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.

 

Halloween fun with Constellation

Last week we had a little Halloween costume contest at our head office in Markham, Ontario. Some topical costumes stole the show: the software pirate is every developer’s worst enemy; the Halloween daemon is lurking where you lest suspect her; the Constellation homebuilder fixed a warranty issue, then the world’s worst handyman broke it; and the sheriff of Constellation kept the situation from getting out of control.

Who would you vote for to take home the prize?
