Procore is a project management software designed specifically for the construction industry. Procore is cloud-based and allows unlimited users per instance, so that construction team members and stakeholders can all access project information and documents.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/Mo/aC/9PT9T91J851F.JPEGAwesome product, but an even better company to work with to implement and improve it!Procore is being used across our organization. It is the sole product that we utilize for project management for our operations department, and it integrates with our accounting software and is used by our accounting department as a backcheck. We have started using it to address quality control/assurance on projects, and it has helped to improve our QA/QC process as an organization. It additionally has been able to unify our processes across the organization, which was a problem prior to our use of the tools.,Helps to create submittal logs from specs with less input from PMs. Helps to label and organize uploaded plans and specs without a lot of input from PMs. Tracks changes in commitments (subs and purchase orders). Works with clients to customize. Training. Responsiveness to improvement suggestions from clients. Involves end users in planning for future product rollouts and tool improvements. The mobile app is easy to use.,The photos tool needs to be able to link photos across almost all tools from within the tool directly.,10,Prolog, Bim360 and Vista by Viewpoint,We have absolutely benefited, by engaging our architects in the submittal approval process and our owners as well. This allows for seamless material procurement. Collaboration with the meetings, documents, and emails tool is easy and creates a reliable project record, which is incredibly important in the business. It is also easy to navigate; you don't spend a lot of time searching.,Saved time. Paperless. Increased productivity. Uniformity in processes and procedures across operations. Provides a backcheck of accounting accuracy because of integration with accounting software.,Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections Identify job site risks Track cost impacts from the field Streamline financial reporting,10Great product to keep all construction activities under one roof!We use Procore for our entire Project Management needs for construction use. It handles everything from financial budgeting, to cost reports, RFI tracking, submittal tracking, change orders, pay applications, drawings and specification organizations and photo management. It helps keep subcontractors and vendors on the same page with information, as it's used for bidding out projects as well. Does everything for us except handle schedules.,Drawing management RFI / Submittal organization Financial reporting Invoicing,Interfacing with Architects and Engineers Interfacing with Subcontractors Have not used scheduling feature - appeared that it didn't integrate well with programs we use,8,,Depending on the project and Owner / Design Team, it's been a mix. Some use it well and others simply refuse. I have had some architects who refuse to use it, so things get generated thru Procore and then sent the old fashioned way thru emails. Then the info is backfed into Procore. Not as streamlined, but at least the organization can be maintained.,Saved paper Keeps things organized all in 1 location,Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections Track cost impacts from the field Streamline financial reporting,7Procore is a great Project management tool for ConstructionWe use Procore for our Project Management. We use all the Procore modules from field tools to financials. Procore addressed the issue of connecting our stakeholders from Architects to Subcontractors and Owners. Procore allows our project teams to more effectively manage their projects. We integrate Procore into our Sage Accounting system allowing two way communication.,Procore manages our drawings effectively by always keeping everyone on the latest revision. Procore's punch list tool is very effective at tracking punch list items from initiation to completion. The Change Events tool is very useful in starting the Change order process.,The Bidding module does not update subcontractor info automatically like BuildingConnected. Some of the financial integrations can be tricky depending on your work flow.,10,Prolog,The Drawing tool is a great example of the power of Procore. We used to have to email out or print out new plans every time there was a revision. Now, with the Procore drawing tool, all stakeholders always have the latest revision at their fingertips on their phone, tablet or computer.,We save paper We save time We prevent errors caused by a lack of communication,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections Identify job site risks Track cost impacts from the field Streamline financial reporting Improve forecast accuracy,9PROCORE: supporting NCM's growthProcore was implemented within our organization to increase productivity, reduce time spent on communications, and to ensure the quality of our communications from the sites was excellent all the time. Since its inception, we have expanded it out to our estimating department. It now allows us to send a project out for tender in a very short period of time and to qualified subcontractors who are suitable for the job.,Document Control: The power here is how a new set of drawings can be overlaid, uploaded, and disseminated to everyone who needs them within a matter of minutes and to a very detailed standard. Defects Management: The process of defects management is a time consuming and detailed process when moving your project to Practical Completion. This module systematically tracks and communicates defects very efficiently. The WR code system has reduced our administration time and impressed our clients in a big way Quality Assurance: We have been able to upload our ITPs into Procore which are now a standard checklist that site managers must complete at designated hold points along the way. These control measures have helped us maintain our high-quality standard and established a level of consistency across all our sites.,Programme: The scheduling component could be a lot better. We still use Microsoft Project as Procore is not a suitable alternative at this stage Subcontractor Progress Claims: Other major Project Management systems integrate a portal for the management of the subcontractors progress claims and other required documents Time Management: We still operate our time management manually. Procore could benefit from a module that tracks forecast completion dates, Contract completion dates, Extension of Time Claims (and approvals), Notices Of Delay. All of these should be at the Head Contract & Subcontract levels. Submittals: This needs some work. When a document is rejected by an approving authority it should jump back to the previous step and be allocated to that person who is responsible.,8,Yes, Procore has allowed us to manage all stakeholders on the project in one place. The uptake of the program for organizations & people who are not aware of it seems to be good.,Saved Time (and therefore money): Procore has significantly cut down on the time spent communicating on a project. This has allowed us to run our projects with fewer administration hours without a reduction in the quality of our communications Ensured Quality: Procore has ensured that quality results are gained the first time which has cut down on delays from defects Increased Professionalism: Clients are impressed with the professionalism delivered through the program and the simple ease of use compared with Acconex and other similar programs,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections Identify job site risks Track cost impacts from the field Improve forecast accuracy Simplify employee time tracking,8Mixed bag overall, but there are some very good features with Procore!We are using Procore to provide better integration between Project Managers, Field Staff, Administration, and Subcontractors. It does a great job with getting plans out in the field on a timely basis and assisting with field reports, photos, and reminding those involved with its ball-in-court process, etc.,The ball-in-court system provides up to date information on where things are in the system and reminding those of deadlines. Far better than a task list! Having the plans online and in the cloud allows everyone to have the most recent plan at their fingertips. Also, the way that red-lines stay with the plan, even with updates, is a great feature. Its ability to archive project related emails, by means of a simple "CC:", is extremely helpful.,Integration with accounting could be vastly improved. Procore can create a Schedule of Values and sync that with our Sage 300 CRE (which we converted to because of its integration with Procore). However, even though Procore can produce Subcontractor's requisition, Sage can't import that. So, we still need to enter it into Sage. We likely would not have converted to Sage 300 had we known this. Document production. Though we were under the impression that it would produce documents, upon implementation we learned that it essentially produces a cover page. Document production needs to be done elsewhere. A better description of Procore's ability in this department is that it's a document manager, not a producer. We are a bit unique, but we do not find the Estimate/Budget tool to be of value. We do not budget in great detail, so once it's being bought out we have too much retouching to make it worth our time.,6,Procore's ability to have the most up to date information available to all point of access is key. The office, field, and subcontractors are all working with the most recent version.,The efficiency we've gained in terms of ensuring the field and subs have the most up to date plan at their fingertip, whether on tablet or phone, is immeasurable.,Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections Streamline financial reporting,6AWESOMEProcore is being used to manage all of our projects. We use almost every tool available to us in some way shape or form. Procore has solved our billing, purchasing, and field communication issues. One of our biggest problem is submittals. The follow-up and reminder alerts are the key. Daily reports and photos from our men help our PMs stay in tune with what is going on day to day.,Customer service is the most helpful tool. Whether it be through the chat or a phone call, the issue is always resolved. Training videos Always adding new tools,The change order tool is cumbersome Sometimes the drawings take forever to download The sync between drive and online seems to be delayed,10,,We have not. In our company, we are actually the subcontractor in most situations. We make Procore work for us.,PC has improved OA project performance Simplified communication PC has sped up our billing process.,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections Track cost impacts from the field Improve forecast accuracy,5Procore will save you time and money!We use Procore across the whole organization--all employees have access to the software. We use it to manage almost all of our active construction projects (as a general contractor, we do mostly tenant improvements, as well as some ground-up commercial buildings). In my position as Accounting Assistant, I'm responsible for billing all of our clients (i.e., property owners) and also for remitting payment to all the subcontractors. Both of these functions are done using Procore.,Owner billings are simple and easy to do, I can get them done very quickly. Subcontractor invoicing is simplified, as contract amounts and change orders are right there--no guessing or arguing with subs about dollar amounts. Budgets are easy to read and understand for the purposes of coding non-subcontractor invoices (for materials or other services).,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.,10,Prolog,We have absolutely benefitted from the collaborative aspect, as we require all of our employees (on-site and off-site) to use Procore, and most of our subcontractors use it as well. We're a little more hesitant to invite our owners/clients to Procore, but that does work well for some of our Project Managers. My favorite part is the collaboration with the subcontractors on their invoicing--the ability to have a Project Engineer (PE) or Project Manager (PM) enter a change order which is then immediately available for a subcontractor to add to their billing is terrific, and saves me a ton of time.,Saved time chasing down change orders, both on the client end as well as the sub end. Increased efficiency by providing the ability to bill more jobs in a shorter time frame. Increased collaboration between the office staff and the field staff, providing access to information without being physically in the same place.,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections Track cost impacts from the field Streamline financial reporting Improve forecast accuracy,10Procore is the best ROI.We use Procore across our whole company to manage all our construction projects. We use it on the operations and accounting sides; through the entire workflow. It has helped us manage a ton of jobs as we are growing quickly. It helps us communicate tons of information we have to gather throughout the project and report to our customer. It has streamlined so many of our processes. I use it for accounting-things like tracking change orders and issuing pay apps—and it has helped us capture dollars from change orders and has helped our bill accurately and timely. I save a ton of time by using custom forms Procore helped me create too. We use most tools. Our field people are getting really good with the mobile app and report things daily to the office staff through the program.,Customer service is the best. I work with a lot of companies and softwares and Procore has always been the best at being professional and responsive. Constant improvement. They are always gathering our opinion on improvements and then actually implementing it. In 2 years I have seen great improvements Mobile app. Though not perfect, the mobile app puts the tools in the hands of the field people so that they do their job well and get us, office people, the data daily. Most field people use tablets or phones. We use the desktop/web format in the office to manage the program with more detail.,Integration. There are a couple of little things that their integrations don't always do requiring some manual entry to our accounting software. It is still a very good integration and always improving but can be limiting at times. We use QuickBooks Desktop. Vendor manager permission. Currently, in order to manage vendors in Procore, you have to have complete access to the entire system as an admin. We really don't like this. I want a vendor manager ability for people to add vendors with being an admin so that my AP department can manage vendors without seeing everything on the project or company. This has really been the only major complaint we have had. Otherwise, their permission structure is amazing and helpful. They are constantly making granular permissions which has helped in other areas but not this one.,10,,The ability to enter data one time and then produce reports is amazing. I would like to see a few other features with reporting, but overall their customer reporting tool is great and I have made a ton of reports. The more we grow the more reports I make to keep us effective. Each tool has reporting features as well to drill down. It helps us have very efficient communication and decision making meetings. So, overall, Procore has helped us be organized and very efficient. We use a few office staff to manage a lot going on in the field. However, the approval flow in Procore is not that good. I have recommended there be a way for Project managers to approve a bid (in bidding tool) so that it can be made a PO and that a PM can approve a CE for a CO or PCO. I have created my own statuses in Change events so we can discuss the workflow. Overall change events is a great tool. I think there are some other approval flows for pay apps and invoices but I have not started using them. I want to look into these soon.,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.,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections Track cost impacts from the field Streamline financial reporting Improve forecast accuracy,8Pleased with ProcoreAt this time, Procore is being used by our construction administration department only, although we are considering expanding its use to our design teams as well. We use it to document and route our construction management activities in collaboration with the general contractors.,Provides transparency regarding who is doing what within each record, via the history tab. Automates notifications and routing of submittals and RFIs via the workflow tool.,Better control of emails; while we use the granular email options within each tool that we use, we are still in the process of refining that due to user feedback regarding excessive emails. The format of emails sent is difficult to comprehend quickly. Text formatting, placement, and clarity regarding what is actually being conveyed need improvement. Emails need to be more accurate; for example, when a revised document is being sent via email, the email itself should include the revision number. And when a submittal is assigned to someone for review, the email should show who actually assigned it to them, not just the submitter name, which is misleading. And those that are merely copied on the email should not receive an email saying it has been assigned to them. Submittals versus submittal packages is a bit unwieldy still and does not conform to how many of us in the industry are accustomed to receiving, reviewing and returning submittals. Bulk actions for multiple submittal items in one package would be nice. Allowing us to re-number meeting agenda items would be great. Now, if we make a mistake when creating an agenda and need to delete or move an item, it does not properly re-number the items. Including the approver/reviewer's due date for submittals in the email they receive, rather than the final due date, would be huge. We often have multiple reviewer/approvers on submittals, and they need to know when we need it back from them, not when we are required to return to the contractor. An awareness of the fact that not all users are using Procore all day, every day. Many A/E consultants are only accessing the program when they need to retrieve an item or respond to an item. Provide more granular permissions. Allow me to allow a standard level user to create an open RFI. Allow me to allow a standard level user to do other tasks that are an important function of their work while maintaining control of the tools and functions that are not. This comes back to recognizing that not all users are general contractors, receiving work from their subcontractors and that the way we work in Procore is different than the way a GC does.,10,Prolog and PlanGrid,Procore has helped us by allowing the different stakeholders on our projects access to see the documentation, while not necessarily needing to be copied on the day-to-day correspondences. It's also been a nice "one-stop" spot for all things related to the project, including time-lapse video. Our project managers appreciate the ability to respond to RFIs on the fly, by using the mobile app, rather than needing to wait until they return to the office. It's also convenient to be able to access the program from any computer, anywhere, at any time, if needed, rather than needing to access a desktop based program.,We've definitely saved paper by implementing Procore and other electronic solutions. Efficiency has been increased for us by some degree due to the automation of tasks, such as workflows and workflow templates.,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date,8Our Procore experience, and why I'm a believer...We are a General Contractor that has been using Procore for almost 3 years now to manage various construction projects. Procore is used for our production scheduling, drawings documentation and management, RFI's, Submittals, Subcontracts, Safety documentation, and Financials. We have just completed our first project since implementing Procore, it is a 381 unit Apartment complex, and it has been very beneficial in its reliability, portability, and gained efficiencies we have realized since implementing this application, and also demanding that our subcontractors also use Procore for the access of our project information. There are many other modules/capabilities that Procore offers, but we have not yet taken advantage of those opportunities, but plan on investigating them as time allows, to see if they will help our company in further raising the bar for us.,Procore always provides the "current" drawing when requested, but also allows for immediate access to down-revision versions if needed. So gone are the days of outdated drawings in the field and carrying around pounds of dirty, unreadable paper drawings! Procore's portability and access by any device that has web access is invaluable, regardless whether in the office, on the job site, or anywhere, so long as you have connectivity to the web you can get to the information you need. Procore is very flexible in being able for our company defined "Procore Admin" to define what kinds of visibility and permissions users may have within their Procore access.,It would be nice when creating a new user, to be able to simply "copy" the profile of an existing user to create the new user's profile, but before "finalizing" the profile to simply edit those fields which are unique to the new user being created, such as the name, phone number and e-mail address, as this would be a big time saver. This would be similar to the "Copy Daily Log" functionality, which helps greatly.,10,Prolog and PlanGrid,The functionality and accessibility of Procore have been very beneficial from the standpoint of the sharing, and discussion of designs, field issues, solutions between us, our clients, our subcontractors, our City Building Officials, and our consultants. There have been numerous times when a field condition has arisen where we have beenforced to create an RFI, and the ability to do this from the field where you can take pictures, attach them to the RFI, and ship it all off to the engineer, or architect. They can have immediate access to this data on Procore, and we are able to discuss the solution in moments when necessary is invaluable. Then when a Building Inspector wishes to see the RFI response, while in the field, it is very easy to pull up the RFI response, and see all the supporting documention from the field by simply calling it up on his smartphone, or tablet.,Yes, to all of the stated benefits. We have saved time, increased efficiencies, reduced the amount of paper normally used, and made far fewer mistakes by our subcontractors because they were always using the "current" drawings. We initially did get some pushback from our subcontractors when they were told we would be using Procore exclusively on our project, and that they would need to request user access from us, and they'd need to have smartphones, or tablets to access the application., but once they got onto PROCORE, and we trained them how to access the data they required, they became "believers" very quickly, and stated they wished all of their other clients used PROCORE!,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections Identify job site risks Track cost impacts from the field Streamline financial reporting Improve forecast accuracy,10Procore: Collaboration, Efficiency, StandardizationWe specifically use Procore in our Data Center group, which specializes in assessment/design/build of mission-critical facilities. Procore acts as the sole source of information around design, specifications, RFI's and submittals. Procore helps us to streamline the flow of information and ensure all parties are working from the most current and relevant information.,Submittals: We really like the workflow functionality here, which allows us to assign and easily track where the ball is and who is responsible. It also gives us a repository for information that has proved invaluable - both during the project and following completion. Drawings: The ability to upload drawings and share across all trades, with version history, is extremely helpful. Assures all trades are working from the same drawings, and that the drawings are the most current revision. RFIs: This gives us a place to track questions on design, field changes, issues, etc. It is also a good tool for managing these changes and ensuring they get back into the design drawings throughout the project so that the as-builts are up to date.,We use ConnectWise for project managemenet, and all of our financial information needs to be tracked through this software. Due to this, we do not utilize the financial component of Procore. We would love to see a CW integration, so that this module would be useful for us. Lien Waiver tracking: We tried to create a custom tab for this, but it is clunky. Lien Waivers are an important component of our process and we would appreciate a better way to track them. Resource Management: Scheduling and task management is lacking in the Procore tool. We've yet to find the right product that solves the issue of tracking to milestone dates for major deliverables, associated resources, and a comprehensive resource scheduling tool that overlays all projects - showing where the collisions are.,9,,The main benefit we've received lies within the increased collaboration between the office and the field. Our designers work out of the office, while our construction supervisors (CS) work in the field. Often times, in the days before Procore, we were finding that the CS was solving issues on site—For example, equipment clearance, conduit collisions, incorrect elevations, etc.—and this information was not making its way back tot he designers. When design issues or questions would subsequently come to the design team, they were working with out of date information because they were unaware of the changes that had occurred in the field. With Procore, most of this pain has been eliminated.,Increased efficiency from having all relevant documentation located within the same repository. Decreased the amount of confusion and instances where the wrong "thing" is completed or installed - resulting in less negative impacts on projects overall. Increased team collaboration: leading to a tighter team dynamic.,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Track cost impacts from the field,Procore: Constructing a more efficient way to manage your project!We use Procore for most aspects of bidding and project management. All construction/pre-construction teams use Procore. Procore has given us the ability to work more closely with our subcontractors and clients. Having one platform for submittals, pay apps, drawings, etc. is a major advantage.,Subcontractor pay applications: Standardizes format, submission time frame and reduces errors. Also prevents subcontractors from billing change orders that have not been approved. Incidents Tool: Allows superintendents to quickly document issues and forward the information to the appropriate parties immediately. Records like this are invaluable for dispute resolution. Drawings Tool: Allows us to maintain the most current set of drawings while recording the change progression of each drawing. Our subcontractors and clients always have access to the current drawings so this limits confusion. Procore also allows us to easily send updated drawing links to our subcontractors for pricing and review.,Bidding: I've noticed improvements but more needs to be done (choosing trades to invite, recording notes). Would especially like to see a vendor database that is managed by the individual vendors. Directory: Need more robust search features. It would be nice to be able to print distribution lists. Daily Logs: It should be easier to search and view daily reports and to print multiple reports.,10,BuilderTrend and BuildingConnected,We have benefited. Our superintendents like being able to access the most current drawings. Our subcontractors are pleased with the pay application process. Owners like being "in the loop" with RFIs and submittals.,Improved relationships (subcontractors and owners). Definitely saved time and paper. Less confusion regarding the most up-to-date information: Drawings, submittal status, RFI answers, commitment status.,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections,8ProCore is a best in class project management software that integrates with just about EVERYTHINGProcore is being used across our whole organization as not only a project management tool, but also as a tool for communicating financial information on projects to our accounting department. We use Procore because not only is it able to easily address our project management needs in a user-friendly and intuitive way compared to other products, it also "talks" to our accounting software, which allows us to have real-time information in both areas. It effectively connects all areas of our business together and gives us an easy method to ensure that everyone is using the same methods for getting their work accomplished.,Procore integrates with other software platforms exceedingly well. They are constantly adding new integration options, and do so in order to allow their users to continue to use other interfaces that may do something Procore cannot, or cannot do well while integrating the information into Procore allowing it to remain the "one-stop shop" for all project information. Procore does a great job with customer service. They have multiple avenues for customer assistance including phone and chat and are one of the best companies I have dealt with in this regard bar none. Procore does a great job of really quickly integrating user suggestions into their program. Users can tell Procore what would help them that doesn't currently exist, and unlike other platforms, they will actually integrate these suggestions.,I don't think that Procore has a lot to improve, with the exception of rolling out their Viewpoint Integration. It has kind of come in "pieces" which has had the advantage of giving users a chance to get used to the functionality, but I would have preferred all options to be available at once.,10,,Absolutely. Our organization has large projects with large teams that require a lot of communication. The subcontractors being able to join into the conversation for free has benefited us greatly. It means that on each of our projects, each subcontractor receives communication in the same way, it is all documented and there are no questions about that. It also means that if personnel on projects are interchanged, they know where to go to find information, because it is always in the same place.,Saved Time Increased efficiency Streamlined processes and created uniform processes across all project teams.,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections Identify job site risks Track cost impacts from the field Streamline financial reporting Improve forecast accuracy Simplify employee time tracking,10Procore for Project Management -- A Bundle of Quality Features Making Your Job EasierProcore is being used as a project management software to track our projects from start to finish, including contract, commitments, change orders and the like. We send out bid invites to our subcontractors, follow a timeline, upload documents and drawings and maintain our communication history. We use the app on site so our foreman can keep things up to date in real-time.,Commitments Tracking Project History Drawing Management,Uploading large quantities of contacts into the address book Generate a more user-friendly custom reporting Additional features for the Procore phone app,8,,Having the cloud based access is very helpful in getting real-time updates from the job site while several of the team members are stationed in the office or traveling to other locations. This allows the PM to manage the various projects and find out what is happening without having to be at each site all day. Accessing reports, documents, drawings is so important and not having to be in the office or at a laptop to obtain this information is so valuable.,Tracking is more efficient since it is all collected in one location Drawing access and knowing what version we are working from easily saves a lot of wasted time Improving areas that lack is easily identified and we are able to improve for the next project.,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Track cost impacts from the field Streamline financial reporting Improve forecast accuracy Simplify employee time tracking,8Great PM Tool.Procore is the tool we use for the control of all our projects. We are a Construction Management/Consulting firm. Our role is always as either the project owner's representative or supervision. In all the projects we are hired to manage, we bring Procore as a "must use" tool for all the contractors/subcontractors that are brought into the project. It is used to keep all our documentation, as well as keeping track of the plans and financials of each project.,Keeping track of current drawings and changes. Particularly in large projects, this is extremely helpful as you can get lost between revisions. Manage Punch Lists. Nobody can escape from pending items belonging to them. I've had contractors calling me asking to get rid of the reminder emails. I just tell them, "it's simple...complete the item and document it." Otherwise, it won't go away. Manage RFI's and Submittals. Keep your insurance and bonds updated. If you set your valid dates, the reminders will help you keep your policies updated.,Searching for related items across tools. A lot of times during a project, an RFI or a Drawing Revision will trigger a submittal, a change request, change order, etc. A tool or field selector that lets you tie items to others would be very useful in searching for the specific history or timeline of an even. Perhaps using keywords and then allowing for searches of items having that keyword. An Observation or Inspection can become a Punch List item if not attended. Managing the use of this software between colleagues could be improved if the system would allow searching for the logins of a particular user in spans of more than 7 days. In dispute resolution, to make a point of whether a user has been using the tool as requested, it becomes hard to gather the necessary information because you have to go on a week-by-week basis. On a typical construction project going on for 12, 18 or 24 months, this becomes a tedious task that can't be assigned to lower administrative levels, since it can only be performed by people having administrative rights, who are typically high-level managers, whose time is very expensive.,9,Oracle Primavera Portfolio Management,Having the capability of giving direct access to the owner of the project has been a great advantage since it keeps them informed of what is going on, and when their involvement is necessary. In our business, sometimes only the owner can put pressure on the design team. Procore has helped us in keeping the owner informed of when a reply from the design team is overdue or about to be, triggering immediate responses.,Printing costs on the project are reduced significantly: Most current drawings are available online, with markups included. No need for printing submittals with copies, etc. Pending items are rarely "forgotten" since once they are entered in the system, unless issues are closed, reminders keep arriving.,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions Report on incidents and inspections Track cost impacts from the field Improve forecast accuracy,7,8,,We recently completed for one of our clients the construction of an aircraft hangar. The use of Procore was essential in keeping a very detailed record of the plans and specifications since the GC was also the designer. Procore helped us protect our client from changes that in some cases would have resulted in lower quality. One of our clients is a developer that has its own construction design/construction department. They have their own Procore license and it is used in all their projects. In a warehouse construction project we managed for them, an early occupation by one of the tenants caused that the GC could not complete all the punch list items before the space was handed over to the end user. Keeping those items recorded in Procore meant for the client being able to follow up on the completion even months after us leaving the project. At the end of each project, preparing Owner Manuals at closeout usually meant spending many hours printing and binding information. With Procore, preparing the manuals is now a very simple process as it only takes a couple of clicks to download the records of the project and saving them on a pen-drive. No more wasting paper.,The bidding tool has made it very easy to update information between the contractors participating in the bids we issue. It has also made it more attractive to contractors as they see a more transparent process.,In our country, Spanish is the legal language. In the future, we could use Procore's formats for progress payments, change orders and other documents that require signature as presented by the software, that right now are only in English.,9,Microsoft Project, Adobe Acrobat DC, Microsoft Office 365, AutoCADYou should get it!Procore is being used by our entire organization. We use it on construction projects from start to finish. We use the bidding tool to issue bid invitations to our subs and suppliers and to track their responses. When we start a project, we use the financial tools, the project management tools, the directory, and the daily reports. It is great to have all of those things in one package that is available online or with the app.,Instant collaboration with the field staff and designers. Keeping information organized and formatted in a standard manner. Permanent record keeping.,Uploading sets of specifications has improved but could still use work. It requires a large amount of time after the upload to verify each section is correct. It would be nice to have all of the tools that are online available in the mobile app. The process of preparing potential change orders is clunky because you are required to go to two different modules.,10,Prolog and Sage Estimating,We have definitely benefited from the collaboration abilities of Procore. I have trained our subs to submit their shop drawings and submittals through Procore which has reduced the steps it takes to process them. I am sending RFIs through Procore which again allows me to keep all of the information in one place. When the designer responds, they put the answer right into Procore and nobody has to remember to log it. I also greatly appreciate the daily log functionality. If I am unable to get a report in person, I can always look up what happened on a particular day.,We have saved a very large amount of time which is appreciated because we are a growing business and each are wearing multiple hats. We are nearly paperless and project records all reside in Procore. Communication efficiency has increased greatly.

So we had to manually input their info into Procore making our job a bit harder (since they would not do it). We found that it was just easier to use Procore with the few others that used it and go back to our old ways for all the others.,It actually took us more time. It had very little impact on our business.,Ensure information is accessible and up to date Document job site conditions,3,8,No,I personally cannot - another co-worker was the lead on the Procore software. The experiences I had with procore - training - were great.Info at your fingertips not matter where you are!Used for budget analysis, submittals, seeing the scope of work for contracts and purchase orders, scheduling, RFI's, reports, and change orders. The departments using Procore are project managers and some members of financial. It organizes the company to do all of the above in correlation with each other and allows any other manager the ability to be able to pick up a project if another manager cannot at any given time. It also gives us the ability to see where the project is financially at any given time, tracking submittals and RFI's at a glance.,The ability to have anyone pick up the project at any time, as long as the data is being inputted. The "bugging" of expected information from subs, to architects, to engineering. Gives us financial lookie-loos at any point to make game-time decisions. The ability to track change orders per decisions made, and then roll them into the prime contract.,Sometimes the cloud goes down and we have no access at all. Fewer outages. Price of service is steep. Could reduce the amount of having to do the same thing too many times to get the same result.,9,Microsoft Project,We have benefitted in all aspects. They allow us to communicate everything form the bid budget comments and scope right down to the close out documentations. This is all located in the same location, which makes it easy to get a hold of.

It addresses the historical problem of not having everything consolidated in one place.,User-friendly So many tools, functions and capabilities,We need more flexibility with workflow with clients and folks that don't have Procore of their own (specifically regarding permission access and restrictions) We need different/better ways to report data for our programs, not just projects. We have many projects under a couple of program, and we want them all consolidated and reporting out of the program. Currently, we can only report from individual projects. We need more flexibility with the RFI tool. We need the RFI tool to communicate two ways with the client and with internal employees, but it is currently a cumbersome and "chunky" tool if there are MANY RFI's going back and forth. We want an RFI tool that keeps all RFI's consolidated in one place, like a running list with dates and responses. Would like to be able to created a schedule in MS Project format in Procore.,10,,We have benefited from this because our teams are located around the world.,Consolidated documents in to one place for the entire Engineering Division,Gain visibility into projects Ensure information is accessible and up to date Streamline financial reporting Simplify employee time tracking,6Easy to gather/distribute information, drawings, and production photosWe use Procore to manage meeting minutes, RFIs, material submittals, shop drawing review, architectural set distribution, and record team directory. It is a good tool for recording and distributing changes in the project to all consultants. We communicate with all factories, architects, engineers, and general contractors to utilize Procore to: answer questions they have on the project, inquire for additional information and record for what change orders are warranted.,Tracking changes in project form factory and GC initial bid. Develop RFIs for specific questions on specifications, scope of work and open items. Generate templates for material submittals. Track meeting minutes and distribute to consultants. Record contact information for external consultants.,For modular construction, develop a process to easily keep track of modular shop drawings and revisions. Have flexibility to adjust nomenclature for review process. When viewing emails from Procore, it takes time to understand the purpose of email. Too much unrelated information is provided on email. Wish Procore could auto generate emails to send consultants of due dates. Example, tell modular manufacturer they need to provide a material submittal by x days or they will be behind on material procurement.,8,,Yes, we are constantly reminding new users from our line of work to utilize Procore and its capabilities. Having cloud based access help to distribute states submittal plans, architectural set, shop drawings, material procurement, and photos of the building.

We are able to structure any given job and see the progress of the site, as well as any hurdles or timing issues that need to be addressed. We also utilize Procore as a means to house invoices, contracts, and building documents, so that all the information for a job site is readily accessible. Currently, Procore is accessed by the project managers for each job and puts all the information into a well-organized package that is easy to understand at a glance, which is ever important in this fast-paced business.,Procore is easy to navigate for people with all levels of tech savvy.

Our owners also use the software for viewing submittals, RFIs, tracking payment, etc. on the jobs they are associated with.,Procore has saved an abundance of time in preparing paperwork.

Procore is being used across our organization. It is the sole product that we utilize for project management for our operations department, and it integrates with our accounting software and is used by our accounting department as a backcheck. We have started using it to address quality control/assurance on projects, and it has helped to improve our QA/QC process as an organization. It additionally has been able to unify our processes across the organization, which was a problem prior to our use of the tools.
  • Helps to create submittal logs from specs with less input from PMs.
  • Helps to label and organize uploaded plans and specs without a lot of input from PMs.
  • Tracks changes in commitments (subs and purchase orders).
  • Works with clients to customize.
  • Training.
  • Responsiveness to improvement suggestions from clients.
  • Involves end users in planning for future product rollouts and tool improvements.
  • The mobile app is easy to use.
  • The photos tool needs to be able to link photos across almost all tools from within the tool directly.
Procore is well-suited for any mid to large general contractor, subcontractor, architect or engineer. I have seen it used by smaller companies, and the only issue that I have seen arise in those instances is that some smaller companies do not have the infrastructure built to go through the implementation process.

We use Procore for our entire Project Management needs for construction use. It handles everything from financial budgeting, to cost reports, RFI tracking, submittal tracking, change orders, pay applications, drawings and specification organizations and photo management. It helps keep subcontractors and vendors on the same page with information, as it's used for bidding out projects as well. Does everything for us except handle schedules.
  • Drawing management
  • RFI / Submittal organization
  • Financial reporting
  • Invoicing
  • Interfacing with Architects and Engineers
  • Interfacing with Subcontractors
  • Have not used scheduling feature - appeared that it didn't integrate well with programs we use
Very well suited to handling costs - from financial reports to change orders to sub's and clients, to invoicing. Change order process appears to be a bit cumbersome with the PCCO to PCO. It confuses some clients, so I've skipped the PCCO step and gone straight to PCO. This avoids confusion of numbering with people.

We use Procore for our Project Management. We use all the Procore modules from field tools to financials. Procore addressed the issue of connecting our stakeholders from Architects to Subcontractors and Owners. Procore allows our project teams to more effectively manage their projects. We integrate Procore into our Sage Accounting system allowing two way communication.
  • Procore manages our drawings effectively by always keeping everyone on the latest revision.
  • Procore's punch list tool is very effective at tracking punch list items from initiation to completion.
  • The Change Events tool is very useful in starting the Change order process.
  • The Bidding module does not update subcontractor info automatically like BuildingConnected.
  • Some of the financial integrations can be tricky depending on your work flow.
Procore is great for General contractors who work with many different subs. Procore keeps everyone informed and coordinated. You can also use Procore with Docusign to make it even easier to get important docs approved.

PROCORE: supporting NCM's growth

Score 8 out of 10

Procore was implemented within our organization to increase productivity, reduce time spent on communications, and to ensure the quality of our communications from the sites was excellent all the time. Since its inception, we have expanded it out to our estimating department. It now allows us to send a project out for tender in a very short period of time and to qualified subcontractors who are suitable for the job.
  • Document Control: The power here is how a new set of drawings can be overlaid, uploaded, and disseminated to everyone who needs them within a matter of minutes and to a very detailed standard.
  • Defects Management: The process of defects management is a time consuming and detailed process when moving your project to Practical Completion. This module systematically tracks and communicates defects very efficiently. The WR code system has reduced our administration time and impressed our clients in a big way
  • Quality Assurance: We have been able to upload our ITPs into Procore which are now a standard checklist that site managers must complete at designated hold points along the way. These control measures have helped us maintain our high-quality standard and established a level of consistency across all our sites.
  • Programme: The scheduling component could be a lot better. We still use Microsoft Project as Procore is not a suitable alternative at this stage
  • Subcontractor Progress Claims: Other major Project Management systems integrate a portal for the management of the subcontractors progress claims and other required documents
  • Time Management: We still operate our time management manually. Procore could benefit from a module that tracks forecast completion dates, Contract completion dates, Extension of Time Claims (and approvals), Notices Of Delay. All of these should be at the Head Contract & Subcontract levels.
  • Submittals: This needs some work. When a document is rejected by an approving authority it should jump back to the previous step and be allocated to that person who is responsible.
Suitable for medium to large organizations operating across multiple sites. Unsuitable for small "one man band'" type organizations.

We are using Procore to provide better integration between Project Managers, Field Staff, Administration, and Subcontractors. It does a great job with getting plans out in the field on a timely basis and assisting with field reports, photos, and reminding those involved with its ball-in-court process, etc.
  • The ball-in-court system provides up to date information on where things are in the system and reminding those of deadlines. Far better than a task list!
  • Having the plans online and in the cloud allows everyone to have the most recent plan at their fingertips. Also, the way that red-lines stay with the plan, even with updates, is a great feature.
  • Its ability to archive project related emails, by means of a simple "CC:", is extremely helpful.
  • Integration with accounting could be vastly improved. Procore can create a Schedule of Values and sync that with our Sage 300 CRE (which we converted to because of its integration with Procore). However, even though Procore can produce Subcontractor's requisition, Sage can't import that. So, we still need to enter it into Sage. We likely would not have converted to Sage 300 had we known this.
  • Document production. Though we were under the impression that it would produce documents, upon implementation we learned that it essentially produces a cover page. Document production needs to be done elsewhere. A better description of Procore's ability in this department is that it's a document manager, not a producer.
  • We are a bit unique, but we do not find the Estimate/Budget tool to be of value. We do not budget in great detail, so once it's being bought out we have too much retouching to make it worth our time.
Pros: Photos, plans, ball in the court. Being that this is a cloud-based system, we find that the Procore system is extremely helpful in getting the most up to date information in one place.
Cons: Estimate/budget, integration with Sage 300 CRE, and document production. We don't find the estimate/budget tool useful for our business model. The integration with Sage 300 CRE could be improved to allow subcontractor requisitions to be imported directly to accounting. Further, it would be a huge improvement for Procore to enhance document production. Specifically, we have a custom subcontract with fill-in fields that go with a project. It would be great if Procore could actually produce the document, rather than just manage it.

Procore is being used to manage all of our projects. We use almost every tool available to us in some way shape or form. Procore has solved our billing, purchasing, and field communication issues. One of our biggest problem is submittals. The follow-up and reminder alerts are the key. Daily reports and photos from our men help our PMs stay in tune with what is going on day to day.
  • Customer service is the most helpful tool. Whether it be through the chat or a phone call, the issue is always resolved.
  • Training videos
  • Always adding new tools
  • The change order tool is cumbersome
  • Sometimes the drawings take forever to download
  • The sync between drive and online seems to be delayed
Procore has completely transformed our planning. The commitment tool makes it possible for us to forecast cost in actual time. It also provides us with actual ETAs.The budget tool helps our PMs see the bigger picture and how every purchase can affect the bottom line. It also sends a clear picture of where any mistakes or over buying occur.

We use Procore across the whole organization--all employees have access to the software. We use it to manage almost all of our active construction projects (as a general contractor, we do mostly tenant improvements, as well as some ground-up commercial buildings). In my position as Accounting Assistant, I'm responsible for billing all of our clients (i.e., property owners) and also for remitting payment to all the subcontractors. Both of these functions are done using Procore.
  • Owner billings are simple and easy to do, I can get them done very quickly.
  • Subcontractor invoicing is simplified, as contract amounts and change orders are right there--no guessing or arguing with subs about dollar amounts.
  • Budgets are easy to read and understand for the purposes of coding non-subcontractor invoices (for materials or other services).
  • 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.
Billing our owners is very simple -- we have all different types of clients (large corporations, small companies, individuals) and it really works well for any size/type of owner. Subcontractor billings are great on my end but are sometimes difficult for our very small subcontractors to complete (they'd prefer to just email an invoice directly). Also, there are quite a few tidbits of information one must know in order to "allow" a sub to bill (for example, there must be an open billing period, which must be set up manually each month in each project).

We use Procore across our whole company to manage all our construction projects. We use it on the operations and accounting sides; through the entire workflow. It has helped us manage a ton of jobs as we are growing quickly. It helps us communicate tons of information we have to gather throughout the project and report to our customer. It has streamlined so many of our processes. I use it for accounting-things like tracking change orders and issuing pay apps—and it has helped us capture dollars from change orders and has helped our bill accurately and timely. I save a ton of time by using custom forms Procore helped me create too. We use most tools. Our field people are getting really good with the mobile app and report things daily to the office staff through the program.
  • Customer service is the best. I work with a lot of companies and softwares and Procore has always been the best at being professional and responsive.
  • Constant improvement. They are always gathering our opinion on improvements and then actually implementing it. In 2 years I have seen great improvements
  • Mobile app. Though not perfect, the mobile app puts the tools in the hands of the field people so that they do their job well and get us, office people, the data daily. Most field people use tablets or phones. We use the desktop/web format in the office to manage the program with more detail.
  • Integration. There are a couple of little things that their integrations don't always do requiring some manual entry to our accounting software. It is still a very good integration and always improving but can be limiting at times. We use QuickBooks Desktop.
  • Vendor manager permission. Currently, in order to manage vendors in Procore, you have to have complete access to the entire system as an admin. We really don't like this. I want a vendor manager ability for people to add vendors with being an admin so that my AP department can manage vendors without seeing everything on the project or company. This has really been the only major complaint we have had. Otherwise, their permission structure is amazing and helpful. They are constantly making granular permissions which has helped in other areas but not this one.
I think it is the best out there.

At this time, Procore is being used by our construction administration department only, although we are considering expanding its use to our design teams as well. We use it to document and route our construction management activities in collaboration with the general contractors.
  • Provides transparency regarding who is doing what within each record, via the history tab.
  • Automates notifications and routing of submittals and RFIs via the workflow tool.
  • Better control of emails; while we use the granular email options within each tool that we use, we are still in the process of refining that due to user feedback regarding excessive emails.
  • The format of emails sent is difficult to comprehend quickly. Text formatting, placement, and clarity regarding what is actually being conveyed need improvement. Emails need to be more accurate; for example, when a revised document is being sent via email, the email itself should include the revision number. And when a submittal is assigned to someone for review, the email should show who actually assigned it to them, not just the submitter name, which is misleading. And those that are merely copied on the email should not receive an email saying it has been assigned to them.
  • Submittals versus submittal packages is a bit unwieldy still and does not conform to how many of us in the industry are accustomed to receiving, reviewing and returning submittals. Bulk actions for multiple submittal items in one package would be nice.
  • Allowing us to re-number meeting agenda items would be great. Now, if we make a mistake when creating an agenda and need to delete or move an item, it does not properly re-number the items.
  • Including the approver/reviewer's due date for submittals in the email they receive, rather than the final due date, would be huge. We often have multiple reviewer/approvers on submittals, and they need to know when we need it back from them, not when we are required to return to the contractor.
  • An awareness of the fact that not all users are using Procore all day, every day. Many A/E consultants are only accessing the program when they need to retrieve an item or respond to an item.
  • Provide more granular permissions. Allow me to allow a standard level user to create an open RFI. Allow me to allow a standard level user to do other tasks that are an important function of their work while maintaining control of the tools and functions that are not. This comes back to recognizing that not all users are general contractors, receiving work from their subcontractors and that the way we work in Procore is different than the way a GC does.
We like the automation, ease, and transparency Procore provides in performing our construction administration activities. We have had to create customizations and workarounds for some tasks, mainly because we are an A/E firm using the program with general contractors that have similar but different needs than those of a GC. I believe that as a GC, the project financials would be robust and quite useful, but for us, it is difficult to navigate and use because we are not performing the same tasks and functions on the projects as a contractor would, and we do not have the ability to turn off the more detailed financial functions.

We are a General Contractor that has been using Procore for almost 3 years now to manage various construction projects. Procore is used for our production scheduling, drawings documentation and management, RFI's, Submittals, Subcontracts, Safety documentation, and Financials. We have just completed our first project since implementing Procore, it is a 381 unit Apartment complex, and it has been very beneficial in its reliability, portability, and gained efficiencies we have realized since implementing this application, and also demanding that our subcontractors also use Procore for the access of our project information. There are many other modules/capabilities that Procore offers, but we have not yet taken advantage of those opportunities, but plan on investigating them as time allows, to see if they will help our company in further raising the bar for us.
  • Procore always provides the "current" drawing when requested, but also allows for immediate access to down-revision versions if needed. So gone are the days of outdated drawings in the field and carrying around pounds of dirty, unreadable paper drawings!
  • Procore's portability and access by any device that has web access is invaluable, regardless whether in the office, on the job site, or anywhere, so long as you have connectivity to the web you can get to the information you need.
  • Procore is very flexible in being able for our company defined "Procore Admin" to define what kinds of visibility and permissions users may have within their Procore access.
  • It would be nice when creating a new user, to be able to simply "copy" the profile of an existing user to create the new user's profile, but before "finalizing" the profile to simply edit those fields which are unique to the new user being created, such as the name, phone number and e-mail address, as this would be a big time saver. This would be similar to the "Copy Daily Log" functionality, which helps greatly.
Procore is extremely well suited for the Construction field and its ability to create, retain, display, and access data content. It is a wonderful collaboration tool, and I can't imagine my job without it.

We specifically use Procore in our Data Center group, which specializes in assessment/design/build of mission-critical facilities. Procore acts as the sole source of information around design, specifications, RFI's and submittals. Procore helps us to streamline the flow of information and ensure all parties are working from the most current and relevant information.
  • Submittals: We really like the workflow functionality here, which allows us to assign and easily track where the ball is and who is responsible. It also gives us a repository for information that has proved invaluable - both during the project and following completion.
  • Drawings: The ability to upload drawings and share across all trades, with version history, is extremely helpful. Assures all trades are working from the same drawings, and that the drawings are the most current revision.
  • RFIs: This gives us a place to track questions on design, field changes, issues, etc. It is also a good tool for managing these changes and ensuring they get back into the design drawings throughout the project so that the as-builts are up to date.
  • We use ConnectWise for project managemenet, and all of our financial information needs to be tracked through this software. Due to this, we do not utilize the financial component of Procore. We would love to see a CW integration, so that this module would be useful for us.
  • Lien Waiver tracking: We tried to create a custom tab for this, but it is clunky. Lien Waivers are an important component of our process and we would appreciate a better way to track them.
  • Resource Management: Scheduling and task management is lacking in the Procore tool. We've yet to find the right product that solves the issue of tracking to milestone dates for major deliverables, associated resources, and a comprehensive resource scheduling tool that overlays all projects - showing where the collisions are.
Procore does very well in the design and construction space. It excels with information management between trades and collection of pertinent project documentation. We've found limited use for it in our assessment engagements, where the scope of work is more conceptual and the project team consists of only our internal resources.

Procore: Constructing a more efficient way to manage your project!

We use Procore for most aspects of bidding and project management. All construction/pre-construction teams use Procore. Procore has given us the ability to work more closely with our subcontractors and clients. Having one platform for submittals, pay apps, drawings, etc. is a major advantage.
  • Subcontractor pay applications: Standardizes format, submission time frame and reduces errors. Also prevents subcontractors from billing change orders that have not been approved.
  • Incidents Tool: Allows superintendents to quickly document issues and forward the information to the appropriate parties immediately. Records like this are invaluable for dispute resolution.
  • Drawings Tool: Allows us to maintain the most current set of drawings while recording the change progression of each drawing. Our subcontractors and clients always have access to the current drawings so this limits confusion. Procore also allows us to easily send updated drawing links to our subcontractors for pricing and review.
  • Bidding: I've noticed improvements but more needs to be done (choosing trades to invite, recording notes). Would especially like to see a vendor database that is managed by the individual vendors.
  • Directory: Need more robust search features. It would be nice to be able to print distribution lists.
  • Daily Logs: It should be easier to search and view daily reports and to print multiple reports.
Having subcontractors enter pay applications in Procore has been a major success for our company. We also think the drawing, submittal, commitment, RFI, daily log tools are highly effective. We're not as impressed with the budget and field productivity tools. Procore does not interact with our accounting software.

ProCore is a best in class project management software that integrates with just about EVERYTHING

Procore is being used across our whole organization as not only a project management tool, but also as a tool for communicating financial information on projects to our accounting department. We use Procore because not only is it able to easily address our project management needs in a user-friendly and intuitive way compared to other products, it also "talks" to our accounting software, which allows us to have real-time information in both areas. It effectively connects all areas of our business together and gives us an easy method to ensure that everyone is using the same methods for getting their work accomplished.
  • Procore integrates with other software platforms exceedingly well. They are constantly adding new integration options, and do so in order to allow their users to continue to use other interfaces that may do something Procore cannot, or cannot do well while integrating the information into Procore allowing it to remain the "one-stop shop" for all project information.
  • Procore does a great job with customer service. They have multiple avenues for customer assistance including phone and chat and are one of the best companies I have dealt with in this regard bar none.
  • Procore does a great job of really quickly integrating user suggestions into their program. Users can tell Procore what would help them that doesn't currently exist, and unlike other platforms, they will actually integrate these suggestions.
  • I don't think that Procore has a lot to improve, with the exception of rolling out their Viewpoint Integration. It has kind of come in "pieces" which has had the advantage of giving users a chance to get used to the functionality, but I would have preferred all options to be available at once.
Procore is very well suited for use by small, medium and large general contractors. It helps with the management of large projects and projects with large teams. Because the company is charged by volume and not user numbers, this allows all team members to use it to stay involved. It might work for subcontractors as well, but I think that its main functionality works well for GCs and possibly architects.

Procore is being used as a project management software to track our projects from start to finish, including contract, commitments, change orders and the like. We send out bid invites to our subcontractors, follow a timeline, upload documents and drawings and maintain our communication history. We use the app on site so our foreman can keep things up to date in real-time.
  • Commitments Tracking
  • Project History
  • Drawing Management
  • Uploading large quantities of contacts into the address book
  • Generate a more user-friendly custom reporting
  • Additional features for the Procore phone app
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.

Procore is the tool we use for the control of all our projects. We are a Construction Management/Consulting firm. Our role is always as either the project owner's representative or supervision.
In all the projects we are hired to manage, we bring Procore as a "must use" tool for all the contractors/subcontractors that are brought into the project.
It is used to keep all our documentation, as well as keeping track of the plans and financials of each project.
  • Keeping track of current drawings and changes. Particularly in large projects, this is extremely helpful as you can get lost between revisions.
  • Manage Punch Lists. Nobody can escape from pending items belonging to them. I've had contractors calling me asking to get rid of the reminder emails. I just tell them, "it's simple...complete the item and document it." Otherwise, it won't go away.
  • Manage RFI's and Submittals.
  • Keep your insurance and bonds updated. If you set your valid dates, the reminders will help you keep your policies updated.
  • Searching for related items across tools. A lot of times during a project, an RFI or a Drawing Revision will trigger a submittal, a change request, change order, etc. A tool or field selector that lets you tie items to others would be very useful in searching for the specific history or timeline of an even. Perhaps using keywords and then allowing for searches of items having that keyword.
  • An Observation or Inspection can become a Punch List item if not attended.
  • Managing the use of this software between colleagues could be improved if the system would allow searching for the logins of a particular user in spans of more than 7 days. In dispute resolution, to make a point of whether a user has been using the tool as requested, it becomes hard to gather the necessary information because you have to go on a week-by-week basis. On a typical construction project going on for 12, 18 or 24 months, this becomes a tedious task that can't be assigned to lower administrative levels, since it can only be performed by people having administrative rights, who are typically high-level managers, whose time is very expensive.
For large projects with huge sets of drawings, the software is awesome. It allows all parties involved to keep close contact with all necessary issues. For small projects like renovations, TI's, and projects where the contractor is on the move a lot, is not that versatile.
Of course, if the project is in a remote area with no internet access, Procore cannot be used.

Procore is being used by our entire organization. We use it on construction projects from start to finish. We use the bidding tool to issue bid invitations to our subs and suppliers and to track their responses. When we start a project, we use the financial tools, the project management tools, the directory, and the daily reports. It is great to have all of those things in one package that is available online or with the app.
  • Instant collaboration with the field staff and designers.
  • Keeping information organized and formatted in a standard manner.
  • Permanent record keeping.
  • Uploading sets of specifications has improved but could still use work. It requires a large amount of time after the upload to verify each section is correct.
  • It would be nice to have all of the tools that are online available in the mobile app.
  • The process of preparing potential change orders is clunky because you are required to go to two different modules.
Procore is particularly well suited for larger projects. It condenses the project information in a way that helps prevent confusion with subs and suppliers and is a one-stop place to get the information you need. On smaller projects, the software is sometimes just too large. There are so many things that it can do, but on a small project, it is sometimes easier to just use less modern methods for project management.

Procore was being used to organize project documents such as subcontract agreements, purchase orders, change orders, etc.
  • Connects subs and vendors in real time with the project activity.
  • It's somewhat hard to upload past project info if you have started Procore in the middle of a project.
In my experience, which I realize is limited, Procore is good. I believe that if our company had used Procore to its full potential we may have enjoyed it. There is a learning curve, but once you see how all the parts of Procore connect together it is a nice product. I have used three other construction-based software systems and none of them connect the whole project together the way I believe Procore would have if we had bought the whole package. It IS expensive and the expense was a major factor in why we did not buy it. The other factor was timing. We had just bought—about 8 months previously—QuickBooks Enterprise. I realize there is not a great comparison between the two systems but we were already very familiar with QB and its set up. Later, when Procore was introduced, we MAY have gone for the whole package but it is a Titanic-ish event to change software, so it was not heavily considered.

Used for budget analysis, submittals, seeing the scope of work for contracts and purchase orders, scheduling, RFI's, reports, and change orders. The departments using Procore are project managers and some members of financial.
It organizes the company to do all of the above in correlation with each other and allows any other manager the ability to be able to pick up a project if another manager cannot at any given time. It also gives us the ability to see where the project is financially at any given time, tracking submittals and RFI's at a glance.
  • The ability to have anyone pick up the project at any time, as long as the data is being inputted.
  • The "bugging" of expected information from subs, to architects, to engineering.
  • Gives us financial lookie-loos at any point to make game-time decisions.
  • The ability to track change orders per decisions made, and then roll them into the prime contract.
  • Sometimes the cloud goes down and we have no access at all. Fewer outages.
  • Price of service is steep.
  • Could reduce the amount of having to do the same thing too many times to get the same result.
Suited for project management of any type of contract that involves the hiring of services from others to perform the work from my company. Helps with everything from the financials, to the submittals of contracts, to the watching and balancing of the budget to ensure that the project is finished on time, on budget, and most importantly, on schedule.

Procore is being used primarily for document control and time keeping by our A&E division. It addresses the historical problem of not having everything consolidated in one place.
  • User-friendly
  • So many tools, functions and capabilities
  • We need more flexibility with workflow with clients and folks that don't have Procore of their own (specifically regarding permission access and restrictions)
  • We need different/better ways to report data for our programs, not just projects. We have many projects under a couple of program, and we want them all consolidated and reporting out of the program. Currently, we can only report from individual projects.
  • We need more flexibility with the RFI tool. We need the RFI tool to communicate two ways with the client and with internal employees, but it is currently a cumbersome and "chunky" tool if there are MANY RFI's going back and forth. We want an RFI tool that keeps all RFI's consolidated in one place, like a running list with dates and responses.
  • Would like to be able to created a schedule in MS Project format in Procore.
Procore seems to be well suited for many areas because of the flexibility that you have created within the system, and with continuous improvement measures that you make.

We use Procore to manage meeting minutes, RFIs, material submittals, shop drawing review, architectural set distribution, and record team directory. It is a good tool for recording and distributing changes in the project to all consultants. We communicate with all factories, architects, engineers, and general contractors to utilize Procore to: answer questions they have on the project, inquire for additional information and record for what change orders are warranted.
  • Tracking changes in project form factory and GC initial bid.
  • Develop RFIs for specific questions on specifications, scope of work and open items.
  • Generate templates for material submittals.
  • Track meeting minutes and distribute to consultants.
  • Record contact information for external consultants.
  • For modular construction, develop a process to easily keep track of modular shop drawings and revisions.
  • Have flexibility to adjust nomenclature for review process.
  • When viewing emails from Procore, it takes time to understand the purpose of email. Too much unrelated information is provided on email.
  • Wish Procore could auto generate emails to send consultants of due dates. Example, tell modular manufacturer they need to provide a material submittal by x days or they will be behind on material procurement.
In modular construction, the modular shop drawing review process has an issue in nomenclature and review. Architects and engineers need to review shop drawings to see if they match design intent for factories to build off of. We use the submittal tool to do the shop drawing review. The submittal tool marks reviewed drawings as approved, but it needs to be reviewed. Consultants will not take liability on accuracy of shop drawings to their city and state package. They would rather mark shop drawings as "reviewed by consultants" and if the factory finds discrepancies, they can issue an RFI to get clarification. Also it is messy to keep track of and keep organized. As a PM I have to spend a few hours a day to keep track of each shop drawing state and red lines. It would be nice for Procore to generate a report list.

  • It is a great place to do daily reports with photos

Procore Drive allows us to organize and maintain multiple jobs at once. We are able to structure any given job and see the progress of the site, as well as any hurdles or timing issues that need to be addressed. We also utilize Procore as a means to house invoices, contracts, and building documents, so that all the information for a job site is readily accessible. Currently, Procore is accessed by the project managers for each job and puts all the information into a well-organized package that is easy to understand at a glance, which is ever important in this fast-paced business.
  • Procore is easy to navigate for people with all levels of tech savvy.
  • The organization is well laid out, and folders and drop downs are presented in a structured, easy to read format.
  • There have been no issues with lag, or website errors, the technology is smooth and user-friendly.
  • The interface allows all the documents needed for a job, all housed in the same place to streamline document searches.
  • Allow past meeting minutes to be edited. (for spelling errors and the like).
  • Allow users to change the colors Procore to suit taste.
Procore is well suited for companies with multiple projects, or when a lot of documents are needed for the specific job. It also compliments companies that have weekly meetings, and keep track of minutes. Procore is appropriate as an organizational tool and replaces Dropbox and cluttered folders and files on a desktop. Every company can benefit from this product.

Procore is used by our operations department primarily. It used to manage the RFI and submittal process, as well as keeping up to date plans and specs for our field staff. The software allows us to eliminate discrepancies between the office and the field, and it would say that is the main problem that it addresses.
  • Submittal process
  • RFI process
  • Contract document management
  • The distribution features could work better.
  • The inspection forms could be easier to create templates of and fill out.
  • Action items in meeting minutes need to be easier to organize.
Procore is very well suited for commercial construction companies who utilize project teams consisting of both field and office staff. Like I've said previously it is great for being able to share up to date information not only with the internal team but the external team as well. Procore would be less appropriate if only being used for a file transfer software.

Mainly used in a construction management role, change order control. It addresses the issue of coordination with trade/customers/consultants into one place.
  • Accountability to all stakeholders for tasks with important timelines and completion dates.
  • Great tool for clients to track the progress of the project and identify potential roadblocks.
  • The moving from a change event to a change order is not very user-friendly or intuitive. The menus tend to be a bit unwieldy and sometimes hard to find.
Great for large projects with many stakeholders. It allows everyone to access their particular area of concern/involvement and can easily highlight areas that are potentially going off the rails in terms of timelines and or cost overruns. Accountability is the key to the whole process as it creates a no excuse scenario for everyone involved.
