HomeFront Provides Home Builders Powerful Estimating Package for Takeoff and Pricing Custom Changes



    PrecisionBuilder Lets Custom and Semi-Custom Home Builders Quickly
Generate Budgets and Purchase Orders Based on Home Buyer Selections

    ATLANTA, June 12 /CNW/ - HomeFront announced today in the U.S. the launch
of their new PrecisionBuilder product as part of their HomeBuilder Management
Tool Kit. PrecisionBuilder is the final piece to the home builder industry's
only true end-to-end solution, providing builders with an efficient way to
update and maintain their model and option price book with linked purchase
orders.

    PrecisionBuilder is the latest addition to HomeFront's HomeBuilder
Management Tool Kit, the solution for builders who build between 25 and 2,500
homes per year and who have recently come to appreciate that they MUST keep
costs down and decrease turnaround time as a result of ongoing changes in
model and option pricing.

    PrecisionBuilder offers several significant benefits for builders
including:

    --  Significantly shortened implementation time with tools that build up
the builder's price book with linked purchase orders from one simple-to-use,
Excel-based spreadsheet

    --  Quick creation of budgets and purchase orders based on model and
option selections made in the sales center

    --  Embedded interface to Sage Timberline Office(TM) estimating for
complex takeoff for custom options

    --  Electronic real-time price book pricing by market value or mark-up
and margin

    --  Full integration into accounting systems using Sage Timberline
Office, providing homebuilders with anytime access to pricing and cost data
before, during, and after construction

    "As home builder costs continually change, they need business systems
that can respond quickly to changes in models and options," said Daryl
Shenner, President of HomeFront. "PrecisionBuilder is the first product on the
market to allow model and option pricing based on up to 12 forecasted costs.
Finally a builder can run margin scenarios and price a model based on future
costs. We're also very excited to finally be able to offer the benefits of a
'sales to estimating to purchasing process solution' for builders that allow
customization to their plans. By embedding the power of Sage Timberline Office
estimating takeoff in PrecisionBuilder, these builders can complete their
process in one interface using HomeFront."

    PrecisionBuilder is a solution for both custom and semi-custom builders.
Many building products are tailored to the larger-production builder, but they
don't respond to the custom builder's need to make changes. PrecisionBuilder
offers the ability to create real estimating based on customization, and to
incorporate it immediately into the job quote.

    HomeFront is a collaborative effort of technology experts who have been
working in the residential building industry for over 15 years. The company
was created to provide home builders with the tools they need to manage their
business in an ever-changing industry and market. With their unique
relationship with Sage Timberline Office(TM), HomeFront delivers the only,
true, end-to-end solution that empowers home builders to maximize their
profits at every stage of their construction process.
