    Constellation HomeBuilder Systems

    BuildTopia is ideal for bringing all components of the sales and construction process together for any homebuilder. If you're looking for a platform that also incorporates a robust CRM component, which is key for strong sales efforts, you'll likely need to utilize another platform in conjunction with BT for the best results

    ConstructConnect

    It is very well suited for finding projects where your product is specified, and I just use my company name. but, for other keywords, great.. and then it highlights where you are on the document that comes up. Also, it tells you how many times in the specific project documents it is found so you can find all of them. Not sure, but we're not sure how legal, or ethical, it is for the database to show contact names, phone and email addresses. We don't believe those people appreciate unqualified inclusion in company databases for marketing communication.. ie e-newsletters, etc.

    Pros

    Constellation HomeBuilder Systems

    • BuildTopia excels at contract management. Every part of the contract process is able to be managed electronically from initial signing to closing, and can even handle more special cases like contingencies.
    • BuildTopia manages all of our construction efforts well. All of our floorplans are pre-build in the system, so all we have to do is go in an build out the construction schedule from a pre-made template, and make any alterations from there.
    • The selections process is always a headache, but BuildTopia makes it pretty painless. Everything is loaded right in to the system while making selections with the client, and more detailed things, like non-standard options, are easy to load in and process.

    ConstructConnect

    • My favorite part of ConstructConnect is the ability to have detailed specifications that are up to date. We have used other software in the past that sadly could not keep even 50% of posted specifications up to date.
    • The tracking process is great! I have 5-6 personal lists and lists that are created for our team by the ConstructConnect team that tracks different projects for different teams we have.
    • The user-friendly way to search for thousands of projects, products, and companies.

    Cons

    Constellation HomeBuilder Systems

    • Requests for platform enhancements, while easy to submit and get approved, are slow to be turned around...often a year or more passes before they're implemented.
    • BuiltTopia, while good for sales and construction, is missing one large thing...a CRM component. The system allows you to manage clients and prospects, but options for email marketing and other CRM-related efforts are lacking.

        don't know, haven't used or even courted anyone else for this purpose. Found Reed years ago at ASHRAE/AHR expo, and started it with their pitch then and their good assistance since then.

        Return on Investment

        Constellation HomeBuilder Systems

        • Overall, our company has saved money by being able to shut down all the various platforms we were using for different departments and transition to just BuildTopia.
        • Company efforts are more efficient, with all pertinent information being in one place and able to be viewed by everyone as needed.
        • Efforts of the sales team are better able to be managed and reviewed from afar whereas we only had physical paper trails before.

        • It's had a huge impact since we switched to it. I do not have exact numbers to share but I would say we have increased weekly leads significantly in the last three years.
        • The time it saves is great! I know that we can trust that 95% of the information we see on ConstructConnect is up to date. This typically will save me multiple calls/emails daily.
        • The only negative thing I can think of is we have fewer interactions with other people daily, whether that be face to face, by phone, or email.
