VOIS | HOUSING
Transparent, paperless and fast housing application system
Social housing construction is an acute topic worldwide. More and more people can hardly afford affordable housing at exploding prices. As in many other cases, this situation first affects people with little or no income. Especially in emerging and developing countries this situation is particularly dramatic, often even life-threatening.
In South Africa, the government tries to control social housing through the Department of Human Settlements and to improve the general housing situation of the lower income groups. Contrary to popular opinion, a house built with public funds is not free of charge. It can be rented or acquired. This task is delegated to the respective Municipality through the provincial administrations and is administered and processed de-centrally.
In order to process the applications better and more effectively, to ensure a secure, fast and binding communication between administration and applicant, as well as to ensure transparent and legally secure processing, we have developed VOIS | HOUSING as a specialized module for VOIS.
What distinguishes VOIS | HOUSING:
- Modern web-based user interface with legally compliant validation, both during application and processing
- Electronic application with submission of the corresponding documents with an intelligent assistant (Web based mobile App)
- No manual modification of submitted applications without logging (complete transparency)
- Processing notifications, status notifications (mail, SMS, etc.) and communication are possible to be completely electronic
- Extensive evaluation possibilities such as waiting lists, statistics, diagrams, etc
- Support of the clerks in the awarding of contracts according to legal requirements
- Integrated electronic calendar for appointment scheduling to minimize waiting times
- Integration with GIS for visual utilization overview
- Waiting list generation
- Applicant selection for housing projects
- For use with Low Cost and GAP housing
- Integration into required systems (API’s)
- Modular design for use by other VOIS specialized programs
VOIS | HOUSING is a module of VOIS | BASE. VOIS | BASE will be utilized for all back-office administrative tasks, statistics and reporting.
