One of the most informative aspect at the Dexter + Chaney’s Connect 2017 User Conference, is what is called the Roundtable. Roundtable discussions are where we hear from our clients directly. They give incredible insight into what they like about the software, what’s working for them, and more importantly, what’s not. Dexter + Chaney welcome all suggestions from clients for improvements or changes to Spectrum. It is these Roundtable discussions that have helped improve Spectrum Construction Software to the powerhouse platform it is today.
Some Aspects of the Conference include;
One-on-ones: Product experts and educational mentors are available for specialized training on personal software issues or problems your company is experiencing.
Computer Lab: An amazing opportunity to work hands on with Spectrum, while support experts are on hand to answer any question you have or to explain a new functionality.

Social Events: Besides learning new things and brushing up on old abilities, there are two evening functions where all clients can meet other clients, industry experts and Dexter + Chaney’s amazing staff.
