Constellation HomeBuilder Systems named to Constructech 50 for 2013


We are excited to announce that Constellation has again been recognized for outstanding and ongoing contributions to the home building industry, named to the Constructech 50.

The Constructech 50, published in the July/Aug issue of Constructech magazine, is a listing of the most influential construction technology providers with a strong and ongoing market presence, as determined by Constructech’s editorial team. This is the sixth year in a row that Constellation has been named to the Constructech 50.

Construction professionals must often evaluate what technology can do for their company; asking where money should be invested, and what trends to watch,” says Mike Carrozzo, chief editor, Constructech. “ The 2013 Constructech 50 is representative of the providers that can address such questions and will work to implement the solutions a company needs in order to provide answers.”

Big Data, Big Opportunity

Constructech sees data, and the ability to effectively report on that data, as the next great hurdle for technology providers to the construction industry:

Then there is the coming trend around “Big Data.” While such a term might not seem fitting to all organizations, the idea of data—no matter what it’s proverbial “size” shakes out to be—still remains vital for the long run. It’s no longer enough to simply fall in love with the idea of being able to collect data from multiple touch points. Nowadays, it’s all about the process of storing, analyzing, and acting upon such data. 

[...] In this coming age of “Big Data,” the process of getting to your information without having to incur the high cost and outlandish level of frustration associated with data bridges will be more essential than ever before. 

Constellation HomeBuilder Systems is your trusted partner to aid home builders with this goal of capturing information and using it to be more efficient and effective builders. Many Constellation solutions capture customer information beginning from the “yes, send me more information” web form all the way through the sales process, production process, and warranty process. This mean you have a complete and accurate snapshot of your customer in one database.

With all your data in one place, reporting is both simple and powerful (and actionable, and auditable, etc.). Take the next step with Constellation.

Eight years ago, Constellation’s team of developers completed the first version of a mobile scheduling application called OnLocation-Schedule, allowing homebuilders to access and control their company-wide schedules and tasks while on the job site. All of a sudden, builders could view and change the build schedule from their Blackberry, from anywhere. We applied for a patent on this mobile scheduling technology, and we have finally been awarded that patent!

We would like to congratulate Sorin Lungu, who led the development team on this project. Sorin’s patent illustrates our dedication to builder efficiency, maximizing your effectiveness whether you sit at your desk or supervise worksites.

Increasing productivity by scheduling on handheld devices has continued to evolve at Constellation, and we are very proud to be leading the homebuilding software industry. Location-based scheduling is just the beginning! Our development team works tirelessly every day to improve the way that you use technology from website to warranty.

Constellation HomeBuilder Systems is the leading provider of software solutions for the residential construction industry in North America.

We build software that helps you build homes.
