Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership has appointed Castleton Technologies to support an extensive digital programme. The project involves migrating DGHP’s daily operations onto a private cloud, moving away from its current on-premise solutions, and a refresh of its desktop software.
This contract is part of a wider transformation agenda which includes the procurement of a new unified communications telephony solution, the transfer of all of DGHP’s staff onto Microsoft Office 365 and the procurement of a fully-integrated business solution to replace DGHP’s current systems.
Hugh Carr, director of HR and IT, Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership, said, “This exciting development with Castleton Technologies marks the next stage in our journey to become the best landlord in Scotland. Our programme is ambitious, but we hope it will confirm DGHP as a progressive housing provider of the future by enabling us to provide excellent services to our tenants and create a great place to work for our 200 staff.”
DGHP was independently advised by Alysium Consulting during the technology tendering and procurement processes.
