Document Management Software for Social Housing

Our document management systems decrease the pressure on Social Housing organisations to provide a better service for their tenants, residents and prospective buyers by integrating with housing management systems.

Documents and information are captured, stored and edited in digital document trays then stored securely in a centralised filing cabinet ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. Staff can quickly retrieve documents within seconds without having to leave their desks.

The history of a tenant or property can be tracked and followed from the planning stage to handing over the keys. Tenant requests can be answered and processed immediately.  Digital signature software can also be be used to speed up tenant agreement processing and contract renewals.

Dedicated document management systems deliver improvements in efficiency and productivity across the board. Drive growth, reduce costs and better manage your operations.Read how we helped Mosscare St Vincent's Housing Group
