FSG Leverages Time-Tested Software to Get the Job Done

Watch Video

The Challenge

With teams using multiple software solutions and various means of managing information, FSG wanted to streamline and standardize processes. They also wanted a long-term solution they could leverage year after year, rather than a short-term fix.

The Solution

Procore offered a single, user-friendly platform for all project information. Not only did this help boost communication across field and office teams, but it also offered a comprehensive toolset specifically built for specialty contractors. Moreover, Procore continues to deliver products that have evolved with the industry and support the needs of specialty contractors.

At the end of the day, you can’t afford to not renew with Procore.

The Story

Prior to implementing Procore, FSG Electric Project Teams used an array of solutions to manage projects including binders, spreadsheets, Dropbox, and email. They also managed project information according to their own means and methods.

Director of Construction Development Deon Snider wanted to equip project managers with tools to help them better manage processes, teams, and data more efficiently. He decided to demo various construction management solutions.

"During this process, I kept comparing other software packages to Procore, time after time," he recalls. "Procore became the measuring stick which I used to evaluate other softwares by. It didn’t take long for me to figure out that I was wasting my time looking for another solution. We just needed to implement Procore."

In fact, Snider says he was "amazed at how easy Procore was to use," adding, "it wasn’t just that—it was also extremely robust." The platform helped boost field-to-office communication and ensured teams had the same set of drawings and pertinent documents to reduce rework. Plus, having a centralized solution meant project information was standardized and efficient.

Unlike many other solutions on the market, Procore was built for the construction industry—and better yet, offered tools specifically for specialty contractors. As a Procore user since 2013, Snider has seen the platform continue to support the needs of specialty contractors.

"Some of Procore’s product enhancements are simply astounding," he says. "Procore has taken tools that were very good and found ways to make significant enhancements. They’ve made what was excellent even better. In some cases, they’ve provided solutions for problems that I didn’t know I had."

He continues, "Procore is built for everyone in the construction industry because we all have the same pain points. The amount of information we have to manage and keep under control is insane, and it’s in constant flux. That’s not unique to GCs. Procore is equally important for GCs and specialty contractors."

Snider explains that in four separate cases, the general contractor FSG was working with at the time noticed the FSG team on site using Procore on iPads. This led to a demo of the platform, and in all four cases, the general contractor ended up implementing Procore. Snider notes, "We work hard to remain ‘forward-thinking,’ looking for ways to innovate our processes and tools to maximize our efficiency and minimize costs. There’s a huge amount of value to Procore because it does make a tangible difference and helps set you apart from your competition."

Snider says that Procore has remained an integral part of their construction management process—and plans to continue using Procore in the future to help ensure FSG’s success.
