Emphasys Software Introduces Elite Insight Analytics

ORLANDO, FL, November 13, 2023 — Emphasys Software (Emphasys), a trusted provider of public housing agency solutions for over 45 years, today announced the release of their new product, Elite Insight Analytics, developed in collaboration with Christin & Associates LLC. This business intelligence tool has been tailored to meet the specific needs of public housing authorities (PHAs) seeking more data-driven, actionable information.

Public housing authorities have historically struggled with making informed decisions, largely due to the lack of actionable, easily accessible information. With the introduction of Elite Insight Analytics, Emphasys addresses this longstanding challenge head-on. The platform’s dashboards provide user-friendly, real-time insights into crucial performance metrics, thus empowering PHAs to make swifter, more precise decisions.

“Accessible, actionable information is a game-changer for PHAs. Our partnership with Christin & Associates LLC allowed us to design and deliver an analytics tool that’s tailored specifically for the unique needs of the public housing sector,” stated Lisa Dove, Director of Product at Emphasys.

One of the notable features of Elite Insight Analytics is its data visualization capabilities. The platform efficiently breaks down complex data sets, making it a breeze for users to easily extract valuable insights and consequently optimize resource allocation, improve resident outcomes, and enhance overall operational efficiency.
