In a bid to save money and move towards paperless operations, Viridian Housing has given an iPad to each member of its National Residents’ Forum (NRF).
Shaun Lansfield, chairman of the NRF, said, “In the past, we were all sending and receiving so many paper-based communications, and it was clear we needed a better system. The iPads have become an essential part of our operations. They ensure we all receive relevant documents before our meetings, communicate effectively throughout and stay in touch after.”
Matthew Fox, chief executive, Viridian Housing, said, “We calculated the cost of providing the NRF members with papers for each of their meetings and found that the payback on providing them with iPads was just over a year. We believe all residents should have access to the internet and we are now considering how we can make this a part of our core service rather than a discretionary add-on.”
