Sales Hook Constellation Home-Builder Systems has developed an interface that links its Web-based sales system, Constellation Sales, to the old PeopleSoft/J.D. Edwards system now owned by Oracle. Dexter Salna, Constellation's president, says that the software maker hired consultants Real Foundations to write the software last year. Salna says that four or five of the industry's leading big builders expressed serious interest in the interface at the International Builders' Show in January.
