Islington and Shoreditch Housing Association has signed a three-year contract with PIMSS Data Systems to retain its asset management software and add an asbestos module to manage its portfolio of properties.
The decision to extend its use of the PIMSS software was based on the housing provider’s review of comparable asset management software and wholesale staff changes. Since the start of 2018, the asbestos module has been implemented and all data cleansed and uploaded to the system.
PIMSS has also given the housing provider’s staff additional training on the asset management system and made updates to its stock condition survey form.
Dawn Harrisson, head of customer homes, Islington and Shoreditch Housing Association, said, “We have identified our asset management strategy as far as 2020, with the aim of delivering capital investments, planned and cyclical maintenance, repairs to empty properties and responsive repair programmes in a structured and sustainable way. The PIMSS system will play a vital role in helping us to achieve this vision.”
