Home Connections is delighted to have been nominated for the Best Technology Partner category at the very first Housing Digital Innovation Awards. The nomination is a recognition for the collaborative work with Homes for Haringey to implement the e-learning platform, EazyLearn, as a cost-saving solution to replace face-to-face workshops and reach a wider group of people.
We built a fully editable and extendable online learning platform, tailored to Homes for Haringey’s specific needs. The successful rollout of this new platform came at the right time, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
By offering accessible and 24/7 available online courses, EazyLearn helped 800 housing applicants gain the knowledge needed to make sound housing decisions. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive - from those surveyed, 97% have said they would put what they learnt into practice and 86% agreed that the courses were useful in teaching things they did not know. One of the learners had this to say about the online module:
“I found the Tenancy Training module easy to use and I learnt new things about private renting. I work full time, so I appreciated being able to complete the training at a convenient time without having to take the day off work. I was able to complete the modules within the comfort of my own home and did not have to arrange childcare”
The Best Technology Partner category focuses on organisations that have developed and delivered emerging technologies to help customers achieve business transformation and success. Commenting on her experience working with Home Connections, Beverley Faulkner from Homes for Haringey said:
“We have worked with Home Connections on several projects over the years and have always been impressed with their ‘can do’ attitude, efficiency and value for money. Home Connections are also great partners to work with on innovative projects such as this where they were able to realise a vision that we had.”
We are proud to be recognised by Housing Digital as a company dedicated to providing the most effective and efficient digital solutions for our customers.
