The number of households in temporary accommodation has been increasing steadily since 2010. On 31st March 2020, the total number of households in temporary accommodation was 93,000, up 9.4% from 85,040 a year earlier. Additionally, 25,540 (27.5%) of households in temporary accommodation were in accommodation in a different local authority district*
Private sector accommodation leased by Local Authorities are one of the most common types of temporary accommodation. We have developed adam Housing, our new solution that facilitates the procurement and ongoing management of rooms and properties to meet the rising demand.
adam Housing provides live property availability at the touch of a button, allowing Housing teams to act fast when placing citizens in Temporary Accommodation, saving crucial time. Dive deeper into each listing, where further information is stored, such as price, local amenities, and property safety certificates. This allows informed decision making prior to the property reservation.
The platform is hosted in the cloud, so it is not dependent on a Local Authorities existing IT infrastructure and is secure, scalable, and resilient.
With adam Housing you can easily view supply base and property compliance in a single location. Each listing follows a standardised workflow for information and documentation upload, ensuring that every property available for your use meets all necessary compliance criteria.
Automatic compliance alerts ensure that Housing teams and suppliers are always alerted of any potential risks and issues. Whether it be a notification of an imminent expiry of a gas Safety certificate or an ongoing booking complaint, the solution provides the intelligence to allow Housing teams to act fast and compliantly.
adam can then streamline the process further, driving 100% accuracy in financial processes with automatic e-invoicing and subsequent payments to the supply chain.
Local authorities use our solution because they know that they can source accommodation for people in an effective and compliant manner while keeping their costs under control.
