Bristol Charities, a provider of social housing in Bristol and South Wales, has implemented MIS AMS’s ActiveH Lite, an entry-level housing management system that will help the charity manage 88 units, mostly within almshouses.
Andy Dixon, finance director, Bristol Charities, said, “We were using an accounts system and spreadsheets that were simply becoming cumbersome and no longer tailored to our growth – we were merely ‘making do’ which isn’t ideal.
“ActiveH Lite is primarily a business system, not a finance system, and it’s making our lives much easier, while providing all the functionality we need in terms of generating statements and keeping our remote employees ahead of the curve.
“The remote working is an enormous bonus to the team – giving them the information they need about rents at their fingertips while also being able to capture and update important information about tenants on the spot.”
Chris McLaughlin, managing director, MIS AMS, said, “Many smaller housing providers think that they can’t afford a system with the functionality they’d like from an entry-level HMS system, but they’d be wrong.
“ActiveH Lite has everything they need. From rent and arrears, to a basic CRM system combined with remote access, it’s all there, and is totally scalable as the organisation grows.”
