Could the homebuilding market be picking up? While remodeling activity continues to remain slow due to current economic conditions, new home sales rose 5.7% in September, which is the fastest pace of new-home sales in the past five months. While the market is not soaring by any means, the grim reality of years’ past seems to be dying down, as the market at least begins to steady out.
The good news is builders that have made it through the downturn have learned how to do more with less and are more business savvy than ever before—which makes it the perfect time to invest in technology, if you haven’t done so already. Does this seem like the right time to ramp up processes for BIM (building information modeling) or maybe develop in-depth content-management and workflow strategies around your traditionally paper-based procedures? Technology is the tool that can enable all of this and more.
From accounting and job costing to sales and CRM (customer-relationship management), builders have an opportunity at this juncture to take the time to evaluate and implement new solutions before the market really picks up.
In order to enable this technology decisionmaking process, the 2011 Constructech Residential Buyer’s Guide can serve as a directory to some of the most prominent software providers for the residential construction industry.
This year the Buyer’s Guide has been redesigned with expanded profiles and in-depth details to make the technology purchasing process even easier. As part of our digital edition, the Buyer’s Guide includes interactive content to help you get a better feel for the technology.
