eSUB Subcontractor Software


eSUB is a mobile application and cloud-based project management solution that helps commercial subcontractors across various trades to manage day-to-day operations. eSUB offers tools to connect field workers with office managers and assists them with initiating and managing project documentations. eSUB eliminates manual processes of tracking projects and automates labor tracking and communication.

eSUB creates paperless projects with one central storage for project information, photos, drawings, PDFs and any other documents that all team members access in real time. Logging in through a secure internet portal, eSUB’s project management module allows subcontractors to create, log, and track important documents like requests for information (RFIs), change orders, and more. eSUB’s timecard module tracks subcontractors’ labor hours and costs, which can be sent from the field to accounting software.

All information can be accessed at any time from any location on any mobile device. The solution is used by various contractors such as electrical, mechanical, specialty, HVAC and plumbing contractors.

    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!

    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

    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.

    Very easy to navigate. Keeps good track of all records. I have not used the software to its full potential. But when i do i am sure it will be a smooth transition. I love the reminders on past due responses on RFI and Transmittal's. Very user friendly and the program is not complicated. I will recommend this program to any construction organization .

    Cons

    Some bugs here and there but customer support is readily available and always has the answers that i need to finish my tasks

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Like I said before, it's very good at being a project management software. Seeing all that it has to offer is actually inspiring and educational about how our company needs to grow.

    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.

    Saved thousands of dollars on support and field production time.

    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.

    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.
