Date: 7th February 2019
Following our announcement in September ’18 of the
formation of Designer Software and the launch of the
HomeMaster product, we are delighted to confirm that a
number of contracts have now been signed for the
implementation of this new revolutionary digital HMS
solution. Our first customer will be live in April ‘19 with
our CRM, Rents, Responsive Repairs and Property Compliance modules.
The launch of HomeMaster at the NHF Smaller Housing Association’s Conference in November was a great success and generated significant interest in our product. The overwhelming feedback from the sector was that the system will simplify existing processes, improve customer service and deliver significant operational efficiencies. The fact that HomeMaster is one application available across any device was extremely well received, as was the business model of one fixed annual fee, covering implementation, upgrades & support.
We are delighted to welcome Chris Prime, who previously worked at Kypera.
In his new role as HomeMaster Product Specialist, he will be working with
customers to maximise the benefits that are to be gained from the
implementation of HomeMaster. Chris has been working within the housing
sector for many years and his knowledge and experience in customer facing
roles will be invaluable.
I am also pleased to announce that Simon Felstead, who previously worked with Chris Prime at Kypera, has also joined the team. Simon was formerly a Test Manager with Hewlett Packard and, as a key member of Kypera’s support desk team, gained an extensive knowledge and in depth understanding of the operational requirements of housing providers. Simon’s role at HomeMaster will involve providing ongoing support to our customers. He will also have Quality Assurance responsibilities, an integral part of our internal processes.
In 2018 the Company made significant strides in the development and launch of the new HomeMaster housing solution. We have established a highly motivated and experienced team who are focused on the successful delivery of this modern solution to the housing sector.
2019 is set to build on the success of 2018 and will be an exciting year with the release of the Finance module and a new service charges solution, HomeCharges.
