Progress Housing Group Selects Capita

Capita Integrated Business Solutions has been awarded a three-year contract to provide its financial and procurement software, Integra, to Progress Housing Group, which manages over 10,400 properties across the UK.

The software will allow Progress Housing Group to improve a range of processes for its finance, payroll and HR functions. This includes automated alerts and reports, providing timely and accurate business intelligence which can be easily accessed by employees to aid business decision making and improves control of spending. The system also manages other important finance activities including purchasing and invoicing.

Integra also integrates with the self-service HR and payroll software, delivered through Capita’s partnership, which will allow Progress Housing Group’s managers to carry out activities such as recruitment, absence, time and attendance management more efficiently.

Andy Speer, executive director of finance and resources at Progress Housing Group, said: “This represents a significant investment for the Group with the key drivers to provide self-service to staff and customers, and streamline processes which will improve efficiency and achieve value for money from the investment.

Progress Housing Group has grown significantly since its formation in 1994. Capita’s software is comprehensive, can integrate with other software and is flexible – so it will grow with us.”

Eamonn Morris, managing director at Capita Integrated Business Solutions, said: “Progress Housing Group provides vital support services to a range of clients including keyworkers, people with learning disabilities or mental health needs, through to victims of domestic abuse. At a time when the housing crisis continues to grip the UK, it is important housing organisations have access to the very best tools to manage their finances efficiently and effectively so they can continue to meet demand. We are delighted to be expanding our reach into the housing market.”
