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 as a great project management tool, managing the timeline, documentation, drawings, contract and commitments, change orders, etc. I was able to add customized details to the admin page so that we could track specific items for each project that our company desired. Procore staff was very helpful in explaining this process and assisted in setting up.Procore is not suited for estimating. The bidding tool is for bidding on existing projects and trying to manage anything prior to the actual project being awarded is too difficult.

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.

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.

  • ProCore has been very good at rolling out updates. That being said, the Financial reporting still has room for improvement. While it is not full-blown accounting, it has the potential to replace such at the Project Management-level. They have made improvements and will continue to improve, I believe, to make the financial tools better.
  • Success has its downsides, and one potential weak point is that, as more and more users adopt Procore, it can be a challenge for the servers to keep up. It is not uncommon to get Loss of Service messages at peak times (end of the month, end of the year, etc). The outages haven't lasted for extended periods of time (usually an hour or less), but it IS a leap of faith to have Procore and the "cloud" your sole avenue for reaching your critical data.
  • It would be nice to be able to easily modify certain forms. For example, we are a Federal contractor and must use very rigid government forms for simple things like submittals and daily reports. A greater degree of flexibility to modify the output of these forms/reports to meet our specific needs would be great. We have tried to utilize the "custom report/form service" that they offer, but have had mixed results. What we really want is the ability to modify the output how we need it.

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.

Viewpoint and Procore are pretty comparable, both very robust products. I haven't used Procore's financial tools so I can't compare them in that way.

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).
Mark Potter profile photo
  • Saved A TON of paper.
  • Definitely increased efficiency.
  • Saved a lot of time and effort sending emails with the automation features.
  • Easily documenting drawing revisions and changes.
