When it comes to web integration, Mark SystemsTM project management, the Internet ToolKitTM (ITKTM), is in a class by itself. Information is released to subcontractors and field personnel automatically within the normal business process flow.
There’s never a “nightly update” or “synchronization” process to worry about; with cloud-based ITK, team members are accessing the same knowledge base you are, in real time.
What’s the payoff for you?
IHMS ITK cloud based project management is designed to ensure that you sell only what you can build, and that you build exactly what you sold. Real-time integrations between sales and production means that change orders are controlled before they become a problem.
And instantaneous communication to superintendents and subcontractors means that everyone you’re relying on has the correct information at the exact time that they need it. Field errors and callbacks are virtually eliminated, because the house is built right the first time.
Unlike back office personnel, field superintendents need access to information away from their desks – at the job site. With the IHMS ITK, superintendents,construction managers, and warranty service representatives have access to all the information they need right in the palm of their hand.
The IHMS Internet ToolKit mobile web portal works with any web-enabled device, including:

“Having worked in the lumber business for over twenty years, I have not come across a system more efficient for both the contractor and supplier than Mark Systems Internet ToolKit (ITK). I deal with a wide variety of production builders that use multiple systems, but none compare to the flexibility of ITK.
My staff has the ability to access all PO’s and verify numbers, while having access to plans – all on one portal. The dashboard is extremely manageable and reduces a lot of confusion caused by other systems in regards to scheduling.”
-Scott Sarratt, Contractor Sales Rep, 84 Lumber
