cheduling specialist FLS - FAST LEAN SMART has been shortlisted for Most Innovative Supplier at the prestigious Housing Digital Innovation Awards alongside customer Your Housing Group in the Best Digital Transformation category. Your Housing Group is a Warrington based social housing landlord providing 28,000 homes across 50 Local Authorities.
Following its success at the European Field Service Awards last month—where FLS' best-of-breed dynamic scheduling and route optimisation software FLS VISITOUR won Technology Innovation of the Year together with customer Amey Secure Infrastructure winning Pioneers of the Year—FLS is leading the way with field service at the Housing Digital Innovation Awards, which will be held in Birmingham in February 2023.
FLS' award-winning technology is transforming the ways of working in housing businesses. As part of its digital transformation journey, Your Housing Group was looking for an innovative technology supplier for scheduling its field force which could flex and adapt, integrating with its Microsoft portfolio of Dynamics 365 products and its existing MRI AccuServ repairs management system. With its multi-sector experience and stamp of approval from Microsoft, FLS - FAST LEAN SMART was selected and deployed, seamlessly integrated and achieving record levels of productivity for repairs operatives with significant Return On Investment.
FLS develops world-leading field service technology that mirrors the unique mobile workforce management needs of many sectors including housing and infrastructure, engineering and inspections, healthcare, manufacturing, telco and utilities.
Darren Halliwell, Chief Information Officer at Your Housing Group said;
"Your Housing Group is delighted to be shortlisted in the Best Digital Transformation category and it's great to see FLS - FAST LEAN SMART also shortlisted for their innovative scheduling solutions. With FLS, we brought experience from outside the sector and applied it to social housing, using all of that knowledge, maximising the opportunity for this organisation. It proved to be a game-changer; scheduling with that extra edge. FLS VISITOUR delivers more. It is driving an increase in our operational effectiveness, allows us to understand our business much better and most importantly, provides better service response and value for our customers."
Jeremy Squire, Managing Director at FLS - FAST LEAN SMART UK added;
"Congratulations to all those shortlisted for the Housing Digital Innovation Awards.

It's also superb to see our clients Your Housing Group shortlisted in the Best Digital Transformation category.
The FLS team continues to grow from strength-to-strength in the UK housing market, and have been rated 9.6/10 by our customers including Your Housing Group, Axis Europe PLC, Amey Secure Infrastructure, JLA Group, and HomeServe. We look forward to seeing our customers and partners from across the UK housing sector on the Awards evening!"
