LAKEWOOD, Colo.--()--BuilderMT announced today that one of its clients, Verity Homes, is achieving extraordinary results from using a best-of-breed application of workflow software that includes multiple modules of BuilderMT and its strategic technology partners. Taking advantage of a building boom in North Dakota, Verity Homes will start 154 homes in 2012. That is an increase of 25 starts over 2011 figures, yet Verity Homes was able to scale up those 25 additional starts (a 20% increase) without the need to add additional staff. Verity Homes carries just 22 employees. Given that Verity Homes achieves an average margin of 6% on $220,000 average unit sales, Verity Homes was able to pick up over $300,000 in additional net profit just with the capabilities BuilderMT and its strategic technology partners brought to Verity Homes’ operations.
“We also do something interesting with our CAD system, which we have tied into BuilderMT and Sage”
Verity Homes uses BuilderMT to manage building in 17 neighborhoods, using 38 base home plans. The Company runs very lean operations, and construction cycle times range from 105 to 140 days, depending on the model under construction. “We also do something interesting with our CAD system, which we have tied into BuilderMT and Sage,” said Verity Homes’ Art Goldammer. “For our CAD software, we use Vertex, and for managing our 3D images and the data they generate, we implemented CG Visions’ BIM Pipeline product. We have Vertex and BIM Pipeline linked ‘upstream’ to our options selection system and ‘downstream’ to our accounting and workflow. With those linkages, we are able to let a buyer option out a home, while in real time we simultaneously obtain our ‘should cost’ for the home, along with the retail price we will charge. The buyer immediately gets a price for what looks and feels like a custom home, yet we are able to price it out – and build it – as if it were a production home.”
