Southside Housing has chosen Orchard as the ERP partner for its digital transformation programme, with the deployment of Orchard’s housing, asset and finance software packages.
Southside Housing’s digital strategy is intended to be underpinned by a suite of technology that’s customer accessible, produces dynamic information, supports efficiency and creates mobile flexibility.
Chris Milborrow, business improvement manager, Southside Housing, said, “Businesses can often get bogged down as a result of inefficient processes and data-quality issues. This project will enable us to overcome those challenges and focus to a greater extent on giving our staff more time to support our tenants and communities.
“One of the main reasons we chose Orchard was because their team seemed to really grasp and could articulate our key challenges. They built a good rapport with our assessment panel and users from across the business could see us working well together as a result of their open and consultative approach.”
By implementing the three core Orchard solutions across housing, asset and finance management and integrating as many areas of its systems as possible, Southside Housing aims to build a much more consistent approach to IT, including the removal of as many sources of siloed information as possible.
