The client wanted to empower home buyers to buy and customize houses as they would when they buy an item from Amazon. This was the vision Mr. Sean had seen when he spoke to us in our first meeting. “People buying houses off the internet“ – that sounded 2050, he said.
As we delved more into the business requirements, we realized how serious Streamline LLC was about the vision.
Streamline was using MarkPro’s construction software named IHMS that offers a Java-based windows client app and a centralized cloud-based Oracle database. The construction team had been using this software in the field to issue addendums to buyers based on their custom upgrade needs.
All customer transactions and payments were being managed through the SalesForce CRM.
The goal was to develop a web app that would connect their SalesForce CRM and construction software, IHMS, to allow their buyers to access everything from their browsers. Instead of approaching the construction executives to make an upgrade order, the system would allow them to log in and customize their dream home as and when they need.
Further, this integrated platform would allow buyers to browse through available inventories, access all their payments and construction schedules, sign digital contracts, and access all documents in one place.
