SAN DIEGO — eSUB Construction Software has announced a new product integration, bringing together PlanGrid’s field productivity application with eSUB’s project management and document control platform for collaboration and productivity in the field.
By integrating these two solutions in field data collection, eSUB and PlanGrid said they will deliver a complete mobile solution for construction subcontractors, specializing in HVAC, mechanical, electrical, and other types of construction work. The integration will help place up-to-date information at the fingertips of users no matter where they are.
“Our goal is to provide subcontractors with improved access to real-time information and superior data collection tools in the field via mobile and cloud-based technology,” said Wendy Rogers, CEO of eSUB Construction Software. “The integration of eSUB and PlanGrid’s applications will be instrumental in helping businesses make better decisions, attain greater efficiency both in the office and on the job site, and achieve higher profits.”

• Get paid for all the work they perform by allowing the office and field teams to stay connected to the latest files and quickly document work in the field.
• Mitigate litigation risks by hosting and preserving all project data in the cloud, even after the project is completed.
• Managing multiple jobs with instant access to information relevant to their work.
• Solve problems caused by unexpected conditions, such as weather.
• Remove obstacles to beat production rates.
• Collaborate closely and in real-time with general contractors.
