: The thing I like least is that there aren't any good ways to customize databases to each project manager/estimator. In a company as large as FL Crane, we have several different offices and even more PM/estimators, and having to filter through everyone's contacts and vendors during the job setup process can be cumbersome.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look at things such as accessibility and make sure you are getting something that you can actually use in your day to day operations. I was part of the team for my company that looked into several different products like eSUB. We found a few products out there that are not web-based, which makes them difficult to access because you usually have to be at a desktop on a secure network. Products such as these also seemed dated and difficult to use. The other type of product we ran into was a web-based product that was geared only to general contractors. 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. They were set up to store files for download or to allow information to be viewed but not shared.

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

Comments: 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 workflow simply, but it is not simplistic. It is a sophisticated piece of software that has increased our internal efficiency and our external "appearance" to our clients.

The only small complaint I've had so far with this software is the inability to share some common project submittal information between old and new projects, but this would be a great extra, not a deal killer at all. We have been very happy with eSub's continued enhancements and their technical support staff is very helpful and very easy to get a hold of. I'd rate their support team among the best that I've encountered over the years.

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. I'd highly recommend it.

Pros: Using eSUB has streamlined several of our daily tasks and cut down the timeframe to do those.

Cons: Little things - some bugs in custom documents we have had made. Also some of the documents we would use regularly are not that easily edited and saved without some sort of "copy and paste". The drawings and submittals portions seem somewhat complicated - seems like that could be simplified. We have had some trouble with getting emails named correctly so they go straight to the specific project correspondence inboxes instead of the unresolved emails. If there were more editing options with emails that would be nice. We are still trying to find the best way to have emails organized.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use it early and often. Get into it right away and develop some in-house practices for what and how things get organized within eSUB.

Very informative

Pros: Easy to keep up our field supervisors material purchases, great for doing COR's. Perfect for sending request to customer and easy for them to respond

Cons: Can be confusing on the contract and budget and how they are calculated when PO's are done. Pay applications should more simple, overall can be time consuming at times.

Overall: Learning how to closely follow a job.

We love eSub! It organized every aspect of our contracting business.

Pros: The biggest pro to the eSUB software is their interlinked system between daily reports, time cards, and project labor tracking. It is simple enough for the new computer/iPad users in the industry to pick up quickly and realize the wealth of information that can be used from the program.

Cons: There are some issues with the flow of the dashboard/ interface, but over all it is ok. Rather than pages for lists/ logs, I think a "scrollable" page would be faster and more streamlined.

Recommendations to other buyers: It will save you time and money in the long run with integrating multiple tasks into one function.

This product is so AWESOME!

Comments: If you are struggling with timesheets, project tracking, daily reports, this is a great product for you!

Pros: We reduced the amount of time spent on our commercial painting company projects by taking away the need to work in Excel, QuickBooks, Word, Outlook and a good old fashioned dry erase board.

Cons: You have to be willing to invest in the product but it is truly worth it when you compare hours spent chasing down timesheets in the field or GPS based to the sec clocked in timesheets, manhours calculating the time and adjusting, entering into QB and printing checks....

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

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.

Extremely beneficial tool. The staff is incredible.

Pros: The software overall is simple to use, not bulky or cumbersome which made it easy to implement into our daily operations, also the Mobile app is amazingly simple and easy which actually encourages our foremen and project managers to use it onsite.

Cons: Overall I cannot think of anything that I can say that I dislike. some of the back end settings can be a little tricky to find but support is always quick to help with that.

Overall: Clarity and overall organization. Open communication between the field and office.

Pros: There are a lot of possibilities. I see the full benefit of the product; however, we are only using it limitedly. There needs to be a startup / training wheels version to ease users into the software. It could be a simple, scaled-down version. With the amount of work I do, only large projects will be worth taking the time to put into the software.

Cons: The menu keys are confusing to me. The tutorials are good, but my company has only assigned the PM/Estimators with using the software. It would be nice if the options we aren't using weren't there. If our foremen aren't using the product, we don't need to see the daily report stuff. It would be neat if the unused icons could be hidden and then incorporated. It is somewhat like a buffet; I don't know which icons are useful, but there is a lot of stuff to choose from.

Recommendations to other buyers: This seems to be a good product, but the transition takes time. You need to go all in so all of the benefits can be reaped.

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.

Overall: Got me in the market of using PM software.

It has been a great opportunity to work with this company.
