BigChange has appointed long-time housing IT specialist David Todd to spearhead its expansion in the UK social housing and local government sectors.
Todd spent 16 years as a director of Xmbrace, later part of Kirona, the provider of mobile scheduling software bought by Advanced in 2019. He is also on the board of Sovereign Property Services and managing director of the UK subsidiary of cloud specialist Luminis.
Formed in 2013, Leeds-based BigChange has over 40,000 mobile workers and back-office personnel using its all-in-one mobile workforce and job management solution for housing repair and maintenance operations.
Martin Port, founder and CEO, BigChange, said, “David has extensive experience in social housing but crucially he brings his unrivalled knowledge of using IT solutions to manage mobile field services in housing and local government.”
David Todd said, “Until now, BigChange has very much been a hidden secret in the social housing sector. However, with an all-in-one cloud system combining CRM, job scheduling, vehicle tracking and a mobile workforce app, it’s a solution that I’m sure will be welcomed by many.
“In particular, BigChange offers a completely paperless way of working, with total 24/7 visibility of all mobile repair and maintenance work and that will completely revolutionise social housing services.”
