The Tech Alliance introduces small and mid-sized contractors and subcontractors to construction technology solutions to help with everything from preconstruction and financial management to field collaboration, project management, time tracking and more. Tech Alliance companies will also collaborate on resources for ABC members, including beta testing, free technology programs and educational webinars, as well as provide ABC’s 69 chapters with access to technology products used in the field by its contractor members. The technology products, which include Sage construction solutions, will also be available through ABC’s Tech Marketplace.
