    BuildTopia is ideal for bringing all components of the sales and construction process together for any homebuilder. If you're looking for a platform that also incorporates a robust CRM component, which is key for strong sales efforts, you'll likely need to utilize another platform in conjunction with BT for the best results

    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

    Constellation HomeBuilder Systems

    • BuildTopia excels at contract management. Every part of the contract process is able to be managed electronically from initial signing to closing, and can even handle more special cases like contingencies.
    • BuildTopia manages all of our construction efforts well. All of our floorplans are pre-build in the system, so all we have to do is go in an build out the construction schedule from a pre-made template, and make any alterations from there.
    • The selections process is always a headache, but BuildTopia makes it pretty painless. Everything is loaded right in to the system while making selections with the client, and more detailed things, like non-standard options, are easy to load in and process.

    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

    Constellation HomeBuilder Systems

    • Requests for platform enhancements, while easy to submit and get approved, are slow to be turned around...often a year or more passes before they're implemented.
    • BuiltTopia, while good for sales and construction, is missing one large thing...a CRM component. The system allows you to manage clients and prospects, but options for email marketing and other CRM-related efforts are lacking.

    • 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.

        Return on Investment

        Constellation HomeBuilder Systems

        • Overall, our company has saved money by being able to shut down all the various platforms we were using for different departments and transition to just BuildTopia.
        • Company efforts are more efficient, with all pertinent information being in one place and able to be viewed by everyone as needed.
        • Efforts of the sales team are better able to be managed and reviewed from afar whereas we only had physical paper trails before.

        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.
