Follow along throughout the event and check out some highlights as we share updates Live from Groundbreak — the construction technology event of the year.
With participants eager to delve into the realm of construction technology, today’s sessions took a deep dive into the world of Procore.
The importance of understanding business objectives and tracking outcomes took center stage, alongside baselining, surveying and value tracking. As professionals in the audience knew, these are not just industry buzzwords, but critical pillars that support successful implementation. Attendees were introduced to the art of making precise adjustments to their environments in order to achieve desired outcomes. Equipped with these tactics, businesses are enabled to streamline processes and maximize returns.
But what stole the limelight was a real-life application of Procore, as demonstrated by leaders at New Atlantic, Peninsulators, Clark Construction, IDM Apartments and Aetna Bridge.
“Procore has been great. It gives me information about my person, my project and my tools,” shared Chris Zananiri, VP of Operations at New Atlantic.
Having integrated Procore into its systems a year ago, Aetna’s journey was not just a testament to the adaptability of the platform, but a clear representation of the future of construction technology. With the influx of AI technologies, Aetna Bridge had managed to seamlessly incorporate these tools into its management systems, establishing a culture of innovation within its team. Through technology, Aetna has bolstered the confidence of its workforce and amplified engagement across its ranks.
Using Procore’s Quality and Safety tools coupled with Aetna’s AI-enabled innovations – the AI QC Manager and AI Safety Manager – there was a visible elevation in safety standards and protocols.
One of the notable highlights of Aetna’s presentation was their leverage of Procore’s Training Center. It wasn’t just about introducing new tools or innovations, it was about ensuring that the entire team was in sync with these technological advancements, moving forward together in unison. Standardizing working procedures became less of a challenge and more of a systematic process, ensuring everyone was aligned with the latest in technology.
Looking to the future, the potential seems limitless. The idea of digitized data combined with AI paints a picture of an efficient, streamlined and optimized industry for elevated business outcomes. Whether veterans or newcomers, businesses left with a clear understanding of the value of Procore.
