BREAKING NEWS: INAC has recently announced that they have earmarked up to $15,000 for software costs associated with the management of housing inventory in First Nations Communities.
Abenaki Associates applauds Indian and Northern Affairs Canada for taking this important step to ensure that First Nations across Canada have safe and healthy housing for their members.
Abenaki Associates has been an advocate for housing on reserves since we began our business in 1984. In fact, our Housing & Inspection Management System (HIMS) was one of the very first applications we developed as part of our First Nations Management Suite of software products.
HIMS went on to win an award from the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation and ever since then we have endeavoured to constantly improve this product based on the feedback we receive from our loyal customers.
In our efforts to make this product available to all First Nations we have always tried to keep our products affordable, while still maintaining the award winning customer service and technical support you’ve come to expect from us over the past 32 years.
What does that mean? First off, when you purchase our Housing & Inspection Management System a member of your staff is eligible to attend a training session – at no additional cost above the price of the software!
Also, those that join our Abenaki Software Assurance Plan receive upgrades for the life of the product, free phone and email support, discounts on additional training, and access to free workshops held across Canada.
