Orchard is delighted to announce its partnership with Bolton at Home to provide a fully integrated Financial Management and Procurement solution with the objective of delivering business change and efficiencies across the organisation.

As a modern, forward thinking housing organisation, Bolton at Home required a proven, established and scalable finance solution that will transform its business-critical financial functions. Orchard will work closely with Bolton at Home to ensure that both parties succeed together in meeting this objective.

As the leading supplier of OpenAccounts to the housing sector, with Orchard Financials, Bolton at Home is gaining an award winning finance system backed up by Orchard’s substantial specialist sector expertise and knowledge. Orchard Financials is a fully integrated finance solution that not only has that flexibility and scalability to grow and evolve with Bolton at Home but actually addresses real day to day concerns whilst still delivering to the ‘Value for Money’ agenda. Part of the implementation process involves Orchard Financials integrating with other third party solutions.

Commenting on the partnership, Edward Mellor, Director of Finance at Bolton at Home said, “Staff at Bolton at Home are looking forward to implementing the OpenAccounts solution alongside experts from Orchard. We expect the system to make a significant difference to the way we work and to the quality of information we receive from our finance system. We can’t wait to get going with implementation of the system in time for our 2017/18 financial year.“

Orchard’s Sales and Marketing Director, John Doughty continued, “Orchard is looking forward to developing a long term relationship with Bolton at Home. Our aim in all implementations is to ensure that we deliver efficiencies across the organisation and will continue that strategy with Bolton at Home.”

Operating as a registered charity providing social housing, Bolton at Home took over the ownership of the houses formerly owned by Bolton Council in 2011 and is now responsible for managing some 18,000 properties in the borough.
