Roofing Technology Think Tank (RT3), a group of progressive roofing professionals focused on technology solutions for the roofing industry, has announced activities scheduled for the International Roofing Expo® (IRE) 2020.
RT3 member KPost Roofing & Waterproofing, based in Dallas, Texas, will host members of RT3 at their corporate headquarters. The meetup will allow members to tour the facility of the official roofing partner of the Dallas Cowboys where they will learn about the types of technology that KPost uses in their operations.
RT3 will also host an educational panel on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, at 7:45 a.m. The session is titled Contractor to Contractor: Technology Innovation Panel and features five contractors sharing their successes and challenges with implementing technology into sales and marketing, operations, back office, health and safety, and recruiting.
The panel will be moderated by RT3 member Heidi Ellsworth, partner at RoofersCoffeeShop®, and attendees will be able to:
- Evaluate what technologies progressive contractors are using to help their business.
- Identify what challenges came with implementation of technology and how they overcame it.
- Evaluate how technology can make their business more efficient, streamlined, and more profitable.
- Meet other contractors who you can reach out to after the presentation for support and guidance in selecting technologies to implement in your business.
The panel participants include RT3 contractor members Steve Little, president of KPOST Roofing and Waterproofing; Ken Kelly, president of Kelly Roofing; Gregg Wallick, Best Roofing; Michelle Boykin, COO of Rackley Roofing; and Josey Parks, CEO of J Wales Enterprises.
“The contractors on the panel are completely honest and open about how technology has impacted their businesses and what it took to get where they are today,” stated Karen Edwards, RT3 director. “They are leading the way in using technology and want to educate and encourage other contractors to join them for the overall advancement of the roofing industry. They will discuss augmented reality, robotics, artificial intelligence, software stacks, and more, all technologies that they are using daily in their own businesses.”
