In March we launched Procore.org with the mission to empower the construction industry and the communities it serves. Today, I’m excited to announce that through Procore.org we will be partnering with Habitat for Humanity International to provide unlimited use of Procore’s suite of products, including Project Management, Quality & Safety, and Construction Financials as an in-kind donation.
Habitat for Humanity builds strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter, and through this partnership with Procore.org, the international nonprofit will now have the full support of Procore. In addition to software, the partnership includes access to Procore’s customer support and implementation, enabling each Habitat project to be completed on time to create more decent and affordable places to call home.
"We are grateful for Procore’s innovative partnership,” said Lynda Smith, senior director of Corporate Relations at Habitat for Humanity International. “This software will help Habitat streamline construction management to allow tracking and collaboration for Habitat project managers and contractors."
Mirroring our corporate client agreements, Procore will provide Habitat for Humanity with an unlimited user license, allowing every local Habitat to utilize Procore on their projects. Currently, more than 40 Habitat organizations are utilizing Procore, and the goal is to expand this use to as many Habitats as possible.
"With Procore we're able to communicate seamlessly with our field workers because it's a cloud-based application that works across all mobile devices,” said Gary Blais, Construction Manager, Habitat for Humanity of Broward, Inc. “In addition, the Procore daily log tool has helped to quickly communicate issues out in the field so that they can be resolved in a timely manner."
We believe that empowering the industry through education, training, and access to technology will advance construction and have a positive impact on the people and communities the industry serves.
Procore.org works with universities to educate the future construction workforce, supports the advancement of the trades and skilled labor, and provides free access to Procore products to nonprofit organizations that are helping to build and rebuild within local communities.
