We chose WeaverPRM for its ability to inventory our properties and track workflow, projects, grants, and construction.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 2, 2010
The Jones Payne Group announced that the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative (DSNI) is implementing WeaverPRM™ to manage its housing units. WeaverPRM, offering in-depth, detailed tracking and management capabilities, integrates workflow tracking, dwelling, and homeowner information into a web-based software system designed to help organize and manage parcel and property-based activities.
Property Inventory and Workflow Tracking
DSNI has created an inventory all 225 units of its land trust named Dudley Neighbors Inc (DNI) on WeaverPRM and tracks leaseholder issues in real time via laptop, PDA, and Smartphone. The nonprofit also scans and stores copies of deeds, product warranty information, leaseholder agreements, and other documents associated with each unit for easy access and retrieval.
"We chose WeaverPRM for its ability to inventory our properties and track workflow, projects, grants, and construction," said Jason Webb, director of DNI at DSNI. "In addition, the system has greatly enhanced our ability to track communication with homeowners and create reports for our different constituents, including our board of directors, foundations, and homeowners."
"WeaverPRM grew out of our extensive experience in working with local communities during our noise mitigation work," said Michael K. Payne, managing principal of The Jones Payne Group. "Community Land Trusts have many of the same issues focused, of course, on the land and buildings but, perhaps more importantly, on the people who live on the properties."
