Kent Homechoice has chosen Huume for the next generation of its digital housing-needs management software.
With over 100,000 properties in its combined stock portfolio, Kent Homechoice comprises an alliance of 28 housing associations and 13 local authorities providing social and affordable housing across the county.
Huume’s SaaS-based software will be used by Kent Homechoice’s alliance members for housing registers, choice-based lettings, social lettings, homelessness, temporary accommodation and referrals.
The new solution will bring all housing, tenant and applicant information together in a customisable platform, giving the members of the alliance the ability to adapt the system themselves. The project also includes the implementation of Huume’s self-service portal for Kent Homechoice’s residents.
Kent Homechoice’s spokesperson said, “We’re delighted to have partnered with Huume to deliver a flexible housing-needs system. Not only does Huume meet legislative requirements, but it also provides us with intuitive pre-assessment and housing application forms, an agile choice-based lettings module, a flexible housing options solution and simple HCLIC reporting. It will also enable us to build cross-module reports and to make referrals to outside agencies.”
