Education + Expo Pass

When builders and remodelers price, sell and execute projects, they have a specific margin in mind. Over the course of a project, several factors can reduce this margin—sometimes with business-ending effect. This advanced session will help you incorporate a straight forward, scalable and integrated purchasing system that connects the profit you thought you would make with the profit you actually make. We will review estimating and bidding, and help you connect your budgeted costs to actual costs by incorporating purchase orders and a trade/supplier management program. No matter what size your business is right now, you will leave with a road map to implementing a complete purchasing system.

  • Examine the ways margin can erode over the course of a project, and identify where to look to stop it.
  • Achieve a higher level of margin across projects by incorporating best practices in purchasing.
  • Implement a trade-partner and supplier program that reinforces the purchasing system changes they make in their businesses.

Participants must be registered for an Education + Expo Pass package or a 1-Day Education + Expo Pass package valid for the day of the session they wish to attend. Seating for Building Knowledge sessions will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Already registered? If you have already purchased your expo pass you can still purchase IBS Education by logging in to your registration using either your Confirmation ID and Last Name OR an Email Address and Password, then select “Upgrade Registration” on the menu page.
