D. R. Horton (DHI) is a national home builder located in Dallas, Texas. Since 2002, D. R. Horton is the #1 builder in the USA. They build beautiful custom homes and demonstrate leadership in residential development. A focus on design, construction, and service have led to their continued success.
Invonto team helped us build construction scheduling software for web and mobile. Their development processes, project management skills, and high-quality work helped us deliver the project on time and budget.
D. R. Horton needed to improve their system for construction management and project tracking. The legacy system was hindering them from scaling their construction business. Scalable project scheduling software would benefit their employees and vendors.
Scalable Digital Solution | Enterprise Mobility | Cost & Accounting Integration | Project Collaboration
During our discovery stage, we worked with D.R. Horton to learn everything about their business. They shared their construction process, goals, and challenges with the legacy system. We defined how construction scheduling software could help benefit D.R. Horton. The software needed to plan, assign, and manage activities between teams. This included the field employees, office staff, and vendors.
We concluded D.R. Horton’s construction scheduling software should deliver on two experiences. The first being a cloud-based web solution. The second being a field service mobile application. Each solution would manage various aspects of the project life cycle. With this goal in mind, we migrated D.R. Horton’s data to the cloud-based project management scheduling software application. We integrated new digital products into their financial systems. This served to improve project workflows.

Both construction scheduling software applications were a huge success. The team could manage schedules and optimize project delivery. The applications saved over $50 million each year in project costs. As a result of this initiative, D.R. Horton introduced new digital products. Our construction scheduling software paved the way for customer portals and warranty programs. We were happy to see D.R. Horton continue to innovate beyond the project.
