They will range in size from 3,500 heated square feet to 4,200 heated square feet. They will have brick and stone facades and architectural shingles. Stonecrest will be debuting its new master on the main plan, the Dover, there also.

Stonecrest’s Efficiency Leads to Affordable Homes for Buyers

Stonecrest Homes has chosen to adopt the FAST Builder Management System to help manage their business. The FAST system is a fully integrated home builder management system. It has built-in integrated functions that handle all aspects of Project Management, Estimating, Purchasing, Scheduling, Customer Service, Job Cost Reporting, Sales & Marketing, Accounting, Payroll and Financial Reports.

Stonecrest Homes’ Purchasing & Estimating Manager Nick Reuter has created their FAST System database and it is now fully operational. The implementation was started mid-April 2010 and was completed in October 2010 for all communities. The operations side of the system is “live” with the production of Purchase Orders, Change Orders, Sales Pricing and Scheduling. The accounting side of the system is also now “live” with Check Writing and Financial Reporting. The system is set to generate Stonecrest’s balance sheet, income statement and indirect cost reports on a monthly and quarterly basis as needed.

“Having used FAST throughout my 22 year career as a national homebuilder, I cannot stress enough the importance of utilizing the FAST platform when creating a new production homebuilding company such as Stonecrest,” said Charles Heiser, Jr, CEO and co-owner. “It’s successful implementation and disciplined daily use is truly the bedrock foundation of any efficient and well managed homebuilder.”

Stonecrest’s attention to efficiency helps to create Affordable Homes of Distinction for their buyers. For information on Stonecrest’s homes and floor plans, visit www.stonecresthomesga.com.
