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.
