“We had so many separate schedules and spreadsheets. We needed to connect everyone. MarkSystems gives us one central location with all the information, and we don’t have to worry if it is wrong or updated since it updates automatically and easily. We were already a fairly sophisticated builder, so we had already adopted technology that had automated things like purchase orders (POs) and budgets in one place, but not accounting. MarkSystems offers the full package. It brought it all together with one standard.”
