B2W Software
We are long-term users of the B2W system. We believe it is the best choice for paving contractors. It is easy to learn and continues to offer even deeper ability as estimating prowess grows. The system allows us to update quotes that were given in the past and to stay on top of our costs as changes occur, so our data is up to date and accurate. Know your costs and you can make money!

eSUB Construction Software
If you are doing any sort of new construction, eSUB is a budget friendly option for managing the process. It's helpful for keeping track of submittals, RFI's and for foreman doing Daily Work Reports. It is not suited really well for plan management and scheduling. The modules for these are not well thought through. Also if you specialize in service work or projects that have short durations (i.e. 1-2 weeks or less), eSUB isn't the best option for you. It would take too long to set up a job vs the time it takes to do the job.

Pros
B2W Software
  • Allows management to update costs for each individual item, equipment, labor, PR taxes, benefits, materials, etc.
  • Allows management to see how aggressive estimators have built an estimate to evaluate risk.
  • Allows monthly changes in fuel prices and liquid asphalt to quickly update the system for all.
  • Allows management to override margins for overhead and profit to match backlog and need for work versus budget.

eSUB Construction Software
  • It is built with subcontractors in mind. There are many PM software available but this one aims at the commercial subcontractor.
  • It does a great job covering the basics of typical commercial work. There are areas that allow you to customize such as adding reservations of rights to documents.
  • It can integrate with Microsoft quite a bit, we use this in our work every day and being able to export or sync data/calendars has been helpful.

Cons
B2W Software
  • We request changes to the software as issues crop up and the B2W process changes as needed.
  • A time-out function should be added to knock dormant users offline and allow other users access to the limited number of licenses the company owns.

  • I have no suggestions at the moment and if I ever do have a question, concern or suggestion, a quick email to eSUB gets a quick response.

eSUB Construction Software
It has been helpful whenever I've called. They have been able to walk me through solutions and even direct me to the right answer. There was only 1hr difference between time zones so this was manageable. If we experienced bugs, their IT department was helpful at remedying and they were always rolling out updates.

eSUB Construction Software
eSUB is not even close when it comes to the offerings that the others have. eSUB is a happy medium for the functionality it provides and is at an affordable price point that it doesn't break the bank. Other solutions are a lot more integrated into the company processes and procedures, which means more upfront investment to get the platform to go live. eSUB's simplicity makes it easier to roll out because it doesn't integrate with as many aspects of the business.

eSUB Construction Software
  • eSUB saves time as you don't have to type, print and send documents.
  • I like to call it "set it up once, use it a million times" as once you set up a customer, vendor etc... you can use them across multiple platforms.
  • It saves money as you don't need a pool of resources to manage a project due to its ease of use.
