Renowned home building company uses MarkSystems to maintain operational efficiencies and drive added value for the business and its franchisees

ECI Software Solutions, a leader in cloud-based business management solutions, today announced that EPCON Communities Franchising, one of the top franchisors of lifestyle-rich home developers in the country, has acknowledged cloud-based MarkSystems® ERP software as its preferred home building software solution for its mid-sized and larger franchises. For more than two years, the company has leveraged ECI’s residential home construction products – MarkSystems, Lasso and LotVue – to help manage its homebuilding business.

As EPCON’s preferred home building software, MarkSystems offers the company various features to maintain sustainable operations every day, including:

  • Integrated accounting capabilities that allow users to manage and report on multiple entities and divisions
  • Automated field communication and PO processing
  • Centralized management of floor plans and options, maintaining flexibility for each division’s specific needs
  • Expanded reporting features for sales and consolidated financials

“In addition to meeting the critical functionality requirements of our corporate homebuilding company, MarkSystems also continues to receive positive feedback from current franchise builders who use the software, which is impressive,” said Paul Hanson, President EPCON Communities Franchising. “Recommending home building software to our franchises is not taken lightly, and we’re confident that we’ve found the partner we need to move our larger franchises’ businesses forward. In a short period of time, ECI has already proven their commitment to our organization and demonstrated expertise in our market.”

“As an integrated system, MarkSystems takes care of the whole project lifecycle – from sales to warranty. With it, our accounting, sales, and construction teams are all working off the same information in real-time,” said Andy Dreyfuss, Managing Partner of Nova Triad Homes – an EPCON Franchising builder. “Margins are tight in construction, so every half-percent is critical. Using MarkSystems lets us run our business at an optimal level and increase profitability.”

“EPCON is certainly a leader in the home building industry, and we’re thrilled to be supporting their franchisees to help them grow,” said Scott Duman, President, Residential Home Construction Group, Building & Construction Division at ECI. “By leveraging MarkSystems’ integrated cloud capabilities, we are excited to see EPCON streamline processes, drive increased efficiencies and expedite communications throughout the organization and with franchisees. We look forward to working with them on their growth goals in the years to come.”
