MyHome provides your clients with online access to progress, construction updates, photos, documents and much more once signed up.

MyHome portal provides your clients with online access to all their house details.

 

What does MyHome do for you the Builder and the Client?
The obvious benefit that you get out of this is in your marketing and customer perception.  For most of your customers, the purchase of the home is their biggest investment to date.  The more you can portray that you will keep them updated in the process and provide the extra levels of customer service, the more likely a customer will choose you as their builder.

Enable clients that do not live in the locality of their new home e.g. overseas or interstate to have involvement and real time updates to the progress of their home.

Another major benefit is the ability for the client to answer some of the questions they may have, by going to the website and looking at a document, a recent photo or the current progress.  If they can’t get the answer from the information, they can leave a message through the website to have the appropriate person contact them back.  For the client, this often means the ability to get an issue out of their mind and not brood over it until they can get hold of someone.  For the builder, it means that your staff will have fewer interuptions to their normal day’s work to answer phone calls.

 

What information can MyHome contain?
The standard elements of MyHome are: Contract Information – This shows some generic information about the contract such as Contract Details, House Type, Lot Address, Supervisor etc Contract Storyboard  – Our data structures let the builder create a story board around each item in their template about what happens before, during and after an item of work.  This automatically updates the website as progress is updated on the job.  For the client it looks as if someone is personally adding specific and relevant information about the clients’ job in detail.

  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) - An FAQ section provides a preconfigured list of questions and answers of commonly asked things to help pre-empt questions and concerns clients may have.  These FAQ’s are presented during the relevant times and processes of where the job is at making sure the most relevant ones are available for where the contract is up to.
  • Progress Updates - This show selected items from you Preconstruction or Construction workflow.  This can show whether the task is completed and the date it was completed or if it is not completed it can provide a forecast date.  If the builder does not want to show the date that is totally under their control. You can highlight the tasks which require the clients input so they are aware of when their involvement will be required.
  • Photos - This shows the photos that have been loaded up and tagged for the MyHome application.  Our sample website has a control on there to easily enable the viewing of enlarged photos.
  • Notes / Communication - Communication between client, builder’s office and the supervisor can be achieved via notes
  • Documents - The Builders office can make documents available to be viewed such as plans or addenda

Since myhome is based upon a standard set of web services and you can customize our standard website. You can choose what elements you select to provide to your clients, which are tailored to the way you want to do business with them.

We supply our vanilla website, so that you can take that and customise it to make it yours.  We have deliberately designed our vanilla myhome website to be easy to customise, and past customer experience has shown it can take as little as 1 day to get it up and running.
