Perfect PM platform for subcontractors!

We're extremely pleased with eSub. The timecard function is great, getting project information to our Superintendents and Foremen is immeasurable. I really like the submittal, Change Order, and RFI functions.

Pros

Too many Pros to list here. The submittal process is quick and easy, and very professional. Change orders are a snap. RFI's can be started by our field leaders on the eSub app, and finished by the PM in the office. All of these have a great tracking system through the log provided. All logs can be exported into Excel to be sent to GC's or CM's. We use the Sage 300 connector, and all project financials are current in our projects on eSub. There's a cost to complete function that is a great way to get an idea of how the project will finish. Nearly all this information is available to our field users through the app, which gives them all the project information.

Cons

Not really a Con, but it would be nice if the PO function would sync both ways through the Sage 300 connector. I believe that's a Timberline issue, though. Still, using eSub PO allows a real time look at committed costs against our project estimate.

Reasons for Choosing eSUB

ESub is definitely geared towards subcontractors. Procore had too many GC functions, and seemed cumbersome to use. ESub is easy, but fills all the needs we have as a large mechanical contractor.

Great Project Managing Tool

Pros

Ease of use, great support team. I also like that eSub is always adding features and updating it's look.

Cons

Same as all new software, it's going to take some time to work out the kinks and there is never a good time to make a change.

eSub Review

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.

Easy to navigate & well-organized

Pros

eSUB helps me to keep my tasks organized for each job. My favorite features are the ability to apply a contact to multiple jobs within the click of a button, as well as, "copy" from previous entries so that I can ensure each transmittal I send out is consistent and easy to follow.

Cons

It would be nice to customize shortcuts instead of having to switch in & out of screens, such as either offering a shortcut to access the (ex.) Submittal Log from the top menu or an option to add the page as a new tab.
