Hexagon Software has just released its LandMark 4 housing management system. The web-based HMS provides immediate access to real-time data while eliminating time-consuming manual processes.
LandMark 4 has an easy-to-view dashboard that automatically delivers KPIs customised for individual users, and can be configured to provide high-level overviews of performance indicators such as rent collections, net rental yields, average length of unexpired leases and occupation rates.
Case management functionality means that tasks relating to specific events can be tracked and assigned, with clear highlighting for important actions such as rent reviews, lease expiries and break clauses. LandMark 4 enables all tasks to be managed within a single system, removing the need for staff to maintain to-do lists in other applications such as Outlook or Excel. This provides greater visibility of what is needed to run the business on a daily basis and ensures that all necessary work is completed, regardless of unexpected absences or sickness.
Mitchell Hill, managing director, Hexagon Software, said, “LandMark 4 has been written from the ground up to leverage the latest technologies with a modern user interface that requires less training, results in faster user adoption and delivers a system that people will actually enjoy using.
“By taking this approach, and not just using a web-based front-end to re-skin legacy software, we can respond quickly to changing customer demands and take advantage of the opportunities offered by advances in mainstream technology.”
LandMark 4 includes an integrated document editor and provides rapid storage and access to supporting documents such as leases, correspondence, legal documents, inspection certificates and photographs. Integrated mapping allows users to zoom in to street level views, check locations or download directions. Standard reports can be created either on-demand or automatically emailed as PDFs to relevant staff on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, including data from other internal systems such as finance or HR.
Hill said, “LandMark 4 costs up to 40 per cent less to buy and implement compared with similarly specified systems, and also has lower on-going costs.”
