Discover powerful business application solutions, configured to the needs of your business and the housing industry.

In the UK, Housing Associations have seen increasingly high delivery targets – but in a business landscape that has less stability and more competition. There are more sources of information available than ever before, it’s just difficult to know how to best utilise that data. Residents expect an “everything, everywhere” multi-channel approach to communication but without a lot of manual work and investment this seems impossible. The Internet of Things (IoT) offers huge potential for housing providers to generate a huge wealth of data for analysis, data-driven decisions, and predictive forecasting, and nearly half of organisations rated IoT as being important to their overall strategies.

Why Choose A Business Application Solution for Housing Associations?

We offer a range of business applications to suit the ever-changing needs of organisations within the housing industry. Using world-class technology, you empower your staff to do more, in less time. These powerful tools coupled with Perfect Image’s value-add IT services and Housing Association specialisation means that you get the exact productivity-boosting solution that you need.

Connect and unify your people, processes and data
Build better, longer-lasting relationships with tenants
Reduce costs through automated business processes

You need to be able to efficiently oversee and manage tenants, properties, maintenance staff, contractors, and much more. Microsoft Dynamics 365 provides you and your team with the visibility so desperately needed for housing providers to enhance customer service. Bring customer service and field service staff closer together by tying together back-office operations (asset, finance and document management) with front-office processes (property sales and tenancy management). Working with you to understand your existing challenges, we will work with you on a consultative, partnership approach to find the best way of building and tailoring a business application solution to fulfil your goals.

Customer Service

Gain a whole view of every customer so you can utilise accurate information to build deeper, longer-lasting relationships with tenants and better serve their needs. For example, with Microsoft Portals you can easily build customer-facing webpages to enable a multi-channel communication strategy with customers to reduce costs and provide a far improved customer service. A Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM solution also seamlessly connects with housing management and third-party systems. Many business processes can also be optimised and then automated within your business to save staff hours of time, and lots of frustration. For example, using workflows to assign tasks to sales owners, and tracking communications in CRM.

Connected Field Service

Take advantage of intelligence to help you resolve service issues before they occur, reduce operational costs, and deliver positive onsite experiences. Efficiently manage your field service workforce with drag-and-drop scheduling and map view. Use a mobile-ready CRM system like Microsoft Dynamics 365 so field staff can use it even on the go, on any device. Self-service app creation is a must in today’s ever-changing business landscape. With Microsoft PowerApps, you can easily build intelligent apps to quickly meet the needs of your organisation. IoT provides a plethora of data you can explore to provide remote monitoring for proactive and predictive maintenance. Empower technicians with a 360-degree view of your customers and real-time guidance to improve resolution time and earn customer trust.

Analytics and Predictive Insights

Bringing your data together from all business systems gives you accurate, up-to-date information about tenants, houses, financials, sales, and more. These facts and numbers can be translated into stunning, easy-to-explore data visualisations using Power BI. Using other data analytics tools, you can even take advantage of advanced analytics, including predictive analytics to make more informed decisions for your business, and geospatial analytics for location-based insights.
