The shift to digital provides its own challenges to the housing sector. For the board in particular the change can seem daunting as they’re already under pressure.
In reality, many of us are now more comfortable using technology in our personal lives than in our professional roles. We have smart phones and tablets. We’re adept at asking for help from family or friends, sharing what we have learnt and all with a curiosity of what’s next.
It seems everywhere people are going digital. The Community Housing Cymru Group conferences are now paperless, with information available through their website or an event app. And this is a common trend at such events. You can even follow event conversation on Twitter, #chcgov15.
Those who sit on a housing association board may therefore be wondering how come they’re still waiting for the post to get their meeting paper packs? Isn’t there some way that they can get information quicker, keep up-to-date with less tedium, and open up new ways of transparent and collaborative working?
BoardPacks is the software designed to bring everything a board member needs to their tablet screen or web browser. Whilst with your personal technology you’ve had friends and family to help, with BoardPacks you’re not only reliant on your co-workers, but have 24/7 access to the support team who will help you out, whatever the difficulty.
The software is already used by housing associations across the UK. Tai Ceredigion recently implemented it to help with their meeting management.
“The decision to use BoardPacks has not only transformed the administration and ease of distribution but also saved Tai Ceredigion money. By comparing the reproduction costs, postage charge and administration time with the purchase of the system and iPads for the board, Tai Ceredigion has already seen a substantial saving.”
