Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- Construction Project Management – Procore is an easy-to-use construction PM software that helps users manage multiple projects, in one place. With project visibility, collaboration, and unlimited seat licenses, all team members are kept in the loop, and the project is kept up-to-date, from coordination to completion. The team can access all the information they need with real time updates and instantaneous tracking. As a drawing-centric application, it puts everything on the current drawing set, so everyone has what they need when they need it. The Design Coordination feature collects all issues in one place, so involved teams can solve problems faster.
- Quality and Safety Tools – The construction management software enables teams to collect data just by doing their jobs every day. Collected data can then be used to mitigate risk, track performance, and improve quality and safety processes. For example, the Daily Log captures everything the user needs to report to the office. It automatically tracks weather conditions, archive data for later use, log manpower hours, and more. The Forms tool allows users to meet the format needs and expectations of other stakeholders and collaborators. The Incidents tool can digitally capture and help manage incidents accurately, such as with injury and near-miss records, and more. Other features include Inspections, Observations, Photos, and Schedule.
- Construction Financials, Field Productivity, App Marketplace, and more – Procore has construction financials features that enable project teams to manage costs in real time, while giving executives visibility into their company’s health at any given time. Users can create change events directly on their mobile device while in the field. Other stakeholders in the office can see the impact and take immediate action to minimize cost exposures. It integrates with accounting solutions, and includes other features such as budget, contract management, cost management, invoicing, and more. It also has labor productivity tracking in real time, bulk time entry for individuals or an entire crew, an approval process for simplified payroll, and more.
