Challenge

D. R. Horton was using an antiquated system for managing housing development projects and monitoring construction scheduling activities. This system was not adequate for supporting enormous growth in D. R. Horton’s home construction business. They needed a new, scalable construction scheduling application for their internal employees and vendors.

Objectives

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

Process

Prior to developing enterprise solutions for D. R. Horton, it was important for us to learn more about their business processes and construction industry. From our interaction with D. R. Horton team and from frequent visits to their construction sites, we learned that the home construction activities are not just limited to building a house. The lifecycle involves land acquisition, neighborhood planning, coming up with unique housing products for each market, developing and managing construction schedules, offsite and onsite building activities, quality control, and managing labor and materials. This initial discovery stage helped us design a solution that would cover all aspects of home construction.
