K Hovnanian Homes Partners With e-Builder to Launch Nationwide Planning and Entitlement System

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Nov 29, 2006 -- e-Builder, a leader in web-based construction management solutions, today announced that it has partnered with K Hovnanian Homes, the 8th largest home builder in the United States, to launch a national process improvement initiative supported by this system.

K. Hovnanian has been successfully using e-Builder Enterprise™ in its Northeast Region since 2003. This led to a partnership with e-Builder to develop the specific capabilities to help improve internal processes. It is anticipated that the system, used nationwide, will provide significant strategic benefits including efficient development, reduced carrying costs, and unprecedented visibility and collaboration of projects across the entire company.

"With the start of the recent e-Builder implementation in our divisions, we look forward to improved associate communication and productivity," said Dawn Korbelak, Corporate Vice President of Product Development. "The biggest benefit is that we will now have clear visibility into potential issues that can impact our future profits -- critical information especially during the current industry adjustment. We believe that our process, facilitated by e-Builder software, represents a competitive advantage for us in this industry."

e-Builder Enterprise provides document, task, schedule and cost management in an integrated system designed for the residential development process. It benefits corporate teams with provision of status reports, and individual associates through the use of manageable work lists, automated email alerts, and notifications when changes affect their specific tasks.
