The ConTechTrio team is here is Austin Texas to cover Groundbreak 2017 hosted by Procore. It is fascinating to reflect on how much growth this event and company has experienced since the inaugural Groundbreak event in 2015. Prior to the Keynote address by Tooey Courtemanche and Steve Zahm I was able to site down with Bassem Hamdy, EVP of Marketing, to learn what big announcements would be made to day!
Mr. Hamdy shared the following announcements with me:
Procore has created Construction OS, a cloud based platform which connects people, apps, and devices (similar to the Salesforce App Exchange). The idea here was to create a new Platform Economy, in which users could accomplish all of the processes required in the construction lifecycle. This operating system will include new reporting and visualization tools to compliment the nearly 100 apps in the Procore App Marketplace.
New Stand Alone Products
The Procore team realized over the past year that some users had a need for a more cohesive platform to manage their projects. By this I mean, that while Procore was a great Project Management platform it could not directly handle other critical tasks such as Financials, Quality and Safety.
One of the most requested user features was a better file syncing solution, for example very large BIM files. The Procore team has developed Sync to handle any file issue for current platform users.
New Number of Users
The last item Mr. Hamdy shared with me was that the Procore platform now has over 2,000,000 users.
