Properly leveraging technology to achieve your strategic business objectives
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (March 12, 2018)  — Construction Business Owner, the leading business magazine for contractors, is pleased to announce a no-cost webinar presented in partnership with Viewpoint.
The live, online event, "How to Master Technology Strategic Planning," will take place April 18, 2018, at 1 p.m. EST. Registration is free at

Embracing new technologies is no longer just a way to get a leg up on competitors within the construction industry, it is a must for growth, satisfied clients and efficient operations. With the ever-evolving technologies available to construction business owners, come greater responsibilities, costs and rewards. Owners must now stay abreast new trends, allot significantly more financial resources to fund these technological trends and train employees to implement them well. While this is quite the task, the benefits match, if not outweigh, the amount of work and funds applied to reach the goal. To complete this task and reap the advantages, it is imperative that a technology strategy be put into place.

Join us for this webinar, sponsored by Viewpoint, to hear speaker Jay Snyder explore the important process of strategic technology planning to ensure proper leveraging of technology as a means of achieving business objectives, including: 

  • Why business strategy is enhanced when companies have a supportive technology strategy 
  • Why businesses in today's environment need a technology strategy to properly serve their market and fully unlock the capabilities of their resources 
  • How to framework an exceptional technology strategy 

Jay Snyder is the technology practice leader at FMI Corporation and has worked in the engineering and construction industry his entire career, with experience as a construction project executive; corporate director of planning, design and construction for a healthcare system; founder and managing partner of a risk management tech startup company; and valued business consultant. He has an extensive background in SaaS technology, supply chain management and operational logistics. As an industry speaker, Snyder covers business best practices, critical facilities, owner/client relationships and digital/tech transformation, particularly of companies in engineering and construction. Snyder holds a bachelor's degree in construction management from SUNY ESF at Syracuse University and an MBA from Emory University.

The 1-hour, no-cost, live webinar includes a 45-minute presentation, followed by a 15-minute question and answer session. Visit to register today!
