BuilderMT and Sales Simplicity, both MiTek companies, announced that they have each won a Constructech Vision award for their work with Arbor Builders.

This is the 38th technology award for BuilderMT and the 15th for Sales Simplicity.

To manage its construction workflows, Arbor Builders has implemented an all-encompassing solution, built on three key software tools — BuilderMT’s Workflow Management Suite (WMS),Sales Simplicity for CRM and sales automation, and Microsoft NAV for accounting. (Microsoft NAV was implemented by a BuilderMT-Sales Simplicity partner company, Western Computer, an accounting specialist in the home building sector.) For its careful choice of technology in preparation for rapid growth, Arbor Builders won the top gold prize in the “Builder/GC Residential Less than $5 million” category.

In a recent case study of Arbor Builders, company founder Jason Adams said, “What’s best about these systems – BuilderMT, Sales Simplicity and Microsoft NAV – is that they are all pre-integrated; they all talk to each other, and data flows from one to the other as if they were a single system.”

“Our ‘Best of Breed’ business model allows home builders like Arbor Builders to pick elite software packages in multiple categories, all of which have been integrated for ease-of-use,” said Tom Gebes, president of BuilderMT and Sales Simplicity. “Arbor Builders can now grow its company at any speed, confident they have the technology platform in place to accommodate an essentially limitless number of starts.”
