Managing the documentation and assessment process for Housing Renewal Grants (HRGs) has always been challenging. The devolved powers for all but Disabled Facilities Grants (DFGs) require decisions on the treatment of new benefits and responses to other changes. Staff need to be confident in applying the rules and in ensuring that information from clients is complete and properly assessed.
Qtech is dedicated to questionnaire technology and means-tests. We have been supplying quality software and training for housing renewal grants since 1992. Our customers say that they chose our products and stick with them because our expertise comes shining through, that we provide tools which are professional, precise and thorough.
Our on-site, modular training courses have met with conspicuous success. Qtech training is flexible and we are adept at taking into account the particular rules and requirements of your Council’s HRG regime. We currently offer a half-day briefing on the implications of Employment & Support Allowance as well as three levels of courses on the Test of Resources.
This year we are introducing new, totally electronic systems for HRGs. They handle the whole application, assessment and certification process from the initial enquiry to the final audit. They’re highly cost-efficient, outstandingly easy to use and they can incorporate every requirement of your authority. The HRG systems are independent of and complementary to departmental databases: on completion all the documentation, including any calculations, is embedded in the relevant management system. The systems are based on our revolutionary DFG software, iQGrants Pro, a unique, ground-breaking e-solution.
Our systems and courses are flexible and responsive so that they meet your requirements cost-effectively. Our knowledge and experience will enable you to make step-changes in the efficiency and effectiveness of the administration of all Housing Renovation Grants.
