Headquartered in Santa Clarita, California, Bottenfield Construction is a commercial and residential provider of construction management services. With the president of their company over 300 miles away, Bottenfield needed a way to keep everyone on the same page.
According to Jerry, an exceptional feature of Procore is the technical building functionality. What is drawn on plans and what people would like to see are sometimes different from what is actually created in the field. In that case, the company creates an RFI so everyone is aware of the changes the architect has made. All changes are documented, as a point of record, directly within Procore. Bottenfield no longer has to go through the process of phone calls, emails, or faxes. Not only does this speed up collaboration, but it also eliminates the potential for errors.
Jerry explains, "For instance, Terry Bottenfield, the president of our company, is in Sacramento. Not only is he involved, but he weighs in and has a thorough understanding of why we do certain things and why a particular dollar value is affixed to it. In our position, Procore is becoming more and more invaluable every day."
The transparency of Procore is very important for Bottenfield. All relevant parties can access company documents from within Procore in real time. "Any questions or RFIs can easily be followed up by a photograph and a clear explanation. That's a huge benefit for us." In addition, Procore's robust security features allow project documents to be hidden or made private between users so there is no risk of accidental data deletion.
Jerry said that he has already recommended Procore to other contractors. He believes that instead of trying to sell someone on the product, all that is necessary is to educate people about what Procore is capable of. "I've showed other contractors how easy it is to implement Procore into what they do every day. It's an honest testimonial and Procore just sells itself."
