Procore Launches Digital Transformation Program with the Philippine Constructors Association to Upskill Local Construction Workforce

April 6, 2023

An initial 150 professionals from member firms will be trained to use construction management platform technology in the next few months

PHILIPPINES, MANILA – 6 April, 2023 – Procore Technologies, Inc., a leading global provider of construction management software, and the Philippine Constructors Association Inc. (PCA), have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to launch a PCA Digital Transformation Program in the Philippines. This partnership aims to extend the network of technically-skilled professionals in the construction industry, and is expected to upskill 150 PCA members in using Procore’s construction management software in 2023. “The construction industry is slow in keeping up with the advancement of technology - not for the lack of technology solutions, but rather a skills gap in using the technology. Providing the necessary tools and training is critical in moving the entire industry forward into a more productive, efficient and safe environment to work in. Procore is excited to be a key player in accelerating the digital transformation journey for the construction workforce in the Philippines,” said Bruce Wells, Vice President of Asia, Procore.According to the Procore How We Build Now 2022 benchmark report, construction firms in the Philippines understand that digital transformation is vital to overcome challenges in the industry, from the increasing cost of raw materials and equipment, maintaining safety, to improved productivity and staff management. In fact, research related to the survey found that Filipino construction professionals recognise the benefits of construction technology, in particular the reliance on human labour (55%), the ability to handle more projects (54%), and resource efficiency through less rework (53%).

To kickstart the PCA Digital Transformation Program, PCA identified nine individuals from its partners and member firms who will first be trained by a Procore strategic product consultant on the Procore platform. Following the training, these selected PCA members will then be qualified to serve as trainers that will lead technical workshops for the rest of the PCA members.

PCA members will receive complimentary access to the Procore account, and will undergo technical workshops on project management, quality and safety and more. Upon concluding the workshops, the members will complete online certification courses which validate their knowledge and expertise in using the Procore construction management platform.

“Globally, the construction industry is facing a skilled workforce shortage that cannot be solved overnight. The Philippines’ construction industry is therefore undergoing a rapid digital transformation push to address this challenge, by enhancing the productivity and upskilling our current workforce to ensure they stay relevant and competitive in the global arena. We are thrilled to be partnering with Procore to help future-proof our local construction industry, and be a frontrunner in the digital era,” said Barry Paulino, Executive Director, PCA.
