Hear what our customers are saying about Community Central, the tracking tool that was the inspiration for Developer Central…
“Community Central not only tracks each property’s status but literally every document associated with that property is archived in one place. It helps both me and my staff at the City of Chicago to have access to Community Central right alongside the Mercy team. As a result, we don’t keep paper files, which saves time and money. Community Central’s value hits home for me every time the City is visited by HUD’s Technical Assistance Providers, by our own auditing firm or by a monitoring visit from HUD itself: They can answer their own questions on all of our housing development with just a read-only password and five minutes of training on Community Central! The reports from Community Central are critical to meeting our goal of providing the City’s stakeholders and public with accurate and timely information relevant to our mission-critical neighborhood stabilization activities.”
Chicago Department of Housing and Economic Development
“Community Central offers the 12 cities and 8 land banks in the $223 million Michigan NSP2 Consortium a nimble tool for project tracking, due diligence for project and grants management and reporting. Managers use Community Central as a ‘Dashboard’ to keep track of properties, projects, developers and partners engaged in neighborhood stabilization projects.
Community Central helps grantees streamline their work flow processes for property acquisition, demolition and rehab and construction management. The system forces its users to define in detail who does what, when, with what approvals and what required documentation. Community Central has emerged as the premier tool for the integration of Project and Grants Management all at the same time. We love how the transparency of Community Central holds all of us accountable to perform."

“Community Central (CC) has been a tremendous tool for Neighborhood Housing Services of South Florida (NHSSF) and HomeOwnership Realty LLC. It serves as a central repository for all documents for our acquisition, construction and home sales. Community Central has been easy to use, we have had little or no significant technical problems, and we have found that using CC is rather intuitive. Documents upload easily, data storage is well sorted and labeled, access is easy and the program is robust-we probably are only utilizing a portion of the program.
We are happy to endorse Community Central as a valuable tool for real estate development activities. If you have questions please feel free to contact me.”

"From an IT prospective, the implementation of Community Central was a pleasant experience due to the vendor having previous deployments and a defined road map. Our users learned the system fast; again the vendor used the most common web standards for this system, making it very easy for the normal user to adapt to the new program. After implementation, staff couldn't survive without Community Central. We love it!!!”
City of Phoenix
“I find Community Central to be extremely efficient, particularly when doing large trifurcated transactions. It has saved both time and money being able to pull documents that were recorded as part of previous phases of the transaction available for the later stages, negating the need to pull from the title company or county. Both the uploading and access are simple and fast.”
