Change orders are a distraction. When a change order comes up that alters work currently taking place or about to take place, that means that those affected need to stop what they’re doing and come up with a new plan. If it only happens once or twice it’s probably not a big deal, but as the quantity of change orders increase, the constant switching and re-planning can become a real productivity loss.
We at Procore understand that. So we developed easy-to-use processes to distribute scope changes and pricing requests along with automated tracking to ensure change requests are not only distributed, but responses are collected and reminders are sent.
“The Change Management Tool has helped us tremendously as an organization. It has centralized the change management process in one location and is saving us a significant amount of time.” Chris Russell, Engelberth Construction
“All in One” Eliminates “Many”
Not only does Procore allow for a more productive project team, but the all-in-one platform eliminates the need for multiple project solutions. According to Derk Walkotten from Lakewood Construction, “Procore has eliminated hours of switching between different programs to process change orders. It has also given me more mobility. Being able to effectively communicate with subs, owners, and team members, anywhere and anytime from my mobile device, frees me to more effectively manage multiple projects at once.”
Meet your financial goals so you can focus your attention on the job at hand.
No matter where your team is, they can log in to Procore and quickly see the status of every item they have been asked to review. Teams don’t need to create multiple spreadsheets and rummage through their inbox trying to figure out who has responded and who hasn’t. Tools like Cost Management, Timecard, Change Management, and Budget Forecasting allow each team member to meet their financial goals for a project and simply get the job done.
Connect project management and accounting (and avoid an epic battle).
Project managers have specific objectives. Accounting has specific objectives. But those objectives aren’t the same. And that can pose a problem for any project. Using the power of Procore’s Sage 300 CRE Connector, BBL Construction is able to please both parties. Eric Weatherwax noticed the difference immediately. “Project managers can now act independently from Accounting when forecasting and planning, yet the Accounting Team retains full control over Sage 300 CRE. That's the ideal outcome for avoiding World War III in the office.” Now, project managers are able to use financial data pulled from Sage 300 CRE along with our full financial suite to manage the entire project budget, all from one platform.
