NEW YORK, Aug. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- AXA XL's North America Construction insurance business has teamed up with Procore, a leading provider of project management software, to help contractors step up productivity and project risk management. Procore joins the Tech Library of AXA XL's Construction Ecosystem, an integrated digital platform helping clients manage risks on their jobsites and across their organizations.
According to Gary Kaplan, president of AXA XL's North America Construction business, "There are so many new technologies available on the market today it's hard for contractors to determine which is best for their operations. In creating our Construction Ecosystem's Tech Library, we evaluated and tested a broad spectrum of technologies, like Procore, to determine which could have the biggest risk-reducing impact on our clients' risk management efforts. Procore has tremendous risk-reducing potential."
"In today's construction market, contractors continue to face tighter profit margins, deadlines and labor markets that can make project management more challenging than ever before," explained Justin Gress, AXA XL's Head of Strategic Operations. "Proven technologies like Procore's can help our clients keep tighter control on their project management to help keep projects on schedule, avoid costly delays and subsequent losses."
"Procore's platform provides one place for project teams to work together with an integrated set of construction applications that are mobile-ready for the field," said Danny Seigle, Vice President, Business Development & Marketplace at Procore.
