The Focused on Agile Systems and Technology (FAST) Remodeler Live event is the premier software and business technology conference for home remodeling pros. The conference offers contractors and home remodelers a place to see current tech through the eyes of their peers and clients. Through educational sessions and hands-on software demonstrations, attendees can gain new ideas for streamlining processes, boosting client experience and increasing profit. Read on to learn the top takeaways Leap got from the event.
Patrick kicked off the FAST Remodeler Live event and gave a great presentation where he opened with this problem [2272.5 / 25.25 + 10]. He gave away $100 to the first person who could solve it. Most people reached for their cell phone or calculator to figure it out.
His point was that when you see a problem clearly and know the right tool/software to solve it, you use it instantly and reap the reward. However, most business problems are not this clear, they’re blurry (thus the shirt he wore). They require you to know your business, explore solutions and leverage the appropriate tool.
He also talked about knowing the importance of operating states and understanding which one your business is in.
Amy said one of her main frustrations with implementing technology in her business is the recurring charges. She fears that the company is not getting the full value of each software they use.
Amy suggests to inspect what you expect, lay out your customer journey and see where you have a need for software, check in with your software providers to see if they have any new products or services (Is there overlap between two providers?), and use software to its fullest potential.
Michael said as owners, you may sense fear and trepidation from your team when you get back from a technology event. To help empower your employees and get them excited as you are, he suggests to find the pain points in your sales process, find a dedicated person to know your tech stack, and bridge the gap between employees who will be using the software every day and leadership.
One of Tim’s biggest takeaways was, “If you have good technology with great people, you will succeed.” He went on to talk about the importance of investing in your people alongside technology because they are the ones that will be managing and using it every day. Tim had other great advice such as to expect, build and scale for constant change, nothing happens without great people, build trust and adoption through transparency and empowerment, and tap into the motivations of your team to get them to see the vision of your company.
In between presentations at the event, Adam Shampaine, CEO of Homefix & Leap Advisory Board Member, met up with us during the event. Check out what he has to say about using Leap in his sales process in his video testimonial!
“We were so excited to have the first-ever conference of this kind in our home, Baltimore. With that, we wanted to make sure that attendees, sponsors and speakers felt welcomed in Charm City. We organized a welcome reception, Welcome on the Waterfront, with the help of friends and partners, G4, Ingage, Dividend, EverConnect and GTR,” says Partnerships Marketing Manager Kate Ratcliffe. “Leap wants to empower contractors, that is everything to us, so connecting the dots with partnerships like these for our customers is imperative. It was awesome to see all the partners and attendees connecting, laughing and enjoying time together before the conference even started, it was beautiful!”
