Housing systems in the year 2020 - Part 2
In the year 2020, we are seeing a lot of noise in the options open to landlords in selecting a housing system. Dave Loudon continues to run through some options and opinions.
It's new, it's unconventional, its the unconvention, it's the UnCon.
The Unconventional convention, the UnCon is coming to a screen near you.
On the 18th and 19th of June, the first online convention related to technology in housing is being held.
Two new services coming soon.
1. Data Quality Dashboard, a service that will truly bring a proactive approach to data quality.
2. Training and Knowledge as a Service. TKaaS. Avoid costly training solutions with our new customisable and ready to go solutions at a cost that won’t break the bank.
Keep watching this space.
