Innovating housing needs services

Enhance the customer experience, through digital technology and automation, creating efficient multi-channel services.

Using cloud optimised software, our Housing Needs and Choice application supports you to automate, manage and share information effectively, reflecting the requirements of your individual scheme. It assists customers, housing officers and landlord partners to better manage day-to-day tasks. From your housing register, choice-based lettings, housing advice and homelessness prevention and support. 

With a focus on the user experience, it gives your employees the freedom to work at any location and allows customers to access services anytime, on any device.

Combined with Civica’s Cx Housing digital platform, it allows your customers to manage all aspects of the housing needs service, from initial contact through to tenancy management.

City of Bradford Council is now live with our cloud- optimised Abritas software which allows tenants to register for social housing using an online form - for the first time! In order to achieve faster results for the Council, we implemented Homeless and Supporting People modules first, then Housing Register and Choice based lettings, which went live on 2nd March 2020. The Bradford team said:

Well done everybody, amazing feeling when crossing that line. 
Dimitris Tolios | City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council
We have been using the Abritas system since 2010 and have found it to be the most efficient and user-friendly system that we have ever worked with. I would recommend Abritas to any housing service that is looking for a reliable and practical IT system. Our experience as customers has been very positive and the system continues to provide an ideal solution to our business needs.
