The Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress adds new member
Encite Development Group Inc. (FCS Roofing Software), Woodstock, Ill., has joined The Roofing Industry Alliance for
Progress at the Service Provider level.
Encite has developed a growing set of enterprise applications to streamline outdated processes, enhance project
transparency, improve customer communications, and help sales and services teams to do their jobs better.
The Alliance was established within the National Roofing Foundation in 1996 to create an endowment fund to serve as a
resource for the roofing industry and its customers.
Alliance members have committed more than $12.4 million to fund projects such as educational partnerships with three of
the country's top construction management schools to expose college students to roofing as a career choice; sponsorship
of a national construction management student design competition; a national survey of roofing workers; the NRCA Roof
Application Training Program series; a study to examine what the industry will look like in 20 years; and support for
Florida International University's Wall of Wind program, which is a full-scale destructive testing facility intended to
better replicate roof performance during high-wind conditions.
To make the Alliance work, member participation is vital, and the Alliance offers different levels of membership to
encourage firms of all sizes to join and have a voice in determining the roofing industry's future.
