Safety is a top priority in the construction industry. Procore’s Quality and Safety platform helps construction teams stay on top of safety through a number of helpful features and tools.

Powerful data and reporting dashboards allow users to pinpoint and problem-solve issues across all projects efficiently and effectively. Plus, the software’s Investigations and Observations tools allow teams to identify and categorize hazards to prevent errors and complications on the job.

The Quality and Safety module also comes standard with Procore’s mobile application for uninterrupted communication between employees across all job sites.

Not only that, but the extensive data reporting and impressive analytics features also allow companies to maximize profit margins from every angle.

Construction Financials can also be integrated with virtually any existing accounting software for a streamlined financial interface that works as hard as you do.
