If we learned anything from 2020, it’s that technology is no longer a “nice-to-have” but rather a “need-to-have”. Last year, the pandemic drove massive change in the construction industry from disruptions in productivity, new safety protocols to mitigate exposure, and the accelerated adoption of technology to protect shrinking profit margins.
In yesterday’s construction market, projects of all sizes were often at risk of delays and cost overruns due to frequent communication failures. In today’s construction market, the risks are heightened with jobsite closures, supply chain bottlenecks, and increased material costs. Without a central repository for project stakeholders and project information, teams are left with scattered information and data silos—leaving minimal room for collaboration and maximum room for error.
All of these challenges posed the question: amongst all we can not control, what are the areas that we can?
Procore’s mission is to connect everyone in construction on a global platform in order to eliminate these silos, and provide a single source of accurate and up-to-date information. By bringing all project stakeholders into a single application, teams can focus less on data management and more on construction management, so they can do what they do best—build.
Get Under Control, What You Can Control
Procore helps teams protect their profit margins in an increasingly competitive and volatile market by improving field-to-office communication with real-time, accurate information with mobile-friendly tools. Unlike manual methods or disjointed systems, Procore allows field and office teams to work together in a single application so they can:
- Stay on schedule. Provide full visibility into project health anytime, anywhere so schedules are never behind.
- Avoid rework. Ensure accuracy of drawings and documents that are easily accessed and updated from the field.
- Maximize productivity. Determine the most efficient way to manage resources and change requests.
- Get paid. Document everything that happens on the jobsite, everyday in order to validate work completed.
- Bid accurately. Track costs and accurately predict estimates.
“I was recently talking about COVID and how everyone is conserving resources. I was saying that Procore would be the last thing to go—it’s not something we could live without or do business without. It’s been fantastic for us. It feels like a partnership instead of just being a vendor to us,” says Jessica Harrison, Employee Development Manager of DCO Commercial Floors.
