Construction management software provider adds Procore Drive to cloud-based project management suite

Procore Drive is a new file storage and synchronization application from cloud-based construction software provider Procore.

Procore Drive, which adds to Procore’s established project management platform, is designed to help teams share and collaborate on large files using mobile devices, laptops and desktop computers without using FTP clients.

Procore Drive is described as a fast, simple document management platform with rapid file upload and download, plus drag and drop functionality. Users can select documents directly from their desktop, Outlook, or Gmail and drop them into Procore Drive including entire folder structures. All files housed in Procore Drive are automatically synced with Procore’s cloud-based project management application.

The software is also said to eliminate version confusion by allowing a user to check out a file for a designated period of time, preventing simultaneous revisions.

Procore Drive also allows teams to manage their Microsoft Project and Primavera P6 project schedules, providing the most recent schedule, Gantt charts, and scheduling tasks in Drive without having to open the native scheduling software application. All schedule changes made in Drive can then be saved and synced with Procore’s cloud application.
