Procore expands pre-construction capabilities on its platform
October 15, 2021 By Rock to Road Staff
Procore Technologies has made upgrades to its platform to provide more thorough insights for pre-construction project teams.
Included are a new reports builder, and a global workflow engine to improve the efficiency of estimating and bidding processes.
Estimating and bidding
Procore acquired Esticom in 2020, and has now fully integrated the company’s software into the Procore platform as Procore Estimating. This provides tools for digital takeoff, estimating, and building bid proposals, and is connected with workflows to the project budget, change management and purchase order process.
Further highlighting Procore’s investment in artificial intelligence and machine learning is automated area takeoff, coming in 2022. Estimators will be able to automatically extract quantification data from plans to increase the speed and accuracy of estimating.
Enhancements to Procore’s integrated bidding solution, available in the first quarter of 2022, will improve flexibility and efficiency of the bidding process for customers, the company says.
Custom bid forms will allow customers to capture the exact data points needed in each bid, and bid leveling allows customers to quickly and easily compare bids across an entire project, scope of work or specific line item.
Global workflow, reporting
The new global workflow engine will allow customers to build custom approval workflows across the platform with predefined conditions, coupled with notifications and permissions.
In the fourth quarter of 2021, this new functionality will be in beta as part of Procore Project Financials, allowing customers to streamline the invoice and payments process by building approval workflows with conditional dollar thresholds.
Procore is providing customers with key insights with the enhanced report builder, available in beta in the fourth quarter of 2021. The new report builder will provide insights with cross-platform reporting and interactive dashboards.
Users will be able to compare data from both active and inactive projects to benchmark performance, drill down into specific details, and keep the entire project team informed with scheduled report distribution.
The enhanced Report Builder will be available at no additional cost to all Procore customers.
