Our operation uses several pieces of what we call specialty equipment (not used every day on every job). The foreman when finished will give a location of where this equipment is left, this many times can be very vague and lead to a lowboy driver trying to block around to find the piece or driving down a street he cannot get turned around in. With the GPS devices, the driver can pinpoint exactly where the unit is and if he has room to turn around at that location.

Procore

[Procure is] great for managing construction projects of varying size and complexity. Software can be used for bidding and management. Can also be used by field employees to help with distributing information to field supervision and to subcontractors. Having important project information at my fingertips has been a huge help with the fast pace of todays projects.

Pros

HCSS

  • #1 is support! HCSS is by far the best software support of any product we have ever used. Unlike most software companies HCSS utilizes their support calls to help upgrade their software. When you here them tell you that they will write down a particular issue you come across during a support call if they can't help you then and there they will research and get an answer to you extremely fast. If the software will not do it, you can bet there is a good chance it will be on the list of enhancements you will see come out in the near future.
  • Estimating software is very extensive. Their software is capable of handling the smallest estimate all the way to the largest joint venture estimate. It has advanced features that make it extremely useful for analyzing job materials, subcontractors etc.
  • HeavyJob is an extremely useful tool for the field to keep the office up to date with job costs. Everything is at the Foreman's fingertips on Tablets to allow the information from the field to get uploaded to HeavyJob manager which then can export to accounting. We are also able to give our Foreman the ability to deal with the Daily and weekly safety needs (Tailgate Meetings, incident Investigation, observations etc.) right on the Tablets thru HeavyJob.

Procore

  • We use the drawings tool to manage our drawings. It keeps them organized and gives a detailed trail of revisions.
  • We use the specifications tool to manage our specifications. It keeps them organized and gives a detailed trail of revisions.
  • We use the RFI tool to manage our RFIs. It keeps a good record of all the RFIs throughout the project and the architect can respond within ProCore to answer the RFIs.

Cons

HCSS

  • All their apps are on mobile devices. Although there is not a clear company policy on Android versus iPhone. Updates for features lag behind on Android. Some apps are exclusive to one platform making it hard to fully interconnect all programs.
James Duncan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Procore

  • Procore's core project mgmt tools are not 100% fine-tuned. They are very slow to progress while Procore is trying to tackle market share in other related markets. The core tools seem to be [a] low priority for further development, for this reason, I suspect.
  • The email notifications are way too frequent and often do not have preference adjustments. They become white noise and are often ignored for this reason...not good for alerting project partners to important items on Procore.
  • It has not development reliable quantity takeoff tools. Most basic.

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.

I have non "techie" guys in the field who are using Procore on a regular basis and look to Procore for the updated information they need. Instead of phone calls they are able to get what they need right off most of the time.

If you are working in an area with little to no signal, Procore will still allow you to get in the system and use it fully and will then update once you are at a place with a strong enough signal. Whether it be with wifi or LTE cell phone reception.

I have never had a bad experience or heard of one in 4 years of doing business with HCSS. That is unheard of even with the hurricanes and flooding in Houston area it feels like HCSS was always there and willing to help in every way.

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.

Training can be at times hard to follow and a little boring, but this is your best bet to get the software on track and deployed into the field. Procore's web materials and videos can be helpful but the MOST helpful is when you are using the software and have the live chat support function at your disposal.

Implementation Rating

I was not employed with PPI upon implementation. I would prefer to reference my previous statement, that each company needs to evaluate its culture and address your implementation accordingly. The purchasing company should assign an employee as point person and really take charge of not just the technical side of the implementation (HCSS pretty much handles that), but focus on company culture and training.

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

HCSS

Other estimating products I have used consist of ICE/MC2 and MS Excel. ICE was not a good fit for our company, as they have awful technical support and offer very poor training. MS Excel is great for simple estimates where there is not a lot of data being compiled. However neither hold a candle to the power of HCSS Heavybid

Procore

We first utilized Procore because it was mandated by the Owner. However, after using it for a few years, I've found that it's my preferred platform. It works just as well (if not better!) than the other programs that I've used. It's typically more user-friendly.

Return on Investment

HCSS

  • The biggest ROI for us was the ease of adoption by field personnel.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Procore

  • It has standardized the data we collect from the field - giving us clearer outcomes.
  • It has increased efficiency - allowed for more organization of data.
  • The saved time when searching through daily reports. Example: Quick easy reports allow to pull all delays fast.
