Network Homes provides homes of all tenures, operating across the entire housing market – from social rented properties to penthouse apartments in prestigious private developments for sale or for market rent.
The enactment of continuous government change is restructuring the marketplaces in which Network Housing Group operates. Technology is recognised as a key enabler as the Group transforms, responds to change and drives further growth opportunities. The development of a new IT Strategy represented an opportunity for the Group to proactively understand the changing demands of their customers and the impact this was having on their operational directorates. It also provided a timely opportunity, through the delivery of new technology, to enable the business to achieve the goals set out in the 5-year business strategy. Network Homes also capitalised on the opportunity to develop a clear technology and ‘digital’ direction after the cancellation of a planned merger with Catalyst Housing.
The scope of the engagement was to develop a ‘Business to IT strategy’ for the entire Network Homes organisation. A key element of the scope of the strategy was that it should be developed from a clear understanding of business demand and also support the delivery of the corporate business plan and directorate service plans. The resulting IT Strategy therefore had to define a 3-year transformation for the Network Housing Group business, articulating not only the desired outcome but also the journey required to achieve it.
