Overall Satisfaction with Procore

It is used across the whole organization. It keeps everyone on the "same page" from the field to project management to AR/AP. It makes information from the field (photos and daily logs) easily recorded and sent to the office. Our financials are kept up to date in real time as well.
  • Photos and daily logs shared from the field to the office are so easy and useful
  • The change events tool does a great job of documenting and organizing all change orders and the impact it has on the budget.
  • The project directory is a great tool especially on the mobile app. Having access to this directory in Procore without having to add the contacts to your own phone is a big help.
  • While we get great value internally, using Procore as a communication tool with our partners (owners/architects) has been disappointing. The e-mails are confusing and come across as impersonal.
  • The custom reporting needs a lot of work. We should also be able to run reports on our "inactive" projects to get a better insight to company history.
  • The Sage integration is limited. A full integration across all tools (invoices, payments, JC transactions) would make it much for valuable.
  • PRICING! Our rates have been raised significantly since we started with them. Be sure to iron our EVERY detail with them with your first contract signing
This has been a big disappointment with Procore for us. While we have our subcontractors on board for billing - Procore needs to improve the functionality here to make it really useful.

Owners and architects all have their own software packages and most do not want to take the time to learn another. Despite our efforts, most prefer to have e-mails sent to them (with pdfs generated from Procore). We have had a handful of architects that approve submittals, and some owners that log in to see photos. The ones that make the effort have given some positive feedback
  • Implementation took a lot longer than we expected and was initially very disruptive to our business
  • Quick access to historic daily logs has been a tremendous time saver when negotiating change orders with owners and or subcontractors.
  • The project documentation really makes it easier / faster to go back and review what happened and why.
  • Gain visibility into projects
  • Ensure information is accessible and up to date
  • Document job site conditions
  • Streamline financial reporting
  • Improve forecast accuracy
Change Events, Budget, Daily Log and Photos combined paint a great picture of where the project stands.

Due dates on the Submittals and RFIs allow the team to stay on top of upcoming delays.

I don't think Procore takes any longer than a competing product, but integrating is an enormous task that took well over year.

Going from excel sheets to a software package really was frustrating for a lot of our employees. It changed all of the daily tasks completely without them seeing the immediate value.

Our field guys took took to the mobile app way faster than the office staff
Procore is great to create uniformity and standard operating procedures across a company. All internal members can find the information in one place. The more parts of it we use, the more ingrained in the company culture it gets, making it more valuable.

It's extremely difficult to get our owners and architects on board. It's just too vast of a software that requires training that they do not seem to want to participate in.
