Castleton Technology has won a five-year contract with Clanmil Ireland to implement its latest cloud-based housing management system, Castleton Community.
Castleton said that its Community software is designed for housing providers with fewer than 1,000 properties who typically struggle with capacity issues as well as limited IT infrastructure investment.
Jimmy Rogers, sales and marketing director, Castleton Technology, said, “We have selected essential modules from our main suite of housing software and created ‘lite’ versions suitable for the needs of smaller housing providers. And while customers might start with this lite version of our solutions, Castleton Community is fully scalable to allow more modules to be added as and when needed.”
Michael Haynes, chief executive, Clanmil Ireland, said, “We reviewed the options on the market at a time when Castleton Community was in its development stages. We were keen to see the idea grow as it offers the ideal set of solutions for our growing organisation.
“We chose Castleton because of their established housing solution, which is well known in the housing sector. This, plus the launch of their Community software means it was a perfect fit for an organisation of our size.”
The first phase of Clanmil Ireland’s implementation will cover the main housing management system, Castleton EDRM lite and Agile lite (Castleton’s mobile working solution), with the second phase to include Castleton’s Financials software.
Haynes said, “Looking at our internal business case, we quickly realised that Castleton could give us an excellent return on investment and the solution will also let us transform our business to meet the challenges of a digital age.”
