Technology Spotlight Series: DADO Webinar - Friday, May 29, 2020 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET


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?". 

This tool provides a construction document management system with the ability to search and retrieve documents instantly by typing or using a voice search. This system will allow contractors to become more productive by not wasting time trying to search for a physical document in a pile of papers. Save time and bridge the divide between the field and the office. Search for shop drawings, plans, specifications, submittals, spool drawings, and more. 

This program will be delivered by Jake Olsen, Co-Founder from DADO and moderated by Josh Bone, NECA's Executive Director of Industry Innovation and Lonnie Cumpton, NECA's Director of Construction Manufacturing.

Jake Olsen, P.E. is currently the Co-founder and CEO of DADO, a construction software company that provides a voice-powered search for project data and documents.  Jake was previously VP of Engineering at DEWALT where he built a team dedicated to developing and providing software and consulting services for architects, engineers and contractors.  Jake has worked in the industry as an engineer and entrepreneur for over 20 years both in the USA and abroad developing new products, software and businesses to transform the way we build.  Jake holds a master’s degree in Structural Engineering and is a licensed Professional Civil Engineer in California.​
