SASSHA has reported that although smaller housing providers may not have the IT budgets or the training to get to grips with some of the more complicated housing software, they still need the same operational capabilities as the larger housing providers, but simply on a smaller scale.
To address this, SASSHA has spent three years building a rapid application modelling tool. This can be used to create any ‘anywhere’ application; that is, software that runs on any device, anywhere. As well as integrating with the company’s own housing software, SASSHA ICE can also be a used in a stand-alone environment to link systems together and ‘mobile enable’ legacy systems.
SASSHA’s mobile applications (known as ICE Cubes) can be used by customer service staff, contractors, tenants, housing staff, support workers, maintenance staff and even board members using our BoardCube, running on any iOS, Android or Window device.
Laura Woodfin from SASSHA said, “Our unified user interface brings Facebook-style operation to complex business software, thereby reducing the need for expensive bespoke training. Furthermore, our ability to meet changing demands for mobile working and to rapidly accommodate new business models is unique in this sector and saves on massive development costs.
“SASSHA ICE is our commitment to the small social housing sector that seems to have been forgotten by other niche software providers.”
