What It’s About:
Mobile technology is evolving quickly with many tools that are beneficial to the building industry. In this session, you will see how mobile devices - paired with design software - can help you increase productivity in your business. Hear how technologies such as tablets and laser measurers can reduce time in the field and how this information can then be shared with desktop software to generate detailed construction drawings, 3D renderings and virtual tours to help sell the project. The tips and techniques provided will transform the way in which you do business. Your staff will go from using a pencil and paper in the field to using everyday technology to quickly measure and map out the as-built - boosting productivity and profit.

What You'll Learn:
Learn how new mobile technology can help you quickly and accurately recreate existing floor plans or assemble new floor plans while in the field.
Determine how to integrate the as-built floor plan from a mobile device to your office design platforms to increase productivity and communication.
Understand how to provide design options and upsell opportunities as 3D renderings which gives the client the ability to evaluate different design alternatives.
