Sovereign Housing Association and PowerObjects, an HCL Technologies Company Announce Partnership to Implement Microsoft Dynamics 365

Sovereign and PowerObjects partner to configure Microsoft Dynamics 365 for use across Tenancy Management, Customer Contact and Sovereign Living services

Sovereign Housing Association and PowerObjects, an HCL Technologies Company are pleased to announce their partnership to configure Microsoft Dynamics 365 for use across Sovereign’s Tenancy Management, Customer Contact and Sovereign Living services.  The project will support Sovereign’s aspiration to become a modern and connected business, transforming services to deliver a contextual and individualised experience for each customer.

“The goal of this project is to transform how we manage our relationships with customers and what our customers in turn experience when they interact with us,” says Sam Dart, Head of Digital Technology Services at Sovereign. “We aspire to be a growing, influential, modern and connected business, enabled by our technological capabilities to maintain a competitive advantage.”

PowerObjects, utilising their long-standing partnership with tech-giant Microsoft, will support the delivery of Sovereign’s wider strategic business objectives including managing customer demand, proactively managing risk and delivering services more efficiently.

“We are expanding our channel offering to meet growing and changing customer expectations,” says Dart. “As part of our digital programme we’ll make a wider range and choice of contact channels available to customers, all designed to interact seamlessly with each other.”

Sovereign plans to use Dynamics to become more proactive in how they deliver services to customers using data and wider Cloud services to identify at the earliest opportunity risks that could become serious incidents, and prioritise those responses according to root causes. With Dynamics 365 for Field Service, Sovereign will be able to deploy the right resource, to the right person, at the right time.

“Using Dynamics and its wider digital platform capabilities, we have the opportunity to deliver customer-facing services more efficiently,” says Sam Dart. “We will deploy resource more effectively; reduce the level of duplication and double handling in our management of customer contacts; and dial down the level of avoidable customer contact.”

PowerObjects, integrated PowerProperty solution for housing associations, is built on Microsoft Dynamics technology and offers housing associations a platform to enable innovation and digital service improvements. “Regardless of the channel customers choose to do business with Sovereign, a personalised and contextual service must be delivered from the front to the back-office,” say Rahul Pawar, Sales Director, EMEA at PowerObjects.  “Dynamics will play a key role in enabling demand management and operating an omni-channel contact center for Sovereign.”

Sovereign Housing Association is a social business and one of the largest housing associations in the United Kingdom. They provide over 57,000 homes for around 130,000 people in housing need across the south and south west of England and the Isle of Wight. A major developer of affordable housing, Sovereign builds around 1,600 new homes each year to rent or buy.
