MarkSystems® Internet ToolKit™ (ITK) is a fully integrated, cloud-based project management program created specifically for home building. It helps you manage your construction projects and subcontractors by providing instantaneous, real-time updates that flow directly from sales to production. Team members, subcontractors, and homebuyers alike can access pertinent information on their mobile phones or tablets. All information is consistent across the project and up to date!
Selection, purchasing, distributing, and scheduling information flow directly from sales, and can lower costs and eliminate 80% of variances
Capture prospect information to help improve communication with home buyers, homeowners, and trade associates
Any changes made to a schedule or order are available immediately through the standard web interface or ITK, in the office, or in the field
Everyone on the project can access updated information in the field so you know what has been received, when it was checked, and by whom
Access information through any internet-enabled mobile digital device and many notebook computers
QA checklists are built directly into the schedules to ensure the job is done right the first time; this eliminates field errors and callbacks

Real-time access from anywhere
Work with Trade Partners More Efficiently
ITK links directly to your existing website and creates dynamic, personalized dashboards for each field employee. From their dashboards, superintendents and managers can review Job Starts and Change Orders, request VPOs, revise schedules, and more in real-time.
Accessing information directly from MarkSystems, ITK provides access to:
Trade Subcontractors and Suppliers Portal
Access needed information on your site through personalized dashboards
Since much of the information accumulated in MarkSystems is crucial for construction projects, trade associates, subcontractors, and suppliers also have personalized access to the system through the Internet ToolKit on their own dashboard.
The ITK portal allows these parties to streamline their operations by:
Homebuyer and Homeowner Portal
Improve communication and customer service
Keep home buyers and home owners informed
With ITK, homebuyers and homeowners can each have their own unique dashboard, showing purchased and available options, construction status, sales and customer service links, “last mile” and post-closing sales information—virtually anything you wish to include.
The Warranty portal also lets you stay engaged with your customers after the sale and keep on top of the trade associates providing warranty service. Successful builders know that efficient customer service after closing is the best way to maintain good referral sources.
With the ITK you can give home buyers access to any relevant information including:
Sales Office and Design Center
Improve customer experience
Manage selections and improve customer experience
Your staff can walk the design center or model home while capturing customer selections directly on any internet-enabled device! All selections and pricing are accurate in real-time from your purchasing department. When a color or material are not offered on a specific elevation or are no longer in stock, they simply disappear from the system. The best part is, all selections are immediately available in MarkSystems for contract review and completion.
Capture homebuyer information
Simplify the registration process
With 75% of new homebuyers using the internet as an initial search tool, your ability to find and track online prospects is crucial. The ITK lets you integrate prospect information directly into the system as soon as the prospect shows interest. ITK Prospect Registration captures not just name and contact information, but any demographic information you’ve selected.
WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Since implementing MarkSystems, our superintendents have realized three additional hours of productivity per day. Those with tablets feel like they’ve gained closer to five hours per day!
