Housing corporation goes digital to curb corruption

26 November 2013, 12:35

Nairobi - The National Housing Corporation (NHC) announced a partnership with technology firms to digitalise its operations and subsequently curb corruption in the implementation of programmes and enhance service delivery.

The exercise, which officials said was worth KES 130 million is poised to provide prospective house buyers with access to information regarding the properties they intended to purchase and further an online payment system.

Seven Seas Technology will carry out the new Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP) which German multinational software corporation, SAP, will implement and develop.
The new system is set to be operational in the next eight months.

NHC Managing Director, Wachira Njuguna, stated that the software would ensure that most of the corporation’s departments were automated, which would in turn lower costs and further minimize wastage.
“The departments that will be automated include human resources payroll system, document management and workflow systems, procurement and logistics information systems, customer relations and business intelligence systems,” he said.

Njuguna exuded confidence that the upgrade would enable NHC offer quality services to their clients through provision of real time information, automation of rent payment and improved management systems.

Njuguna noted that the new system would help curb rampant corruption by increasing accountability and transparency.

NHC is a statutory body established by an Act of Parliament in 1967. Its primary mandate is to play a principal role in the implementation of the government’s housing policies and programmes.
