Many councils and housing associations need to bring & keep their housing stock up to the Government Decent Homes Standard. Councils, registered social landlords and housing associations with a lot of housing stock are unlikely to achieve the task of decent homes compliance by using paper based data collection techniques - unless they use excessive numbers of surveyors!
Decent Homes Surveyor will save you a huge amount of money by avoiding the re-keying and processing of data back at the office. Once your surveyors collect the on-site data, it is immediately available for management reporting or for importing into other housing management systems.
The successful implementation of the Decent Homes Standard within the housing association sector (RSLs & Local Authorities) requires the application of modern mobile surveying technologies. Paper based data capture is long past its 'sell-by date' and local authorities using such out-dated data collection methods are simply wasting tax payers money.
