SharePoint's Two-Way API Integrates Document Libraries Right into Procore
Procore customers can now automatically update SharePoint and Procore libraries simultaneously with a new SharePoint Two-Way Sync integration and connector, built on Procore Construction OS, that is available in the Procore App Marketplace.
SharePoint Two-Way Sync shares and mirrors files and documents in both SharePoint and Procore libraries through a new connector created by HingePoint, a Dallas-based company that integrates and develops systems such as SharePoint and Procore.
The SharePoint Two-Way Sync brings Microsoft’s enterprise-grade document libraries right into Procore with two-way, real-time sync of folders and documents. When a folder is updated in SharePoint, it updates in Procore. If a file is deleted in Procore, it is deleted in SharePoint. Etc.
“This is not an embedded form that anyone can access, it's an actual API integration that lets SharePoint and Procore libraries mirror one another, while having the security of both systems," HingePoint CEO and Founder Bryce Finnerty said. “If you are a user with rights to a Procore project and you’re a SharePoint user with rights to a document library, you can access the synced files."
A growing number of construction companies use SharePoint as their system of record to store important data about employees, contracts, and project status. This connector eliminates multiple repositories of documents in both Procore and SharePoint, and connects the construction unit to the rest of the company.
The new integration that HingePoint provides for Procore reflects each organization’s commitment to openness and building out the construction technology ecosystem. With the new connector, companies can automatically and securely sync files between Procore and SharePoint or Office 365, which will save time and confusion when managing project documents.
It also creates better collaboration with the teams that are not in the construction space.
HingePoint integrates software so data can move from one system to another. They specialize in building custom tools that detect and collect data, so a business can project trends about their business.
Leveraging SharePoint’s API with Procore’s open system, this integration automates document sync, saving time and the effort of updating two systems that track and report documents. This integration allows everyone – from the owner to the general contractor – to have access to relevant documents needed to finish a project.
“We’re excited for the SharePoint connector from HingePoint to launch on the App Marketplace, as it will have an immediate impact for our users who will be able to take advantage of it,” said Laura Paciano, Senior Manager, Partner Programs, at Procore. “We first began talking with HingePoint about an integration at Groundbreak, which was just over five months ago, so for the connector to now be ready is a testament to their commitment to the construction industry and value of the App Marketplace.”
