Our smart collection points receive Highly Commended at UK Housing Awards

UK Housing Awards

We’re thrilled that our smart collection points with Jewson Partnership Solutions (JPS) have been awarded a Highly Commended for the Innovator of the Year - housing association or local authority award at the UK Housing Awards.

The UK Housing Awards showcase the very best of UK housing and organisations that are delivering high-quality homes and services in partnership with the communities they serve.

Our partnership with JPS is delivering a fresh approach to social housing repairs thanks to the UK’s first smart collection points which give operatives round-the-clock access to materials or tools they’ve ordered, whenever and wherever they need them.

Our Executive Director of Operations Rachel Crownshaw says: “We’re delighted to receive Highly Commended at the UK Housing Awards for our smart collection points. Our partnership is a relatively new one, so to have achieved this recognition after only a few months is a success we are proud of.

“This modern approach is making a real difference to how we work – our operatives now have the necessary parts and equipment to complete a job first time for our customers and we’re seeing a reduction in multiple visits to customers’ homes.

“I truly believe that smart containers are going to be a game changer for housing providers, and it is a huge source of pride that GreenSquareAccord are leading the way.”

Scott Cooper, Business Director at JPS, said: “It’s great that our smart collection points with GreenSquareAccord have been awarded Highly Commended at these prestigious awards.

“We’re proud to be helping GreenSquareAccord operate as efficiently as possible. This technology has the power to transform the way the building supply chain operates, saving our customers time and money every time it’s used.”
