Altair announces strategic partnership

Altair today announced the formation of a strategic partnership with 3C Consultants (3C), one of the largest providers of IT consultancy to the social housing sector.

3C logoAltair has a growth strategy to become a ‘one-stop shop’, able to offer as wide a range of high level professional support services as its housing sector clients require. This new partnership with 3C recognises the increasingly essential part that IT plays in delivering improvement to both financial and service performance.

They have worked with in excess of 200 housing associations, helping them deliver not just strategic ambition, but demonstrable social value. This has involved providing assistance to organisations that are modernising their businesses by pioneering the use of online services though digital transformation, often referred to as Channel Shift.
