ALICE vs. Procore

At ALICE, we often get asked “what’s the difference between ALICE and “X” software”. Once in a while, Procore will come up in conversations, and while our two platforms serve completely different needs within the construction industry, we wanted to take a moment to briefly explain the differences.




Let’s start at the highest level


ALICE is generative construction scheduling software that utilizes artificial intelligence to optimize construction planning and scheduling. It offers a holistic, data-driven approach to planning and scheduling construction projects and is particularly powerful for complex, large-scale projects.

In fact, at this point in time, ALICE is primarily used on projects with a construction value above $50M (and often much higher), and while commercial GCs use ALICE, the software is used mostly on infrastructure and industrial projects. ALICE can be generally considered a “point solution” as it focuses on planning and scheduling needs.

ALICE offers a clean, user-friendly experience, which makes digitizing construction means and methods as  recipes, scheduling and optimizing  a construction project feel virtually effortless. ALICE also makes it incredibly easy to reschedule a task or change project parameters.

About Procore

Procore, on the other hand, is a construction management platform designed to streamline construction project management tasks. It provides tools for project management, financials, quality and safety, and field productivity.

Procore aims to connect all members of a project team, including architects, contractors, and owners, on a single platform. It can be considered a “horizontal” platform solution that serves dozens of workflows, from managing RFIs, inspections and incidents on the jobsite to managing invoices for the trades, as well as their overall productivity.

Although Procore’s user interface can take some time to get used to, it is an invaluable tool that general contractors should have at their disposal. Procore’s various features, like their Action Plans, allow users to maximize the efficiency of their construction activity.

These two solutions do not compete with each other at all. Procore does not offer a solution for optimizing the planning and scheduling of a project. And similarly, ALICE does not solve for the various construction workflows that Procore focuses on.

ALICE and Procore could be both part of an owner or a general contractor’s modern tech stack.

Why choose ALICE over Procore for construction?

As mentioned earlier, ALICE and Procore serve completely different needs within the construction industry. So there is no need to choose one over the other. Both solutions can be part of a modern construction tech stack, optimizing owners' and contractors’ likelihood of success on their construction projects.
