eSUB Construction Software

As a subcontractor - yes (overheads are a big deal, this can help manage it by being simple and productive)As a general contractor - no (I think there are more things a GC would need at their disposal)If your whole company is on board it can be a powerful tool, but everyone -even site workers, need to be 100% on-board. It can't do what it's supposed to do if only some are using it.

ZilicusPM

ZilicusPM is suited for any business that has difficulty managing and keeping track of office related work as well as project management. Its an efficient way to manage just about anything necessary. It is well-suited for our office, as structural/civil engineers - we are able to keep track of our projects as well as office/human resources related work.

Pros

eSUB Construction Software

  • Using multiple contacts over multiple jobs. Vendors, customers, personnel etc...
  • Sending out RFIs, submittals etc... to multiple people at the same time
  • Correspondence templates with drop downs makes sending out letters etc... effortless

ZilicusPM

  • ZilicusPM is great for an office regarding meetings and site visits. It's hard to keep track manually of where everyone is at. By sharing our calendars through ZilicusPM, we are able to access where someone is within a few seconds!! It is very convenient and less of a hassle.
  • This a great tool to use to manage all documents that enter in and out of our office for certain projects. It is hard to keep track of everything through our office, so this programs helps us manage things very efficiently.
  • This is great for prioritizing! I know many people in our office have an issue to do so. With the Project Issue Management feature, we are able to do this more effectively without causing any stress to our employees!

Cons

eSUB Construction Software

  • We use Microsoft daily for many things, its an essential program for many areas - the more eSUB can integrate with its core programs the more seamless the transition and daily use.
  • Its display platform could use a bit more of a face lift. It reminded me of late 2010's web-design or Microsoft visuals.
  • Its app functionality struggled in some areas, we tried using it but found there to be some bugs. Although IT was very helpful in response.

  • The only thing I would suggest that needs room for improvement is that you should break down Zilicus PM into different sectors. What I mean by this is that you branch off this program into different areas of expertise like accounting, engineering, etc. Every business is managed differently, so other options should be provided to accommodate each field.
  • Other than that, I am very pleased with this program. It was WELL worth the investment. Saving a lot of time and money spent per worker by using this!

Procore has a lot of layers and bells and whistles. eSUB is your meat and potatoes. I found eSUB more suited for our company vs Procore. However, Procore would be more suited to general contractors. eSUB didn't allow as much integration with Microsoft as Procore, but it wasn't significant enough for that to be a deciding factor. I think the difference comes down to what kind of company you are: if you have a lot to manage then maybe Procore if you just need organization, record keeping, budget structuring and get the job done then maybe eSUB.

ZilicusPM

We have used Microsoft Project for years. We loved it until we found ZilicusPM. ZilicusPM is more efficient and directive in our field. Microsoft Project does not provide as many features as ZilicusPM does. I am extremely grateful for having found ZilicusPM. It was recommended to us by an architectural firm that swore by this software.

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.

ZilicusPM

  • A positive impact that ZilicusPM has made is we are able to work more efficiently and prioritize what needs to be sent out, what invoices need to be sent out to clients, where are project engineers at certain time of day, etc.
  • We also have a higher ROI. I am able to manage what invoices need to be sent out without having to track people down for a summary of the work , which is extremely time consuming. I am able to get more invoices out while returning a higher investment for the company.
  • A negative impact it has made is we had to hire someone to manage this software entirely. It is very time-consuming for myself to manage and make sure everything is entered in correctly. We hired someone who is familiar with ZilicusPM and is able to certify all work.
