Spring Housing has installed ActiveH Lite, the new entry-level version of MIS AMS’s full-functionality ActiveH housing management software.
As a relatively new charity working with people affected by homelessness, Spring Housing didn’t have masses of data to migrate to its new system, so ActiveH Lite can scale and grow with the organisation from the outset. It will provide a hub of knowledge for Spring Housing’s 25 staff as well as ensuring there is an audit trail to demonstrate that it’s operating within the agreed terms of its contracted suppliers.
Raj Shergill, director of housing & corporate services, Spring Housing, said, “We had been using Excel spreadsheets to manage our properties, rents, repairs and other tenant services but we knew this wasn’t sustainable in the long term. We are growing, so we needed a housing management system that could grow with us, yet we have no plans to become enormous, so we didn’t feel we needed the full functionality of some of the more expensive housing management systems.
“MIS AMS ActiveH Lite fits our requirements completely because it’s flexible and provides scalability, and we still have the holistic suite encompassing CRM, rent accounting, reporting, repairs and in future, mobile working.”
MIS AMS said that ActiveH Lite is a user-friendly solution which is easy to learn and use, and compared with some of the other ‘lite’ options, has much more functionality.
Chris McLaughlin, chief executive, MIS AMS, said, “ActiveH Lite is all about starting as you mean to go on. It provides the best of our large-scale, full-functionality housing management system, but scaled down to suit smaller, growing housing providers.”
