To lead our business, we have to invest in the right technology so we can get the best out of our teams and get the best quality information. COINS is an industry leading product. A significant percentage of construction companies use COINS, so I think our company should be aligned with those companies and use the best technologies available.
We’ve tried to work with the developers to let them know what would work best for our industry, which has helped us get a software that is fit for our purpose.
This integrated system has a lot of benefits and gives the buyers more control.
We have chosen the COINS Cloud to provide the business with an IT platform that will deliver a simplified, resilient and cost-effective IT service to all of our employees.
We decided to look for a new ERP system 5 years ago. We’ve been in business for 25 years and our old system was not keeping up with technology. We wanted a fresh start to propel our company into the next generation.
We’re primarily in the home building segment, and trying to find someone who understands and specializes in home building was key for us. COINS definitely fills that need for us.
COINS has a great implementation team, they are very thorough, and at the end of the implementation, you’re going to get the results you desire. As simple as it sounds, having an up to date and accurate WIP schedule is great and COINS offers us that.
One of the reasons we chose COINS was their culture. We see it as a partnership, and COINS mimics our core culture. Everybody I’ve met shares our same core values and gives back through their foundation. Giving back to the community is important.
