About HomeSource Systems
Through 20+ years of growth and innovation, the HomeSource team has maintained a singular vision: to make life simpler for retailers and manufacturers by aggregating large amounts of data into one single, usable system.
Today, that vision is blending with new cloud technology in ways that would have seemed impossible even a decade ago. It is now possible to bring together millions of pieces of information – including item numbers, product specs, training videos, and more – into an app that can be used and updated in real-time. The result isn’t just useful, it’s groundbreaking.
Our proprietary software makes it possible for retailers to print customized quotes and manuals for customers on an on-demand basis. It lets them give accurate shipping times and lets them generate collateral materials like signage or rebate forms in moments. It allows manufacturers to update sizes, colors, and options instantaneously so dealers always have current and accurate information at their fingertips. It even allows for improved e-commerce and in-store marketing materials.
HomeSource can do all of this and more because many of the traditional limitations on business efficiency disappear when everyone has the same data to work with. With up-to-date information provided in a consistent format, the errors and delays that used to be so common between different parts of the big-ticket retail sector are immediately resolved.
Although we work with cloud-based apps and systems, we have never forgotten that we are in the business of solving problems. That means we’ll keep working hard to find new ways to help you benefit from accurate content and streamlined processes. In the meantime, follow the links below to learn more about the different ways we can help your business to be smarter and more profitable.
As CEO of HomeSource, Jim is responsible for supervising the sales team and managing the direction of the company with his brother Greg. These roles come naturally to him after 20+ years of experience in the tech innovation industry.
Customers describe him as someone who loves finding new answers to old problems, and the kind of person who answers his phone at any time of the day or night. A graduate of LaSalle University, Jim first discovered his love of technology and its potential while learning about web services with GE’s aircraft division.
When he’s not meeting with new customers or thinking about information in the cloud, Jim loves spending time with his family. He’s lucky enough to say he’s married to the love of his life, along with two kids.
Greg has a number of roles at HomeSource. Officially, he’s President, founder, and COO of the company. In more practical terms, it’s hard to really describe the numerous visible and behind-the-scenes jobs he handles.
Armed with nearly two decades of experience and a degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Greg’s passion is for designing systems for challenges others in the industry insist can’t be fixed. He likes big puzzles, mostly because they’re the most satisfying ones to solve.
When he’s not helping to guide the company or working on an immense technical challenge, Greg spends time with his three dogs. He’s a big fan of all the Philly sports teams, and also enjoys comic books and video games.
As our director of support and training, Mark Benkowski is known for his patient approach and love of solving problems for our customers. No matter what the issue is, he’s always looking for a way to make your day a little easier, and our technology a bit more useful.
A graduate of University Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Marcus has several years of experience with troubleshooting and tech support. Away from the office, he enjoys spending time with his family, playing with his dogs, and watching sports.
Michele serves as our point of contact for software development and customer support. A life-long technology enthusiast, she found her calling after taking her first computer class in high school. She loves the fact that every day she spends at HomeSource brings new puzzles to be solved.
Before joining us, Michele studied at Rowan University. When she’s not being a “complete nerd” in her own words, she spends time with her husband and their two crazy Jack Russell dogs.
Chet gives us all of the best qualities of a dedicated programmer, along with a wealth of relevant experience. With 40+ years of work behind him, there aren’t many tech challenges he hasn’t seen and overcome already.
A DeVry Tech alumni, Chet says thing he enjoys most about working for HomeSource is the opportunity to create useful tools that can be applied in real-world businesses. When he’s not at work he likes to spend time with his family, hang out with his dog, and work on his car.
Patrick is our Lead Architect for Operational Systems and our resident genius. Over his two-plus decades of technology experience, he’s put in time with NASA and the Cancer Research and Treatment wing of Emory Hospital in Atlanta.
Often described by our customers as a “passionate pitbull who won’t let go of a problem,” it’s probably not surprising that Patrick graduated with a degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. When he’s not imagining new breakthroughs in technology, he enjoys activities like woodworking, skeet shooting, and mountain biking with his four kids.
John is a man with multiple roles and responsibilities at HomeSource, pitching in with customer support, programming, and software testing. He will tell you that his real job is to “make software so great customers brag about it.”
A proud graduate of Rowen University, John boasts nearly four decades of professional experience. When he’s not solving problems and thinking of creative solutions, he spends time on the five joys of his personal life: faith, family, friends, fishing, and music.
