Clearview Systems has enhanced its performance management software to allow HouseMark subscribers to automatically upload their national club performance indicator information directly from Clearview to HouseMark, removing the need for any duplication of data entry.
Many of the HouseMark headline indicators are already used by housing providers to manage, monitor and report performance information to a multitude of audiences. The inclusion of HouseMark indicators in Clearview’s performance scorecard module means they can be used internally by Clearview users and then instantly submitted electronically to HouseMark.
Ross Fraser, chief executive, HouseMark, said, “One of our objectives is to make data entry as easy as possible for our members. By working in partnership with Clearview, we expect to substantially improve the ease and speed of data submission.”
Clearview said that it expected the enhanced automation of performance reporting would free performance teams from data entry duties and let them focus on investigating and interpreting performance information.
HouseMark, which is jointly owned by the Chartered Institute of Housing and the National Housing Federation, has around 900 members and provides benchmarking information to housing providers. With the majority of Clearview customers also HouseMark members, the software company expects that over 100 housing providers will be able to streamline their performance indicator data collection and submission processes.
Planned developments to the system include the provision of ‘quartile data’ from HouseMark to allow benchmark comparisons with peer organisations directly within the Clearview software.
