Propeller, formerly known as VanCert, has launched a new digital platform for housing providers and their contractors to use their existing repairs and maintenance data to achieve better legislative compliance.
Propeller takes all the data generated from housing providers’ repairs and maintenance activities and converts it into accurate and up-to-date information on service provision and performance. This is then available in real time to all stakeholders via a combination of dedicated KPI and compliance dashboards.
With a dedicated reporting dashboard for each service, housing providers’ administrative staff and engineers can identify problems, raise a task or response and then track the job through to completion, effectively closing the loop on compliance. Information is always accurate because engineers and other service operatives can update their progress on jobs in real-time while in the field.
Dave Wilson, operations director, Propeller, said, “We know that after implementing Propeller, customers report an average saving of two hours per day for each engineer, administrator and compliance manager they employ.
“Our aim was to make innovative technology affordable, with transparent pricing and as risk-free as possible for budget-conscious housing providers. It’s up to the user whether they implement Propeller as a replacement for one or all of their current field-service management systems, or as an additional layer to complement and boost the productivity of their existing systems. Either way, they will have an interactive compliance dashboard showing real-time data to achieve 100 per cent compliance across all services, ultimately giving them a single version of the truth.”
