The Challenge

Allowing their customers to perform self-service activites online was a key goal for CHS Group. With the ever increasing need to let customers perform tasks at a time convenient to them, whenever they needed to, CHS Group asked VerseOne Housing to help deliver a winning solution.

For CHS Group, it was important that their new customer portal should reflect a modern brand with a wide range of features, so that customers could be confident carrying out self-service online.

  • report new repairs of different types
  • read FAQs
  • make contact and other enquiries
  • see content targeted at their own personal circumstances

What They Say

I absolutely love the "My CHS" portal, allowing me to view my rent statement any time. This is a brilliant thing you have developed.

CHS Group case study feedback 2

Working with CHS on this project has been a pleasure, from the discovery and definition all the way through to the public launch. Their promotion and user engagement has worked really well, and we’re delighted that they’ve already had over 200 sign-ups. This represents almost 10% of eligible tenancies, a fantastic achievement only two weeks after going live.

Kerry Gaudelli, VerseOne Housing Project Manager

Thank you to everyone for the help you’ve all given us in going live on time and with a site we’re very pleased with – customer feedback continues to be very positive, so I’m sure it will go from strength to strength. It is indeed important that we have so much control over the content going forward, as we want to keep it fresh and engaging.
