On this week’s episode of the #PowerToTheTrades Podcast, our host Rob McKinney has a conversation with Erich Litch of eSUB Construction Software.
eSUB Podcast Ninth Episode Recap
The ninth episode features Erich Litch who is the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of eSUB Construction Software, which is a project management software product created for specifically for Subontractor’s. Erich has worked at various different software companies, some public, some private and some in Construction software, some outside of Construction software, but always software over the last over 20 years. Erich told us that “I’m just really love the software industry and that’s been with Construction companies like Viewpoint and financial technology companies like Fiserv and 2Checkout.”
Erich “When you get over the hump into the, you know, majority adoption. And that’s when you unleash the power of technology widely in an industry or across the demographic, people you should talk about, let’s say elderly folks as being laggards in terms of technology adoption. And that took a long time to really get past.”
How can we empower the Trade Contractors in 2021?
Erich: “So we’re not just empowering the leaders in the managers, we’re empowering the field, right? And I’m, using Salesforce automation as an example. But this applies to Construction as well. You empower the field to be more productive with automation capabilities and tools that really enhance their lives, and you significantly enhance the value of the back office personnel on the managers and leaders, and the Foreman and people on the ground with the ability to better manage and control what’s going on.”
This was another excellent discussion about the use case of technology in the construction industry, and how we can improve moving forward this year!
