SDS, a leading software provider in social housing, is celebrating 20 years in business. The Surrey-based company provides real-time software to help housing providers with development appraisals, project workflows, and cash flow management.
The company was started by David Shelton in 1994 and now has 14 employees and an annual turnover of around £1 million. For the past five years, David’s son Phil has been chief executive. He said, “It’s been a fantastic experience and we’re looking forward to the next 20 years, innovating and creating cutting-edge software for our customers.
“When my father set up SDS 20 years ago, his vision was to innovate and help people understand development. We are continuing that ethos today and breaking new ground with effective, user-friendly solutions. We’re always aiming to refine and improve the technology to help the housing sector.”
Kate Varney, development and new business officer, Longhurst Group, said, “SDS and Sequel have dramatically improved the time it takes to update our cash flows, and its training and support are always brilliant.”
