Designer Software is delighted to announce that Cathcart & District Housing Association are now live with Designer Software’s Web Based HomeMaster Housing Solution.
Cathcart are based in Glasgow and manage, including factored properties in excess of 1200 units.
Christine Leitch CEO said that "As an organisation we were determined to benefit from the facilities that modern technology affords and implement a system for the digital age. Designer Software’s revolutionary Web Based HomeMaster system met this objective. The process of changing from our old windows-based server system has been extremely smooth and the commitment from the project team at Designer Software has been exemplary. The staff find the system intuitive and the ability to have access to the system on any device irrespective of location will certainly improve productivity. A significant aspect of the system is that HomeMaster will produce information from the system which relates directly to the format required for our ARC submissions."
Of particular benefit to Cathcart have been the efficiencies gained by their main contractor’s adoption of HomeMaster and the implementation of the innovative functionality which drives the recharging of costs to Owner Occupiers and real time recording of information relating to repairs and maintenance projects.
Ian Thompson CEO from Designer software said that "working with Cathcart who are clearly a forward-thinking organisation has been highly rewarding. We commenced training in February and Cathcart were live in less than 8 weeks. This achievement is a testament to the close working relationship between our respective organisations which I have no doubt will deepen in the future."
