WEBINAR DESCRIPTION 
Information technology and automation have converted construction project estimating from an arcane and sometimes mysterious art to an art-and-science process that can be standardized (individually, for each company) and reliably repeated. That's a game-changer that leads to more winning bids, better project management, enhanced cash flow and overall improvements in management visibility and control. But not all construction companies have gotten the memo; too many still rely on outdated estimating tools and processes that leave them unable to scale their businesses, and vulnerable to more technologically-empowered competitors.
