At Home Connections, we’ve worked closely with local authorities, housing associations and PRS landlords, of all shapes and sizes over the last 20 years. We have enjoyed providing game-changing housing solutions that help our community of social landlords to reach their digital ambitions. From Wheatley Group to Islington Council and Devon Home Choice, getting digital ‘right’ has reaped countless benefits for these organisations. And with the ongoing pandemic causing demand for social housing to soar, whilst simultaneously posing significant restrictions, embracing technology has never been more crucial.

Our Choice-based Lettings (CBL) system is refreshingly user-friendly and fully flexible enabling housing providers of all shapes and sizes to smartly allocate properties. Features include multi-tenure advertising with all letting types in one system, in-depth reporting, and full visibility of your entire letting process, along with full audit options.
Homelessness Reduction Act software, hope
hope offers a thorough assessment of duties owed, a fully configurable case management system, recording tools and advice on accommodation options. The system is designed to ease the everyday administration tasks of housing officers. Hope aids from the start of the assessment stage, up until secure accommodation has been established for the homeless and homeless prevention cases.
Uniquely, Home Connections’ national mobility scheme, Homefinder UK, can also be supplied as part of the system. This enables the integration of direct housing options. It also alleviates the pressure from casework for applicants wanting or willing to move out of the borough.
Our Virtual Tours offer a powerful integration that allows housing officers to upload videos of the properties into the system's back office so the videos are displayed side-by-side property adverts info. It allows property viewings to go beyond geographical limits and distances to be accessed from any place, anytime! It is also proven to reduce the risk of refusals and help customers find their ideal home easier.
Did you know that currently, there isn't a local authority or housing association in the UK that would offer interaction between social housing applicants and allocations systems via a voice interface? Inevitably, that's where the future of Choice Based Lettings is heading. Will you be the first to explore how Voice Assist, our CBL integration with voice assistants, can help customers carry out their property search via speech? 'Alexa' would find properties available that match the applicant's criteria, read out the description available and place a bid if the home seeker simply says so. Request a demo today!
