Technology as a win-win-win
By 2011, we’d begun work on the product that would later become RentSense. This product sums up our belief in technology for good.
Today, RentSense is a proven win-win-win proposition, adopted as an industry standard solution by over 170 social housing organisations across the UK:
Win Win Win
Better financial performance as regards the arrears collection process.
Ways to give staff more time contacting and assisting tenants facing difficulties.
Better outcomes for tenants via early intervention, support and advice.
Algorithms and predictive analytics
Today, we are experts in the technologies that lie behind RentSense. We understand the power of data – especially large amounts of non-intrusive transactional data – to predict what comes next in terms of an individual’s behaviour. We are experts in the creation of algorithms, the complex rules that prioritise, sift, filter and predict.
