Construction OS launches to help developers with project management
Procore Technologies, Inc. has announced Procore Construction OS, a cohesive platform that connects people, applications, and devices to help create a frictionless construction process. It was designed to serve users and improve the build process through a variety of important enhancements, including new reporting and visualization tools; access to around 100 apps in the App Marketplace; a newly launched developer portal; and the ability to securely integrate, store, and manage your projects within one platform.

Their goal is to provide customers with complete and continuous visibility into all aspects of their construction business processes with the expansion of 2 new solutions for their cloud-based construction platform:

- Construction Financials: is a robust job costing solution that connects the field and the head office, providing businesses with a central location to monitor the financial health of their projects in real time.

- Quality & Safety: consists of tools that help customers baseline, identify trends, and improve on their quality and safety process.

As part of this unified platform, which includes Project Management - their flagship product that allows construction firms to simultaneously manage multiple projects - they are trying to give companies all the tools they need to make more informed decisions spanning the entire lifecycle of their business. Through their public API, third party applications and custom built integrations plug into Procore, creating a centralized location where everyone involved on a project can access information.

“We are a software company that believes openness means freedom, partnering, choice, and truth,” said Tooey Courtemanche, CEO, Procore Technologies. “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.”

Increasing labor gaps and diminishing access to capital are driving a transformational change in the construction industry, with companies looking to technology to enhance the way project teams communicate and drive greater value on and off the jobsite.
