Do your current systems make it difficult to understand the condition of your housing assets?
And do you need a clearer understanding of future maintenance requirements for your investment and funding decisions?
Managing community housing portfolios is challenging. Being overloaded with different data telling different stories can be time-consuming to manage and interpret. Plus there is the added pressure of compliance and auditing requirements.
On top of that, you need to maintain the properties to your specific asset standards, keeping them safe and functional with the appropriate appearance. You also need to consider how the property will deteriorate well into the future and know what’s required to maintain the capital value.

SPM Assets recognises the community housing sector has a range of unique requirements and has developed management software with the specific functionality to expertly assess, analyse and plan for the management of your property assets.

How does SPM Assets social housing management software work?
Our social housing software for asset management allows you to quickly establish an accurate description of your assets; develop short, medium, and long term plans; and to manage assets on a daily basis. Included in the solution is a range of easy-to-use asset planning tools that enable you to:
- Accurately record the properties you are managing, right down to a component level such as doors, windows, paint and carpet.
- Full assessments can be done in 30 minutes: our inspectors assess 10 dwellings a day. The software is easy to use, so you can focus on the condition assessment rather than on how to use the software.
- Planning the survey is easy: you can assign properties to inspectors, and manage their performance in real time.
- You will have access to our templates and libraries – we’ve already done the thinking for you.
- Assess the condition of housing components to your own defined standards and provide the evidence to establish longer-term budgets and works programmes.
- Produce a schedule of shorter-term work items based on a library of predefined defects.
- Assess the property’s amenity and compliance, to identify areas that need to improve safety, security, energy efficiency, and function.
- Use all of this information to plan your works programme – whether you wish to take a 5-year view or a 50-year horizon.
- Fulfil all your compliance and regulatory obligations easily, and create a cohesive and science-based housing asset management strategy.
