Meet BIG at Viewpoint Conference

As an experienced Viewpoint partner, Business Information Group is excited to sponsor and participate in this year’s conference. Having worked with over 900 construction firms in the United States, we’ve gained some insights into how to best use and customize Viewpoint to meet your company’s needs. We are excited to share these insights with you in training sessions or at our booth.
