    Hi all,

    I'm a Marketing Coordinator for a small NA software company that specializes in providing business management solutions for crane & rigging, heavy machinery moving, and millwright companies. Our all-in-one software features CRM, quoting, estimating, dispatching, tracking, and invoicing capabilities, and is configurable to meet the unique needs of each individual business.

    However, I'm not here to sell, I'm here to learn. I'm completely new to the construction services world, and I'm interested in finding out more about the people, their experiences, and the equipment used. Other than the odd tradeshow, it can be difficult to interact with target audiences, so I figured joining this forum might be a great way to gain some valuable insight.

    Paul

    I would add a sprinkle of some Cajun spice to that popcorn, may have to up the level of the beverage to adult level, maybe an IPA!

    True especially if there is one with a "Q" in the name of the poster!
