Housing Associations focused on software integration

In our recent 2020 Technology Survey one word kept coming up from respondents of the survey: Integration.

The survey also asked what was the biggest pain point users had with the technology they use in the workplace and again integration loomed large. Lack of integration was the number one pain point – 65.28%, far ahead of ‘software running slow’ which was the second biggest pain point (52.78%).
