Housing Associations

TSG works with housing associations across the UK

Housing Associations we work with

Proud to be working with some of the UK's leading housing associations

At TSG, we work with housing associations of all sizes across the broadest range of technologies.

Our understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced within the sector have been built on a strong partnership approach with organisations including Home Group, Vivid and GreenSquare.

We believe our groundbreaking work to connect Microsoft SharePoint with all of the major housing management systems will unlock additional value for many housing associations from their investment in Office 365.

We’ve been working with SharePoint since its inception in 2001 and have successfully implemented more than 400 solutions, including award-winning enterprise document and content management applications for UK and worldwide organisations.

“After building a lasting relationship and receiving recommendations from TSG we decided to go ahead with the implementation of LiveTiles and subscribed to the 365 Cloud Academy online portal. We now use these valuable tools across the company which helps us to be more agile and efficient”

- Antony, Head of Digital Engagement, Housing Association

Nine Microsoft Gold competencies provide an indication of our breadth of expertise, commitment to the development of our people and our desire to build successful solutions for our customers.

Our approach

A number of our relationships have started with a high-level session delivered to key decision-makers to show ‘the art of the possible’ with Office 365.

Subsequent ‘discovery’ workshops focus on identifying how specific challenges might be addressed by embracing the full suite of tools available within Office 365 including Teams, Flow, PowerApps, etc. along with integration into other systems where possible.

It’s an agile and flexible approach that allows customers to fully explore potential benefits at the same time as defining a clear project scope.

We see the adoption of Office 365 as an ongoing process aligned to digital transformation aims and delivering continuous improvement across all areas of the organisation.

“The TSG team are always keen to show us the art of the possible with O365. They are very enthusiastic! This has resulted in a large-scale rollout of Microsoft Teams to improve communication and collaboration and Power BI for business intelligence at GreenSquare.”

- Rob, Group Head of ICT, GreenSquare Group

TSG spotlight on GreenSquare

GreenSquare Group is a leading housing association that develops a range of brand-new homes – for shared ownership, sale and rent. GreenSquare Group wanted to utilise all applications within the Office 365 suite, especially SharePoint Online, to create an enterprise-wide document management solution which would integrate with its housing management system.
