PIMSS Data Systems has launched Viability, a stock assessment tool for analysing housing and associated stock performance. The cloud-hosted tool enables housing providers to evaluate stock against both financial (NPV) and strategic sustainability criteria and then examine the effects of changes to these from a property, street, postcode area, block, estate or town level.
Financial data can be incorporated to facilitate accurate performance assessment and sustainability criteria can be assessed in conjunction with financial performance and within the context of organisational objectives.
Comprehensive reports, including mapping functions, downloadable graphs and tables, can be produced and options appraisals undertaken to support disposal or investment decisions.
As a cloud hosted solution, PIMSS said that Viability is highly secure, and with a flexible licence and no additional IT resources needed, investment is low risk and can be met from housing providers’ operating budgets.
Martin McDonnell, managing director, PIMSS Data Systems, said, “Viability fully integrates with PIMSS Asset Management and in doing so offers housing providers a real-time view of housing assets to support enhanced evidence-based decision-making. With the launch of Viability, we are enabling housing providers to make informed decisions that will allow them to take a strategic and long-term approach to capital investments in their housing stock.”
