Technology That Gives Home Builders More Time


Humans get stuck in cycles.

Wake up. Brush your teeth. Change your clothes. Work. Eat. Go to sleep. Rinse and repeat.

Any time we fall into a habit or pattern, we start conditioning ourselves to think, “Well, that’s just how it is.” When we get complacent with “the way things are,” we stop optimizing for success.

Construction is an industry that’s notoriously slow to change. In fact, productivity in construction has been on a steady decline since the 1970s simply because more time is being spent on non-value-adding work. The construction industry also tends to underinvest in technology.

One of the simplest and most effective ways of improving construction management is by finding more time. After all, it’s long been said that time is the most valuable resource. What would you do if you had more of it?

Take back your time with technology.

We developed FieldCollaborate not to create more time – but to give time back to you. FieldCollaborate, a software solution for residential homebuilders, includes construction management tools like scheduling, vendor and buyer portals, punch item management, safety assessments and more. It’s 24/7 cloud-based access allows anyone on your Team to collaborate whenever and wherever, from field managers and corporate staff to vendors and even homebuyers.

We know what you’re thinking: "Now I have to learn another new program?"

Valid point! When time is already in low supply, who wants to spend more of it adopting new software? But it’s extraordinary how a small time investment with FieldCollaborate can save weeks of time in the long run.

Our client Homes by Taber took the leap of faith. This Oklahoma City single-family production builder implemented FieldCollaborate for their entire Team and reported astounding results. Homes by Taber reduced their cycle time by 28%, which amounted to a savings of 45 days.

45 days! That’s a month and a half of time they get to spend being more productive and picking up more work. Year over year, they’ve been able to grow another $10 - $12 million because FieldCollaborate helps them build houses faster.

This isn’t a one-time success story. We see the benefits of FieldCollaborate with every client. No matter the size of your company, FieldCollaborate scales with you. It can be implemented today, start saving you time tomorrow, and help grow your business more efficiently for years to come.

More time, more productivity, more money.

When we get our time back, we realize how valuable it truly is. When we realize the value of time, we spend it in more productive ways. When we spend time more productively, we have more opportunities for increasing revenue.

Now that’s a cycle we can get stuck in.
