Our Story

Tenmast Software is the combination of two great companies serving the public housing industry: Tenmast Software of Lexington, Kentucky, and Millennium Software, Inc., of Ruston, Louisiana. Tenmast began in 1984 when the founder created a software program to automate the tenant application process for a relative who managed a housing authority in Kentucky. That program, the Tenant Master Database, for which the company was named, became the seed for more than 20 separate modules of affordable housing management software.

Millennium Software, Inc., was formed in 1991 by Mark Lewis, now President of Tenmast. Mark was also responding to the needs of a relative who worked in public housing and was looking for a better solution. Over the next eight years, Millennium became the fastest-growing regional software company serving the public housing industry in the south and south central United States.

Both companies operated on the same core principle: build accurate, easy-to-use software systems for housing managers and provide the best software support in the industry. On October 1, 1999, Tenmast Software and Millennium Software merged their operations to better offer world-class software systems and support to the affordable housing industry.

The Present

Over the years, we have established ourselves as experts in public housing regulation, and we are a leader in expert software systems for subsidized housing organizations. Today, our data management system integrates from tenant data management to accounting data management to maintenance management. More than 400 housing authorities across the country use our software, and many of those clients have been with us for over a decade. Perhaps the best measure of the quality of our products and services is that we enjoy a customer retention rate of 94%.

Our success is based on our commitment to building software systems for the unique needs of public housing managers and supporting them with professional individuals. Our expert team has a combined total of over 80 years of individual experience in the public housing industry, including 20 years of experience in housing authorities.
