Beta Testing – As a Beta Tester learn technology from the experts and help your business.

By Heidi J. Ellsworth

At RoofersCoffeeShop, we have the amazing opportunity to connect the roofing industry. Where the Industry Meets, is not just a tagline but what really happens every day on the Coffee Shop. We get to work with world-renown companies like Trimble.

Though best known for GPS technology, Trimble integrates a wide range of positioning technologies including GPS, laser, optical and inertial technologies with application software, wireless communications, and services to provide complete commercial solutions. Its integrated solutions allow customers to collect, manage and analyze complex information faster and easier, making them more productive, efficient and profitable.

Trimble is bringing their expertise to the construction industry. Currently, they offer an important app for developing punch lists, Defects Pro. The Trimble Defects Pro mobile app is built with you in mind. They have made it easy to capture and document defects on any roofing job, share them with your team, get things done and complete your project ahead of time.

Now they are launching Contractor WorkZone. This new app will make running a small roofing business easy and efficient, but they are looking for feedback on an ongoing basis. As an RCS Partner, Trimble is excited to work with our contractors and see what you think. If you have a company with 10 or less employees, you will be a great fit.

But why help? Here are 5 great reasons from Betabound (https://www.betabound.com/7-great-reasons-become-beta-tester/ ) that will help you be an instrumental part of bringing important technology to the roofing industry and your company.

1. You learn about new technologies (before anyone else).

If you’re a tech enthusiast or an early adopter, testing the latest technology before it’s publicly available is a huge benefit to be a beta tester. While you’re usually not able to publicly discuss the product or its cool features due to non-disclosure agreement (NDA) restrictions, it’s a great feeling to try out a new product before it hits the market.

2. You contribute to the quality of the products you enjoy.

Think about all the technology products you use every day to make your job and life easier. As a beta tester, your feedback helps to shape the future of the products you love. You play a direct role in improving that product and influencing where it’s going in the future. Not only is this personally rewarding, but it can also have a huge impact on your life if that product is integral to your business or personal life.

3. You enhance your professional and personal knowledge.

Learning the new features of products, you care about before they’re released is a great way to improve your professional skills and expand your horizons. You have the chance to become an expert on a product before anyone else, which can be incredibly useful in your career or your favorite hobby.

4. You can network with people who share similar interests.

Many technology products appeal to a specific group of people that you might not have the chance to meet otherwise. A good beta test provides a unique opportunity to be social and network with these like-minded individuals who share your interests.

5. You have fun!

Perhaps most importantly, beta testing is fun! You get to play with new technology, see what it can do, and talk with others who are just as passionate about it. That’s pretty hard to beat!
