Implementation

Following training, the V2C team are extremely keen to start using the Safestart and Tenancy Analytics solutions to understand the occupants of their tenancies by providing accurate customer data, identifying under and over occupying, flagging potential tenancy fraud and using pre-tenancy financial assessments to support tenancy sustainability. In addition, V2C will be using Tenancy Analytics to support vulnerable customers with the rollout of Universal Credit and PayBack to assist in the recovery of former tenant debt.

Success

Greg Andrews, Head of Customer Operations at MRI Software, commented “It’s been a pleasure working with the Valleys To Coast team over the past few weeks to implement MRI. We held four training sessions to staff who were fully engaged and can see the suite as a crucial tool to support their work. I look forward to continuing to work with the team to help them fully realise the benefits of our products.”
