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.

SharpeSoft
SharpeSoft [is] designed to be a day-to-day hard-bid estimating program. It is easy to learn and use, yet very powerful. I would not recommend this product to hourly service providers.

Pros
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.

  • This software is one of the easiest programs to learn and effectively use.
  • This software is reasonably priced, but very powerful.

Cons
eSUB Construction Software
  • 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.

  • They need to put a search bar in the item master list so you can easily find work items.
  • They could make the alternate package easier to use.
  • The should find a way to allow the user to define at least one cost type in the program.

Support Rating
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.

I think SharpeSoft is the best estimating product on the market for our type of work. It is reasonably priced and is very reliable. We have had very few problems with the software and the upgrades and support staff and reliable.

Return on Investment
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.
