By Dan Kamys
Algonquin, Ill., January 23, 2020 – The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) is excited to announce today’s rollout of a digital scoring app, which will be used at The World of Concrete/Masonry on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 in the Bronze Lot during MASONRY MADNESS®, a highlight of the conference.
“We are very excited to unveil this new technology, which we developed to automate our scoring processes for our Masonry Skills Challenge and Fastest Trowel on the Block competitions. It will save over an hour in judging time and help to eliminate potential errors in the scoring process,” said Jeff Buczkiewicz, President of the MCAA.
MCAA is proud to feature Sprint, the association’s Member Perks Program cellphone provider, as part of the debut of the technology. Sprint will be providing network access for judges through the program. Judges will be issued Sonim XP8 Ultra Rugged smartphones—designed specifically for use on jobsites—for use during scoring.
“Sonim is very pleased to support the MCAA and MASONRY MADNESS®,” said John Graff, Chief Marketing Officer at Sonim. “Designed to withstand the rigors of the harshest construction sites, it is only natural that we would want to support the new digital scoring for the Skills Challenge and Fastest Trowel On The Block with our ultra-rugged smartphone.”
