Another success in the housing sector as St Vincent’s Housing Association chooses Cascade HR!

St Vincent’s Housing Association provides affordable homes to rent across the North West meeting the demands of today’s challenging housing market.  Investing in communities across 17 local authority areas, they offer supported housing, general needs housing, a home care and repair service and are working on a number of new development and sustainability projects.

Nicola Brandon, Personnel & Training Manager at St Vincent’s comments on their journey so far;

Why did St Vincent’s decide to implement HR software?

As our organisation is growing, we needed a more sophisticated approach to managing and reporting on our people resource.  We wanted to give managers real time information to help them make resource planning decisions and we wanted our staff to have access to simple and user friendly self service system.

  Via which methods did you search for this?

We spent a lot of time looking for the right software to meet our needs.  We went to tradeshows and did some research on the internet.  We also spoke with our colleagues in the sector to get the inside track on what was available in the market.

  How did you evaluate the various software options?

As I say, we spoke to a lot of colleagues in the housing sector.  A few were already using Cascade and were very complimentary.  We also did some site reference visits to see how the system worked in practice not just for HR but also the managers, the staff and the IT department.

 Why did you choose Cascade?

It really covered all our needs at a very affordable price.  The staff have been flexible and supportive throughout.  It is important to us to have not only confidence in the product but also in the support.  We really think Cascade can achieve this!
