Future-Planning Technology Strategies in Uncertain Times


Duration:60 minutes


What can contractors do today to prepare for tomorrow? The economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused contractors of all sizes to reexamine business practices and invest in everything from accounting overhauls to cloud-based collaboration. But where do we go from here? 

This webinar will consider what strategies contractors are using to plan ahead in this unusual time. Building a future-ready strategy is on every contractor’s mind right now, and the firms that have already shed legacy systems and “we’ve always done it this way” traditions are ahead of the game.

The content of this webinar is produced and directed by the event's sponsor.
