So, you're considering using Procore across your projects but you're wondering if it's the best option. Or maybe you already use Procore but it's not meeting your specific needs.

In this article, we’ll discuss the best alternatives to Procore on the market right now to help you decide whether another option is better suited to your requirements. 

The five options we'll explore all have their unique strengths and weaknesses but the best construction management software solutions on the market will always have:

  1. A centralised system with all project data in one place
  2. Access to real-time information
  3. Digital process management
  4. Transparent progress reporting
  5. Integrated cost-management 

By the end of reading this article, you’ll know the best Procore alternatives so you can decide which option is right for you.

{Note: Sablono was created to fulfill all five of the criteria above and so much more. Get a demo to discover how Sablono can help you on your next project or continue reading to learn why it's a great alternative to Procore. }

 

Alternatives to Procore: 

  1. Sablono 
  2. Autodesk Construction Cloud
  3. Fieldwire
  4. Oracle Primavera P6
  5. Buildertrend



1. Sablono

Screenshot 2024-05-15 at 16.06.44

First up is Sablono - our own solution. Sablono is the world’s first digital execution software solution that connects all the moving parts of the construction supply chain in one intelligent digital system.

PROCORE ALTERNATIVE

Sablono as an alternative to Procore

Sablono

Scalable - best for large and complex constriction projects

Connects and streamlines execution workflows 

Focused transparent status reporting

Procore

Best for small/medium enterprises


Digitalises existing individual processes

Focused on support processes

While both Sablono and Procore are ‘construction project management systems’, the uses of this term are quite different. 

Procore focuses on digitising existing support processes like paying your workers and facilitating on-site communication.

Alternatively, Sablono takes a holistic view of the entire construction execution phase and connects the different workflows surrounding time, quality and cost to give an accurate view of what’s done versus what’s not done.


Want a full break-down of how Sablono's features compare to Procore? Get it out here: Sablono vs Procore.

 

What makes Sablono unique?

The majority of options on the market look at the different parts of the construction phase in isolation and deal with issues once they appear - think of this as reporting the car crash once it has happened. 

Sablono works to not only report the ‘car crash’ but to actively prevent it by looking at the root cause of issues. Granular details around who did what, where, and when, we build a picture of what went wrong, so it’s clear how to avoid it from happening again.

The real-time status reporting automatically connects the different workflows on a construction site and allows you to understand your project in the moment - no chasing and sifting through endless silos of information required. 

And since everything is connected, It also helps you to understand the impact that different factors have on other parts of your project. Does a particular subcontractor slow you down? How does a particular building sequence impact the rate of quality issues? Sablono gives you all the answers.


{Sablono works to streamline your processes to help you unlock £10,000+ per project, per month in cost savings and 700+ hours per project, per month. Want to see exactly how Sablono can help you? Our team would be happy to help:

Key capabilities:

 

Seamlessly manage your processes 

The Sablono platform combines all aspects of time quality and cost. From real-time insights into what’s done and what’s yet to be done to QA checklists that are directly attached to your units, commercial dashboards that are automatically updated as your project progresses and more. 

The centralised system gives everyone working on a project one version of the truth to replace spreadsheets and disjointed manual processes. 

Connect your entire construction supply chain in a centralised system

Hero - 4 devices

Sablono connects your entire construction supply chain - both on-site works and off-site module construction.

With Sablono, everyone is accountable and responsible for the project’s success.  Connect your trades in real-time with the Sablono app where trades can make notes and add photos to tasks, flag issues and report on the status of works in the moment.

This provides project managers with a real-time understanding of everything happening on a project. 

 


Easily track your progress

Track Free landing page visuals (8)

Get a birdseye’s overview of your project or zoom into the granular details of who did what when. 

This gives your true visibility on your project so you truly understand and track the status of works, whether progress schedules are being met, and how to deal with future milestones.

Sablono empowers decision-makers with more accurate information so they can make better decisions faster. The system provides an unmatched workflow overview.

Everything you need to know about your project is in one place, updated in real-time, and is accessible to whoever needs it whenever they need it.

Sablono reviews

The Sablono team is very approachable and supportive. They are welcome to your project set-up and also are there to propose new ideas and another vision of workflow, exchange with the site teams and subcontractors. I recommend the use of Sablono on project sites to follow project, cost valuations, overall performance review.” – Laura L.

The ability to manage time, cost and quality across a projects in a granular way and the integration the platform provides between the 3 objectives. This makes even the most complex projects more manageable. Its incredibly user-friendly meaning anyone can use the platform - something which is often overlooked in technology implementation in the construction industry.” – Barnett E.

2. Autodesk Construction Cloud

autodesk construction cloud

Autodesk delivers smart features that align your plans with your project. With this system, you can create intuitive digital plans and the basic elements of your construction project.

With Autodesk, project managers can easily connect with their deliverables and help crews to better understand how to put together a build. 

This is a management software best used for the planning stages of construction projects, but can also be used throughout if you are okay with less detailed insights at the other stages. 

Key features of Autodesk Construction Cloud:

  • Create designs ready to be implemented in the construction phase.
  • Real-time access to the latest schedule.
  • Compatible with Primavera P6, Microsoft Project and ASTA Powerproject.
  • Integrated RFI management.
  • Single submittal log to manage all submittals.
  • Centralised construction meeting minutes.
  • Cost, quality and schedule management.
  • Connected project workflows. 

 

The most important aspect of the program, collaborating models between far-flung users, works solidly. You'd expect a higher-quality user interface from a company as established as Autodesk, but that's a minor complaint. Autodesk's customer service is responsive and they support their programs well.” Paul B.

3. Fieldwire

Screenshot 2024-05-17 at 12.54.26

With Fieldwire, managers can organise workers and activities by harnessing conventional tracking tools like spreadsheets. This system gives you a three-week window of upcoming milestones and planned activities and allows you to place workers in the areas they are needed.

Fieldwire is concerned with directing trades and has more of a focus on workforce management than tracking deliverables so this is something to consider if you are looking for a system that places equal weight on both of these elements.  

Key features of Fieldwire:

  • Real-time communication.
  • Connects the field and the office. 
  • Mobile jobsite management. 
  • Construction scheduling - prioritise works according to schedules with a three-week look-ahead.
  • Trade coordination.
  • Creates a manageable record for the handover of projects.
  • Label different activities and customise task status.
  • Cost management. 

Fieldwire allows all personnel on the construction site to see the most recent drawings and specifications at all times. There is no more need to print drawings on-site and print new drawings after every design change. Up-to-date drawings are accessible in real-time on an iPad. Fieldwire reduces mistakes made on-site and eliminates the risk of someone proceeding with work based on outdated plans.” Jillian M.

4. Oracle Primavera P6


Oracle Primavera

The Oracle platform allows you to better keep track of your workforce by connecting all team members. Oracle has a focus on project costs, and gives users access to crucial information at the planning stage of a project.

Best described as a process tool, Oracle gathers data for clients on their platform. Oracle is another favourite amongst project managers, but one thing to consider here is that this software runs the risk of creating information silos due to the lack of integration between workflows. 

Key features of Oracle Primavera:

  • Plan, schedule, and control large-scale programs and individual projects.
  • Secure multiuser access to schedules.
  • Allow project managers to coordinate costs.
  • Open and schedule multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Adaptable views.
  • Team member interfaces for gathering status updates.

Primavera makes scheduling and maintaining baselines easy. The facility for resource management and enterprise-wide project management is very helpful.” Saurabh A.

Key features of Buildertrend:
