Castles and Coasts implement titantreasury, delivered by Centrus

Castles and Coasts Housing Association (CCHA), has successfully completed the implementation of  TITAN treasury™, the Treasury Management System (TMS) solution provided by Centrus in the UK.

Castles and Coasts, the social landlord based in Carlisle, Cumbria, manages over 7,000 homes with a mission to provide affordable homes and sustainable communities with pride, passion, principles, and partnership.

CCHA’s implementation was well managed by the Centrus team. They took the time to understand the goals and objectives of CCHA, in order to supply the best suited project plan. CCHA were well informed of the progress during their transformation program and at the end of the process were well trained and prepared to use the system for their day-to-day activities, month end and regulatory reporting. They are now ready to retire the manual spreadsheets and time-consuming processes and achieve a more efficient, reliable, and agile treasury function. CCHA are now better positioned to focus more on their strategy and mission to build more affordable homes.

Centrus works with housing associations of all sizes and locations since formed in 2012. Helping to deliver more social housing in the UK is one of our business goals and why we  believe in finance with purpose.

Lisanne Whitaker, Financial Strategy Manager at CCHA said: Our TMS implementation was a very positive experience where we felt well supported by Centrus project management throughout. As a result, our target date for go live was reached and confidence in the system and in team members ability to use it is high.

The benefits in terms of time savings, improved accuracy and reporting, and better controls were apparent within the first month following going live.
Gilles Bonlong, Head of System Implementation at Centrus commented: Centrus is thrilled to welcome CCHA as a TITAN treasury™ Management System client, building on our established role as retained treasury advisor.

Through the use of technology CCHA is now well placed to achieve a more efficient treasury function, including improved data and reporting, transaction management, and risk management allowing them to focus on their core objective to deliver more affordable homes. We are pleased to have collaborated in this transformation
