Housing Authority


Project Portfolio Management solution for Housing Authority

Consulcad designs and implements PPM Solution for Housing Authority

The Housing Authority is an affordable housing provider, operating in land development, housing construction and property management. The agency delivers quality housing that people can afford and provides people with opportunities to buy a home.

Our task

Housing engaged Consulcad PPM specialists to design and develop a project and portfolio management solution for their existing Microsoft Office 365 environment.

What we did

Working with different business areas across Housing, Consulcad designed and developed a solution based on Microsoft Project Online and SharePoint that integrated seamlessly into the existing Office365 environment.

This was rolled out over a series of modular releases in a ‘try, test, release’ process that had functionality delivered in weeks rather than months. Working in close collaboration with users and management Consulcad delivered enterprise project registration, project status reporting, project collaboration sites and full integration to existing project management toolkits and working, with workflows and approvals.

The PPM solution was designed for different user needs across service delivery, construction and technology business areas.   A firm focus on ease of use based around familiarity with Microsoft products was a key aspect in securing successful user adoption.

The outcome

Housing can assess and score candidate projects against multilayered strategic drivers, initiate projects and track all key activity through to project completion.

The organisation has a single source of truth for all registered projects, much improved transparency of key project information and with that greater confidence in project delivery.
