Computer Labs at IBS Showcase Builder Technology
The NAHB: Builder Software — Computer Labs at the 2008 International Builders' Show® and nextBUILD™ in Orlando next month will feature vendors demonstrating the latest in builder technology form-fitted to address the business needs of the builder.
Vendors will be available for the labs ― 90-minute sessions held at various times on Feb. 13-15 in the Orange County Convention Center.
The labs are interactive and vendor representatives are available for one-on-one assistance to answer any questions builders may have.
The computer labs allow builders to test programs before they decide to make a purchase so builders can find the right technology for their businesses without going through the hassle and frustration of buying a product that’s not the right fit for their company needs. There is no requirement to purchase any products at the labs.
NAHB staff also will conduct a computer lab to demonstrate and assist members with the many valuable resources available on the NAHB Web site, www.nahb.org. NAHB staff will be on hand to help members find information written by builders for builders on Biztools, NAHB’s business management tools Web pages, and navigate through NAHB’s revised “Back to Basics Toolkit for a Challenging Market” for key business tips and more.
