Westward Housing Group is a major housing association in the south-west of England.

It encompasses Help to Buy South West and Horizon Homes. As a developing landlord, Westward Housing Group builds new homes across the region, working in partnership with local authorities to rent homes to those in need.

Westward's objectives include: provide places where people want to live, develop and invest in homes and services, provide a great place for its staff to work, maintain its financial strength and deliver great value through efficiency and innovation.

Westward Housing is committed to transparency and efficiency, from costs to governance, across the organisation.

Lucy Rickson, Corporate Support Manager at Westward, was looking for a board portal solution that could help them deliver on their goals as well as cut costs. After talking to peers at Coastline Housing Association (see our case study) who use Convene, she got in touch with us.

Convene's Senior Digital Product Expert, tailored their experience from demonstration and on-site training, to the implementation of Convene so they could start their digitalisation process and paperless goals as soon as possible.

During their trial, Westward Housing was impressed by Convene's ease of use, fine grained access control as well as the ability to customise the document retention schedule.
