Cosential

Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.

Dubsado

I would say it's best suited for small businesses (solo entrepreneurs or less than 10 employees) who work on a project basis.

Cons

Cosential

Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Dubsado

  • Sometimes it's hard to see the buttons, like the ADD button. Maybe it could be in a darker color?

Cosential is very intuitive for the AEC industry and has the ability to be customized for your specific needs. The reports are especially helpful, with good visual dashboards.

My original trainer / implementation specialist was fantastic. That relationship has continued, even though I have been officially handed off to the customer service side. The customer service side seems to have higher turnover than normal, but in general they are also very supportive, although not as responsive as I might like.

Alternatives Considered

Cosential

Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.
Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

Dubsado

Dubsado overall is so multifunctional that the other platforms didn't stand a chance. I will say I do use ClickUp alongside Dubsado. Dubsado isn't super awesome for task organization and management, but ClickUp blows all the other task management software out of the water. Combining the two has been a game changer for sure.
