A manager from AmicusHorizon Group, said Of Daily Bidding:
‘‘A great improvement. A truly efficient and effective way to work. We’ve got more flexibility, the teams are able to manage their workload giving them time to deal with customers in a positive and proactive way’’
Daily Bidding was introduced to the entire Kent Homechoice partnership on the 16th September 2014, and since going live four months ago, it has proved to be a huge success.
Most choice based lettings systems run on a two week cycle. However, Kent Homechoice believed daily bidding on properties would bring many benefits to both scheme partners and customers.
The introduction of Daily bidding means that councils can now publish adverts without having to first go through LHS. They no longer have to wait for the two week cycle to be completed before adding more adverts to be advertised and they can instead do this instantly via the click of a button.
Daily bidding makes the process for candidates much easier too and no longer requires them to wait for the two week cycle before bidding on another property; if one of their original bids has ended, they can bid on another straight away.
