Exploring communal repairs: insights and opportunities

About this event

Read the full transcript

Housing repairs are one of the biggest challenges for councils across the country. Local authorities are constantly looking for ways to simplify the repairs process in a way that supports the needs of residents.

Earlier this year we built a SaaS (software as a service) product to help local authorities save time, money and streamline the process. This way, they can get back to what they do best – supporting residents. 

We want to continue on this journey. Our SaaS product’s first release was for managing dwelling repairs, and the natural next step was to tackle communal repairs.

Join us for this webinar to hear what we learned from our research into the challenges we’re addressing with our next iteration. We’ll explore:

  • why we did the research and who was involved
  • what we found out
  • how the findings will shape our product 

The event is:

  • free to attend
  • up to 1 hour long
  • hosted and recorded via Zoom meetings
  • interactive: ask your questions in the live webinar or email us to follow up if watching on-demand
