Why Did Evans Coghill Homes Select BuildTopia?

Evans Coghill Homes

BUILDER magazine asks Alan Banks, Owner and CMO of Evans Coghill Homes in South Carolina, how and why they chose BuildTopia to manage their homebuilding operations.

Selecting the right construction management software is a crucial but often overlooked step in the home building business. Builders often end up patching together a variety of systems to handle everything from payroll and accounting to scheduling and sales. This ends up creating extra work instead of helping the business to run smoothly.

“Now that the market is improving, we were looking to wrap [our software and processes] up in an end-to-end solution” says Alan.

Q: What should builders keep in mind when setting out to evaluate their software?

A: First off, determine why you want a change. Is it for higher profits, improved customer service, to cut down on administrative costs, or enhance staff communication? Whatever your reason, realize that there is no magic bullet–unless you are willing to write your own software, you have to fit your company’s operational needs into the parameters set by the software company.

Find the right solution by coming up with your list of non-negotiable “must-haves” and shop for those. Don’t get lost in promises that aren’t important to you or your brand. In other words, if online selections are not important to you, then don’t buy a solution because it has that feature and you believe you might use it.
