Always on the cutting edge, Procore sees Google Glass and other new technology as a vital component in construction project management software of the future
CARPINTERIA, Calif., Mar. 11, 2014 — Procore Technologies, Inc., a leading cloud-based construction management software company featured on the Inc. 500/5000 list of the fastest growing companies in the nation, views new Google Glass technology as the next frontier for construction management software. Procore sees the up and coming technology as a perfect fit for the challenging construction industry and is currently testing its potential. Construction projects often operate with razor thin margins and require the utmost efficiency to prevent delays that can cost builders and firms time and money.
Although Google Glass is often touted as a cool, cutting edge wearable technology for photo sharing, phone, and email correspondence, its functionality beyond these basic uses remains uncharted territory. The visionaries at Procore see Google Glass' immense potential for enterprise use as they actively plan for such possibilities in construction project management.
Utilizing Google Glass, Procore imagines a world where a project manager in Los Angeles could virtually walk onto a jobsite in San Francisco, New York and Shanghai all on the same day. Procore envisions Glass enabling project managers to communicate, share documents seamlessly, and monitor progress by collaborating in real-time.
Procore's Lead Android Engineer, Andrew Ballinger, explains, "Glass is part of a larger push towards wearable computing that has been a very long time coming. Smart phones demonstrate the usefulness of such a device, but we are very much in the era of pocket watches, which makes the act of checking the time or reading an email very noticeable and very deliberate."
Although Google Glass has yet to hit mainstream, Procore engineers continue to develop the Procore app and test its potential as they create new construction project management solutions. At the cutting edge of technology, Procore is prepared for the future and will be ready when the construction industry begins to invest in and adapt to wearable technology.
