We’ve been shortlisted for a UK Housing Award!

UKHA Socials

We’re delighted to announce that our smart collection points with Jewson Partnership Solutions (JPS) have been shortlisted for the Innovator of the Year 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 be the first customer in the UK to work with JPS to use the new smart lockers. Being shortlisted for the Innovator of the Year award at the UK Housing Awards is the icing on the cake.

“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. It’s fantastic to be recognised as an innovator in the sector and I’ve got my fingers crossed for the awards ceremony!”

Scott Cooper, Business Director at JPS, said: “I’m thrilled that our smart collection points with GreenSquareAccord have been recognised for such a prestigious award.

“These lockers are making a real difference to our larger customers. 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. We’re proud to be helping GreenSquareAccord operate as efficiently as possible, and I really hope our innovative system gets the recognition it deserves at the awards ceremony.”  

The UK Housing awards ceremony is taking place on Friday 25 November at The Point, Manchester.
