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’s OnLocation-Schedule Wins Another Industry Award

Constellation HomeBuilder Systems, the largest provider of homebuilding software in the industry, is pleased to announce that Constellation OnLocation-Schedule has won the Constructech Top Products 2008 award.

Constructech selected Constellation OnLocation-Schedule for its ease of use and extremely powerful field scheduling functionality. Designed for both superintendents and construction managers, OnLocation-Schedule ensures that everyone is up-to-date and that building progress is closely monitored.

“We congratulate Constellation HomeBuilder Systems for winning a Constructech Top Products award,” said Mike Carrozzo, editor, Constructech magazine. “Customers using this product have had great success managing construction schedules and payment processes from the field.” This is yet another benefit that Constellation provides to its customers. With an unsurpassed dedication to the homebuilding industry and continued investment in new technologies, Constellation is positioned to lead the industry for many years to come.

As part of the OnLocation suite of mobile device applications, OnLocation-Schedule is one piece of the big picture. Coupled with NEWSTAR Enterprise and Constellation Focus, OnLocation is the basis for a powerful system of schedule management, supplier and trade performance measurement, and timely report generation and distribution. Many builders have used this system to achieve better supplier and trade relationships, while increasing customer satisfaction with fewer mistakes and improved cycle times. Using OnLocation-Schedule’s “Complete with Exceptions” feature has allowed builders to withhold payments for work that was done incorrectly, while allowing the building schedule to proceed in many cases. In addition, the use of Constellation Focus allows suppliers to be given a statement that identifies all the tasks for which payment is being held, reducing the number of phone calls and providing a clear incentive for completing the work as soon as possible.

“We are very excited about OnLocation-Schedule being selected for another homebuilding industry award,” exclaims Dexter Salna, President of Constellation HomeBuilder Systems. “Constellation listens to its customers and develops the solutions that will improve their businesses. We have a strong group of early adopter customers that deserve a lot of credit for helping us develop award winning applications. These relationships improve product quality and ultimately improve the solutions that we can offer to other homebuilders.”
