"Version 2.0 of the UK Housing Data Standards includes nine new data exchanges in the reactive repairs process and a significant update to the Reference Data Model," explained Andrew van Doorn, Chief Executive of HACT. "It will help housing providers to deliver better services, improve customer satisfaction and save resources. And thanks to our funders, it is available free to all social housing providers."
Every decade or so, housing technology goes through a period of transformational change. The early eighties saw the digitisation of historic paper ledger and spreadsheet based businesses. The late eighties and early nineties saw housing management systems hitting individual desktops as network technology progressed. Ten years later saw the effective integration of housing managers into IT systems through the deployment of mobile technology – PDAs and more recently iPads.
