Plentific has signed seven new housing customers for its real-time software – Change Housing, Hyde Group, Longhurst Group, Midland Heart, Platform Housing, Phoenix Community Housing and SW9.
Hyde Group approached Plentific to in order to achieve year-round utilisation of its internal workforce alongside ad-hoc demand for specialist external contractors through the Plentific marketplace. Plentific is providing an online contractor marketplace for Hyde Group and implementing automated workflows for better service delivery.
Steve Austin, head of maintenance, Hyde Group, said, “There is a lot of specialised trade in the market, from individual contractors to SMEs, many of which may not be used to working with large organisations. Through Plentific, we can tap into this resource, with the confidence that each contractor has already been vetted so we can focus on getting the works completed.”
By gaining access to the Plentific platform and its contractor marketplace, Platform Housing now has a more convenient and efficient means of completing its repairs and maintenance.
Louie Nesbitt, quantity surveyor, Platform Housing, said, “We went live with Plentific in December 2022. Our first batch of 500 jobs went live on the Plentific platform on a Tuesday evening, and within 24 hours all of those jobs had been quoted on, with the first job completed on site by the Thursday.”
