Construction apps are popping up all over the place and it’s getting increasingly difficult to determine which ones are right for you personally or right for your business. The truth is, there probably isn’t one application that will meet all of your needs. Procore, one of the leaders in construction project management software, recognized this issue and decided to do something about it.
The release of Procore’s new and cohesive platform, Construction OS, was recently announced at the company’s yearly Groundbreak conference. Not only will Construction OS give Procore users the powerful tools they're used to with Procore, it will also give them access to around 100 other of the industry’s favorite apps, like Box, NoteVault, EarthCam, Fieldlens, Plans4Less, SmartBid, and BusyBusy. It’s an extremely critical step in integrating many successful and powerful tools onto a single platform. There’s more apps to come, as well, as the Procore has released their public application program interface (API) for other companies to be able to integrate their products.
Procore also launched two new platform options, in addition to their flagship Procore Project Management, which they call Procore Construction Financials and Procore Quality & Safety. Each of the 3 different platforms grant unique accesses to the users, but all users are still interconnected by the ability to view documents and insights.
Procore Construction FInancials is a high level management system that allows contract, change and cost management. Quality & Safety focuses on inspections, logs, and observation tools to allow companies the gather data and identify trends.
"We are a software company that believes openness means freedom, partnering, choice, and truth," said Tooey Courtemanche, CEO, Procore Technologies said in a press release. "Construction OS is the culmination of all the technology that we've built, the API and the App Marketplace, that will help Procore scale so we can help you realize the promise of the single source of the truth. It will help further align all parties around that common goal of a frictionless jobsite with free-flowing communication that gets everybody closer to the main hub of information."
