After more than 20 years in the home building business, Lusant Ordoñez knows what it takes to run a successful company: a laser-sharp focus on customers and their priorities, a passion for quality and detail, and a commitment to using technology at every opportunity to run lean but at maximum productivity.
The company he founded in 2005, Zenodro Homes in Lake Mary, Florida, is on track to post its best year ever. However, even though Ordoñez and his team expect to finish 96 homes by year-end, employee head count is still unlikely to reach double figures.
There are several key reasons for the company’s sky-high productivity, but one of the most important, says Ordoñez, is its use of MarkSystems home building management software from ECi Software Solutions.
Ordoñez has been a MarkSystems user since 2011, when friend and veteran homebuilder, Bill Orosz of Orlando-based Hanover Family Builders, recommended the program to him.
