Monmouthshire Housing Association provide and manage affordable housing in Monmouthshire for people who need them and to ensure all those homes meet the Welsh Housing Quality Standard. The Association manages and maintains around 3,600 homes and 290 leasehold properties, as well as large numbers of garages and other parcels of land around Monmouthshire.
The housing association wanted to move away from storing contract information in excel spreadsheets, while also wanting to find a tool that could extract particular information to create reports. Target have worked with Monmouthshire Housing Association to build and quickly deploy a fully functioning contract management system.
Target’s Accord contract information management and reporting system is now allowing the organisation to securely store and gain control over all their important contract and supplier data, as well as have clear visibility over the department activities and have the ability to extract any data set to create the reports they need.
Steve Higginson, Deputy Chief Executive said, “We were previously working in spreadsheets, and finding it difficult to update and share information across the teams; which made us worry about the actual integrity of our data.
“The Accord system is helping us gain complete control over our procurement activities and is giving us peace of mind, knowing all our data is secure and in one central place.”
The Association needed a system that could easily migrate with our data as well as provide a new and simple way of managing our contracts and suppliers; and have the functionality to provide reports on specific data sets for any audit or review – and Accord has provided just that.”
He continued: “The Accord system is helping us gain complete control over our procurement activities and is giving us peace of mind, knowing all our data is secure and in one central place. We needed to better manage, share and report on our important contracts data, and Target have delivered – on budget, on time and beyond our initial expectations.”
