Great PM tool that funnels all

2018-09-04

Pros

Submittals and centralized hour tracking. Great for collaborating with people both inside and outside of my company.

Needs to include better photo tracking functionality that works similar to plangrid. Need better interactive tutorials.

Best out There

2018-06-21

Pros

Replaces things like Plangrid, BIM360, Pype, etc.

Cons

It can be pricey and I don't like that you cannot stamp a submittal from within the software. You must export, stamp and reupload. As stamping submittals is a very common requirement, it's odd this doesn't exist.

Amazing and porwerful product

2016-09-26

Pros

100% Full Project Management. No better way to address all the projects needs in 1 location. We send all construction documents through Procore making it easier to locate anytime.

Cons

I like PlanGrid so much more, but Procore has recently stepped up their game!

We are a concrete and drain company that serves as both a Developer and a general contractor. We use procore to keep our field, office, owners and subcontractors communicating and having up to date documents on a daily basis. I don't know what we would do without it.

A great Program for Large Commercial Projects

2018-02-15

I purchased this software as a step up from Plangrid because I needed more options to track our progress and project issues.

Pros

Easy to use. Lots of options for tracking the project. A great resource for sending the project documents to your field employees.

Cons

This is not an inexpensive program so if you are on a tight budget then this might not be a good fit for you.

Drawing uploading could be better

2016-03-09

Pros

That everything is in one place and collaboration with other contractors is easy

Just one of the many project management software available

2016-11-07

We use one of the other programs as well as eNTERFACE (for Daily Reports), PlanGrid (for drawings), ShareFile (for sharing documents), Outlook, AIA Contract Documents, DocuSign (for e-signatures) and a handful of others just to manage a job.

Pros

1. Comprehensive package. Allows for integration with out accounting, but we haven't opted to go that route yet. Can eliminate many of the other programs we use, but not all. 2. Can limit user access, so I can give everyone access to just what they need. 3. Lots of online training available and assistance from the very start. 4. Fairly easy to use once you know what you are doing. 5. Accessible from any internet-accessible device. 6. Constantly talking about improvement. I haven't been through a major upgrade yet, but they seem to take into account what the contractor needs.

Cons

1. Modules aren't consistent. For example, submittals allow me to edit on behalf of someone. RFIs do not. I've seen this in other products where one tab or module works one way and the other tab is set up different. I expected more consistency between the modules, submittals and RFIs especially. 2. No separate module for ASIs. They can be linked to drawings and markups, but there's no ASI log that people can view. I can save the ASIs in a folder in the online documents, but the user has to go search for them. I can send email notices out to subs, but if a new sub comes on board, they will not have the emails. 3. I cannot scroll through RFIs easily. In Sage I can move easily from one RFI to the next if I'm searching for something particular. In Procore, I have to open an RFI, close it and go back to the log and open the next RFI. One of the things I wanted to do was cut down on the number of steps it took to get to the data I needed. Procore adds steps in this case. Same for Submittals. I have to open/close/open the next. 4. The Save or Close buttons are often way down at the bottom of a window. If I have to go in, enter just a few pieces of info at the top of the submittal or RFI, I then have to scroll all the way to the bottom. Some companies put a Save at the top and bottom for that reason. 5. Was told I could use my iPad/iPhone but the apps are only for information. I cannot add to the contacts/directory unless I login through Safari. 6. So much data on the screen that sometimes the key pieces I need are off the screen. Needs more work on setting up for various screen resolutions. For example, submittal titles and numbers aren't visible when I'm scrolling to the right. Needs something similar to Excel's Freeze function. 7. Email module doesn't work quite like I had hoped. I can drag emails into the online program, but it's difficult to search and view them. Some of the text gets jumbled with the date. They don't even have the Emails on the iPad/iPhone app. No way to sort them other than to tag them, which is difficult. If I copy a ton of emails over, then I have to tag each one manually. Not an efficient process yet. 8. Not easy to bulk edit. Procore had to upload our submittal log for us and then I needed to change a lot of it because it was our first upload. We had to manually open each submittal and edit the information I needed to add or change. 9. Data itself seems difficult to change like contacts, which cannot be deleted, even if you've never used them. Can only mark inactive. Benefit in some cases, but if you enter their email address wrong, it's there unless you contact them to delete it. I would love to be able to do more import/exporting on my own. It would make data entry a lot easier. Especially when setting up a job or entering commitments.

The investment is huge. If you are looking for a complete project management package, this will do it, but be prepared to completely immerse yourself in Procore. I do not recommend using it for one or two jobs. The more you use it, the better it will work for you.

Good for RFI and drawings

2018-05-05

Pros

Has many of the feature of Procore and does well to make revisions of drawings, registers and mark up easy.

Cons

Doesnt have the full package like Procore, many other project management tools are missing and could be implemented to rivial competitors.

I love Plangrid

2019-01-03

Pros

We have projects that both use Procore and Plangrid and I like the ease of use and the daily notifications that I get.

Cons

While the interface of Plangrid is a little elementary, the program is still solid and has been able to alert me to issues fast than that of Procore.

Good overall experience

2017-02-26

I'm also using Procore so it is very easy for me to compare the app.

Pros

Like that, I can scale distance and Draw on the PDF link my attachment and photos.

Cons

I do understand why I can't zoom like in another app that open PDF. But for me I find myself wanting to zoom just a little bit more. And a wood uses a back button or undo button for annotations.
