    Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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

    Cosential

    • Inputting of companies and leads who may become prospects.
    • Creating specific opportunities for construction projects.
    • Tracking opportunities through the entire sales cycle.
    • Inputting detailed notes and activity by the Sales team.
    Kevin Shaw | 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.
    Susan Evans | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Cosential

    • The open software is somewhat difficult to master as an administrator.
    • Report writing could be more intuitive.
    • The company seems to cater to larger users.
    Kevin Shaw | 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.

    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.

    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

    Cosential

    Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.

    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

    Cosential

    • Allowed for common tracking by business developers in different regions.
    • Helped us quantify effort.
    • Provides great reports for management.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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
