The borough of Basingstoke and Deane covers around 244 square miles with a population of over 170,000. The council has significant commercial property holdings with the investment portfolio and operational assets made up of 760 properties and a combined capital value of approximately £330 million. There is also a rental and service charge income of around £17 million a year. This represents one of the largest local authority income producing investment property portfolios in the United Kingdom.
The council commenced a tender process for a single comprehensive property management information system, with a view to having a clear and accurate view of their property related data and to assist with the delivery of the council’s investment strategy. Following a thorough evaluation of the market, The Technology Forge’s tf cloud system was selected to meet its operational needs.
Over the coming weeks we will be implementing the tf cloud system at the council with modules including Property, Plant, Utility, Capital Accounting, Condition Survey, Asbestos Survey, Questionnaire, Case Management, Resource Booking, Estates inc Valuations, Acquisitions, Disposal & Billing, Risk Assessment, Inspections, Help Desk inc Instructions & Invoicing, Contractor Portal, Self-Serve Portal and integration with other key business systems.
Mark Wardman, Managing Director of The Technology Forge comments:
“I am pleased to welcome Basingstoke and Deane Council as our latest tf cloud client. We are looking forward to helping the Council manage its sizeable and valuable estate by facilitating improved processes through our tf cloud system”.
