Housing & Inspection Management – Software Updates!

Michelle Poirier Housing Inventory Management System

Providing your staff with a set of powerful tools to tackle Capacity Development is the key to a higher quality of life for your members. That’s why Abenaki Associates, the leader in First Nations Capacity Development since 1984, has created the First Nations Management Suite of software products.  I am writing today to let you know of some exciting changes coming to our CMHC Award-winning Housing Inspectors Database System (HIMS).

(HIMS) is now even easier-to-use and can help you track full physical inspection details and projected repair costs on your housing assets.  With the click of a mouse you can create detailed reports on everything from critical health and fire hazards, overcrowding, occupant and repair history to drinking water status and more!  You can also generate condition reports that are based on the latest building codes so you can better ensure the health and safety of your community members.

This powerful tool can gather hard information and facts to justify requests for funds so you can improve and maintain existing and new housing assets. You can also compile information on certain types of repairs that require replacements such as doors and windows to negotiate volume pricing from suppliers.

Our Housing and Inspection Management Module has recently had some changes incorporated into the latest release. One of the biggest additions is the ability to add documents. This enables you to attach inspection reports, warranty and other documents directly to the Housing unit record.  We are now working on the ability to add Work Orders. This feature will be available soon.  Next year will see other exciting changes to the Housing Program including support for Windows 10 and the ability to integrate with Google Maps !
