    The user interface is very good. It is more intuitive in nature. It is easy to use and robust in operation. The dashboard is designed on modernized UI and the interface is also intuitive. I can easily navigate things on my own.

    e-Builder

    Well suited for the owner's side of managing multiple projects as it allows for all aspects of a project from development to closeout to be managed on one platform. Not as appropriate for a general contractor as there is better software out there. e-Builder's app is not as effective as others.

    Pros

    Backlog

    • Gantt chart
    • Github support
    Sanyam Jain | TrustRadius Reviewer

    e-Builder

    • Provide a document structure that is easy to navigate. All documents, even within a process, are stored in the document structure and easily accessed by those with the correct permissions.
    • Scheduling, especially with the new module is easy. It is helpful with a large organization where many hands touch projects to be able to forecast workloads (we have an in house engineering team who reviews all projects during their design phase)
    • Allows for easy interface with contractors and makes the submittal process more straightforward.

    Cons

    Backlog

    • The biggest drawback that I want Backlog to fix as soon as possible is that is does not provide any place to explain the problem or bug virtually.
    • There is a need for a tab or space to attach screenshot or video to easily explain the bug or problem in the project.
    Carol Aleman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    e-Builder

    • The restrictions in formatting, and sorting of information rendered, in a way, affects the reporting output.
    • At certain times of day, e-Builder traffic causes the loading of filtered searches to take a while. This is probably common regardless of the site or software used.
    • More complicated reporting has some limitation, though the program is highly efficient in assisting with simple format reports.

    Because again, one of our biggest clients entrusts E-builder to work with their systems. And its functions work for us as well.

    I would give 9 but one less because of the high price.

    Again, because our technical support is great. He doesn't always answer the phone but he definitely responds to emails fairly quickly. In addition, I like that he actually resolves an issue and I have yet to encounter the same issue twice. Actually, I haven't encountered many issues at all in the two years I have used the software.

    1. Set up the time to get training on the sytem before you go all in.
    2. Listen, ask questions and actually practice using the tools and features while in class. It helps tremendously with becoming comfortable and remembering how things work.
    3. Don't be afraid to mess up. They are helpful and will help resolve your issue in a timely manner

    Backlog has all of the top-notch features to increase productivity, visibility, and project tracking. Backlog is easy to use. I first just logged in to the platform and it was [ready] to go. I easily started working on it and it started giving me the bugs’ details on our project. Always available for queries. Listen to the queries very attentively and try to give a solution on the go if applicable. Otherwise, take some time and respond with the advanced workable solution in the limited time frame.

    We have not compared other plans since the boss prefers this program from personal experience. But from using this program for 2 years I can see why we don't need to compare. Why fix something that isn't broken? It gets the job done, yes we might run into some issues but I feel like with all companies that can happen

    Return on Investment

    Backlog

    • Software interns get easily used to this tool.
    • One who works in the SDLC gets recognized and it's easy to track rank board.

    e-Builder

    • Has added extra steps to processes that were previously easier. And I work for a university that complicates everything
    • Has more than cut in half the time it takes to generate reports about project status
    • Has made project management more efficient
