NEWSTAR Review

Patrick Bukszar
Director of Construction Services
Essex Homes Southeast, Inc.

Qualico started using Constellation’s NEWSTAR platform January 1, 1999, remember Y2K compliance? The early years we used the basics, general ledger, costing and payroll. Over the next ten years slowly migrated to using the purchase order module. Our usage of the system back then was minor compared to today. Our NEWSTAR world changed dramatically over the last five years. We have several business units striving to use the entire suite of NEWSTAR products with many others right behind them. With the diversity and size of Qualico, we couldn’t have reached our implementation targets and improvements without the help of Constellation. Their employees are truly dedicated to improving the functionality and sophistication of the software. With every software product, we’ve had our challenges through implementations and internal buy-in, but Constellation has been there with us every step of the way, assisting with audits, suggesting best practices and two way communications. Most of all, they are committed to listening to our business issues that could be improved either through recommending alternative processes or software enhancements. We would recommend Constellation’s NEWSTAR software to any other production homebuilder seeking to increase their efficiency in the homebuilding market.
