The challenge

One substantial cost Orbit needed to tackle was its largely paper-based tenancy sign up process. This admin-heavy task involved housing officers and tenants filling in multiple forms which then had to be manually entered into Orbit’s housing management system back at the office.

What we did

Prodo’s solution was an iPad app and online portal called Orbit Move, accessible to both applicants and housing officers. The end-to-end digital tenancy sign-up platform, integrated with Orbit’s housing management system, is the first of its kind in the Housing sector. Key features included housing officers being able to create new records on the move, tenants able to enter their application details, successful applicants able to give feedback and the ability to digitally 'sign' tenancy agreements. The app has won a number of awards, including the Housing Innovation Awards Most Innovative App/Online Tool and the Midlands Chartered Institute of Housing Excellence in use of Technology Award.
