Castle Computer Services has developed a simple QlikView-based system that quickly identifies tenants affected by the Housing Reform Act.
The Castle system integrates easily with existing housing management systems and any manually collated data to cross-reference tenant details against the Welfare Reform Act criteria to establish which households will receive reduced benefits. It also calculates the percentage reduction in benefit for those tenants who are deemed to have extra bedrooms under the Act.
George Strathie, software and services director, Castle Computer Services, said: “QlikView is a highly cost-effective business intelligence tool that integrates seamlessly with housing management systems and is incredibly user-friendly. It is extremely useful in helping housing providers to closely monitor the impact of the Housing Reform Act and provides a detailed and up-to-date picture at all times.”
The new system also gives accurate predictions of changes in future circumstances as family members grow older, which helps housing providers to work with tenants and support their future needs.
