Scan-Optics and PHA-Web collaborate to digitize housing authority database management processes
Scan-Optics, a global provider of intelligent data management and digital transformation, is partnering with Management Computer Services, Inc (MCS), the developer of PHA-Web, to provide housing authority customers with solutions to seamlessly convert physical records and store digital files in a cloud-based operating system—improving record retention, tenant communication, and productivity.
“Government agencies on federal, state, and local levels are implementing digitization and automation solutions to increase speed and improve efficiencies, allowing them to better serve their communities,” said Jeff Mitchell, CEO of Scan-Optics. “After gaining traction in the housing authority vertical and working with PHA-Web on the modernization of Waterbury Housing Authority, we looked to expand our capabilities in this sector. Our partnership will allow our customers to quickly reach their digitization goals and securely access documents from anywhere.”
According to the vendors, the partnership between Scan-Optics and PHA-Web is significant as it offers numerous benefits such as enhanced data security, freed-up office space, and increased productivity for housing authorities and their constituents.
Connected workflows allow customers to experience newfound speed and efficiency when conducting business. This makes searching for information incredibly easy and ensures everyone has access to all important documentation from anywhere, according to the companies.
Scan-Optics’ easy.forward platform, an AI and Machine Learning-data solution, converts paper, microfilm, and microfiche records into a searchable digital format.
Files like Section 8, credit and leasing applications, HUD files, employment verification, business receipts, and large format are then accurately uploaded, organized, and classified into PHA-Web’s web-based management solution.
“Housing Authorities that have implemented digitization and web-based storage solutions are better equipped to serve their communities and meet the ever-changing demands for residents seeking affordable housing,” said Scott Gleason, President of PHA-Web. “We look forward to our partnership with Scan-Optics and helping these customers meet those demands more efficiently.”
