Builder Technology Summit Launched

Top-200 Builders to Meet in Arizona to Collaborate and Share Insights Into the Technology Tools They Have Leveraged to Streamline Their Organizations

Denver — April 5, 2016 — Sponsors of the Builder Technology Summit announced today that Avid Ratings, BuilderMT-Sales Simplicity, CG Visions, Hyphen Solutions, Microsoft/Western Computer, MiTek, Punchlist Manager, and Spec It Up will collectively host the Builder Technology Summit, in October, 2016.

At the Summit, many of the most-successful top-200 homebuilders will join with these elite homebuilder software providers for three days of workshops, technology demonstrations and sharing of insights as to how home building workflows are best optimized by technology for better margins, faster cycle-times, optimized structures, and efficient staffing.

The Builder Technology Summit™ will be held at the Talking Stick Resort in Phoenix, in October, 2016.

The Builder Technology Summit™ will also feature opening remarks by MiTek’s CEO and Chairman, Tom Manenti. In a return engagement, Chip Bell, a highly regarded speaker on customer-advocacy, will be the keynote speaker. He will address leading topics confronting homebuilders today, such as the labor force issues and the rising costs for labor, among other topics.

Adding to the wide-ranging activities, on October 3, the Monday preceding the Summit, Fletcher Groves and Clark Ellis will present a Pipeline Seminar™. Link.

Attendees to all the Summit event will learn how seemingly independent parts of their home building operations can actually work in concert through the use of integrated production homebuilding technology, as Summit sponsors reveal systematic approaches to solving problems, from the office to field operations.

Additionally, the Summit will offer builders time-savings tools and tactics to address the rising costs of labor and shortages of skilled labor. There will be a special focus on truss and wall-panel components as a means to drive out unneeded costs in framing labor, while improving the quality of the final product, and decrease engineering costs through component manufacturing.

“This is the premier home building technology event of 2016, and we expect an overflow crowd,” said Tom Gebes, President of BuilderMT and Sales Simplicity. “We have early bird pricing in place now, but space is limited. Register today and reserve your spot.”
