Simplicity is Key: Why Wieland Switched to Procore

"I was spending all of my time training people on point solutions, and they’re always changing. Procore integrates everything into one cohesive system and it makes training easy." Mike Mead, Wieland

Stuck in a 2-year contract with Viewpoint, Mike Mead Director of IT at Wieland, was frustrated with the implementation and training process and was hoping for an easy out. The team at Wieland signed with Viewpoint when it was presented to them by a third-party consultant as ‘the best option.’ Mike Mead explains, “We took a leap of faith with Viewpoint, hoping they would deliver, tried the product, and ended up hating it. Viewpoint had a long implementation process, it was hard to train our employees, and it was especially hard to use. We were 2 years in to Viewpoint, and the team was still trying to learn how to make reports.”

Fast forward, Mike and the team at Wieland have fully implemented Procore after a few short months, and are up and running with multiple projects. Mike used the Procore training videos and certification to ensure that all team members were comfortable with the tools and processes. “For me, the best part is being able to integrate the various single point systems. With Procore, you can say ‘okay, click on new submittals’ and it just makes sense – it’s intuitive. I was spending all of my time training people on point solutions, and they’re always changing. Procore integrates everything into one cohesive system which makes training easy.” While Wieland has only been using Procore for a couple months, Mike has already seen a drastic improvement in the company’s processes, workflows, and even printing costs.
