What construction technology is right for you? As technology companies continuously flood the construction industry with offerings, it has become a major challenge for construction companies to answer that question.

To help our members solve this challenge, the NECA Innovation team will be hosting a weekly webinar series highlighting fully-vetted construction technologies. Each session will be a sales-free educational overview of key functionalities and expert analysis on how a technology can be used in your business. Our goal is to provide you with the information you need to help answer the question, "Is this the right technology for my business?"

Whether you're pricing an estimate, detailing a model, or fabricating materials, constructible content forms the backbone for your construction workflow process. Join us in this webinar to learn how content-enabled workflows powered by rich data help electrical contractors to be more accurate and efficient.

Presenting this webinar will be Ron King, James Reis, and Brook Stewart with Trimble MEP.
