Use Procore with your scheduling software to create, edit, and share schedules.
Procore enables quick evaluation of the key factors used to derive the best contractor for a specific scope. Users are able to compare bids based on factors such as a breakdown by cost code, the backlog and bidding history of individual bidders, and the physical location of specific bidders.
Because not everyone on the project team is familiar with Gantt charts, the Procore Schedule Tool also offers a calendar view, by day, week, or month. Project tasks for the construction schedule are presented as individual bars which display the task name, the resource assigned to that task, and the task start and finish dates. Each task has a live, clickable link that allows you to edit several items for each task.
Project schedules stored in Procore also feed information over to Procore's other construction project management tools. For example, the Daily Log Tool will automatically show the current day's tasks and resources as noted on the schedule. This makes it simple for the project superintendent or manager to note what happened on the job site with each scheduled task, on any given day.
With Procore, users can choose to change the task start date, finish date, or the percentage complete for each individual task using Microsoft Project, Primavera and many others. With Procore, there is no reason to learn how to use new construction project scheduling software; you can simply make schedule changes using the construction software you already use. Whenever a schedule task data point is edited, the Procore user ID, date, and time that change was made is recorded by Procore in the individual project database. This unique task change logging feature makes it possible for the entire history of a construction project schedule to be recalled at any time using Procore's Reports Tool—a feature that is not available from other construction project scheduling tools, even from well known vendors such as Microsoft Project and Primavera P6.
View construction project schedules using filtered views, where only the desired information is displayed. Construction project schedules can be filtered by summary tasks or by resource (e.g., the subcontractor working on that task). Procore allows users to search the entire construction project schedule using a standard search box. Search through a large project schedule for every occurrence of any text, such as "plumbing contractor" or "framing." With Procore, the construction project schedule can also be supplemented with "To-Do List" items. These items are not edited by a user's construction project management scheduling software, but remain on the Project Calendar screen within Procore.
