Salix Homes has completed its implementation of Ancoris Maps for Housing. The implementation, which follows a wider IT transformation programme, will enable the housing provider to use geographic data for better informed business decisions and improved operational efficiency.
Ancoris Maps for Housing is an online mapping and visualisation application that gives users access to live data such as property types, voids, rent arrears and neighbourhood patches, all overlaid on a familiar Google Maps visual.
Sian Grant, director for customer services, Salix Homes, said, “Ancoris Maps for Housing fitted perfectly with our vision of a more responsive and agile organisation. The application was up and running in less than six weeks and the early indications are very positive.”
Accessible from any device, the online application combines operational data with location elements. Data can be filtered and analysed to identify trends and patterns, such as reducing rent arrears by visualising information to plan and take preventative action and providing data to better allocate properties by matching tenant needs to local areas.
