SitexOrbis to put on a royal show at CIH Manchester
Published by Debansu Das for Sitex Orbis Ltd in Housing
In celebration of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, vacant property protection specialist SitexOrbis is to host a few royal guests - The Queen, William and Kate (or rather, their very convincing lookalikes) – at the Housing 2012 conference and exhibition in Manchester from 12 to 14 June 2012.
The royals will be housed at SitexOrbis’ stand D34 which is to be transformed into a royal castle which is a symbolic gesture of SitexOrbis’ service offerings including protection, reliability, continuity and commitment to delivery. Visitors to the stand can even have their photo taken with their favourite royal lookalikes.
Recognising the notion that “your home is your castle”, SitexOrbis has been providing innovative void security solutions and integrated property services to clients in the social and private housing sectors for over 25 years.
The company has transformed social landlords’ approach to void management, ensuring that voids are turned around quicker than ever before. This means that waiting lists can be reduced and people re-homed faster and in a better standard of housing.
Over the past two years the company’s innovative approach and products, combined with strong customer service has been recognised with 13 awards, including the Most Innovative New Product of the Year 2012 from Housing Innovation Awards.
The castle shaped stand in the main exhibition hall will promote iSecurity, the latest in security innovation, which combines iTRAP, a portable, intelligent alarm with iDOOR, an innovative keyless, remotely programmable access management system. This exclusive security system gives the social housing landlord complete peace of mind that their properties are secured and monitored 24/7 by a BS5979 Cat II Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC). It was launched in response to the growing sophistication of today’s thieves.
Theft attempts have fallen
Delegates can also learn about SitexOrbis’ Videofied solution, which recently saved Liverpool social housing provider, One Vision Housing, an estimated £1 million by preventing the theft of boilers from its empty properties. Theft attempts have fallen from at least two per week to zero, equating to about £1 million over four years following the arrest of several intruders who broke into an empty property containing a SitexOrbis Videofied portable intruder alarm with a visual verification camera.
SitexOrbis’ eMAKS access system solution, an efficiency boosting key that opens up to 6,000 locks and has won multiple awards, will also be showcased. Central to eMAKS (Electronically Managed Access Key Systems) is an electronic key that can be continually reprogrammed remotely to control access to a multitude of properties.. Access reports are provided for health and safety and invoicing, and the travel and administration associated with key collections are eliminated.
SitexOrbis’ innovative solutions are backed by Aura, a real-time web-based workflow management and reporting system enabling customers to instruct, control and track progress of all jobs undertaken by their contractors. The technology delivers vast data across the breadth of SitexOrbis’ product offering with comprehensive search technologies, mapping functions, trend analysis and report printing capabilities. Clients simply log on and access information at the click of a mouse. It also provides a full audit trail.
SitexOrbis will enjoy an involved role at this year’s conference both hosting an evening of dinner, drinks and comedy as part of the first evening’s entertainment and sponsoring the CIH Engage and Connect event, attended by over 200 senior housing professionals including the Housing Minister on the 13th June.
Visit stand D34 at the CIH Housing 2012 exhibition in Manchester from 12-14 June 2012 to see SitexOrbis’ innovative products and solutions.
