Aster Group has set up a new national online forum for all IT and technology staff working in the housing sector – have a look at www.nhitforum.co.uk.
As far as we are aware, there is no other nationwide forum specifically covering technology in social housing, so we applaud Aster Group for setting up this free service, and encourage you to visit the site and register so that you can start contributing to the discussions and posting your own questions to the other members.
Split into a number of sections, covering areas such as IT strategy and technical details on housing-specific applications, the forum hosts documents, supports polls and contains personal profiles of the members.
As well as providing a useful information source and venue for discussions, the forum should make it easier for people to find new contacts at other housing organisations.
All online forums need a critical mass of people to use them in order to be truly useful, so visit www.nhitforum.co.uk and join in the discussions.
