MarkSystems - WoodFalls Development

All information is real time on MarkSystems. This makes our Purchasing and accounting run and function smoothly.

Pros

What I like most about MarkSystems is the fact that I only have 1 software that I am using for scheduling, budgets, Purchase Orders and Invoicing. Prior to MarkSystems I was working out of 3 different programs.

Cons

What I like least about MarkSystems (More of an ITK issue) is that the VPO's are not able to be emailed to vendors. Most of our vendors are not sitting at a desk so an email on their phone would be beneficial to speed up orders and processes.

Reasons for Choosing ECi MarkSystems

Pricing and for what MarkSystems offered. Not too mention the customer service is outstanding.

Enterprise Software that Scales as you Grow

Growth is very important to our company and this software has allowed us to grow beyond our previous software solution. We are continuing to grow and the software will scale with us, but as we grow our needs are expanding as well. Mark Systems will have to continue improving it's ability for management to have visibility into it's data for it stay relevant for us.

Pros

Cloud based. Completely integrated builder software. Customization. Online portal for inside and outside users. Ensure strengths of internal controls. Complex internal cost tracking system.

Cons

Does not have metrics or dashboards included that can help management. Some of the interfaces for entering data are slow and a little encumbering to use.

Reasons for Choosing ECi MarkSystems

We received a recommendation about the product and it had many features we were looking for to replace Quickbooks. Scalability with a small overhead footprint was the main draw.

version 3.1001.3 We build just over 100 homes a year and are anxious to do more. We transitioned to Mark Systems from Quickbooks and spreadsheets. As a growing company, those tools were weak and were a serious burden to our company, so we looked at home building software and decided on Mark Systems. It's an understatement to say that we needed a new software system (we weren't even using purchase orders at the time). The implementation was difficult but that was due in large part the the fact that we were unorganized. Basically, it would have been very difficult no matter what software we chose. It's taken about 12 months from when we started using the software to utilize the majority of the programs/functions available to us. Customer support is excellent and this is really important to us, especially since we are new customers with new software. You can imagine that at first there are many questions that come up. This software will give us the tools to grow beyond our market and still have the control we want. The biggest issue I have with the software is the ease of use and visual interface. I've used a lot of operating systems and programs and Mark Systems has their work cut out for them. In general, there is a lot of work to do in this department but in particular the sales system (including tracking contacts) and reports. Yes, they work, but it's not intuitive. One feature I loved and miss in Quickbooks was the widget showing bank account balances on the home screen rather than pulling reports.

It has all you need

It works for what we need it to do and is relatively quick compared to others.

Pros

It is completely comprehensive and covers everything from estimating to scheduling.

Cons

The user interface is very basic. It feels like an old windows program.
