MARK SYSTEMS CORPORATE PROFILE

About Us

Mark Systems - 35 Years of Developing Home Builder Software

ONE INDUSTRY, ONE COMPANY, ONE VISION

Mark SystemsTM is a leading provider of simple, visual, social, and mobile home builder software solutions, offering best practices based on NAHB recommendations and real-world applications.

IHMSTM is the home building industry’s only single-database, ERP information management application, and one of the most widely used, industry-specific software products available for home builders.

Through the use of interactive maps, LotVueTM allows developers and builders to easily visualize lot inventory, construction progress, sales status, budget and schedule variances, architectural and other vital information.

Utilizing a single database throughout the system, real-time access from anywhere provides residential builders state-of-the-art efficiencies in reporting and customer service. Complete integration assures reliable accuracy from sales through construction.

 

MISSION STATEMENT

Our Mission Statement is simple:

“Improve bottom line revenue for our builder customers through tools and services that improve operational efficiency and reduce costs.”

Since 1983, Mark Systems has been exclusively focused on the development of software tools focused on a single industry: residential builders and developers. We serve no other industries; we have no outside investors or stockholders; we have no performance pressures other than those originating from our customer base.

From the newest intern to the board of directors, every Mark Systems employee understands that, to continue to be successful, our only alternative is to service our customers beyond their expectations.

While every company touts itself as a ‘customer centric’ organization, Mark Systems “puts its money where its mouth is.” Our business model is one of partnership with our customers, and our licensing terms reflect that.

Since Mark Systems’ software is licensed on a per-unit basis, our performance and financial future is intrinsically linked to that of our customers: we’re only paid if the customer continues to use our software to profitably build houses. This fact filters down into every aspect of Mark Systems’ business. Barriers to entry are lower for Mark Systems than with virtually any other competing product. And while this is good news for the customer, it means that there is only a limited “sunk cost” incentive for any given customer to stay with the software.

Every Mark Systems employee understands this as a fact of life. Across the organization, every employee understands that we have to remain engaged with every customer continuously. Mark Systems consistently gets the highest marks for its customer service and support team, reflecting that philosophy.

 

COMPANY PROFILE

Mark Systems is a privately owned, intensely focused organization, with one product, one market and one goal: to increase our home builder clients’ profitability by reducing construction costs, increasing sales, improving productivity, and enhancing communication. The company’s only product suite is IHMS™, the Integrated Homebuilder Management System™, a single database, feature-rich enterprise software tool for managing home builder accounting and operations.

Since it’s release in 1983, Mark Systems’ IHMS customers accounted for the construction of hundreds of thousands of homes throughout the United States. Despite our national scope, Mark Systems retains the culture of a regional software developer. Every Mark Systems employee, from the owners to the receptionist, establishes a personal relationship with our clients that drives our development and ensures our growth.

Mark Systems is a trade name for American Management Enterprises, Inc., a privately held New Jersey S-corporation. There are three equal partners, all of whom are active in day-to-day operations. The company’s technical employees, most of whom are based at the corporate headquarters in Mount Holly, NJ, focus on new product development, product maintenance, and customer support for IHMS. Mark Systems uses no contract employees, although the company has a solid, non-financial working relationship with a number of top industry consulting organizations.
