Dozens of new tech firms are entering the social housing market.

From global players such as Microsoft to niche firms offering bolt-on solutions, landlords are finally facing an abundance of choice in an area that has been calling out for competition and innovation.

So, how do landlords start to unpick this rapidly developing marketplace and begin to select and implement the right mix of tech to meet evolving business needs and ultimately improve services to tenants?

In our latest free best practice group meeting we’ll take a look at some of the new tech solutions entering the market and explore how the right internal skills and processes are essential in developing a coordinated strategy for selecting tech partners.
