Markham, ON, January 30, 2009 – Constellation HomeBuilder Systems, the largest provider of homebuilding software, is pleased to announce the winner of two Constructech Top Products awards for Constellation BuildSoft and Constellation OnLocation-Construction Manager. “Constellation is a unique company in the home building software industry.  We strive to develop world class products, work closely with our customers and provide stable solutions home builders can trust to run their business now and in the future”, says Dexter Salna, President of Constellation HomeBuilder Systems. “The BuildSoft system for residential builders and remodelers is a great example of how Constellation has invested in an established product to improve software, documentation, training and customer support.  BuildSoft customers agree that the product has improved immensely and we receive positive feedback on a daily basis.”

OnLocation-Construction Manager is the latest solution in the award winning suite of OnLocation mobile device applications for home builders.  In addition to core scheduling functionality and payment approval, field staff and inspectors can easily identify and record quality issues at any point during the building cycle and beyond.  Not only can vendor payment be withheld, but issues can be addressed easier and tracked over periods of time.  Using the camera capabilities of many mobile devices, you can capture photos from the field and automatically categorize them within the system. Once they are in the system, they can easily be made available for all employees and distributed to managers, vendors, and home buyers as necessary. The photos and easy identification of quality issues becomes a key tool in supplier and trade negotiations. This Constructech Top Products award for enhanced products is the third award for Constellation’s OnLocation suite of mobile device software solutions.

BuildSoft is one of Constellation’s core production and accounting systems, tailored specifically for small-volume, custom home builders and remodellers.  Our other mission critical production and accounting systems include FASTNEWSTARBuilder 360BuildSoft, Constellation CRM (formerly Computers for Tracts) and LandDev.  We continue to support and enhance these systems with the latest regional and regulatory requirements and bring new functionality to help our customers improve their core operations.
