CloudFirst to Deliver a Series of Building Industry Technology Webinars Hosted by North State BIA

CloudFirst partners with the North State Building Industry Association to deliver technology webinars to builders, assisting them to improve business processes by moving to cloud based infrastructure and services.

CloudFirst Technology Solutions Inc., announced today a partnership with the North State Building Industry Association to deliver a series of technology webinars in 2016 geared toward helping building industry executives understand the benefits of cloud based infrastructure and services. CloudFirst is a premier partner of the Microsoft Community Connections Team and has deep expertise that will greatly empower building executives to be more effective through technology.

“As the building industry becomes more competitive and teams more distributed” says Dennis Gentles, CEO of CloudFirst, “we are truly excited to deliver educational content that helps builders see ways to leverage cloud based technologies that immediately impacts the bottom line while delivering modern solutions that differentiate themselves, increase efficiency, increase productivity, and that ultimately improves the entire end-to-end process.”

"We’re looking forward to this exciting partnership with CloudFirst,” said Michael Strech, President and CEO of the North State BIA. “As technology continues to not only advance but also play a larger role in our industry, it is absolutely imperative that our members receive the training they need in order to stay ahead of the game.”

CIO Magazine reported last month that the majority of tech executives in organizations plan to foster a cloud-first strategy for enterprise in 2016 (according to a new survey from Bitglass.). The survey was conducted with 92 CIOs and IT leaders at the Gartner Symposium ITxpo in November of 2015, and the findings were released last month. It was clear many respondents reported cost savings in 2015 as a result of using cloud-based SaaS applications, such as Microsoft's Office 365.

Through its partnership with the North State BIA, CloudFirst hopes to assist builders to achieve similar benefits. The technology webinars are scheduled each month though out 2016, and will be open to both members and non-member of the North State BIA.
