BluTek has chosen Sovereign Business Integration as its implementation partner in the housing sector. BluTek’s BluBrik housing development management system streamlines and automates tasks associated with the housing development lifecycle.
Developed by BluTek specifically for UK housing providers, BluBrik enables the seamless end-to-end management of single or multiple housing projects. BluBrik makes information quickly and easily available to everyone working on a housing development project, taking information from across the organisation to avoid the duplication of work.
The BluBrik feasibility module delivers a financial report based on budget, grants and income, which can be easily refined and submitted to the board of directors for approval. For all active projects, a cashflow module collects information from disparate departments and delivers a daily update on cashflow figures. A defects manager module handles the reporting of defects and hiring of contractors, and can produce a record of contractor performance for quality control.
BluBrik also includes a handover module to collate information from multiple sources into a single report that encompasses an entire housing scheme, and a treasury module that simplifies financial management.
Pete Mylett, managing director, BluTek, said, “We chose to work with Sovereign because they have a fantastic reputation in the housing sector. There is great synergy between our businesses, and having Sovereign as an implementation partner enables us to focus on what we are best at, which is business analysis and software development.”
Jacqui Stoggall, head of housing and public-sector consultancy, Sovereign Business Integration, added, “It is rare to find a purpose-built software package that is written specifically to meet the needs of development and housing management staff as neatly as the BluBrik product. Our knowledge of the housing sector, combined with our analytical and project management experience, should complement the excellent technical skills of the BluTek team.”
