Improves Job Satisfaction

Before its existence, those chasing rent arrears could only hope that they were making the best use of their time. With RentSense in the mix, job satisfaction increases, as officers can be sure that they are making the right calls in the right order – and making more of a difference to tenant outcomes.

Reduces workload and frees up time

RentSense can reduce an officer’s caseload by more than 50%, allowing for individuals on the front-line to spend more time on the more delicate situations, where human interaction can make all the difference. RentSense also frees up more time for other tasks, such as helping colleagues, preparing court papers, and involving others in particularly challenging situations. 

RentSense helps Income Officers to:

What income officers say about RentSense

It has been a big help, it has reduced the number of cases we look at, and it prioritises them. It is also really effective in identifying where Universal Credit or Housing Benefit have stopped or changed. That means we can get to the people at very early stages to intervene.

Whiteinch & Scotstoun Housing Association

With RentSense you feel more organised and we focus our attention where it needs to be, and we get through our caseload now, which before was unheard of.
Jacquie Gardener
Cairn Housing

I think it’s a brilliant system, it gives you a clear caseload so there is no trawling through a spreadsheet for work. It really simplifies what you need to do each day, and there is very little stress involved.
Phil Davies

The officers love it. One said to me ‘It’s absolutely brilliant!’ It would not be an exaggeration to say it has transformed that officer. Each week they now complete 100% of their work.
