Mr. Shaler Roberts, Executive Director
Florence (AL) Housing Authority
The training provided by Judy was very well received
by my staff. It enhanced our ability to use the
software. I would like to set up an annual training
based on our conversion date. The first training would
be next March. This will help with our conversion to
Project Based Accounting/Management and what we are and
will be facing in the voucher program.
Thanks, Shaler Roberts

"We've been with HAB since they introduced their first DOS‑based software program, and transitioned to the Window's based program in 1998. I've been especially impressed with HAB's commitment to R&D, to staying current with their software's capabilities."
"I'd recommend HAB to any other housing authority because they have a stable product that's been a very a useful tool. It runs like clockwork."
"The Sequential Query Language (SQL) language used in
HAB's software allows us to customize the program if
needed. We go into Report Writer, put in our parameters,
and it spits out exactly what we need."
Mr. Bob Brennecke, Information Technology
Clearwater (FL) Housing Authority
"We like the HAB software. It's easy to use, with its drop down menus and windows. It progresses logically, and is user friendly."
"HAB's tech support is great. When we call with a problem, they call us back that day or within 24 hours."
"HAB paid very much attention in converting from the old MTCS to the new PIC 50058 electronic form. It was critical to mirror HUD's form in order to upload to the public information system. The HAB software talks to PIC software; if we've had an error, it's been a user error or a problem with the PIC program."
Ms. Jane Alberts, Executive Director
La Crosse (WI) Housing Authority
"We've been a HAB client right from the beginning. We've been very satisfied with HAB's service. Their staff has been great. They stay up‑to‑date with all the new HUD and PIC information. We're happy with the product and the service."
"The Tech Support has been great."
"HAB really knows about accounting practices in the housing industry. Their knowledge level is high and their staff is more experienced because there isn't a lot of staff turnover. Their staff stays with them because HAB is a good company."
Mr. Kevin Loso, Executive Director
Rutland(VT) Housing Authority
"I can tell you without reservaton that (HAB trainers) provided an outstanding series of trainings tailored to our unique needs and expectations."
"Their extraordinary knowledge base, understanding of public housing, teaching expertise and good humor made for an outstanding experience for my staff."
"HAB can be proud of the manner in which these professionals represent your organization in the field"
Mr. Skip Szymanski, Chief Operating Officer
Housing Authority City of Santa Barbara (CA)
As Rob Fredericks (Director of Administrative Services) said referring to HAB, "Did we join up with a 21st Century company or what?!" We had a web broadcast meeting with HAB this morning at 7:00 AM. By 1:00 PM we had the meeting available on line for all to see!
Perhaps the best part of all of this is that the software and reports offered on the online training were instigated in part by inquiries by our HA. HAB has been very responsive and seems to provide what we need.
I have high hopes that HAB will recognize our HA as a very progressive organization. It is our desire to become involved enough with HAB that we may provide feedback and testing to help further develop your software in a manner that will ultimately make our Housing Authority as efficient and HUD compliant as possible. I look forward to this process, which leads me to say, HAB is currently the best overall housing authority software I have reviewed. With the responsiveness of HAB's development team, I see the software constantly getting even better.
