  • True Role of Construction Software with Chandler Brooks

    14 FEB 2024 · For an electrical contractor, choosing the right software can be daunting. Chandler Brooks, Director of Industry Partnerships & Alliances at Procore Technologies, joins me during the NECA tradeshow to share his perspective on what an EC should consider when thinking about which software to implement in their business. What I like about our conversation is how much Chandler thinks about the human side of construction. There’s a lot of burnout and stress on all involved in the business of constructing and maintaining our buildings and infrastructure. This stress and burnout should be top of mind when beginning the journey of sourcing the right software for your business.
