Orchard has won a multi-million pound managed services contract with the Northern Ireland Housing Executive (NIHE).
The contract is part of a wider ‘IT Futures’ project for NIHE, including migrating its Orchard housing management system and other business applications to IT Assist, the Northern Ireland government’s shared IT services organisation.
As part of the new contract, Orchard will further its service provision with extended out-of-hours support and system monitoring through a managed service provision, provided seven days per week across all eight of NIHE’s Orchard Housing environments.
Sean Nolan, head of IT services, Northern Ireland Housing Executive, said, “We are very pleased to have awarded this contract and we’re looking forward to working with the Orchard team to deliver an innovative service to meet the demands of our customers in a constantly evolving digital world.”
Joanna Lewis, head of sales, Orchard, said, “It’s fantastic that we have secured this contract to provide our managed services to NIHE, one of our biggest customers since 2007.”
