Procore

Our company works on both design and project execution. Design only projects do not work as well on Procore since its main goal is to aid in the project's construction development. However, as a design consultant, while the construction is being executed by someone else, it really helps to keep track of corrections, observations, punch lists and different tools to manage the project. And of course, in construction projects, it works really great.

Pros

  • All the hard work of trying to build a solution in Excel is done for you. You can create links to simple mobile-friendly forms and datasheets and it builds input forms automatically that can then be easily customized.
  • The relationships across tables are robust and deal with changes to fields and tables without the need for intervention or maintenance (like a proper database).
  • Initial set up and use require a minimal set of IT skills. Coming with an array of pre-built templates and the ability to import your existing spreadsheet and customize and fine tune it from there into a database
  • They don't contact me every day trying to sell their product (probably because they don't have to).

  • Document control - one place for everything. Just wish we could have all files move to new projects created with the project template.
  • Employee/contact Log - everyone's tickets and certifications, letters can be kept in one place listed per company. Just wish we could track expiries outdated training tickets or expired safety equipment or vehicle/equipment inspections
  • Project Management - allows many employees to participate in a single project with a level of permissions and always has the latest revisions.

Cons

  • The trial period should be a bit longer. I wanted to test it before I rolled it out to my team. Just after I felt comfortable and started to share, the trial period ended.
  • Shorter videos. I think there are great resources available and I really think that is a strength, but if I had to suggest something, it would be to make more short videos to give technical how-tos.

  • Notifications driven by the user would be beneficial so that the user can control how many notifications they get.
  • Bulk uploading of submittals i.e. drawings
  • Bulk downloading of submittals i.e. drawings
  • Number sets driven by trade i.e. SIS for Space Interior Systems.
  • A mechanism whereby drawings can be transferred from submittals to drawings when they are approved or reach construction status.
  • A day file: one place showing all the rfis open/closed, submittals open/closed, new drawing revisions and perhaps certain document folders across the project each day
  • a mechanism for sharing documents similar to google drive (live)
  • A daily summary notification as an option to replace the notifications as they happen.
  • For a submittals there should be a field which is is the tech sub spec compliant.
  • submittals - field which says for approval/for construction/for information away from the description which should be the description of the item submitted.
  • Flexible dashboard/home page so users can order the page to suit themselves

As I said, it's AMAZING, incredibly flexible -- totally intuitive, requiring almost no learning curve. I love that because it makes it easy to share with clients, without them having to learn how to use it.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

Procore has instant customer support via chat. If you particular issue cannot be resolved via the chat feature, they automatically notify customer support and you are notified through out the process that they are working on your issue. If your issue is very involved they will reach out to you via email and /or by telephone to walk through the issue and what is being done to resolve it. I've never had an issue just go to a black hole with no follow up.

A lot of the older generations are very skeptical of using Procore at first since they think it would be a waste of time and effort but Procore makes it really easy to understand and use most features. It does not take much software knowledge to do basic tasks like look at drawings, photos, RFI's, etc...

Alternatives Considered

I don't think there is a comparable product. Nothing I have seen is as intuitive to use and at the same time has such broad-reaching potential. I feel confident to onboard who have never seen Airtable only because it is so easy to use. At the same time, I feel we could spend the next year exploring the current functionality. It's probably the most exciting productivity tool I've seen in 18 months - I don't say that with hyperbole. It is going to change the game for our company and anyone else who uses it.

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

  • Saved time providing updates on where tasks are up to. Anyone in the team can go in and look to see where things are up to.
  • Allowed the team to have access to the same information at the same time, saving time in people asking each other for data and information.
  • Before Airtable we had information stored in several places - Excel, Confluence, emails, on individuals' computers - now we've put it all in one place.

  • Procore costs the same as another entry level employee. If you consider its ability great enough to perform as much or more of the tasks than a single entry level project engineer, then it's worth the high cost. But it has a lot of shortcomings and it is not as valuable as Procore thinks it is. It has great potential.
  • The efficiency in plan review and distribution is unfortunately the strongest aspect of Procore right now, despite its broad range of tools offered. There are too many fundamental shortcomings in each and every tool to make this a de-facto platform for the construction industry. Therefore, it has as many hurdles and deficiencies as its competitors, or even software like Prolog by Trimble, which is a fossil and needs to be replaced. Unfortunately the functionality of some tools like the change order process is as arcane as that platform is, but Procore doesn't even have the functionality to use Crystal Reports like Prolog does. And Procore's reporting tools are unacceptable.
