Efficiency is Gained Through the Use of BuilderMT™ and Other Software Solutions

tim_obrien_logoDenver — July 14, 2015 — BuilderMT, the widely-acknowledged market share leader in workflow management solutions for mid-market home builders, revealed in a recent case study that its client, Tim O’Brien Homes, can increase start volume by 20% without adding staff through the use of BuilderMT and other workflow management solutions. Read the case study here.

To achieve this ability to scale-up without staffing-up, Tim O’Brien uses advanced software platforms that automate all sales and construction processes, allowing for an extremely lean staff.

The Company runs the entire BuilderMT Workflow Management Suite, as well as Sales Simplicity, Sage Accounting, and CG Visions. With the recent addition of BuilderMT’s Builder Portal™, all affiliated trades and construction managers now have unrivaled access to lot-specific information in a largely paperless environment, further allowing for reduced staff.

With the resulting efficiencies that Tim O’Brien Homes has gained, the company reports that it is now capable of expanding its start volume today by 20% without adding a single new person for operations and construction management. Today, Tim O’Brien Homes builds 3,000 sq. ft. homes, priced from $280,000 to $320,000; options packages range from $20,000 to $60,000/home. The Company will start 150 homes in Milwaukee in 2015. (There is another company division in Madison, WI.)

“Scaling-up without staffing-up is one of the keys to assuring higher profits,” said Tom Gebes, BuilderMT’s president. “With BuilderMT we consistently see home builders like Tim O’Brien that are able to run with leaner staffs and typically generate higher margins than their peers.”
