Orbit Group takes SDS Sequel out on the road

One of the largest housing organisations in the country, Orbit Group provides more than 38,000 high-quality homes in the Midlands, South East and East of England. Its operating associations, Orbit Heart of England, Orbit East and Orbit South, help to build strong communities and meet local housing needs in more than 100 local authority areas. Orbit Homes, its development and sales organisation, provides more than 1,000 homes a year.

Additionally, Orbit Services offers a full range of back office functions and specialist support to external clients and boasts two CIH Housing Heroes awards - ICT Team of the Year and Procurement Team of the Year 2012.

Orbit is a modern and dynamic social business with a shared ambition of 'Building Communities'.

Using SDS Products:

Since 2003, the group have been using SDS ProVal to produce their development appraisals and in 2006 installed partner products Sequel for project management and Landval for land valuations. More recently, their version of ProVal has been upgraded to new ProVal LS.

Developing Sequel Tablet:

A need to access Sequel remotely prompted Orbit's Development Business Support Officer, Kiran Kalair, to approach SDS for a solution. The two organisations have since worked closely together to produce new Sequel Tablet, allowing users to access the Project and Property sections of the program whilst out on site. Currently under trial by Orbit's development staff, this new addition will be available shortly to all Sequel users.

Kiran reports "We needed a solution that would help make Orbit Homes a truly mobile workforce. The need to increase productivity and remove duplication of workload was a primary focus of the Development and Sales and Marketing teams. SDS supplied us with a fantastic product which enabled us to do exactly that."

Phil Shelton, Chief Executive of SDS says:

"It's always a pleasure to work with Orbit. They have a professional and commercial focus on their development programme, and we're delighted to be able to assist them in their ambitious growth plans."
