Overall Satisfaction with Procore
I use Procore for my daily coordination with my General Contractor. I'm finishing up a high rise building which was coordinated through Procore for the last 3 years. I get submittal and RFI emails notifying me of outstanding questions the contractor has. Submittals are neatly organized by Spec Sections and can be filtered in various ways to find things. The UI can be intimating at first but you get used to it pretty quickly. If you need to forward and/or reassign the submittal to another party the functionality is built into the software. RFI's are set up in a similar manner which makes it easy to transition back and forth between these and submittals. All Drawings the project may have are archived online and can be easily accessed. What's nice is that Procore catalogs all iterations of a drawing which allows seamless access to see the history of changes. All the functionality talked about here can be accessed through the main software, the online site, and the app on iOS or Android.
- Document management.
- RFI and submittal coordination.
- Punch lists and observations.
- Specification management.
- More seamless UI.
- Better search functionality.
- Warnings about software changes ahead of time.
- The integration of drawings, submittals, and RFIs reduces wasted time looking for things.
- Having the Procure database accessible on my iPad is incredibly handy while in the field.
- Having records of past RFIs And Submittals allow for better clarifications with issues that may pop up.
Having complete integration of documents and communications makes construction management really convenient. Whenever I have a meeting with my general contractor and their subs, we easily bring up drawings and other documents for a pretty seamless experience. There's no need for time wasted looking for documents or drawings on your computer which cuts down time.

Procore is great for construction project management. It's tailored specifically for contractors and design professionals. A owner of a project can also be integrated into the software but might have trouble navigating around. While Procore can be used for other non construction projects you'd only be able to use only a fraction of the capability of the software and should probably use sometime more simple.
