What Is BuilderGM?
BuilderGM is a new cloud-based software-as-a-service application designed by Hyphen Solutions to bring its innovative project management features and efficiencies to smaller custom, local and regional Home Builders and remodelers. If you build 1 to 50 projects per year, you can now have a cloud-based construction ERP that’s perfect for your business, mobile-friendly, cost-effective and quick and easy to set up and use.
Features of BuilderGM
BuilderGM offers you the ability to work anywhere and collaborate easily and in real-time through the BuilderGM portal with your back-office and field team, Trades, Suppliers and even customers. It keeps everyone on the same page throughout the project and can increase productivity team-wide (which can boost profits).

Comparing Hyphen’s Home Builder Construction ERPs
Not every Home Builder has the same needs. That’s why Hyphen Solutions offers three different integrated construction management platforms or ERPs.
BRIX is an all-in-one cloud-based residential construction ERP software with accounting. This fully integrated platform offers access to the most efficient solutions available, no matter how many projects a Builder handles each year. BRIX allows control over job costing, purchasing, accounting, production and more. Perfect for larger and higher production Home Builders.
Hyphen HomeFront is a fully integrated on-premise residential construction ERP software for companies that build 50 to 1,000 homes per year. It helps efficiently manage processes from sales selections and contracts to estimating and purchasing, to service and warranty all in one system and offers integration with popular accounting software such as QuickBooks, Sage and Xero.
These two residential construction ERPs have differences in features. Only BRIX, for example, will auto-generate a purchase order from an estimate/plan. Only HomeFront offers detailed cost item estimations/analysis. However, BuilderGM actually offers both of these features to Home Builders and remodelers who handle less than 50 projects per year — at lower cost and with less implementation time than our software solutions for larger companies.
