Following the success of Housing Technology’s series of guides to artificial intelligence, omni-channel and CRM, finance and procurement, and business intelligence in social housing, we are about to start the research and production for our two new guides to housing management systems and connected homes.
The Housing Technology guide to ‘connected homes’, supported by FireAngel, will focus on how housing providers and local authorities can use networks of IoT devices across their property portfolios to gather data to support their ongoing operations and strategic planning. Moving beyond the tactical use of IoT device data by individual tenants, the guide will cover how housing providers and LAs can aggregate torrents of IoT data and turn it into meaningful insights.
The Housing Technology guide to housing management systems, supported by Aareon UK, will cover the rationale behind HMS replacements, the alternatives to ‘traditional’ HMS in the form of ERP systems and new cloud-based ‘disruptors’, what to look for during HMS procurement activities, and the business, IT and cultural changes inherent in HMS migration projects.
If you are interested in contributing an article to either/both of the guides, please get in touch with Alastair Tweedie (editor & co-founder, Housing Technology) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
