The Year That Was 2011

It is that time of the year again, where we look back at the year that was and plan for the year that is to come. 2011 was a remarkable year for Conasys, so we thought we'd share a few of the highlights as we wind down for the holiday season.

2011 marked the 5 year anniversary for Conasys as a company. It has been a wild ride, starting out with a tremendous amount of success, experiencing the "housing boom" and then surviving the market crash of 2008. In 5 short years we have gone from a local Vancouver supplier of new home manuals to Canada's largest supplier of Home Information Packages.

2011 was a year of growth, with major developers across the country such as Bosa Properties, Jayman MasterBUILT, Vandyk Group, Cove Properties, Ashcroft Homes, The Sorbara Group and the Unity Builders Group of Companies joining our list of clients. We now proudly call over 300 builders and developers in Canada clients.

Conasys went green this year, becoming members of both BuiltGreen and the Canada Green Building Council. Home Information Packages contribute points toward certification in both programs by providing product documents required for proper operation & maintenance to homeowners, thus reducing wasted energy. We are looking forward to the progression of green building practises in the coming year.

Our Home Information Package's became even more robust in 2011 with the addition of "Warranty Advisor" to the product. Not only will homeowners receive automated email reminders when their scheduled maintenance is due, they now receive reminders when major warranty milestones are about to occur as well as directly after with the notification of remaining coverage.

2011 was a social year for Conasys. Sharing new real estate information and technology trends, Conasys has been creating networks on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Youtube, LinkedIn and by Blogging. It has been a pleasure connecting with clients, homeowners and industry organizations and we look forward to sharing information with new connections in 2012.

Conasys rolled up our sleeves and helped Habitat for Humanity raise over $50,000 in two separate events this year. The Conasys team helped plan and organize the BBQ for Humanity in July, and participated in the Ride for Humanity in September. We also Partied for Humanity in November, but somehow that doesn't feel quite so charitable.

All in all, 2011 was a remarkable year for our company. As we head into 2012, many new and exciting initiatives are set to launch that will help us take the business to an even higher level. Strategic partnerships, product advancements and market expansions are just a few of the things we have on the go. We will continue to provide a world class product and superior customer service to our loyal client base, while at the same time advancing the standards in which information is disclosed to new home buyers.

Stay tuned, 2012 is going to be a big year!
