With 2014 behind us, one software provider for the residential construction industry was clearly looking to go out with a bang. By announcing new features and functionalities for its ERP software, the company is already working toward giving its customers a leg up on the competition in 2015.

Mark Systems, www.marksystemsusa.com, Mount Holly, N.J., a provider of single-database ERP (enterprise resource planning) software for the residential construction industry, announced at the end of 2014 several announcements that are sure to make its customers happy. First, the company announced the release of an open API (application programming interface) that will allow its IHMS (Integrated Homebuilder Management System) software to integrate with third-party sales software solutions.

The company says the integration is a result of customer requests for an easy way to pull information from their IHMS databases for use in their CRM (customer-relationship management) software solutions or other third-party email management or lead generation products. The enhancement to IHMS will be available at no additional charge.

Mark Systems has also announced other improvements to its IHMS software that the company’s engineers and developers have been working on for the past year. In fact, the company says it’s now offering more than 580 separate enhancements that improve the solution’s functionality and ease of use.

The enhancements were driven by customers’ requests.

For example, Mark Systems says IHMS now offers user-configurable dashboards that measure and graphically display key performance metrics from the integrated knowledge base, along with DocuSign integration, sales selections on tablets, and hundreds of other enhancements. By listening to customers’ desires for the next generation of software solutions, providers can retain customers and help them grow along with the technology itself. Now the company is focused on 2015 and helping its customers look to an even more successful year.
