Stonewater has completed one of the first full integrations of MIS-AMS’s ActiveH software with the Pamwin software commonly used for housing developments, with project management and technical support from 3C Consultants.
Data about Stonewater’s housing developments is managed by Pamwin and then transferred to Stonewater’s ActiveH housing system once the scheme has been completed. Until now, the data transfer has been done using spreadsheets and manual inputs from Stonewater’s development team, making it a tedious, error-prone and time-consuming task.
Stonewater has now successfully transformed the process and launched a data integration with ActiveH. Stonewater’s systems automatically transfer the property details from Pamwin to ActiveH.
Joe DeMeyer, business systems developer, Stonewater, said, “This project hit so many buttons. Because it allows the seamless transfer of data, we can operate much more efficiently. Until now we’ve had to input data via CSV files and manual processes. This new direct-integration approach means there is one single source of data.”
In addition to automating the data transfer, the system now also distributes information about any new housing developments to all relevant Stonewater staff. For example, the finance team receive information on social rent calculations, revenue audit reports and financial services reports.
Meanwhile, for staff involved in housing and asset management, the integration means the automation of asset attributes should reduce the chances of any incorrect asset details being assigned to properties.
Holly Edwards, head of lettings, Stonewater, said, “Data is vital to everything that we do, especially when it comes to lettings. It’s important that when homes come up for let, all the information is immediately there at our fingertips. The ActiveH/Pamwin integration provides assurance that our data is timely and accurate, enabling faster re-letting of our properties in future.”
Charles Brooks, programme director, 3C Consultants, said, “This was a complex project involving three different parties and one of the first real-time integrations of Pamwin and ActiveH. Thanks to Stonewater’s commitment to dedicated project resources and strong project governance, the project was successfully delivered in a timely manner.”
