Procore Technologies has announced new solutions, including AI-driven voice capture, integrated messaging, and an open network of construction companies.
Procore Founder and CEO Tooey Courtemanche said the company has been working to connect the construction industry on a global platform, providing a single source of truth for customers around the world.
“We’re consistently innovating by connecting all of your people, workflows, data and tools, with a single user experience on mobile and web, from preconstruction to close out.”
With acquisitions of INDUS.AI and Avata Intelligence, Procore has invested in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology across its platform to help unlock the value of project data.
Procore Quick Capture is voice-enabled input technology that will launch in 2022, automating and simplifying data entry in the field by “telling” Procore what it should enter. With Procore Quick Capture on the Punch tool, users will be able capture a video of punch items and simply talk to Procore. Through AI and ML, Procore will create the punch item, attach a photo, and even assign it to the appropriate trade. Early testing has shown that this new voice-enabled punch can cut down the time required to capture and log information in the field for reporting by at least 50 per cent.

Procore Conversations, which will be available in pilot in the fourth quarter of 2021, aims to help save time and integrate communication across channels. Conversations are organised, prioritised, and easily accessible on mobile and web.
Procore SVP Wyatt Jenkins said the company has met with customers and has aimed to rethink how it innovates and improves the lives of the construction industry.
“We are building solutions that connect the field and the office across mobile, leveraging AI, voice commands and messaging with Procore Conversations,” Jennkins said.
“On top of that, we are introducing the world’s largest online network of construction companies. It really feels like the beginning of the next chapter of construction technology.”
The Procore Construction Network, which is currently in pilot, is a free online business directory connecting general contractors, specialty contractors, owners, architects, engineers, suppliers, and vendors. With location-based search and advanced filters, customers will be able to use the Procore Construction Network to quickly find and connect with new construction partners. This aims to make it easier for construction professionals to expand their online presence, promote their businesses, and grow their networks.
