Housing Management

Managing thousands of properties, from private houses to council flats, is no simple task. Keeping track of each home and every property, all with different rent and service charges, different ages and conditions, and with varying restrictions and legal implications, is a constant challenge. To ensure the properties are properly maintained, tenants’ needs are met, suppliers are monitored and vacancies reduced, a substantial amount of collating, storing and analysing of volumes of information is required. There are many challenges including: the time and effort preparing the information, different versions of reports and the difficulty in accessing and using the collated information in an easy and effective way. With such a large and varied client and supplier base, it is essential that social landlords are able to keep track of maintenance, payments and other key metrics attached to every property under management.

Our Key Reports Solution provides a fast solution to information needs. By using a modular approach we can deliver essential information on Rent, Arrears, Maintenance, Voids and Finance quickly and easily.

Each module comes complete with the facility to automatically extract and process raw data from the standard housing applications such as IBS, Orchard, Comino, Anite and Academy.

Keeping track of sales, inventory and stock movements can be a daily challenge. Our wholesale & retail solution allows management to track inventory and sales on a daily basis. You will be given the tools to analyse trends, spot stock shortages and help plan for the peaks and troughs that every business experiences. The Sales module tracks sales by product, region, sales rep, store, and product type. The inventory module provides a current and a time-trended view of the stock position and allows you to understand the current position and the trends that impact your business.


Call Centre & Service Centre

You need to manage and monitor call and service centre applications, suppliers, and service providers against SLAs. We can help you to get reports, exception alerts and an analysis of service levels delivered to clients and customers. Managing a call centre presents the constant challenge of improving throughput, maintaining quality and trying to fix problems first time round. Conflicting metrics of average call time, number of first time fixes and number of repeat calls all impact the overall quality of the experience.

To help understand the service levels being delivered by suppliers or experienced by customers our call centre and service monitoring application helps track the key metrics which occur in call and service centres. The tools report the number of outstanding calls by priority, service provider, if the Service Level Agreement (SLA) has been breached and if so, by how much.

Some of the Key Metrics provided:

  • Number of outstanding calls, which can be sorted by priority, level and duration of breach, supplier or asset type.
  • Number of calls or changes completed in time.
  • Number of calls within or outside a service level agreement.
  • Average performance of a service provided or received by a customer.
