Four has developed a range of social housing software solutions based on our long-term relationships with clients from this industry. Repairs, rent collections, compensation claims; housing organisations process thousands of these transactions, and we know how costly it can be when they go wrong. We have years of experience of supporting social landlords, and can recommend the right IT solutions to manage limited resources and transform financial operations.
We find that housing associations often struggle with inflexible purchasing, accounting and finance systems, and experience immeasurable benefits from an upgrade to a new, computer-based system that can meet the demands of 21st century business. Four specialises in deploying the Professional Advantage iPOS purchasing tool, which is designed for SunSystems accounting users who want to minimise the cost of purchasing and deliver measurable, bottom line savings to the organisation. iPOS promises ease of use when making orders and requisitions, aligned with a capacity to bundle-up requisitions and create purchasing templates that can be used for recurring items – often a big help for users working in the social housing industry.
Our consultants are also aware that cultural change can be an issue for organisations, and work hard to get to know each member of staff and their needs before implementing a new solution.
