Aconex

[It is] well suited to large scale complex construction projects with many participants. Aconex requires patience and training and, although it's good, it could be better. Short duration, small projects probably aren't a good fit.

Procore

ProCore works great for our General Construction side of our business. As a GC, it functions well. We also are a self-performing electrical contractor, however, and find it has short-comings in that arena, particularly in the slightly unwieldy way that Invoices are handled. As a GC you might receive 20 to 40 invoices (pay applications) on a given job each month. As a self-performing contractor, we can have hundreds and hundreds of "tickets" or invoices to enter each month. Materials are purchased, many times, in small quantities from multiple vendors. The process to enter and track an invoice is the same whether it is for $1 or $1M.

Pros

  • File Sharing - unlimited storage, version control and access control on a neutral host - Aconex is significantly superior to ftp, SharePoint or a contractor hosted platform in that once onboarded, each user organization has equal privileges and can in turn onboard any number of members within the respective organizations.
  • Process and Workflow Management - while imperfect, Aconex offers the opportunity to customize process control and enforcement. Our team used these processes for RFI preparation and response, submittal tracking and other custom requirements.
  • Neutrality - while mentioned, the neutral host places all project participants on a equal basis. Typically, non-neutral platforms favor in-house participants to the detriment of the project. Until shared, files are 100% private to the respective organizations.
  • Mobile interface - good (not perfect) access to unlimited project file information from a mobile device.
  • Audit trail - no more "I didn't get that document". File sharing and file opening is tracked by user. Transmittals are a matter of record and there's no 'delete' function.

  • The support is amazing. Live chat or by phone. They always are able to walk you through anything that you may not be familiar with.
  • Ease of use. We have many employees that aren't real comfortable with computers or technology and they have been able to pick up on the software and navigate the program easily.
  • Save time and money. We have been able to be more efficient using Procore. We had problems with guys forgetting things on the job and failing inspections. We have checklists in Procore that they check off before inspections and have greatly reduced our inspection failures. We are able to get them the cut sheets and changes to the plans quickly to keep the jobs moving forward. When they go to the job they have the address and contact info for the contractors they need to communicate with. This greatly reduces phone calls and questions to allow us to focus on other aspects of the jobs.

Cons

  • Interface needs work; graphically inelegant, somewhat non-intuitive.
  • Process controls could be better 'templated' for industry standards.
  • Dashboard/to do for project managers - it's still too hard to see who is slowing the project down.

  • Missing ability to overlay drawings on desktop version the same way you can on mobile (only overlay of previous versions of same drawing are available)

The implementation went well. We had to cut off our old software for new jobs and start using Procore.

Alternatives Considered

I am currently using file sharing such as Egnyte and ShareFile which are useful but don't have much of a transmittal or inmail functionality so I can't really speak to other products in the same league as Aconex. I don't typically like proprietary contractor solutions due to their non-neutrality and embedded agendas, which often are not consistent with the owner's interests.

Procore was the system of choice for BW as our sister companies in the US and Australia also use it.The main difference I notice about Procore compared to other systems I have used is the flexibility of the system in terms of meta data for example.

Return on Investment

  • Reductions in print costs alone (subcontractor bid process) paid completely for the use of the product. Further benefits to all project participants included process streamlining and 100% access to all project documentation (Drawings, Specifications, Contracts, Notices of Change, Change Orders etc.) from any online source including mobile devices. Benefits probably accounted for 150% of product cost.
  • Intangible benefits included reduced exposure to claims as a result of good (and agreed process tracking).

  • Procore saves time on document management and getting information to site
  • Saves time on follow up calls/emails for approvals by automatically sending reminder emails
  • Quick and easy report generator saves time on tracking
  • Drawing markup tool saves time searching for information, as it's all in one place
  • Drawing mark up tool has saved time on site and generated change orders by finding discrepancies between different trade drawings
