Homelessness charity Watford & District YMCA is using Omniledger’s Pyramid solution to address a number of specialist requirements as well as integration with its existing finance system.
As part of the implementation, OmniLedger designed an entire ‘meal ticket management system’. This meal ticket system is fully integrated with the existing resident database and meal tickets are printed for each resident when they scan their key fob at a scanning station. This is then recorded in the resident’s history file so that Watford YMCA can quickly identify residents that are not taking meals, which can be extremely useful and can help us identify residents with potential problems.
Nick Yarham, ICT project manager, Watford YMCA, said, “By installing a single integrated system from OmniLedger for rents, repairs, cash receipting, arrears control and void management, along with an extensive range of reporting and workflow tools, we will achieve major efficiency savings for our service users and customers.”
OmniLedger is also developing an ‘occupancy viewer’ for Watford YMCA. This is a web page that uses live data from Pyramid to display each floor, the rooms on each floor, and with the occupancy status of the room, together with the gender of the occupants. This helps Watford YMCA to quickly find appropriate accommodation.
The order was placed in November 2013 and Watford & District YMCA went live on time and within budget in April 2014.
