Housing Contact

Housing Contact has grown rapidly over the past 12 months thanks in particular to their Rent Collection service, which is being adopted by a growing number of social landlords including people like Home Group and Metropolitan. The service is designed to make rent collection easier by removing the time and labour of outbound calling and to ensure that whenever a member of your income team picks up the phone, there is a tenant connected and waiting to resolve their arrears issues.

We are already helping over a dozen organisations to collect more cash more quickly, thus freeing up advisor time to deal with the more complex requirements of processing UC payments and any arrears escalations. The current economic climate means that evidence based business improvement and measurable operational efficiencies are central to survival.
