Keeping custom systems current
Toll Brothers is a national, full-service, multi-disciplined luxury homebuilder with expertise in projects ranging from sophisticated condominium residences to sprawling estate homes at prestigious addresses. Outdated, highly customized AutoCAD technology was becoming increasingly difficult for Toll Brothers to manage and challenging to upgrade in a timely manner. Toll Brothers needed to update and simplify their existing processes in order to regain efficiencies and remain current.
To help address existing processes, Microdesk assisted Toll Brothers by assessing their workflows and project management practices, identifying inefficiencies most critical to address with technology upgrades and new standards. Microdesk then worked with company IT managers to deploy an application environment to maintain support for their existing user interface and update program settings so that features would be transferable between different software versions. This enabled Toll Brothers to maintain custom systems that remained essential to their business operations while at the same time making the transition to upgraded technologies and processes.
