Job Scheduling Systems for Social Housing Repairs
to ensure the most effective use of resources
We help Social Housing organisations to significantly reduce costs by optimising resources and increasing productivity. We do this through our Job Scheduling Systems for Social Housing Repairs enabling responsive repairs, increasing jobs-per-day, first visit completions and access gained through appointed work.
By blending responsive repair work with planned maintenance and voids, we are able to ensure the most effective use of resources. This ensures obligations are met and it reduces the time taken to re-let properties.

How Dynamic Resource Scheduling & Mobile Working Can Help You Keep Your Promises To Be Cost Effective
It is a fundamental objective of any housing organisation to deliver a service that is considered ‘value for money’. Simply cutting costs is never the answer, as indiscriminate cost reductions so often result in reducing the level or quality of service delivered to customers.
Value for money is about delivering the best possible service in the most efficient manner. It is about identifying non-productive areas of your operation such as no-access visits, and addressing these. It is about identifying inefficiencies in processes like data re-entry and eliminating these, and it is about reducing everyday overheads such as travel costs.
Kirona are leaders in enabling the housing sector to deliver a highly responsive and effective service to tenants while ensuring they work in a highly efficient manner. We do this through our Job Scheduling Systems for Social Housing Repairs – Dynamic Resource Scheduling (DRS) and Job Manager (JM) – that manage the complete work cycle from appointment to job completion.
This eBook outlines six ways in which these solutions can help housing organisations to address gaps in productivity and efficiency and help them to reduce costs and deliver the ultimate goal of a ‘value for money’ service.
