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.

Wonderful - no more lost COR and troublesome RFIs

Pros

What we like tho most is that it standardizes the look and feel of our RFIs and CORs across the firm and we can now effortlessly track each. No more lost and unanswered RFIs and we can track our CORs.

Cons

We have yet to find anything that we cannot solve by chatting with tech support. There is a learning curve but it is rather flat compared to other software systems we have tried.

Our experience with Esub has been great.

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.

Awesome product!

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....

Lives up to what it is supposed to do.

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.

The Best Construction Software!

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!

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

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 user friendly

Pros

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

Close but not a winner

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.

A solid tool for the construction industry

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.

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.

It's been quite stellar to experience eSUB service

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.
