As Housing Associations face mounting pressure to deliver high levels of services as well as manage housing stock and maintain assets, the use of location intelligence to achieve this is becoming inevitable.
This conference will explore GIS technology and how it assists housing associations in meeting their remit, whatever their size.
Cadcorp will be demonstrating the wide range of tools that are available and how they can be used to manage property portfolios and improve services to tenants while reducing costs at the same time.
Who should attend?
This free-to-attend conference is aimed at business managers, IT managers, and GIS managers from the UK housing and land management sectors. Its objective is to demystify the underlying technology of GIS and demonstrate the practical contribution of GIS and web mapping to the housing sector.
This event will be equally relevant to housing associations considering investing in GIS technology for the first time, and to those looking to get more from their existing investment in GIS.
Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to and learn from presentations, case studies and demonstrations from practitioners and suppliers alike. Cadcorp will be demonstrating a range of relevant web products including Web Map Layers, ReportIT, Local Knowledge™, and Notice Board™.
Refreshment breaks and a free lunch will provide ample opportunity for networking with like-minded professionals.
