A survey published in Inside Housing, showed that 97% of housing professionals state that they are relying on technology to help their organisations move to a new operating model that will create the savings required to address the pressures of budget cuts, welfare reform and rent reductions. Many however, cannot afford a dedicated IT Director and few have technology or digitalisation skills at the top tier of their organisation.
This lack of IT expertise often leads to inefficiency, with poorly performing IT and inappropriate supplier contracts; IT staff lacking guidance and development; unnecessary distraction at executive level and an inability to offer compelling digital services online.
The Virtual IT Director service from 3C Consultants provides a credible and cost effective solution. The standard service, which includes the provision of a dedicated part-time Virtual IT Director one day a month is designed to be cost neutral and normally falls below standing order thresholds.
Having worked with RP’s throughout the UK, assisting them with all aspects of ICT strategy and operation, our experienced consultants are uniquely qualified to provide the support required to maximise the benefits that can be gained from technology; ensuring services are aligned to business strategy and supporting your organisation to achieve excellence.
The service will also help you to ensure that data is properly managed and utilised throughout your business, introducing IT related performance indicators that reference sector performance data and best practice, so providing the information you need to make astute business decisions.
To achieve greatest advantage from technology, internal cultural change is needed and your team will require mentoring and coaching for this to be achieved. The services provides guidance, drawing on experience from both inside and outside the social housing sector.
So if your business lacks ICT expertise at executive level, consider utilising 3C Consultant’s Virtual IT Director service to provide you with the strategic and operational ICT guidance that you need for your organisation to achieve its full potential.
