Overall Satisfaction with Procore

It is used across the business on projects where the users are familiar with Procore and how to administer it. We use it for drawing management only.
  • Makes drawing management a lot easier as we don't have to mail out drawings.
  • Subcontractors can log on and view the most up to date drawings.
  • Older revisions are easily available to review.
  • Provides live drawing comments and distributes to all the parties required.
  • The program is a little too 'Americanised' for British construction terminology. For example, we don't use 'punch lists'. we call them snag lists.
  • It needs to be adapted to accept company forms for document management, at the moment you are forced to use the templates which means that we are not compliant with company standard documents.
  • The software that 'reads' the drawing revisions isn't able to work outnumbered revisions and if the box is empty it doesn't link it to any other drawings with the same title.
Works more effectively with distribution.
The unlimited user licenses are very handy when the same users may need access across a few projects on Procore. Most of the site supervisors need access in order to view the drawings. If these were tied to limits it would reduce how Procore could be used on site.
  • saved time
  • increased efficiency
  • faster sharing of information
  • Ensure information is accessible and up to date
The live drawings being available and the ability to backcheck against old revisions.
Because it doesn't cater to company documents and makes you use the templates which makes us noncompliant with document control within the company.
The reasons I stated in my previous answers are the pros and cons of Procore.
