Social Housing

We understand the daily challenges faced by Social Housing. For years, we’ve been your partner, helping you unlock data-driven decisions, helping you innovate, grow, and achieve more. 

Our Expertise in Social Housing

UK Social Housing organisations face ever-increasing pressures. Delivering exceptional resident care with limited resources, navigating the complexities of regulations, and meeting the RSH’s standards of resident well-being all pose significant challenges. 

That’s where Simpson Associates, a full-service data analytics consultancy with extensive experience in the social housing sector (having partnered with over 33 Housing Associations), comes in. We understand the unique challenges you face.

We recently partnered with Platform Housing to consolidate data from multiple housing management systems within Microsoft Azure and ensure uninterrupted access to reporting and analytics for their day-to-day operations. This is just one example of our commitment to helping Housing Associations leverage data for success.

Our deep understanding of the Social Housing Regulations (RSH) Framework and its focus on resident well-being empowers us to translate your data into actionable insights. We go beyond simply collecting data; we empower you to understand it. This knowledge fuels effective decision-making, allowing you to innovate and grow while optimising resource allocation. 

In short, Simpson Associates helps Social Housing spend less, know more, and ultimately deliver exceptional resident care in a constantly evolving landscape. 

“Working with Simpsons has given us the opportunity to tailor the system to our specific needs. Through the regular ‘show and tell’ sessions, we fed back on the look and feel of the system as and when each part was demonstrated. Simpson’s agile approach to their development allowed them to capture our feedback and translate this into the system design.”

Challenges in Social Housing

Be confident that we understand all challenges are unique and so are our solutions. We adapt them to your evolving needs as you navigate your data journey. Allow us to harness the potential of your data, simplifying the process for you to deliver outstanding services.

As a Housing Association, we collect resident satisfaction data, but translating it into actionable steps can be challenging. How can a housing association like mine transform data into actionable insights that drive positive change for our residents?

Data visualisations would work wonders as they can translate insights into actionable changes and allow for data-driven decisions. Housing associates can even benchmark your data against industry standards to pinpoint areas for improvement. Ultimately, this approach transforms resident satisfaction data into concrete actions.


Our team are really busy. What data strategies can be implemented to save us time and effort on daily tasks, so we can focus on tackling housing association related challenges?

We understand that time is precious. For that reason, we created our Service Charge Simplifier. It means you can focus on innovating while this solution removes the error factor from using manual spreadsheets and helps to avoid costly mistakes.


In what ways can data analytics be leveraged to improve service delivery in UK social housing, while considering budget constraints and resource limitations?

One way you can streamline service delivery is with our Predictive Forecasting for Boiler Maintenance PoC. This reduces unplanned, reactive maintenance that could create a number of challenges, including difficulty with resourcing or more complex repairs.  This puts your team in a proactive position with the power of AI.

We offer a range of solutions and services that have been created with Social Housing in mind. These include: Predictive Forecasting for Boiler Maintenance PoC, Service Charge Simplifier and Microsoft Fabric.
