Visitor to the Housing Finance Conference & Exhibition 2019 will be able to see first-hand how a new cloud-hosted stock assessment tool from PIMSS Data Systems (PIMSS) will allow them to determine the viability of their property portfolios.
PIMSS will be in attendance on Stand 309 at the Conference & Exhibition, 20-21 March 2019 at the ACC Liverpool to showcase Viability - the company’s new evidence-based stock assessment tool. Viability will be of interest to housing professionals as it allows them to evaluate stock against NPV, yield, return on investment and strategic sustainability criteria.
The tool is flexible enough to allow for financial sensitivity and stress testing and the effects of changes can be seen from whole stock, to locality, estate, postcode area, block or individual dwelling.
The company’s core messages at the conference will not only focus on how careful management of housing and associated assets will contribute to strong financial results, but how Viability can help alert and proactively prevent poor asset sustainability that will ultimately result in poor commercial performance.
Configuration of Viability can accommodate relevant financial criteria, and sustainability standards can be assessed in conjunction within the context of an organisation’s values and objectives.
Along with comprehensive reporting and mapping the tool contains an options appraisals model to support investment, divestment or initiative decisions.
Viability has the ability to fully interface with numerous systems and offers organisations an unrivalled, real-time view of housing assets to support enhanced evidence-based decision making.
To support organisations in achieving their aims, PIMSS is also offering asset management consultancy services, which for those thinking about a Stock Assessment tool can be invaluable. PIMSS‘ consultants can support organisations in a range of services from data analysis and benchmarking to full stock grading and rationalisation.
As a cloud hosted solution, Viability offers the added advantage of sharing read only information across the organisation, so all relevant people can be informed. Viability is highly secure, has a flexible licence and generally no additional IT resources are required, thus keeping investment to a minimum. A modern user interface means that operators will find it intuitive and easy to use.
Ruth Dent, Asset Management Consultant at PIMSS, comments: “No tool can give you all the answers. However, Viability is designed to help ensure organisations direct resources to the right assets and to understand how numerous factors may impact asset performance. We want to support organisations to have insight into all of this and make informed decisions based on robust information.”
