Bubble PPM

No stage gate or portfolio reporting solution can overcome poor input data. The organization has to be willing to commit to consistent and rigorous updates of the information, or the reporting becomes useless. From what I've seen of competitive systems, Bubble Innovator is the easiest to use in this regard, so the excuse of not having good data because it's painful to upload or cumbersome to retrieve goes away. And the ease with which you can produce customized reports allows you to immediately find the gaps and weak points in your data, and take action to address them. That's not to say that every report and function in Bubble Innovator is perfect. But the close collaboration and responsiveness of the Bubble Innovation team has made it relatively easy to triage, prioritize, and implement improvements along the way.

Procore

Procore is attempting to be an attractive solution to GCs, Owners, and Specialty Contractors. It has tools that address many of the specific needs for each type of company. The financials are designed to incorporate a total contract value budget and those that cost budget may need to adjust their budgeting to utilize Procore's financial tools. This is most visible during the change order process. Field productivity and time tracking works pretty well for those that self-perform and need a time-tracking solution. This tool is not nearly as robust as some of the stand alone solutions, but again, it is part of Procore's single solution. The time reporting feature can be coerced into producing a printable weekly "timecard", but there is no way to get the individuals signature to accompany that timecard without dramatically increasing the physical print out size of the timecard. Individuals can electronically sign their timecards on their own smartphones. The submittal tool workflow is by far my favorite. The tool tracks a step by step flow of accountability that is very clear and easy to customize. RFIs are easy to use and an email reply will be automatically uploaded as an RFI response. The drawings tool needs work.

Cons

Bubble PPM

  • Development of custom functionality, and redefining 'standard' options for the software. As Bubble grows and their customer base increases there will be opportunity for this, at present development projects can be slow and expensive. However the standard software options are excellent, but as processes evolve within organisations the flexibility to evolve the software could be made simpler.

Procore

  • Some of our smaller subcontractors find the invoicing a bit cumbersome on their end (particularly those that are less computer-literate).
  • Terms and/or places where you perform different tasks sometimes change (and throw us off for a minute).
  • As with any software, there's a reliance on the data being input correctly initially, in order to be able to pull back out what you need.

The business has been extremely satisfied with Bubble Innovator and is in support of rolling this tool out to our other businesses within the overall franchise.

Procore has become integral to our business. There are no comprehensive solutions that could step in and fill the role. We have invested a significant amount of time fleshing out our Procore database. If we did not renew, that time investment would be lost. We have not identified a viable solution to the challenges Procore solves. Procore is dedicated to continually supporting Procore. We have invested in Procore as it is today and also what it is likely to become in the future.

The user interface is highly visual and simple. Literally within 10-15 minutes of my introduction to the software, I was up and running. Of course, deeper capabilities become apparent after additional use, but the basic functionality is very simple to grasp. Where there are consistent challenges reported by multiple users, the Bubble Innovation team is quick to connect and put plans in place to address the challenges.

Any time I have had to use support, it has been a great experience. The chat feature is super convenient. If chat support can't help for whatever reason, they transfer it a support tech and you get an email with the issue and who is working on it. I have always found that they keep in contact regarding any issue and follow up once it is resolved.

The number of variables made this extremely challenging (org changes, stage gate harmonization, pipeline prioritization, and new governance model). I think the implementation was handled very well in spite of this, and managed to deliver on time and on budget.

The hardest part about the implementation of Procore was getting all of our subcontractors uploaded into Procore and getting the correct contacts in for bidding. All of this information was with different people throughout our company, so getting it all into Procore and making sure it was correct was quite a challenge and caused the most growing pains for us. It was one of the reasons we had to wait to implement bidding because we couldn’t take the risk of sending out RFPs to people that weren’t correct or weren’t going to use Procore.

Alternatives Considered

Bubble PPM

We found Innovator provided all the functionality we required in a lightweight solution that was easy to configure to our processes, provided benefits to almost all those who accessed it with little or no training. Other systems may offer more depth of functionality but this makes them more cumbersome to use and requires more training of users. Innovator also offers a more transparent cost structure - you can immediately see what it will cost as all the functionality is automatically available within the price

Procore

Prolog was not as advanced as Procore when we did our Demo of both products in 2015. The web interface was not as user friendly for Prolog as it was for Procore. It seemed like Prolog was playing catch up to Procore. Procore has continued to change in the 3 plus years we have been using them. They are constantly adding new features and improving existing features.

Return on Investment

Bubble PPM

  • With financials being included in each SKU, it has lead us to be more finance focused and aware of what projects are more profitable than others.
  • It has given us a better oversight of what everyone is working on and the SKUs in our portfolio - allowed us to allocate resources more efficiently.
Laura Sew Hoy | TrustRadius Reviewer

Procore

  • change Orders. The Change Event tool captures all possible changes on the project. We use this to organize, communicate and decide. We have been able to capture a lot of dollars by using this process.
  • Efficiency. We have been able to have fewer office staff to manage the amount of project/$ we run through Procore. We use custom forms too to produce all the various documents our customers require for payment and it has cut our billing time down greatly.
