Markham, ON, July 7, 2010 – Constellation HomeBuilder Systems, the largest and most trusted software provider of home building software has been named to the Constructech 50 in 2010. 

With Constellation customers counting for more than half of the largest builders in North America, Constellation is well-known for stability, dedication to technology and the highest standards of customer support.  Not only is Constellation the best choice for builders in the USA, but the top builders in Canada have consistently chosen Constellation products to run their business and transition through changes like the Harmonized Sales Tax, Tarion Warranty Regulations, Goods and Services Tax, and numerous payroll changes.  Throughout the home building recession, Constellation continued to invest in the industry, technology, and services for home builders of all sizes. As the leader in home building software, Constellation is ideally positioned to provide mission-critical software solutions that home builders can trust now and in many years to come.

 “We are happy to be recognized by Constructech magazine again in 2010. Throughout the downturn, we continued to invest in our products and services to ensure that Constellation was the best choice for home builders of all sizes”, says Dexter Salna, President of Constellation HomeBuilder Systems.

Constellation’s software solutions are designed to help builders increase productivity and utilize fewer resources to run their businesses successfully.  With comprehensive solutions for home builder websites, online marketing, new home sales, customer relationship management (CRM), accounting, purchasing, estimating, scheduling, warranty, homeowner portals, land development, and vendor portals, many builders choose Constellation as their trusted technology partner. With a single technology partner, you can count on software upgrades that work, a single support contact for all products, industry expertise, and responsibility for the entire system. In contrast with multi-vendor situations and disparate technologies, Constellation customers know that their systems will be supported and enhanced long-term, that their technology partner is financially strong, and that their technology investment is secure.

Constellation HomeBuilder Systems Launches the HomeDev Production and Job Cost System for Home Builders and Remodelers

Markham, ON January 19, 2010 – Constellation HomeBuilder Systems, the largest provider of home builder, sales, production and accounting software announces a new product release at the 2010 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, NV on January 19 – 22, 2010.  HomeDev™ is specifically designed for home builders and remodelers to help manage their construction processes.

HomeDev offers a comprehensive solution for job costing, project management, budgeting, trade comparison and purchasing.   Built using familiar Microsoft tools like Excel, Project, Outlook, SQL Server, SharePoint, and .NET, the new HomeDev product integrates with QuickBooks and other accounting systems.

During this building slow-down, Constellation HomeBuilder Systems has made significant investments to bring HomeDev to the market.  All builders use spreadsheets and some use Microsoft Project and want to see a new solution that works with these familiar tools.  HomeDev uses Microsoft Excel, Project and Outlook to manage the data collection and presentation, Microsoft SQL to manage the data, and SharePoint and e-mail technology to share documents in the form of vendor and partner portals.

Builders make more money if they learn from their mistakes and avoid them on the next job. HomeDev allows builders to take any job in the system and use that as a basis for a new job. This saves time and produces more accurate estimates and project plans.  The purchasing process in HomeDev provides tools for sending out bid requests, comparing the results, and awarding contracts without manually entering the bid responses.  The builder saves money by selecting the best bid, reduces errors by avoiding data entry, and improves accuracy of budgeting and project management.

HomeDev is designed for the builder seeking a solution that is easy to learn and implement.  Builders running the software have told us “because we are comfortable and familiar with Excel, Project, and QuickBooks, HomeDev fits naturally into our operations.”  HomeDev is available under license or subscription.

Constellation is launching HomeDev at the 2010 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, NV on January 19-22, 2010.
