Public inter-municipal housing fund Maribor
In 2021, the Public inter-municipal housing fund Maribor (JMSS) started implementing and using an advanced digital solution for managing the fund. The solution developed by company Imagine is aimed at simplifying real estate management and most of all, automating and simplifying the management of non-profit leases.
Housing funds in Slovenia represent one of the few systemic solutions in the region for promoting the rental market and above all providing rental apartments for socially endangered families. Due to funding restrictions, the funds’ growth significantly lagged behind the needs of the market, but in recent years, new funding opportunities have opened up for them, so they started investing intensively in the construction of new apartments throughout Slovenia, mostly in the cities of Ljubljana, Koper, and Maribor. The Housing Fund of Slovenia will, among other things, complete a large neighborhood with approximately 400 rental apartments in the western part of Pod Pekrska gorca in 2022, and the construction of a similarly large neighborhood in the eastern part of Novo Pobrežje with 430 apartments is also planned.
Company Imagine, which otherwise provides various solutions for real estate management, in cooperation with JMSS Maribor and other funds, created a special solution for managing profit and non-profit leases. The solution called iSklad will help funds simplify, speed up and automate the process of managing tenants and lease agreements. Connections with external sources are also being established, with the help of which the funds will be able to automatically collect data on the assets of candidates for non-profit rents, and the system will be able to analyze the eligibility and order of candidates by itself. This will significantly increase transparency, reduce time-consuming manual work with data, and save a lot of time for employees, so they can devote themselves to more meaningful work and improving customer service.
