Housing Partners has launched a new version of its Housing Hub, with greater emphasis on data analytics.
The new service comprises a number of cloud-based modules aimed at giving housing providers the tools they need to not only identify and support tenants in greatest need, but also to uncover and analyse correlations across their tenant and asset data sets.
At the core of the new Housing Hub are centralised GIS mapping, analytics and searching tools, along with Housing Partners’ HomeSwapper service. Housing Hub also includes Insight (formerly known as Who’s Home) which layers tenant data alongside data from third parties to give a more detailed view of tenants’ circumstances, and an asset management module to model the future profitability and financial requirements of housing providers’ property portfolios.
Jenny McCulloch, director of product innovation, Housing Partners, said, “With housing providers having to manage multiple factors, from the implementation of universal credit to the introduction of the new HCA regulatory framework, being able to quickly identify tenants who need support, be alerted to those tenants who pose a potential risk or uncover issues with assets that require action is vital.
“Accurate and up to date data must be the bedrock of any business strategy and it is good quality tenant and asset information that underpins the new Housing Hub, giving our customers the insight and analytical capabilities that they need.”
