WEBINAR: SlatPlanner: Linking Physical and Digital Planning @ webinar
Sep 27 @ 11:00 am – 11:30 am

LCI_Congress_2019_Banner_600x222BuildFore SlatPlanner Stacked 280x125-01_New-01

Despite recent advances in technology, many projects still turn to physical, collaborative planning; with great success. However, wall planning requires more manual maintenance and is difficult to track. Digital planning makes analysis easy, though, it is more difficult to get full participation and buy in. SlatPlanner is the link between digital and physical planning. Making its debut at LCI Congress, SlatPlanner is a hybrid hardware and software solution that puts the schedule info into the hands of your field supervisors. In this webinar, get a sneak peek at this innovative and affordable system and learn how it will streamline your scheduling experience.

Presenters:

Steve Moore and Daniel Fahmi Soliman – Buildfore

Today, there’s an app for everything and that technology is great, except when it hinders productivity instead of helping. Construction Schedulers Steve Moore and Daniel Fahmi Soliman have dedicated themselves to creating hybrid solutions that allow technology to enhance workflows while embracing and improving the physical experience.
