Overall Satisfaction with Procore

I use Procore to manage plans & specifications. I really like the way you can manage revised plans with different revisions. We also use Procore in calling, change events, mark-ups, RFIs, submittals, commitments, observations, and punch lists. The RFI module is great. We use it in pre-construction as well as in construction. We also use Procore in closeout and post-construction. The photos module is a great tool as well.
  • We use the drawings tool to manage our drawings. It keeps them organized and gives a detailed trail of revisions.
  • We use the specifications tool to manage our specifications. It keeps them organized and gives a detailed trail of revisions.
  • We use the RFI tool to manage our RFIs. It keeps a good record of all the RFIs throughout the project and the architect can respond within ProCore to answer the RFIs.
  • I would like to see some more development in the Bidding module. It needs to be more robust with bid tabulations from subs and better tracking on who will be submitting proposals. We currently use a different system for bid management.
  • I would like to be able to add more than one set of specifications.
  • The tasks module needs more functionality. We currently use a different system for our task management. It would be nice to be able to have it all in Procore.
  • Save time in managing plans.
  • Saves time in managing specifications.
  • Great for populating specification and drawing log for contracts and subcontracts.
  • A tool that the field employees actually use.
SmartBid: Makes it easier to get documents in SmartBid.
Spectrum: We use it to import our budget to Spectrum. It seems that it doesn't keep real-time budget adjustments and we have to re-sync.
Teams: We have it integrated with Teams and use it when communicating with the field.
I know the field uses the Daily Logs module. But, I don't use it. I am the estimator and rarely have a need for it. But I know the project managers love it. They can get daily logs from the field without having to get them in an email or handwritten.
It has been very helpful in our employee's ability to self-train. They can use the training videos in ProCore and learn a lot without having to take up someone else time teaching them.
This is the only project management software we have used. We used Spectrum in the past as our project management tool. But, it is really a financial tool.
I like the mobile app for tablets is working great for accessing what you need while in the field. The photos tool is great how you can tag where the picture was taken. I would like to be able to overlay drawing on the PC like you can on the tablet. ProCore support is great. It's great the way it captures historical data.
