ProjectReady Procore Marketplace Listing Makes Collaborative Project Information Management Easier Across Construction & Design Teams

ProjectReady, a leading cloud-based project management and document control solution for the AECO, has enjoyed a robust partnership with Procore, a leading provider of construction management software, and has introduced integrations that promote improved collaborative project information management. The partnership between Procore and ProjectReady has helped both parties expand on core missions and value propositions. Additionally, inclusion of ProjectReady in the Procore Marketplace further helps the Procore mission of empowering users.

Another Step Toward Truly Connected Construction

The partnership between ProjectReady and Procore addresses the lack of cross-platform system interoperability – one of the biggest challenges currently facing the AECO.

Today, there are quite a few companies working toward their own interpretation of ideal connected construction and most approaches require users to adopt a common data environment (CDE). While CDEs allow different teams to work together and reduces the number of software silos at a high level, what users are left with are a handful of “super silos” that, due to competition in the marketplace, fail to integrate to eachother in a way that actually improves productivity and collaboration.

ProjectReady’s mission to bring true connected construction to the marketplace hinges on being able to agnostically bring various CDEs together, including Procore and the Autodesk Construction Cloud. Partnership with Procore and inclusion in the Procore app marketplace is key to the further development of an integrated data environment – or an IDE. Improved collaboration through integration is core to the development of an IDE that allows designers, builders, and owners to work together, bridge workflows, streamline communication and improve productivity.

Together, the cloud-based solutions ProjectReady and Procore provide users add incredible value to customers by delivering a single unified experience. The integration empowers users to connect and manage content and workflows across platforms. Simplified, repeatable, and governed user processes and governed by roles-based accessibility makes it easier for project teams to work together. Users gain improved transparency and collaboration across each project phase during the entire project lifecycle.

Partnership Announcement | Indicta & ProjectReady | Press Release | ProjectReady

ProjectReady reveals strategies that help design firms, construction companies, and project owners implement better email management practices that reduce risk and improve efficiency.

WHITE PLAINS, NY (August 12, 2022) – Collaborative project information management (PIM) software provider ProjectReady released a new report addressing the risk and efficiency challenges architecture, engineering, construction, and project owner (AECO) firms face when teams use email as their preferred communication and collaboration tool. “How To Add Email To The Project Record: Four Must-Have Email Features That Promote Better Construction Collaboration & Why It Matters,” looks at why employees prefer email over other communication options.

The result of a poor email management strategy, according to the report, includes reduced productivity, increased likelihood of litigation challenges, and an inability to meet project budgets and deadlines.

“All information that flows back and forth across team members in the context of a project should be tracked, recorded, and stored for easy access by the entire project team,” the report states. “This approach protects the overall project from personnel issues (including vacations or the addition or subtraction of team members), promotes continuity, and provides context to the data and information being shared, which promotes greater insight into the entire project.”

On average, according to a separate study produced by Mail Manager and cited by ProjectReady, 80 percent of project correspondence flows through email, including scope changes, requests for information, drawings, and more.

The white paper goes on to outline ideas for integration that, without diminishing user experience, makes it easier for companies to adopt solutions that incorporates email management best practices for AECO project teams. Suggestions include the introduction of easy email association, cross-platform workflow management, time and task integration, and user-friendly metadata implementation to improve search and eDiscovery at the project and portfolio levels.

“If people don’t have a way to easily communicate and collaborate, they are going to find one,” said Joe Giegerich, ProjectReady Chief Executive Officer. “For those in the AECO, the preferred method of communication is email. Rather than introducing yet another tool that would ultimately fall by the wayside, we doubled down on our effort to make email work harder, which is in line with our company mission to help our clients realize greater value from their existing tech investments.”
