Devonshires is very proud to be sponsoring Tech@Housing at the prestigious annual Chartered Institute of Housing conference later this month.
With the rapid advance and scope of technology available to the housing sector, housing providers must be smart about how they buy, what they buy, managing, and understanding their kit. I’m very much looking forward to providing legal insight at CIH 2018. Technology can be a significant investment, depending on the packages, customisation and functionality. Get it right and you improve customer experience such as picking up tenant repairs quickly; and facilitate the smooth running and efficiency of your organisation from HM to HR to finance. Get it wrong and you face delays, outages and potentially leakages of data.
Our guidance will cover: the importance of being clear about your needs, understanding what you are buying; having an audit trail around your purchase; whether it’s best to use your expertise to manage in-house or trust in outsourcing; and ensuring compliance with GDPR.
“The tech explosion – investment guidance from the experts” will take place at from 12 noon in the Tech@Housing main theatre. We very much hope you can join us.
