Upper Saddle River, New Jersey, Oct. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today at Procore Groundbreak, EarthCam announced its fourth generation of integration for Procore – the most widely used construction software platform. As Procore’s number one jobsite camera provider, EarthCam unveiled new ways to incorporate visual information for safety and compliance. Building on EarthCam’s comprehensive partnership, these new upgrades help teams automate the addition of imagery into Procore’s Daily Logs – users can now add visual data to safety violations, accidents, equipment records and site inspections.
In today’s challenging environment, assuring site safety has reached new levels of complexity. In addition to maintaining a safe work environment, the construction industry must adhere to expanded PPE regulations and social distancing requirements. EarthCam’s unique integration records visual proof of safe practices and compliance into the Daily Log workflow. Additionally, through EarthCam’s partnerships with third party safety auditing services, observations are automatically populated as action items in Procore. Observations include annotated photographs and details of any infraction – including time, location, remediation steps and required responders. Capturing critical visual evidence of compliance, promoting worker safety and mitigating risk increases companies’ ROI on their entire EarthCam/Procore investment.
“For years, we’ve been consistently delivering innovative functionality for our clients,” said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder at EarthCam. “As a trusted Procore Partner, we’re working extensively with analytics solutions and third party integrators to advance visual information for a safer jobsite.”
Site inspections in Procore’s Daily Logs can now be enhanced with EarthCam’s 360° reality capture photos, drone content and BIM 4D models. By empowering users with data-rich media that is simple to analyze and understand, construction teams can spend less time in the field and easily share updates across their organization, unifying communications.
This latest round of powerful features builds upon EarthCam’s long-standing integration with Procore, which already includes RFI, observations, change event creation and Daily Log automation for weather, waste and equipment. New efficiencies were also introduced today to make the Request for Information (RFI) process more flexible, allowing a ‘draft’ RFI to be created so that contextual data or annotations can be added to an image before it is sent to the assignee. This prevents duplicate data entry, and eliminates extra manual steps to amend ‘open’ RFIs, making workflow faster and more fluid.
Combined with EarthCam’s pioneering applications for AI-powered image recognition and editing of its time-lapse movies, EarthCam is driving productivity for a more visually informative jobsite. EarthCam provides end-to-end services, including camera rentals, same-day delivery and professional installation.
