Cloud-based construction application provider Procore Technologies claims to have doubled its customer count and increased its staffing by 71% across Australia and New Zealand in 2018.

By iTWire's calculations, the company had about 820 employees at the end of 2017 and this grew to 1400 (a company-provided figure) by the end of last year.

A statement from the company said it had increased its revenue to a record amount, but provided no figures.

The firm, which is based in Carpinteria, California, said its Austrlian and New Zealand operations had established relationships with leading construction sector firms such as Prime Construction, MPA, Hutchinson Builders, Woolworths, SHAPE and PBS.

“Australia is an incredibly important market for us. As the first international presence outside the US, we have focused heavily on ensuring the Procore platform meets the specific needs of our customers in ANZ, and this investment is paying off with local growth in line with what we are experiencing in the US” said Tooey Courtemanche, founder and chief executive.

“Procore is rapidly scaling with our global headcount increasing from 300 to 1400 in the last three years. ANZ is an important part of our plans and we will continue to invest in product innovation, expanding our partner ecosystem and hiring and developing the best talent.”

Procore appointed Tom Karemacher as its APAC vice-president in February last year. The company now has 60 staff in Sydney.

Said Karemacher: “The construction sector in ANZ has very quickly identified the importance of collaboration, site to office connectivity and managing the construction lifecycle on one platform. Our customers are seeing the results through improved operating margin, improved workplace safety, reduced errors and rework costs.

“The last 12 months since joining Procore, it’s been incredibly fast-paced. Our local team has grown substantially, we have partnered with innovative ANZ technology companies, including Acuite, APE Mobile, Drawboard, FileBound Australia and SignOnSite, to integrate their solutions to our platform.

"We launched our inaugural Australian Innovation Lab, ensuring that our R&D team are solving the industry’s needs through meeting and gathering direct feedback, and insights from our ANZ customers.”

The statement said Procore ended 2018 with more than 6000 customers on projects in more than 100 countries.
