Paragon, Govanhill and Inquilab housing associations have simultaneously launched new web sites developed by CES Services Management using its Podium content management system. Each project took around 10 weeks to complete and cost an average of £7,500.
Margaret Torrance, director, Paragon Housing Association, said, “More and more people are accessing our services through the internet so the web site is a key part of our customer service and communication strategies. The Podium content management system is easy to manage and very flexible. This means we can publish key information quickly, continue to develop the site at a pace that suits us and respond to the needs of our service users.”
Anne Robertson, corporate services manager, Govanhill Housing Association, added, “The implementation was painless and CES’s training has helped us to create an interesting and responsive web site. We are now considering which of the many add-on modules are best suited for us to develop the functionality of the site further to help tenants, residents and our voluntary committee members.”
London-based Inquilab is combining the new web site with a tenant portal which will allow residents to access secure information from other housing management systems such as rent and repairs.
