A Demonstration of Contractor or Electrical can be arranged by contacting Luv@expocad.com and will take approximately 1 to 2 hours depending on the size of the group and follow up Q&A.
What is Unique about CONTRACTOR™?
Pioneering automation for AutoCAD®. Difficult and tedious tasks that once took days or weeks to complete are now automatic functions such as windowing off an area and auto-filling with smart booths. Contractor drastically reduces design time and overhead expenses, improves quality of output and automatically improves customer satisfaction.
Its important to note that General Service Contractors are now managing all their events with this software. When their client uses the show organizers version, EXPOCAD® desktop or OnDemand, the GSC's drawing will sync with their clients and update the master file automatically. The auditing functions include all exhibitor data, booth moves, changes & modifications too.
