Overall Satisfaction with Procore
I work for a general contractor and not a specialty contractor. I definitely will not recommend a specialty/subcontractor purchase Procore because it purchased and managed by GC's, which subcontractors need to use to interface with the GC. As a GC, it is an all-in-one solution to manage almost every aspect for the construction process.
- Financials (Budgets, Subcontractors/Commitments).
- Documentation Management (RFI's, Submittals, Observations).
- Continuous Upgrades, although it could be a bit slow.
- It's an all-in-one solution, so it is a little behind in focusing on specific aspects of the processes. For example, the change order process is a little convoluted and locations assignments could use some improvement.
- Procore recognizes that there are flaws, but they are continually updating it and adding features. I just wish they'd do it faster.
- It hasn't completely happened yet, but Procore could eliminate the need for paper plans/documents
- Absolutely, Procore increases the efficiency of communication between AEC trades.
Timberscan Sage is ERP linked. I haven't dealt with the integration aspect on Procore yet, but it'll be really helpful if they integrate well so that the budget and everything could be handled through Procore so create projections and track pending changes right in the budget.
I do not enter daily logs because that's the superintendent's job. It definitely helps when they do enter the logs because it becomes searchable and is readily available on the cloud.
It's a mixed bag because there are people who are readily adapting to new software and those who want to stick with paper. If everybody is ready to adopt, then Procore is the way to go- it's easy to use and could do everything.
I can't compare Procore to most other construction software because they tend to focus more on one specific module (e.g. PlanGrid is only on drawing, RFI, and submittal management). I heard there's another company that is trying to build something like Procore that incorporates everything, but I don't remember what it's called and I've never used it.
Do you think Procore delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with Procore's feature set?
Did Procore live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of Procore go as expected?
I wasn't involved with the implementation phase
Would you buy Procore again?
Procore excels in that it's an all-in-one solution, so I don't have to jump to different software to handle different aspects of a project. This creates good links between different modules (RFI's tie into Change Events to handle the financial aspects, observations could be made in the field to tie into Change Events, etc.).

- It's an all-in one construction software compared to others that focus on only one aspect.
- Procore is continually expanding and I believe other software should integrate with Procore to make it easier on people in the industry in general.
Procore is serving as a platform for construction communication and tracking like Windows10 or MacOS to a computer.
