Forum FAQ

Every two years, aSa invites all client companies enrolled in the aSa Subscription Plan to the aSa Software Forum. We use this time to review our software, provide skills training, exchange ideas and concepts, and plan for future development. Your participation will help you to get the most out of your system, both now and into the future.
50th Anniversary CelebrationIn 2019, we celebrate 50 years of service to our customers. We have special events planned for the forum to commemorate the milestone.
aSa.Studio. A huge focus of the forum sessions will be aSa.Studio, our next generation web-based product. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to see the tools we have developed, try them for yourself at hands-on workshops, and give us your feedback for future development.
Event App. A mobile app, available to all attendees, puts the entire aSa Software Forum at your fingertips. Create and save your own personal forum schedule, access all “handouts,” and interact with other attendees right on your phone or mobile device.
The daily sessions are 2-hour classes focused on specific aSa solutions. These classes are designed so that you can select the sessions that best fit your needs and interests. Learn more on the Sessions and Events pages.
Training Classes. The classes are geared specifically to helping you become more productive with aSa ex tools.
Hands-On Workshops. In these sessions, you'll get a chance to practice the skills you learn. We'll have computers loaded with aSa software. You and a group of your peers will work together on various exercises using aSa products.
aSa Q&A. Discuss aSa usage, integration, and configuration with the experts. Representatives from each of aSa’s departments will be on-hand to answer your questions and discuss the ways in which aSa’s Complete Rebar Solution can work harder for your organization.
Special Events. In addition, all forum attendees are encouraged to join us for special events, such as evening hospitality nights and our special anniversary dinner.
We recommend sending at least one representative from each key area of your business, including estimating, detailing, production, and accounting. Not only will you learn better ways to use the software you have now, your ideas will shape future versions of aSa solutions. As much of our focus will be on customer feedback and future development, we encourage owners, supervisors, and decision-makers to attend.
The benefit of networking with others in your industry is also very important. For example, contract estimators and detailers often acquire new clients at the forum, and fabricators share many helpful ideas that can lead to operational improvements and bigger profits. Ideally, every operating location served by aSa should be represented by at least one person.
