Overall Satisfaction with Procore

We use Procore for managing construction for public education projects, specifically the drawings, specs, submittals, RFIs, photos, documents, punch list, and change orders tools. Procore helps us to provide a single source of accurate, up-to-date information for various project partners. It also provides very detailed record-keeping data that is effortless and stashed away in the background, but there if you ever need it.
  • Mobile app for phones and tablets is highly valuable for quickly accessing the latest info from the field.
  • Capturing photos and tagging locations on drawings for various issue types is easily accessible and transparent.
  • Fine-tuning of permission and access is available for any tool or any type of project partner.
  • Procore's core project mgmt tools are not 100% fine-tuned. They are very slow to progress while Procore is trying to tackle market share in other related markets. The core tools seem to be [a] low priority for further development, for this reason, I suspect.
  • The email notifications are way too frequent and often do not have preference adjustments. They become white noise and are often ignored for this reason...not good for alerting project partners to important items on Procore.
  • It has not development reliable quantity takeoff tools. Most basic.
  • Saved time accessing accurate data.
  • Saved printing costs with mobile app access for field use.
  • Easy, quick uploading of photos from the field.
  • Ample cloud storage space.
No integrations used.
[The] speed of daily logs is about the same but automatically formatted which saves some time.
Procore seems to invest the most money into [its] product development, which in turn has made it the leader in its field and the best possible tool available. Other tools have underdeveloped features or capabilities that are not accurately advertised and are not as user-friendly as they are made out to be...Procore has some of that, too, but it is still in the lead
Procore is best suited for larger construction projects with a lot of communications, project partners, and documents. I wouldn't recommend it for smaller projects that doesn't demand as much collaboration or documentation. The more data on a project, the more effective and efficient Procore becomes. It is too expensive a tool for very small businesses to bother adjusting to at this time.
