There are many ways to create a seamless connection between your systems. But, when integrating your finance system with your HMS (Housing Management system), or vice versa, that is something you need to get right. There are some considerations to take into account when undertaking a project like this, so it’s important to have a reliable software partner to provide you with support along the way.

Here are some of our key considerations to think about before starting the integration project:

  • Are you looking to do a one-way or two-way integration?
  •  What is the volume of data you want to pass between the systems?
  • What technical skills do you have in-house and do you have the right resources to build and maintain the integration?
  • Is the data in both systems cleansed and ready to use in the integration?

If you don’t have an answer for those, don’t panic, there are ways to manage them. This can seem like a daunting part of your implementation, but your software provider should have extensive knowledge on the subject and can advise on the best process to support your housing association.

Implementation method examples

A lot of our customers are implementing both new systems around the same time. There is technically no right answer on how to do this as every business is
different, however to give some guidance, here are 3 real-life examples of the approaches our Housing Associations  customers have taken in the past and how it can affect the integration side of the project:
