Construction management platform provider, Procore Technologies, Inc. has unveiled multiple platform updates to further meet the needs of its global customers
The construction management platform updates include improvements to document control, data and privacy enhancements.
Used in over 125 countries, Procore’s construction management platform is continually advancing to provide customers with everything they need to meet business and security needs worldwide.
“Procore builds software for the people who build the world,” said Tooey Courtemanche, Procore founder and CEO.
“Our platform enhancements for customisability, security, privacy, storage, and collaborative document management will benefit both existing and new customers as we continue to expand internationally.”
Collaborative document management goes global
Procore is taking its world-class document solution global to improve how the industry collaborates on construction documents across all project stakeholders.
This is often a fragmented and inefficient process with construction teams using multiple disconnected solutions for versioning, markup, and workflow management. In 2020, 90 million documents were uploaded to the Procore platform.
Procore’s new collaborative document management solution, coming soon, will offer a more flexible and configurable approach, making it easier and faster to access and collaborate on documents.
It will provide customers with an integrated markup experience, offer custom approval workflows with granular file-level permissions, and provide a solution that helps them meet common data environment (CDE) requirements and ISO compliance standards.
Philip Lambourne, head of design and information management at Henry Boot Construction Limited in the UK, said: “We use Procore to manage documents on our projects and to digitise our inspections and snagging processes.
“The level of support Procore offered with configuring the platform and its usability was largely the reason behind our decision to select them. The support provided is vital, not only for our internal employees but for all our supply chain partners.”
“For all Procore customers around the world, this will provide a single location for all project documents, from preconstruction through closeout, and can only be accomplished with a true platform offering unlimited users, unlimited data and unlimited collaboration on every project,” said Wyatt Jenkins, Procore’s senior vice president of product.
Global cloud infrastructure and security features to meet global needs
Procore has expanded its global infrastructure with 11 new cloud data centres for file storage, now 15 in total, that allows customers to store certain project data locally, while also improving the speed and performance of the platform.
The company provides enterprise-grade security and privacy features such as data encryption-at-rest, weekly pen tests for vulnerabilities, strict access control policies, and more.
Procore solutions can assist customers in meeting their data privacy and governance requirements, including GDPR, California’s Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and Australia’s Privacy Act of 1988 — learn more here.
Platform flexibility and global enhancements drive customer success
With feedback from global customers, Procore is building customisation into the construction management platform to meet the diverse needs of customers around the world.
Whether building an inspection test plan in Australia or contractual correspondence in Germany, Procore’s customisable platform flexes to support regional business needs.
Custom and Configurable fields are now supported by every product across the platform.
Dean Hopkins, chief operations officer at Oxford Properties, commented: “Procore is a big part of creating a global development platform, where we can benefit from what teams in Australia are doing and learning, and that can actually translate to what were doing in North America on projects, and then also to our teams in Europe on projects.
“Procore is at the centre of collaboration that activates this global pool of expertise.”
Industry votes Procore as top construction platform solution
Procore was recently named the tenth best software company in the world on The Software Report’s list of 100 Top Software Companies of 2021, and received top honours from G2 in eight categories of software: construction management, construction project management, bid management, construction ERP, construction drawing management, construction accounting, punch list, and jobsite management software.
