One Manchester was launched in 2015 when Eastlands Homes and City South Manchester Housing Trust joined together. As a result, the newly-formed organisation wanted to consolidate its existing finance systems onto a single platform as well as consolidate and maintain only one housing management system by October 2016.
One Manchester’s tender invitations were for the provision of a licence for up to 300 desktop users (and 12,500 properties under management) of its proposed new housing management systems. Following a series of demonstrations and reference site visits, One Manchester decided to move the whole group to the Aareon QL housing management system.
Adam Cowking, transition project manager, One Manchester, said, “After a detailed review, One Manchester saw that Aareon QL was best-placed to meet our needs. We chose Aareon on the strength of its core product, a clear roadmap that supported our wider ambitions, and a strong track record in successful partnership working.”
