On the 21st November our first Customer & Building Safety Seminar will take place at The House of St Barnabas in London. Bringing together industry experts, the event will be an opportunity to discuss how the housing sector is tackling compliance and why it is no longer enough.
Internet speeds and connectivity are becoming increasingly important for the smooth running of housing and IT systems. We have partnered with Mintivo to offer a great solution.
Manifest are actively working on the development of a broad, more consistent and enhanced level of application management service for customers, building on the typical model of more ad-hoc services currently offered.
Tenant portals or similar online services are a growing trend in the housing sector. And they have certainly come a long way since they first appeared on the market in 2000.
Golding Homes are the fourth customer to use the Tenancy Case Management solution and our CRM service request workflow!
As well as the standard templates, which are Mutual Exchange, Safeguarding and Tenancy Breach, Manifest are working on a Flexible tenancy and Succession template.
What’s the problem?
It is surprising the number of organisations that don’t have a current IT Strategy; it’s often all too easy to give priority to other corporate projects and think that the IT Strategy, which will take a concerted effort to produce, will have to wait until tomorrow. The trouble is that something else always comes along tomorrow and it never gets started or if it does insufficient resources are focussed on it and it takes several months to produce anything coherent.
CityWest homes have opted to go with Manifest’s Tenancy Case Management solution (TCMS). We are looking forward to working with CityWest to implement this for them!

Our posh frocks and dinner jackets have been dusted down, because on Thursday evening we’re off to the Women in Housing Awards in Manchester!
Manifest consultant Ellen is a finalist in the Consultant of the Year category for the fantastic work she has done on projects with clients like Severn Vale Housing and Aspire Housing, using her advanced skills as an experienced Orchard developer to create bespoke solutions that really make a difference to housing associations and their customers alike [read more here].
The Women in Housing Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of outstanding women working in housing. Now in their sixth year, the awards highlight the amazing work and achievements of the many women who make a major contribution.
The Consultant of the Year category is there to acknowledge the work of the many consultants that support housing organisations across the UK. In the words of the organisers, “This award recognises someone who works as a consultant and makes a crucial contribution in housing. A great relationship with the organisation they work with will sit at the heart of their success and they will be able to demonstrate real results.”
With regular client feedback praising Ellen for the great combination of technical knowledge, experience and empathy that she brings to any project, we’re keeping everything crossed that she’ll be bringing home the award.
It’s the first year that one of the Manifest team has been selected as a finalist, and whether Ellen scoops the final award or not, we’re hugely proud that she has made it this far amongst the many women who are doing amazing work in the sector.
