Overall Satisfaction with Procore

The tool is used to administer design and construction projects. Procore is the subcontractor facing tool used to distribute and share contract documents and communicate scheduling and design directives.

Pros

  • Accountability and tracking of RFIs.
  • Distribution of design and construction documents.
  • Granularity in how different users are able to interact with the system and view information.

Cons

  • Administration of meetings and minutes.
  • Import tools.
  • Scheduling.
Procore is better oriented to users both in the office and the field than other products used.
Documents are quickly distributed from design professionals to the field with an indication of the latest release. Excuses for working off of outdated drawings should be an issue of the past.
  • Paper copies of drawings are no longer distributed. Contractors are responsible for managing their own digital versions of drawings.
  • All contractors are in the loop when design directives alter construction on the site.
  • Ensure information is accessible and up to date
  • Document job site conditions
Latest release of drawings and specifications is extremely important to keep contractors up to date.
Scheduling integration has yet to hit the mark.
Excellent subcontractor facing tool. Good for open book projects with the client.
