Dexter + Chaney added 18 new sessions to the line-up for its 12th annual users’ conference April 16-18 at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center, Seattle. Several new sessions will give conference-goers a “sneak preview” of features planned for the latest version of the company’s Spectrum Construction Software. Others will be tailored to the specific needs of project managers and other operations personnel.
Preview classes for Spectrum Version 13 will address new features planned for the software’s equipment, preventive maintenance, work order and service contract modules. New classes for project managers and other operations personnel will cover, among other topics, “20 Ways Spectrum Helps Operations,” “10 Things Project Managers Can Do To Improve Change Order Performance” and “Understanding The WIP Schedule For Project Managers.”
Altogether, the conference will offer more than 40 sessions, including the popular two-part series, “50 Things You Didn’t Know Spectrum Could Do.” Conference-goers also will attend roundtable discussions of their industry groups, where they’ll share tips and ideas with each other and Dexter + Chaney personnel about Spectrum.
