Your window between the field and office.
Due to COVID-19, the past few weeks have presented new challenges for the construction industry. Many construction professionals are adjusting to the evolving landscape by hosting daily check-ins, practicing social distancing, and having office staff work remotely. The women and men who make up the construction industry are accustomed to working through challenges and chaos, proving resilient when it matters most. The Procore platform is helping construction teams stay connected and moving forward during these unprecedented times.
Zoom is the top video-first unified communications platform. At Procore, we use Zoom company-wide every day. Recently, our customers expressed their need to have a presence on the job site while working remotely, as well as a more efficient way to communicate with each other. In response, our development team worked around the clock to build an exciting new integration with Zoom. This free integration gives construction teams the ability to communicate and collaborate effectively while working from any location, through video conference calls.
“Our mission is to connect everyone in construction on a global platform. In times like these, we see the power that technology can have to keep construction project teams connected and moving forward,” said Tooey Courtemanche, CEO of Procore. “We know that it is essential to move quickly in order to meet the demands of our users, and our partnership with Zoom is another way Procore is supporting the construction industry during this challenging time.”
Procore has built the integration with Zoom to simplify the way Procore users set up and join video conference calls. This can now be done directly within the Procore platform. In addition, Zoom is offering a 20% discount to all Procore customers interested in purchasing Zoom Pro, which offers additional functionality. Please contact a Zoom representative to take advantage of the offer.
“We see a growing need for simplified business communications for on-site and remote teams. We believe that the integration with Procore will strengthen construction professionals’ ability to be productive, regardless of their location, by streamlining communication across teams,” said Eric Yuan, Founder and CEO of Zoom.
Benefits of Zoom
Procore’s Zoom integration allows project teams to visually share documents, discuss health-related updates and best practices, check-in regularly with large or small groups, and even allows project managers and project engineers to view what field teams are seeing in real-time through video conferencing.
How it works
Through the Meetings tool in Procore, users can now add a Zoom Meeting as the medium for communication. When users view a meeting's details on web and mobile devices, as well as when viewing a PDF export of meeting details, they can join the virtual conference call from the Zoom meeting hyperlink.
