The awards ceremony celebrates the leading talent in the housing sector, those who strive to innovate and transform construction and housing standards.
Now in its fifth year, the annual award ceremony was held at the Grand Connaught Rooms located in Covent Garden where Safetybank founder, Jody Kennedy, accepted the award along with Terry Bird and Sandra Fawcett the directors of Swan Housing.
The Most Innovative IT System/App Award celebrates IT systems and apps being used to improve services and help clients overcome a specific issue within their organisation in the housing sector, specifically systems and apps that have had a positive effect on organisations allowing them to save time and money.
Jody Kennedy, founder of Safetybank, said “We are delighted to once again have demonstrated the value of a winning partnership between Olive Communications and Swan Housing Association at the Housing Innovation Awards 2016.”
“Swan has been a great advocate of our award winning products and services, and this award is a testament to a truly insightful and forward thinking housing provider that has integrated fantastic IT with service delivery to make its supply chain, residents and staff safer.”
Founded in 2003, the company began with an extensive audit of the construction and property industries, a process inspired by feedback from the construction industry and its insurance partners that risk needed to be effectively managed at the front end. From major principal contractors and developers to smaller subcontractors, a common problem was identified. Approaches to health and safety management varied significantly and there was no common – or easy – process around the storage and maintenance of information.
