MiTek Homebuilder Software: Update from Leadership on Dev Progress  

Mikko Halttunen, Director of Software


Over the last 18 months, MiTek has invested time, energy and significant resources to the Homebuilder Solutions Group. These investments allowed us to hire additional development, support, implementation and client engagement team members, with the goal of providing best-in-class software – and a best-in-class experience – for our customers.


I am excited to lead the MiTek Homebuilder Solutions software engineering team and proud of what we have accomplished to date. We know that we have more work to do, but we are excited about the progress and momentum gained since mid-2019.


Since I joined MiTek and Jouko Väkiparta 12 years ago, the team has worked side-by-side with MiTek Kova customers, building strong relationships and navigating both exciting and challenging times. Those relationships helped us better understand your business and needs, so we could work together to find the right solutions. 


Our software team – made up of development, software architecture, quality assurance and product ownership – is committed to taking the same approach with all MiTek Homebuilder Solutions customers. Our vision is to help transform the way homes are built, and that transformation begins with you.


An important part of your experience is transparent communication and receiving timely updates on key milestones for the products you own. Below is a schedule of all remaining development milestones in 2020*. These span all MiTek homebuilder software products – including MiTek Kova, MiTek Blackpoint, MiTek Sales Simplicity, MiTek BuilderMT and MiTek Wrightsoft.


*Milestones are firm to the best of our abilities, but subject to change. Any changes will be communicated as quickly as possible to mitigate impact to your business.
