Gold Service Scheme

This module is designed to allow organisations to recognise and reward good tenant conduct and behaviour.

What is a 'Gold Service' Scheme?

It is widely recognised that Housing Organisations spend a disproportionate amount of its time dealing with negative issues (e.g. rent arrears, vandalism). Statistics are often cited to illustrate this fact: 20% of tenants consume 80% of staff time.

In order to address this imbalance, a growing number of housing organisations have introduced a scheme that allows them to recognise and reward good tenant conduct and behaviour.

Such schemes have been named "Gold Service".

SDM worked with a number of customers to establish requirements and to produce the SDM Gold Service Scheme module which goes some way towards automating the management of the Scheme and the processes involved.
