Seattle, May 2, 2012: Dexter + Chaney’s ( www.dexterchaney.com) 2012 Users’ Conference drew nearly 350 representatives from 175 construction companies across all segments of the construction industry to Bell Harbor International Conference Center on the Seattle Waterfront. Details on the construction software conference sessions, speakers, and events can be found at http://www.dexterchaney.com/news-events/users-conference.
This year’s curriculum included 49 unique courses across six tracks of study on a variety of topics applicable to construction industry professionals. Attendees heard from guest speakers on topics ranging from improving and sustaining cash flow, best practices for fuel management, fostering strategic leadership within an organization, and leveraging Microsoft Excel® to analyze data.
Many Dexter + Chaney software users were drawn to the 2012 conference to attend classes on the company’s recent software releases: Spectrum version 14 and Venture™ Project Collaboration. This year’s conference saw a 15 percent uptick in attendance over 2011 numbers.
Dexter + Chaney software users had many opportunities to participate in hands-on demonstrations of Spectrum® Construction Software version 14, the latest web-based version of the company’s core construction management product. Version 14 offers users unprecedented “anywhere - any device” access to the complete functionality of Spectrum through a web browser interface. Their new award winning Venture product was also on display and featured in a track of courses dedicated to construction operations.
The theme of the conference was “Connect 2012,” and the courses, specialty sessions and guest speakers were chosen with this theme in mind. “The goal for this year’s conference was about forging connections – from Dexter + Chaney to our clients, by allowing clients to better understand their software, and across financial and operations groups within construction companies,” said John Chaney, Dexter + Chaney co-founder and president. “It’s also very gratifying to see increased conference attendance year over year.”
