What people say
It follows, very thoroughly, the legal process/journey of the HRA and therefore there is little risk of the officers missing a step or decision
It produces the PHP as a live document throughout the life of the case
When you log in the dashboard is very clear on how many cases you have at what stage and the actions that need requiring
I like the idea that it will be accessible to the customer via the customer portal and agencies will have a tool to be compliant with the duty to refer
The amount of information that the officers have learned about the HRA just by using it
We pay one fee – not what we’re used to – there are no hidden costs
Everything is in one place – a one stop shop!
