We use eSUB Construction Software to manage our new construction and larger projects within our company. It addresses the problems with keeping track of documentation as well as purchase orders and other internal financial documents. The software is also outward facing so it gives us a little bit of a polish when communicating with our clients.
  • RFI management
  • Change Order management
  • Submittal management
  • Purchase order integration with Quickbooks
  • keeping track of progress billing or partial billing of PO's and sub vendors
  • time cards UI is really wonky for daily reports.
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.

  • It has cut down the time to do payroll, time tracking on our major projects
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.

eSUB has allowed the company to become more organized by utilizing its features to issue, log and track RFIs, CORs, POs etc. The whole company has used this program to help keep track of multiple projects, budgets and submittals. This program has helped us think more stream lined and efficiently by encouraging file and photo organization. It has proven most useful in tracking projects spanning over several months/years.
  • 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.
  • 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.
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.

  • It did well introducing our company to the office management side of construction and how to monitor overheads and budgets.
  • It has returned on its investment just based off of the facts that we catch more CORs and time and material work and is able to follow up on it.
  • It has made us double down on some of our work with Microsoft such as sending or tracking emails.
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.
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.

We use eSUB in our project management department for daily activities such as RFIs, submittals, transmittals, purchase orders, subcontracts, and change orders etc. It makes managing and tracking the progress of projects so much easier. Also, it has a great interface with the field as they can log on and see the various activities in real time, no need for separate emails. Any addressee can respond to a document with comments which is immediately forwarded to all parties. Saves a lot of time with multiple emails, copying etc...
  • 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
  • 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 is well suited for contractors on all levels of managing a project and is very user friendly.
  • 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.
I found eSUB to be more "user friendly" than Proliance or Procore and although just as professional looking, not quite as "stuffy" as these two.

eSUB if very user friendly, the support usually involves how to questions, but once a person is familiar with using it, questions taper off.

Yes
A simple email to tech support always gets me a response, plus having an actual person to contact is a plus.
Never had an issue with a request or suggestion.
Yes
Yes, as with any web based program, there are bound to be issues, but the immediate response and support are always there.
Not specific, always on point.
