Housing Asset Management

Total housing asset management designed to revolutionise how your stock is managed

The social housing sector brings with it a wide range of complex compliance, legal and auditing requirements which can be hard to manage across multiple systems. Our housing asset management software brings everything you need to meet these requirements. It manages strategic planning and provides full active asset management functionality whilst also ensuring effective day-to-day management and maintenance. Your housing stock data is used throughout the software to help you report and make decisions based on the current and predicted performance.

Housing Asset Management

Built with compliance in mind

Our solution is made up of a range of specialist modules which cover: Location, Surveys, Energy, Asbestos, Servicing, Task Management, HHSRS, Projects, Options Appraisal and Fixed Assets. The new Task Management module has been built with compliance in mind. The user dashboard allows direct processing of tasks automatically generated from trigger events such as a follow up from a fire risk assessment, an upcoming service/inspection or an expired asbestos survey. Actions available for each task include raising repair jobs, and sending letters/emails. As a result, customers are less likely to have compliance issues.

Asset Management

Advantages

  • A range of integrations are available which pass data to and from your housing management, finance, DLO, CRM, EDM and contractor systems.

  • Access our mobile asset management solution via a web browser using any internet-enabled device to complete a range of surveys and inspections. Data is synced back into MRI Housing Asset Management so that your team is always up to date.

  • Stock performance appraisal provides both NPV and points-based assessments from one property up to the whole stock. Investment planning, disposal strategy and the evaluation of alternative future scenarios, can all be undertaken within the system.

  • Full compliance management, including MOT style servicing which means the original expiry date of a safety check is retained when servicing is carried out early, removing any gradual shortening of the service cycle. Task Management helps ensure your compliance is up to date and provides a full audit trail of follow up actions.

  • Energy scenario modelling allows the evaluation of energy improvement options, including funding options.

  • Modules are interconnected, ensuring updates are reflected everywhere required. Importantly, completed works will automatically update the component and servicing data whether originating from the Projects module or from repairs system job completions.

Key Facts

Prior to using Housing Asset Management, our data was held in our housing system and in various spreadsheets which made dealing with compliance, decent homes calculations and asbestos time consuming and cumbersome. As with the other modules, Options Appraisal has not only saved us time and effort but has provided the ability to assess stock performance and analyse reasons for poor performance, all from the same master set of data.
