Challenge

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.

Objectives

Scalable Digital Solution | Enterprise Mobility | Cost & Accounting Integration | Project Collaboration

Process

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.

Solution #1: Construction Scheduling Software for Enterprise Cloud

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.
