Constellation HomeBuilder Systems exhibited at the Remodeling Show in Chicago on October 13-15, 2011.  The Remodeling Show is the only national event which exclusively serves the growing and evolving residential remodeling industry.  “It was amazing to see the amount of traffic flow and interest amongst the remodeler community looking for a construction software solution to help streamline their business,”, said Laurent Amar, Director of Sales for Constellation HomeBuilder Systems.  “We spoke with many remodelers and trades at the show and identified their unique needs.  Some remodelers perform the same or similar jobs many times in a given year and need to focus on marketing and lead generation.  Other remodelers have fewer jobs, but they are more unique and longer in duration, so they need to focus on estimating, scheduling and sharing customer communication, while generating referrals.  Constellation offers products to service all types of remodelers, everything from website design, sales and lead management, and customer portals for information sharing throughout the job.  Basically a one stop shop.”

Constellation’s latest revolutionary product, HomeDev Pro is a cloud-based construction management solution designed for custom builders, remodelers, and mid-market homebuilders looking to integrate all components of their business.  By encompassing Job Cost, Scheduling, Purchasing, Production Catalog and Workflow, HomeDev Pro eliminates the need for multiple systems, duplicate entries and complicated interfaces, all to help increase productivity and maximize profits.  Offered with a subscription pricing model, it uses Microsoft technology and works with many accounting solutions.  Many builders stated clearly “this is exactly what we have been waiting for”.
