Woodbridge, NJ, March 19, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- SBS Group, a leading technology consulting firm, announces today that they have been selected by Shapell Industries, Inc., to implement Microsoft Dynamics SL & Kova, a complete home builder solution. SBS provides accounting and business solutions to mid-sized companies through a network of regional offices across the United States.
Shapell Industries is one of the largest developers/homebuilders in California. Having built over 70,000 housing units, it owns and manages more than 2,700,000 square feet of commercial space and has developed and currently manages over 6,000 apartment units. With headquarters in Beverly Hills, California, the company employs over 250 individuals.
Dedicated to building the home a customer wants, Shapell required a single, integrated technology solution to enhance reporting, eliminate redundant data entry, accelerate the workflow for inquiries, and increase visibility into homebuyer activity and history. During the evaluation process, the selection team evaluated a number of enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to support their home building and financial requirements before selecting Microsoft Dynamics SL & Kova and choosing SBS Group as the technology partner.
“As we went through the RFP process, it became apparent that Microsoft Dynamics SL had so much more functionality out of the box than any of the other packages evaluated, it became apparent that the Kova/Dynamics SL was the natural choice,” states John Critikos, VP and CIO for Shapell Industries.
“By choosing Microsoft Dynamics SL & Kova solutions, Shapell Industries is able to take advantage of the integration between Microsoft technologies,” states Carolyn Chasteen of SBS Group Denver. She continues, “This complete solution for residential home builders will provide Shapell the accounting, reporting and project management functionality to build homes quickly and cost-effectively.”
