With Leading Status in U.S. Housing Markets Achieved, BuilderMT Offers its Award-Winning Software in Sales Push to Canadian Markets

    BuilderMT is Enabled for Canadian Markets with GST Capability Linked to
All Aspects of the Home Building Process, from Sales and Pricing to Accounting
and Warranty

    LAKEWOOD, COLO., November 19 /CNW/ - BuilderMT, the leading provider of
production management software for residential home builders, today announced
that it is moving aggressively into Canadian housing markets with new sales
initiatives. Even as U.S. housing markets have slowed, Canadian markets have
experienced strong growth, largely spared from the impact of the U.S. mortgage
crisis. In fact, the total value of construction investment in Canada will
surpass $200 billion in 2007 for the first time. Single-family and
multi-family construction contributes substantially to that total.

    BuilderMT is the widely recognized leader in process-driven, best
building practice software for builders, as well as customer service, warranty
applications, online training, and innovative wireless applications. Its
software is used to manage more than 20% of all U.S. housing starts.

    For Canadian markets, BuilderMT and its accounting software partner, Sage
Timberline Office, have long been capable of processing GST, the Canadian
Goods and Services Tax. GST is a broad-based value-added tax levied by the
federal government, but many home building software packages created in the
U.S. are not prepared to correctly manage GST, if at all. With many Canadian
home builders already using BuilderMT, the Company has a strong legacy
customer base on which to build its new Canadian sales effort.

    "Canadian single-family and multi-family home building represents an
immediate opportunity for BuilderMT to bring Canadian builders the same
cost-containment, process automation, and lower cycle times that have
benefited our U.S. homebuilder customers," said Tom Gebes, BuilderMT's
president. "Our new Business Process Management and Trade Portal tools are
particularly well suited to Canadian markets, as we have rolled out a digital
'command and control' environment that is ideal for managing rapid growth."

    BuilderMT has established itself as the best-selling, most award-winning
software suite for residential home builders of nearly any size, with
year-on-year growth that outpaces all of its competitors, combined. Recent
awards for BuilderMT include:

    --  ConstrucTech Hottest Company of the Year 2007
