This year’s IBS was the best year in the past four for Constellation HomeBuilder Systems and the thought was echoed by many builders in attendance. There is a realization that technology will play a much more important role in the builder’s future.

There was talk everywhere about leveraging social media in homebuilding. It is a strategy you should adopt NOW! See what I mean…

One thing I learned is the importance of “claiming your business” on Google. There is a way to enhance the listing of your business on Google including maps, pictures content and even reviews. It is part of the Local Business Center… Who Knew? Check out this link to learn about Claiming your Business.

The response to our new Groundbreaker website solution was phenomenal. If you know you need to update your website or think you may need to change see what Groundbreaker can do for you. Announced at the IBS show Groundbreaker had builder big and small talking and agreeing the unbelievable value it represents.

It was amazing to see the response to the newest product in the Constellation HomeBuilder Systems line of ERP solutions. HomeDev is a project management and job cost system developed for the small builder and remodeler. It uses Microsoft tools and works with QuickBooks. Many builders stated clearly “this is exactly what we have been waiting for”.

BuildSoft Pro was introduced at the IBS as well. Current BuildSoft users were stopped dead in their tracks when we showed them the new product and how it will help them better manage job costs and complete projects on time.

Markham, ON February 1, 2010 – Constellation HomeBuilder Systems, the largest provider of homebuilder accounting software, announces the release of BuildSoft Pro™ 32-Bit, specifically designed for home builders and remodelers to help manage their construction processes.

Since the acquisition of BuildSoft, Constellation has taken this opportunity to increase its investment in new technology and dedicated the necessary resources to re-engineer the product.  We are continuing to invest in the product and maintain our long-term commitment to the home building industry”, says Dexter Salna, President of Constellation HomeBuilder Systems.  “The long-term stability of Constellation ensures that we will continue to enhance our products and bring new solutions forward to help builders compete in any type of market condition.”

The new BuildSoft Pro™ system has a more modern look and feel based on a solid footing with Microsoft Outlook functionality and opportunity for future enhancements.  The end result is a new product that encompasses all the best features trusted by thousands of BuildSoft users, plus many of our recent enhancements.  BuildSoft Pro™ is the next step up from standard spreadsheets, allowing homebuilders to manage everything from accounting to project management.  Specifically, homebuilders can use BuildSoft Pro’s™ residential construction and scheduling software as one integrated package for accounting, project management, estimating and job costing.  All four integrated components help builders improve efficiency.  For remodelers, BuildSoft Pro’s™ residential remodelling features offer the same benefits, to help complete projects on-time and on budget.

The community of 1,500 loyal BuildSoft customers, some of which have been using the software for 21 years, are excited that Constellation has made investments in new technology for BuildSoft.   With a new 32-bit platform, BuildSoft Pro™ will be the foundation to give builders security and stability in their software investments and will provide the comfort of knowing they will be supported now and in the years to come.

BuildSoft Pro™ was launched at the 2010 International Builders’ Show on January 19-22, 2010, and the response has been overwhelming with many BuildSoft customers signing up to take advantage of the low cost early adopter program.  Custom home builders, small volume production builders and remodelers stopped by the booth in large numbers to find out more about BuildSoft Pro™ and the long anticipated new release.
