It’s been a busy month for our Housing Solutions Division as we attended  two major events in the Social Housing calendar. We love attending these events as they provide an ideal opportunity to showcase our newest technologies, chat to our ever growing customer base and keep up to date  on the latest challenges affecting housing associations.

Housing Technology

Housing Technology took place at the Oxford Belfry hotel on 7th and 8th March, and brought together IT professionals and exhibitors from across the UK. One of the main themes introduced in the opening keynote from extreme environment athlete Richard Parks was all about embracing an ‘adventure mindset’ and enabling each member of your team to break boundaries – an approach that resonated with many housing associations currently planning or undertaking their  digital transformation strategies.

Our experts were in attendance to discuss the various ways in which our IT services can assist with digital transformation, from cloud hosting and mobile working to cyber security and disaster recovery. Attendees were particularly interested to hear how closely we work with housing associations to identify the right cloud hosting option for them, whether it’s fully hosted, on-premise or hybrid, and the potential efficiencies and cost savings cloud can bring them.

NHF Housing Finance

The NHF Housing Finance Conference & Exhibition is a regular fixture in our events calendar and provides a fantastic stage for our finance software solutions. At the ACC Liverpool on 14th and 15th March, members of our Housing Solutions Division gave demos of solutions including Infor OS Lite – an add-on bundle which effectively combines a number of Infor modules including Homepages, Integrated Document Management, Ming.le collaboration, Infor BI and ION Workflow which work seamlessly with Infor SunSystems to provide an innovative user experience.

Also on show was business intelligence solution Qlik Sense, as well as Infor SunSystems companion solutions from  Professional Advantage and mobile working and self-service solution PanConnect from Housing Insight.

The event provided a great opportunity to catch up with our customers to hear about their  priorities  for the upcoming year.
