MARK SYSTEMS was honored this evening as a 2009 Vision Award winner during a special ceremony at the fourth annual Constructech Technology Day conference, held this year at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare hotel.
The Vision Awards honor companies that have realized the advantages of applying innovative technologies to their everyday businesses. MARK SYSTEMS Integrated Homebuilder Management System was singled out as the enabling technology for Heartland Homes of Pittsburgh, PA. Heartland Homes was a Silver Vision Awards winner for its ability to shift emphasis from production homebuilding to being the largest custom home builder in its market.
“I was honored to accept this award on behalf of MARK SYSTEMS," said Mark Finelli, President of MARK SYSTEMS. "But more importantly, I’m honored that our software helped Heartland Homes improve market share from 8% to 14% at a time when the home building industry is in distress", Finelli said.
"In today’s market, construction companies must face new challenges head on, and bring customers the most affordable, quality product they can. This goal can be achieved with the use of the right technology solutions,” said Mike Carrozzo, chief editor, Constructech. “The companies named as Vision Award winners recognize this necessity, and have become more successful as a result of implementing technology.”
