Overall Satisfaction with Procore

It's a very powerful program, a lot to learn but in the end, we can do things faster. The mobile site is very intuitive much better than others. Learning to navigate Procore took some time but was far easier than other programs.
At Century Exteriors Inc. We use Procore to manage and organize our HR, safety, management, and financials for projects. We primarily use it for project management and safety, as we have grown and become more comfortable with it we have started to use it for other areas such as quality control, HR, and financials over projects. We find Procore covers most PM daily tasks and is simple to use in the field from their app. This is where it counts, field and office. Safety, HR, and quality control are among some of the items that get left behind, having them in an app form helps our workers remember these items needing to be completed. Something I wish they had: Clone inspections and observations Add multiple signatures to inspections and observations. Safety isn't just about filling a form out, we need to legally have workers sign off. We've made them aware of the hazards and safety protocols so we need workers confirmation they have received these. Procore hasn't been that user-friendly to the subcontractor side of construction. We're a subcontractor with occasional contracting. We need something a bit more streamlined or simplified.
  • Document control - one place for everything. Just wish we could have all files move to new projects created with the project template.
  • Employee/contact Log - everyone's tickets and certifications, letters can be kept in one place listed per company. Just wish we could track expiries outdated training tickets or expired safety equipment or vehicle/equipment inspections
  • Project Management - allows many employees to participate in a single project with a level of permissions and always has the latest revisions.
  • I've listed some already but - inspection forms sign and clone
  • Hidden % markup for change orders
  • Track and extract all inspections for selected dates and export full form details for safety submissions
  • Allow files to transfer from folder list from the project template. We have many forms that need to be added to every project
Sitedocs is a safety management software. Does it well, Procore just had everything in one app. Although there were many QC HR and safety features that are very missed since switching. The ability to all in one spot outweighs but hoping we will start to see these other features added.

Esub, just not as powerful as Procore. Only missing being able to have hidden % markup on change orders to hide your true cost for invoice breakdowns
We have. Biggest is the office to field and multiple PM's working on a single project. Collecting site information instantly has made us the ones always on top of the situation.
  • Saved time and money on document control and record keeping
  • Quicker field office response, on top of things faster
  • Photo documentation and mountains of records have won extras and stopped credits
  • 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
Timecards
Change orders
RFIs
Inspections
Drawings

We rely on many of the features but the ones above would be the most common used. The directory is useful for a company phone book/contact organization.
Good for medium to large construction companies, small construction companies need a smaller simpler version as they often are in the office while they're working in the field. They don't have time to do the fine detail of larger company office workforce
