The housing association industry is under pressure like never before - it's undergoing rapid digital transformation, with increasing reliance on technology to streamline operations, improve tenant services, and reduce costs.

Protecting your organisation

The data of tenants, along with financial and operational information, is all highly sensitive and must be protected against malicious activity. However, you may not have the internal skills or resources to implement round-the-clock proactive monitoring to keep threats at bay.

OneAdvanced Cyber Security Services can provide stronger security through our proactive threat intelligence, dedicated teams of experienced security professionals and our ‘Everything’s Covered’ approach to keeping your people and data safe. We can give you that piece of mind that your environment is secure, whilst reducing the risk of a breach which can cause unrecoverable reputational and financial damage.


Seamless collaboration

Collaboration is essential for housing associations to effectively work with external partners, such as contractors, suppliers, and tenants. However, collaboration can be challenging, especially with remote teams and multiple stakeholders.

Our Modern Workplace team provide remote access solutions, collaboration tools, and virtual meeting platforms. This may involve creating virtual private networks (VPNs) to allow employees to securely access resources from home, implementing project management tools, and using collaboration platforms such as Microsoft Teams. We can ensure productivity never dips, while you focus on strategic priorities.


Leveraging the power of cloud

Cloud can be hugely advantageous – providing you with wherever and whenever flexibility, allowing you to scale in response to demand, opex costing, and the possibilities for competitive advantage and productivity gains through automation and intelligent data. However, getting started and keeping on top of ongoing management isn't always easy.

We recognise that organisations are at different stages in their cloud journey, and we advise, assist, secure and operate wherever you may be. Our range of public, private and hybrid services enable us to provide you with the support you need to fully leverage the power of the cloud and drive your business forward.


Proactive support

From managing tenant information to maintaining properties, IT plays a crucial role in enabling housing organisations to carry out their day-to-day activities. However, without proper IT support, housing associations can face a range of challenges that can impact their ability to serve their residents effectively.

We are able to support individual applications through to your entire infrastructure environment, creating a tailored solution to suit your business. Our managed services can streamline IT operations while also improving security, compliance, costs, and overall business performance - guiding your on organisation on the journey to a stronger future.


"Having OneAdvanced manage all aspects of both the software and hardware of such a critical finance system has taken away a huge headache for us. This has been a real benefit since going into lockdown."
