Compose


There are clear benefits of putting housing advice in writing; either as a letter, advice sheet or as part of a Personal Housing Plan.

AdviceAid Compose is an intuitive and easy-to-use module for advisers to search, collate and share written advice. Powered by up-to-date and quality advice written by legal experts; housing teams can adapt the advice for local contexts.

A powerful search tool helps you find the right advice which you simply drag and drop onto an blank advice page. Alternatively, use or adapt one of the pre-made templates enabling you to save time and offer the very best in structured and consistent advice for your customers.

Share your written advice easily as a PDF, email or by copying in to your case management system.

Knowledge


Legislation, guidance and best-practice in housing advice is constantly updating. Advisors are already working with so much information – keeping that knowledge up-to-date is a challenge.
 
With increasing demand and reducing resources, councils are having to put a greater emphasis on using a range of advice channels. These include partner agencies; corporate customer services teams; and digital tools. With this diversity comes an increased risk of inconsistency and a reduction in quality. 
 
AdviceAid Knowledge is about empowering the workforce to provide guided advice, that is always tailored to the customers needs.
 
As with all the AdviceAid modules, Knowledge is fully customisable for your local context and can be adapted to suit your business needs.
