Switched from 10year old construction commitment control software a year ago, and only wish we had done it sooner!

Pros

Ease of use for reviewers, made w project owners in mind- you don't have to look at some construction application and imagine how you might be able to apply t to your corporate building program. Mobile access , reviews, approvals a breeze and even easier than suing the website, for the traveling executive.

Cons

Could always be cheaper! Interface w Corporate accounting software (in our case, peoplesoft) takes some work.

E-builder is an expensive file organization software but has good PO tracking

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

There are tons of other project management software tools out there - I would not recommend this one.

Pros

PO tracking abilities are good and the overall user interface is fairly straightforward. E--builder is not quite ready for prime time - we have submitted ideas to them for incorporation so the users have to make the product better. Who has the money/time to give a company ideas so that we can get charged for licensing while they benefit?

Cons

So many to list. The pricing is horrible for all of the software's limitations. As my title suggests, it is basically a very expensive file organizer. The scheduling platform is awkward, importing files into the file structures is not straightforward, image editing that you want to do and share with your users is very limited and I find that edit images outside of E-builder first and then import them, you cannot record all of your correspondence created within the software (i.e. a full copy of what you sent out to another user), the side layout menu and the top tab organization is not intuitive and you can get completely of one project and into another without realizing it, etc. I would write more but I have to finish making pdfs of files that I need to import into E-builder because I cannot create them within E-builder.

I have been using this system for about three years on a variety of construction jobs from a program management perspective. The projects that I've managed in this system total over $20 Billion. I've created over 50 distinct processes and forms and managed over 400 users. From being able to manage your change management processes to include; RFIs, Change Orders, the ability to manage your meetings and meeting minutes, the ability to collaborate with the GC to manage the submittals all in one system really gives a PMO office piece of mind.

Pros

The flexibility to tailor processes based on the policies & procedures of your organization. Having the ability to manage meeting minutes, document control, design reviews, payments to the contractor, your entire change management including your overall project budget makes life so much simpler.

Cons

The Submittal module is not the greatest tool, but there are workarounds

Advice to Others

Vet your processes and roles out carefully before implementation

I have been using e-Builder for about 8 years now and have seen this product morph and improve, mostly because they listen to their client's needs and respond. They have experienced phenomenal growth over the past decade, but I still feel like their number one client when I call in with a question. I talk to a live person who genuinely cares about my issue, and if they cannot provide an immediate answer, I can be confident that I will get a response as soon as possible.
As an Administrator, it is my responsibility to train folks as we onboard them, and I find that most folks pick it up pretty quickly. The intuitive design is due, in large I believe, to the designer's attention to user feedback.

Pros

Intuitive, ability to create reports.

Cons

Some constraints in the out of the box version. Special programming may be required.

Advice to Others

Talk to other users in various positions at companies similar to yours. I think you will find a high degree of satisfaction with the program.

I think when the project is set up correctly within E-Builder, the software will definitely help in organization and workflow.

Because this is all web based, it sometimes can be slow to respond and process can get hung up if there are large files attached.

Recommendations

Make sure that the processes needed are thought through in the beginning so you don't have to deal with the challenges of changing a process in the middle of the project.

Pros

The drop down menu options in various places are very helpful. The choices are very clear on what to do what you need.

Attaching comments and attaching changes in documents is cumbersome. Having multiple options for saving documents makes it too easy to duplicate documents already on file in the e-Builder system.

It was like we all had an extra person that organized all of the project information.

eBuilder has allowed the City of Sunnyvale Public Works Engineering Division to get out of time consuming and inefficient paper workflows and jump into web based project management.
Being able to access project data online from anywhere and at any time gives our inspectors, project managers and executives immediate boost in making better assessments and decisions.
eBuilder costs more than some other off the shelf software packages to implement and adopt but its software is customizable. Through guidance and hard work during implementation and adoption, the City managed to mirror existing workflows, procedures and authorizations into eBuilder modules and processes. The offered Cost, Schedule, Reporting, Dashboards and other modules allows us to manage projects data, costs, schedules in a much more efficient way than we ever used to.
We spent valuable time in ensuring that project data includes the fields that we want to report on and create executive dashboards for. Currently we can generate reports in seconds and our executive dashboards update automatically. Ease of tweaking reports to meet specific needs cannot be underestimated in terms of time efficiency. This is so much easier than sorting, cutting, pasting and generating charts with an excel spreadsheet.
Currently we have all out projects in ebuilder. Use of eBuilder has made our lives so much easier especially in construction since our RFIs, RFQs, change orders preauthorization, changes orders, progress payments and submittals are all processed electronically via eBuilder customized processes. Use of digital signature and digital routing has saved us so much time in printing paper, manual signatures, scanning, emailing, filing, etc. After using eBuilder, project records that needed a whole filing cabinet drawer in the past shrunk to a mere 1¿ thick folder!
Our lead Admin has learned how to customize eBuilder so we are continuously improving our processes to make our jobs more efficient.
I must add that eBuilder 24-hour customer support service is the best free service we have received from anyone. The support service will take your call at any time and do their best to help you without any complaints. They have made needed adjustments after adoption so much easier without costing the City a dime.
In conclusion, the City of Sunnyvale is very pleased with eBuilder. The City Manager and Council are very pleased with the Engineering adoption of technology and use of eBuilder.

Our company has been using E-builder for a couple of years now and I love how it improves project accountability and document management. Each project manager can monitor their projects from anywhere with 24-7 accessibility. There is no need to have bulky paper files where documents can get 'lost' and must be re-created from scratch per se. We can always pinpoint what phase/stage our projects are in by use of the 'courts'. This software is highly recommended by the project managers who use it everyday at my company.

I am a contractor who uses e-builder through a client. The overall use is great but the ways to upload information can take some time. The billing portions require a lot of communication through the client to make sure the categories match up properly.

Upload speed is pretty good once you get the files setup and the download speed is also efficient.

Cons

Take too long to upload information for submittals. Too many steps.

I like to work with E-builder doing open submittals report, downloading submittals and
uploading. Sometimes I have issues uploading submittals when I'm attach a pdf a window gone without attaching the pdf. Maybe it is something to consider to review in the near future.

Great online software to have transparency for all the process on a project. access to all documents at anytime anywhere!

Pros

Web base access, all the information in one place, track process by responsible party

Cons

It could have a more graphic, intuitive interface

Advice to Others

Calendar and meeting minutes could be easier to print and organize

It's easy to navigate, and easy to search. Sometimes it's a bit slow because of the shear size of the files stored on it. But I can always count on accessing stuff on e-Builder no matter where I go
