Requests-for-Information (RFIs) can help a project run smoothly and on schedule, but they can also cause delays which can mean cost overruns and lost profit. Procore knows that timely RFI management is the key to good program management and overall project success.
Architects and engineers using Procore aren't forced to login to answer an RFI—Procore allows all RFI communications to be conducted via email. With Procore's email functionality and ease of use, there's zero learning curve and no formal training necessary.
Procore adds value beyond other construction project management software by keeping track of the various communications involved in closing each RFI. The email trail of back-and-forth communications is tracked and archived for each RFI, allowing the full history of every RFI to be recalled and reviewed at any time in the future, either during a project or long after the course of construction has been completed.
Team members can stay up to date on all RFIs. An RFI is no longer a single fax or email between the contractor and the architect—Procore introduces transparency and accountability to the RFI process and ensures no one on your team misses an overdue RFI again. In Procore, you can automatically send overdue reminder emails to all parties involved in order to keep RFIs on track.
Procore's "Related To" feature lets you attach any electronic document to an RFI, so that the supporting information—plans, specs, photos, PDFs—is right where you need it.
