Sales Simplicity ITW Instinct, CG Visions and BuilderMT Integrate Software Products
Jan 21, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Sales Simplicity ITW Instinct, CG Visions, and BuilderMT announced that they have allied and pre-integrated the workflow management, sales management, and design features of their software products.
According to a release, the combined capability provides the ability to tie BIM and CAD home-design files directly to sales, estimating, and accounting, as well as to purchasing, work orders, and scheduling systems.
The result of this alliance is that homebuilders can now construct custom or semi-custom homes at production speeds, with the costs and predictability typically associated with production homebuilding.
"It is clear that homebuilders are faced with managing an ever-increasing level of complexity and that they need a more comprehensive solution that links all of the information in the designing and building of their homes. Our combined system is designed to better ensure that they can make a profit on any home," the companies said in a joint statement. "By linking the sales process, option-selection system, workflow management tools and 3D architectural software in a comprehensive BIM solution, we offer builders the ability to dynamically link any option-configured home plan directly to estimating and purchasing. This allows builders to quickly and accurately estimate the lot-specific costs - and the individual cycle times - for custom and semi-custom homes.
"In today's market, the custom and semi-custom home builder has to compete on many levels. Extremely accurate cost and time predictions are the ultimate business advantage that our systems can provide to builders. We are always working on new and innovative ways for building professionals to work smarter. That's what this alliance of award-winning software companies is offering at IBS 2013 and beyond."
