HR / Labor Relations

If you are a member of MBI, you don’t want to miss this upcoming, free webinar.  Presenter, Russ Bollig of Multivista, will review useful apps and software solutions that directly impact your day-to-day responsibilities in the field and in the office.  Do you wish you had more time in the day?  Involving technology in your day-to-day routines can dramatically change your ability to do more work in less time and drive efficiency.  Your day revolves around workflows from managing change orders, to schedule, to material deliveries, the submittal process, all the way to punch list management.  Integrating new technology into your workflows and that of others on your team can sometimes be challenging, so this webinar will also cover ease of use, versus bells and whistles.
