64TH LARGEST HOME BUILDER IN THE U.S.
As the 64th largest home builder in the US, and the largest in Missouri, McBride Homes has a vested interest – and a great reputation to uphold – by improving the processes that underpin the company’s remarkable growth. With 900 starts in 2018, up from 742 the previous year, McBride is certainly doing something right, with $207 million in 2017 revenues and a place on the elite Builder 100 list.
PREDICTING COST AND PROFIT
The Company is well-aware that one incremental improvement, can affect profitability, magnifying it 900-fold. Think of it this way: Every $1,100 incremental gain in savings per start for McBride – realizable by implementing the right processes – puts $1 million on the bottom line.
MiTek KOVA gives us one version of the truth.”
McBride Homes has undertaken a comprehensive new software implementation, installing MiTek® KOVA to run their operations from sales through production and into warranty. They are also working with a component manufacturer that uses MiTek® SAPPHIRE® software for truss and wall panel manufacturing.
“We clearly had to get systems in place – as a company and as a technology user – with the options management process, and the impact it was having on our company.” With McBride determined to implement cost-controls, Jake Eilermann, added: “We had to get control of ‘architectural requests’ from our customers and the sales agent working with them.”
