The housing sector is undergoing significant change. Many providers are exploring ways to offer a more diverse housing portfolio without compromising core tenant services. By nature, these commercial activities require new investment in IT, infrastructure and communication tools that work seamlessly with existing asset management, CRM, repairs and workforce management systems, and offer enhanced collaboration and processes between remote and office-based staff.
Tenant engagement and channel choice remain high priorities, as the sector strives to encourage greater digital inclusion. As a result, the principal challenge for today's housing sector is to utilise technology that delivers business transformation and meets stringent regulatory requirements, including the HCA's Value for Money (VFM) standard.
Unified Communications(UC) provides a robust communications framework that enables housing providers to enhance service provision, accomplish digital inclusion, deliver business transformation, improve mobile working and achieve a significantly reduced total cost of ownership.
