Home / Products / Housing

adam Housing, our digital end-to-end solution, allows the procurement and management of all housing, across both the Private Rented Sector and Temporary Accommodation market. adam ensures that every household can be matched with the most appropriate housing for their needs, whilst offering confidence to Local Authorities in core areas such as property compliance. The solution and all associated services help to reduce the reliance on costly Temporary Accommodation by building a large, varied portfolio of properties to meet the Local Authorities’ needs.

The Challenge

The demand for housing outweighs suitable supply, particularly in crowded towns and cities. It can be a struggle getting individuals into properties that are safe and fit for purpose. As a result, there’s a growing reliance on readily available, costly nightly paid accommodation, with providers holding the balance of power because options are limited and booking processes are inefficient.

The Solution

adam‘s bespoke housing management solution has been built in close partnership with Local Authorities and the people dealing with accommodation issues on a day-to-day basis to tackle this directly. We streamline the commissioning process so you can source the most appropriate dwellings for your households. Local Authorities are using our solution because they know that they can source accommodation for people in the most effective and compliant manner. Since 2015, we have supported five Local Authorities to commission housing more effectively, having managed over £400 million worth of spend.
