“SDS is helping numerous housing organisations have greater control and enjoy the benefits of digital transformation,” said Andrew van Doorn, Chief Executive of HACT. “They are one of a number of software companies who are engaging with the UK Housing Data Standard and can see the evident benefits they bring to the social housing sector.”
“Manifest Software Solutions are the only dedicated systems integrator in the UK housing sector, and are helping numerous organisations to deliver digital transformation,” said Andrew van Doorn, Chief Executive of HACT. “As we continue to develop the UK Housing Data Standards, so more and more housing associations are starting to implement them and are turning to software specialists like Manifest.”
The project partners have been focusing in on the reactive repairs process, an area that the group identified as a business priority for housing associations. Improvements in how data is collected, stored, transferred and analysed could lead to major improvements in service delivery driving cost efficiencies and providing residents with a better customer experience.
“The involvement of Housemark, L&Q, Metropolitan and numerous other housing associations signals that the development of the UK data standards will be accelerated,” said Andrew van Doorn, Chief Executive of HACT. “It’s no longer a question of whether data standards will happen. We believe that once the full data standard is developed, it will be adopted and embraced by the sector.
The project, which paves the way for the adoption of a new, standardised data descriptions across the sector is poised to transform the way housing providers store, interpret and share data. It will enable more effective systems integration, more cost effective technology-led innovation, and better performance benchmarking. It also holds the potential for lower cost overheads associated with mergers, at a time of consolidation across the sector.
