MarkSystems Overview

What is MarkSystems?

MarkSystems is a cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) software designed to help home builders, land developers, and construction businesses handle services, bid management, estimation, accounting, project scheduling, customers, documentation, and more. The platform includes a design center, which allows managers, consultants, sales personnel, and field agents to submit and track modifications and custom development requests.

The internet toolkit (ITK) in MarkSystems enables organizations to streamline communication with sub-contractors and homeowners and provides updates about sales and construction projects in real-time. It offers numerous features such as financial management, ROI tracking, automated supplier bidding and pricing, vendor payments management, quality checklists, invoice generation, and more. The land development module provides centralized access to budgets, contracts, and job costing data to assist administrators with monitoring progress across commercial construction and real estate development projects.

MarkSystems offers reporting tools, which let managers provide secure access to data, gain insights into projects, and generate and export custom reports into PDF or Excel files. It also allows marketing and sales teams to engage with buyers and facilitate information about lot status, permissible elevation, prices, and floor plans through interactive sitemaps.

Enterprise Software that Scales as you Grow

Growth is very important to our company and this software has allowed us to grow beyond our previous software solution. We are continuing to grow and the software will scale with us, but as we grow our needs are expanding as well. Mark Systems will have to continue improving it's ability for management to have visibility into it's data for it stay relevant for us.

version 3.1001.3

We build just over 100 homes a year and are anxious to do more. We transitioned to Mark Systems from Quickbooks and spreadsheets. As a growing company, those tools were weak and were a serious burden to our company, so we looked at home building software and decided on Mark Systems. It's an understatement to say that we needed a new software system (we weren't even using purchase orders at the time).

The implementation was difficult but that was due in large part the the fact that we were unorganized. Basically, it would have been very difficult no matter what software we chose. It's taken about 12 months from when we started using the software to utilize the majority of the programs/functions available to us.

Customer support is excellent and this is really important to us, especially since we are new customers with new software. You can imagine that at first there are many questions that come up.

This software will give us the tools to grow beyond our market and still have the control we want.

The biggest issue I have with the software is the ease of use and visual interface. I've used a lot of operating systems and programs and Mark Systems has their work cut out for them. In general, there is a lot of work to do in this department but in particular the sales system (including tracking contacts) and reports. Yes, they work, but it's not intuitive.

One feature I loved and miss in Quickbooks was the widget showing bank account balances on the home screen rather than pulling reports.

All information is real time on MarkSystems. This makes our Purchasing and accounting run and function smoothly.

Pros

What I like most about MarkSystems is the fact that I only have 1 software that I am using for scheduling, budgets, Purchase Orders and Invoicing. Prior to MarkSystems I was working out of 3 different programs.

Cons

What I like least about MarkSystems (More of an ITK issue) is that the VPO's are not able to be emailed to vendors. Most of our vendors are not sitting at a desk so an email on their phone would be beneficial to speed up orders and processes.

Response from ECi Software Solutions

Thank you for your recent review of MarkSystems! We appreciate your feedback and have forwarded on your comment about VPOs to our product team. Thanks again for being a MarkSystems customer.
