Are you thinking about cloud-based hosting for your public housing authority (PHA)? More than 900 PHA end users of our Elite PHA enterprise software currently enjoy the cost benefit of Emphasys’ high performance and secure hosting services to manage their portfolio of affordable housing.

Dozens of Emphasys PHA clients have benefited from our hosting solution, ranging in size from 50 subsidized units to well over 30,000 subsidized units with hundreds of concurrent users. Clients have realized improved performance and reliability, a reduction in system-administration costs and the peace of mind of disaster recovery protection. Best of all, the computer workstations that your employees already use, along with an Internet connection, are the only things your PHA needs.

At Emphasys, we know that it takes more than great technology to deliver a comprehensive hosted solution. It’s the people and processes involved that make a solution complete.

With our hosted solution, Emphasys provides your PHA with secure access to your Elite PHA housing software, from any location at any time, via state-of-the art hardware located off-site from your PHA in a secure and certified data center.
