With the construction industry in a constant stream of development and change, contractors must take advantage of the tools that can help them gain a competitive edge. Maintaining a successful business requires a solid business platform that helps you efficiently manage all areas of finance and operations. Whether you serve diverse markets, or you’re a self -performing contractor or design-build, every construction business needs the right products that fit its needs. The importance of project management, document control and strong project management tools tied to accounting can help you reduce risk, pinpoint potential issues on a project, and give you clear line of sight into your project profitability.

As a component of CBO’s continuing Webinar Series, “Managing Diversification for Specialty Contractors,” sponsored by Viewpoint Construction Software, will be held October 9, 2014 at 1 p.m. EST.
