BIG SKY, MT – Today RiverGuide for Construction Software (http://www.riverguideinc.com/construction)
and the Florida Home Builders' Association (FHBA) announced the launch of an on-line Home Builders' Technology Center for the Florida Home Builders Association. Through this partnership, RiverGuide has contributed its original construction software research and evaluation content to FHBA for use on their website.

The Home Builders' Technology Center provides a wealth of information for home builders, including a comprehensive directory of construction software vendors. RiverGuide’s insightful content offers best practice guides for software selection and implementation. This Construction Technology Center represents an ongoing effort by RiverGuide to help associations and their members make the right technology decisions.

"As one of the Southeast’s largest construction industry associations, the FHBA is always looking to meet the needs of our more than 21,000 members," said FHBA Director of Education and Training, Suzanne Cook. "This collaboration with RiverGuide will help our members improve their bottom line through the effective use of today's leading construction technologies."

“Companies of all sizes in the construction industry are learning that they must invest in new software systems to better manage their businesses," said Don Fornes, founder of RiverGuide. “However, most people aren't comfortable buying new technology. They face an enormous challenge in sorting through unfamiliar concepts and a dizzying range of options.”
