Adapting Quickly To Meet Customers' Needs Akel Homes prides itself on being nimble, adapting quickly, and adopting new technologies to improve the home buyer journey. And unlike other mid- size builders, they do not offer pre-built design packages. Instead, Akel gives new home buyers the ability to customize room by room, providing hundreds of design options. In early 2020, Akel made the decision to add the Envision online design center to their shopper experience. "Akel customers embrace the ability to completely customize their design options, but we're the first to admit that it can be overwhelming," said Alex Akel, President of Akel Homes. "We knew that Envision would remove a lot of the confusion and provide our new home buyers the flexibility to shop and personalize their home at their pace and when it fits their schedule." The decision to embrace online design couldn't have come at a better time. Just weeks after Akel began their Envision implementation, the world began to shut down in person experiences because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Having a solution like Envision meant that Akel was uniquely poised in their market to allow buyers to continue to build their dream home. "We chose Envision because it's a plug-and-play solution that eliminates a lot of the confusion that comes with personalizing a new home," said Mr. Akel. "We were able to deploy quickly because there is a wealth of manufacturing data already in the system and efficiencies in the process due to so many other builders using the technology."
