Managing a housing facility is no easy task and finding the right tenants can be cumbersome. Applications, personal information, and endless amounts of paperwork make for a hectic process—one that can be better managed by the proper scanning solution.
Need an example of how this is possible? Let’s take a look at how Albyn Housing Society used a Kodak departmental scanning solution to handle their document needs.
Located in the Scottish Highlands, managing more than 2,000 rental properties in an area home to more than 218,000 people, Albyn needed a reliable and versatile scanning system to effectively and accurately process all its paperwork.
“We needed a top-quality scanner to deal with the volume of paper as our older scanners kept jamming. The Kodak scanner was ordered, supplied and has worked with no complications” said Robin Narim, Albyn Housing Association’s Finance and IT Director. “We’ve reduced the time it takes to allocate a property when it becomes vacant by 25%.”
Albyn Housing Society is spending ample amounts of money to build and maintain new facilities—there’s no reason for them to have to spend more money or their valuable time scanning documents. The Kodak scanner makes the process easy, affordable, and efficient.
To make things easier, all housing operations in the Scottish Highlands collaborated and decided on one comprehensive housing application—a streamlined and efficient process the Kodak scanner was able to benefit in many ways. There’s one form, one application, one waiting list, and several different housing facilities to choose from. It’s not only perfect for clients to save time on applications, but it helps the organizations stay organized. The time it takes to allocate a property once it’s vacant has reduced tremendously, and the placement process has become much more efficient.
