AUS Procore

Taking construction to the cloud with Procore

Procore Technologies Inc. is a leading provider of cloud-based applications for the construction industry. Based in the US, Procore was a market leader locally and was making its first moves internationally by expanding into the Australia and New Zealand region. Procore partnered with Hotwire to launch in the ANZ market, and break through the noise in a market that was already serviced by a home-grown con-tech provider.

Procore did not want to be positioned as the ‘US giant’ entering a market merely to make a profit. Instead, it was essential that Procore was seen as a partner in the local industry – a long-term friend that would give back to the construction community and make a real investment to the future of the industry locally.
