    Pros

    We use the E-Builder software for a particular client to enter time & expenses for project work. It is a fairly straight program that allows us to enter our time & expenses so that the client can verify the billings vs. time.

    Cons

    It does take a bit of time to get used to but its not too cumbersome or difficult to learn. No real cons.

    Ability to customize information, tracking RFI's and Submittals on the cloud with links available even to non-users.

    Cons

    Could be more streamlined and friendly to new users, the interface can be daunting to those unfamiliar with the app. Prefer the web version to the mobile version.

    Cons

    Although powerful it cost might be a bit of a challenge for smaller companies. The time it takes sometimes to Load and share larger files can be improved.

    Pros

    +Extremely customisable. This is construction management software that you can tailor to fit the needs of your project. I've used e-Builder for three (3) different higher education institutions and each University is able to tailor e-Builder to fit the project's needs.
    +Notifications. E-Builder will email you a notification when you have a RFI to respond to, when you have a submittal to review, when you've been copied on a RFI response, etc. This is very helpful and allows you to notify multiple individuals at once through the software. It also keeps a record.
    +Documentation. E-Builder is meant to store documentation and it does excel in this. I've used e-Builder to access submittals, RFIs, drawing revisions, etc. on long term projects (24-36 month construction) when sometimes the documentation was uploaded years back. E-Builder does not put a time limit on an upload, so you can always access it.

    Cons

    -Training is definitely required to use e-Builder. It can be confusing with different terminologies used such as "forms", "processes", etc. I just need to find submittals and RFIs but can easily get lost. Without training, it is easy to hate e-Builder, just like I did in the beginning.
    -Cost - this is not a cheap software and licenses can be costly.

    A great project management tool

    Pros

    Many uses across the project management field. Numerous projects with numerous users can access all the same stored information at the same time. Sending RFI, Submittals, transmittals, meetings, reports etc and then sending & placing the requisite information in the other users court - its fantastic.

    Cons

    Very limited in customization (which could be down to the way the project was set up) and tedious amount of clicking to get through to where you need to, and then having to start again when go on to next task rather than just going to next item (report, submittal, photo etc)

    Pros

    I like that is allows the user use it as-is out of the box and to customize it to suit their needs. I also enjoy the (nearly) everywhere availability and accessibility since it is web based and that you are always working with real time information. e-Builder has always had an improvement attitude, so they are always working to make the software better.

    Cons

    I would really like to see more hands on training options outside of the annual conference so that users can take better advantage of this excellent tool.

    Can track AR invoices without having to contact the clients' project team. Can access 24-7.

    Pros

    e-Builder keeps a complete historical record of all AR invoices and their status. I also like the Comments tab attached to each AR invoice. And the "Workflow in Your Court" (Actions Required).

    Cons

    I would like to see more customized report capability. Reports may be available and maybe I just wasn't trained on them.

    the documents drag and drooping feature. People that dont know how to process actions or orders, drop items here. I believe the system should not allow drag and drop files in the documents folder.

    Pros

    I like having all of the information for particular projects at my fingertips. I also like the notices I receive when items are in my court. The software also allows "ball in court" responsibilities to be tracked easily. I frequently use the report module as I over see several projects. I also like being able to access the software from my phone.

    Cons

    Depending on the time of day, the software response can be slow. This is probably a function of my internet connection.

    I creates an avenue for communication for the whole team which is valuable for the team. It creates a good historical record in construction administration.

    Pros

    I like that everyone has access to your project information and It keeps a history. I wish it had a newforma plug in to interface with our company's project information software.

    Cons

    Processes are cumbersome. I feel it needs more flexibility for folders and uploading cad files. I don't like that I have to change my password periodically.

    A superior and effective tool for managing all documents involved in my design and construction projects

    Pros

    Centralized aggregation of all project information. User-friendly and portability. Use in the office on your desktop, on all your smart devices-- all project-related information at the tip of your fingers at anytime and anywhere.

    Cons

    While the cost of adoption may be a potential hurdle initially for some small organizations, the benefits it brings to all stakeholders: design/construction/ institutional users will more than pay for itself in the long-term.

    Pros

    e-Builder is a great product for owners who manage large capital budgets with many projects. The cost module interfaces with out GL system so there is no duplicate entry into a capital software. This means increased financial controls but it's great to have all of the information in one place. The e-Builder development team is great at responding to client suggestions and they are continually upgrading the system to make it a powerful tool that is extremely user-friendly.

    Cons

    Granting permissions in the folders is cumbersome if management likes continual change. We have a director who is constantly wanting changes and permission changes are not the easiest to make when you have a large folder structure built with subfolders like in Windows. It would be nice to be able to grant separate permissions for specific tasks but the permissions are set for groups of items. It makes sense but also limits the permissions the system administrator can grant to others.
