What's on the Burner
 Quotes on The Quote
These days, construction needs access to all project data instantly. To enable contractors and service professionals to create quick and easy quotes o the go, JobFLEX,, Rockford, Mich., has released a new mobile app-complete with images, quick access material lists, and an array of customization options. 

Documents created in the Android app are highly customizable, and include the ability to provide photos along with the estimates created. Users can also build and edit their materials list and line-item costs on the fly, allowing them to build quotes quickly with simple drop-down lists.

Letter From the President

We had a great turn out for the January meeting and some new faces also. New attendees are always welcome.

Our presentation was by Adam Huhn and Ryan Fisher from Building Point Midwest.

They covered Drones, BIM, and other High-Tech Virtual Construction Resources and how they integrated into the construction world. We learned some of the benefits in today's world and caused us to think how the future may play out.

Plan on attending the February meeting which will be held at Concords office in Chicago. I'm sure you will find it interesting as Corey S Zussma from Pepper Construction will be sharing with us.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Dave Westfall
