Date: 23rd August 2019

We are delighted to announce that following HomeMaster’s live running at both Cathcart & District Housing Association and Thorngate Living an additional three Housing Associations have signed contracts for the implementation of HomeMaster.




Molendinar Park Housing Association who are a community-controlled housing provider managing over 830 properties are one of the associations to have recently committed to a five-year contract. The implementation has commenced replacing their existing multi solution product with the fully embedded Web Based HomeMaster Housing & Finance solution.

Julie Smillie, Director of Molendinar Park Housing Association commented

‘Molendinar Park Housing Association are delighted to have entered into a contract with Designer Software for delivery of the HomeMaster system. Excellent service delivery and value for money are vital to the Association, and by switching to HomeMaster we are confident that we will improve on both. We are excited to implement and operate the new system and are very much looking forward to working with the team at Designer Software.’

In addition to the core Housing Management and Finance functions MPHA will also utilise the Asbestos, Property Compliance and Case Management modules available in HomeMaster. It is expected that the system will be in a live running environment during November 2019, 3 months from contract signature.

Ian Thompson, CEO of Designer Software, added that

‘We are delighted to welcome 3 new customers to our growing portfolio. It is our view that too many solutions available to Housing Providers are based on ageing technologies trying to knit together a patchwork quilt of different software modules. HomeMaster is an affordable Web Based single integrated solution with mobile operation at its core for all the requirements of Housing Organisations in respect of Housing and Financial Management. Our business model of providing financial clarity and certainty through a fixed annual subscription which covers all aspects from hosting the system through to implementation, training and support is another innovation from Designer Software which is extremely well received by Housing Providers.’
