Kirona has been listed in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 ‘Ones to Watch’ league. The Tech Track 100 ranks Britain’s private technology, media and telecoms companies with the fastest growing sales. Kirona appears in the feature for the first time as a company that has been highlighted as having a promising future, hence its ‘One to Watch’ status.
David Murray, CEO, Kirona, said, “Since its inception in 2003, Kirona has grown every year and has a particularly exciting recent couple of years, having first been invested in by Lloyds Development Capital and then making our first acquisition of fellow technology company Xmbrace. We are moving from strength to strength with the company now employing over 75 people and having recently opened our third office in Caen, France.”
Kirona helps to reduce income deficit problems
With the introduction of universal credit and the likelihood of increased arrears, Kirona has created a new website aimed at helping housing providers to reduce income deficit problems at: www.kirona.com/welfare-reform.
The new website shows housing providers how their income management processes can be streamlined, including scheduling rent arrears collection at the same time as repairs visits and advice on doorstep payments using a chip and pin device connected to a tablet or smartphone.
The website has examples of how housing providers can quickly assess the scope of any income deficit, identify which tenants are in arrears and by how much. In addition, they can see monies recovered, arrears by region or team and arrears profiling and officer performance. There is also a forecasting tool to show trends against expected rental income.
