The next phase of eSUB’s new user experience to be more modern, mobile, and flexible is launching soon – Project Summary. The goal of the new Project Summary screen is to present information in a meaningful way enabling users to receive a quick snapshot of a project’s key performance indicators.
We're still making improvements and we'd love to hear your feedback during this early preview. Please contact client support at email@example.com for any additional questions.
Highlights of the Redesigned Project Summary
eSUB captures a tremendous amount of data related to project costs, labor hours, and even time between approvals. See at-a-glance job costs or the average days of late responses to RFIs. The new dashboards in Project Summary screen make it easy to visualize and interpret critical project information.
The New Project Summary Screen delivers more flexibility for you to view the data in a way that is meaningful for you: either as a table, a bar graph, or a pie chart.
The table displays information in a straightforward grid. The graph will show you show you the value of each category, and historical data in some modules. The pie chart shows the relative proportion of each category as a percentage of the whole.
Field notes serve an important role in connecting the office to the field, providing a quick window into the project in real time. Because of that importance, the Field Notes have taken prominent placing in the Project Summary screen. The newsfeed of Field Notes optimizes the real estate on the screen and provides a scrolling view of jobsite photos.
eSUB’s biggest strength is the ability to track and view real-time job costs through the tracking of labor hours and committed costs through purchase orders and subcontracts. Now, users can get a quick snapshot of job costs against the budget.
Because we know that labor is the biggest risk to profit on a project, we’ve included the ability to view the daily report hours captured against the as-planned hours. When Project Managers enter the As Planned hours associated with the labor activity of the project, they can view the Manpower Report in the Daily Reports module bar graph.
Change Orders over time
Being able to quickly view change orders over time serves as important pulse check on the financial health of a project. Unapproved Change Orders that are proceeded on represent risk and potential Change orders represent opportunity.
Milestones signify the completion of different stages within a project. Now users can view important project milestones visually as well as in a traditional table.
We hope you are excited about this new project summary screen. This is much more than a UI update, as this sets the stage for development of KPIs and deeper analytics focused on trade contractors. Thanks for all your feedback and partnership as we continue to make eSUB more modern, modern, and flexible.
NOTE: The launch of the New Project Summary screen will give flexibility to choose which of the six main project key performance indicators to display, see Project Summary Settings.
