CASE STUDY: Above All Store Fronts
eSUB helps Above All Store Fronts organize and connect office staff and field staff with cloud-based project management and mobile applications to deliver superior business results. eSUB sat down with Dan Tagliaferri, Project Manager, Above All Store Fronts, to hear first-hand why his firm selected eSUB Construction Software.
“We have always tried to find ways to keep ourselves organized using programs such as Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Outlook with Emails, Calendars, and Tasks, said Dan Tagliaferri, Project Manager, Above All Store Fronts. "These tools all help in limited ways, but eSUB was the best Project Management program and mobile app that met our needs."
• Lacked organization within the team of Project Managers for tracking Purchase Orders, Job Costing, Change Request, Submittals, RFl's, & Correspondence
• No central repository for all project documentation and correspondence
• No mobile application for field-to-office communications
• Limited visibility across all projects
Improving business practices was paramount in migration strategy.
What has helped Above All Store Fronts most is being able to utilize eSUB features for handling Purchase Orders, Change Requests, Submittals, RFl's, and its Drawings in one format as a company standard.
Tagliaferri: The eSUB platform enables all our Project Manager's to do everything the same way and allows for management to easily track each project's progression. The construction industry in New York is extremely fast paced, so firms need a program like eSUB to help you handle projects efficiently and allow you to become more successful.
