As part of the federal government’s pre-budget consultation process, the National Trade Contractors Council of Canada (NTCCC) provided a written submission, and outlined three recommendations for the 2021 federal budget.

For service contractors, technology can play a key role in every function of the business, from daily dispatch to long-term project management. As powerful as it is though, it’s an investment of time, money and resources to ultimately transform those operations, sales, and customer service.

This webinar will explore how technology solutions can help service contractors level up in these areas and more, and just as importantly, how to find the right platform to handle it.

Presented by Woody Woodall, this webinar is a must-see for service contractors.

Join us on March 4 at noon ET.
