Mobysoft provides time-and-cost saving solutions, which create a tangible return on investment and efficiencies for the social housing sector.
Our Early Days
We were founded in 2003 by our current CEO, Derek Steele. We started out providing SMS solutions to various verticals, but from 2006 we began working exclusively in social housing. Our SMS solution was helping landlords create efficiencies and improve income collection and continues to do so.
In 2011 one of our MobileLogic customers approached us to help them develop a software application that would help take a more commercial approach to their income collection. They explained that our texting tool helped and seemed to target the right tenants, but could we create an accurate caseload for officers?
Being a technology company, we jumped at this challenge. Working in the sector we knew landlords were using their Housing Management Systems, which are typically based on SQL logic, to produce an officer’s caseload.
Algorithms, Predictive Technology & the Cloud
We took a different approach; we looked to use algorithms and predictive technology in the Cloud, as we had looked at other verticals and how they were approaching similar issues. For example, banks use a series of algorithms to bring irregular payments to the attention of their fraud team. They then call their customers and query the transactions before they approve or decline them. And from this, RentSense was conceived.
Proven Industry Solution
Fast forward to today and RentSense is the social housing sector’s go to solution for creating tangible efficiencies, protecting revenue streams, increasing collection rates and reducing arrears. It is also helping many to mitigate welfare reform and Universal Credit.
Award Winning Company
Such has been the success of RentSense in helping our customers demonstrate and evidence their return on investment, Mobysoft was rewarded with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation in 2016 and also won the Best IT System at the 2016 Housing Excellence Awards. We have also been ranked in the top 20 of GP Bullhound’s “Fastest Growing Technology Company in the North” for two successive years.
