Driving Performance Improvement Through Sharing Business Intelligence

The PI Club helps members run their social housing businesses by providing relevant and easy to access business intelligence.

Following widespread consultation with a number of Finance Directors from across the housing sector, we have developed a membership club to drive performance improvement.

Our members include Directors from some of the UK’s leading Housing Associations.

Our Aims

Bring together like minded Senior Directors

Share strategic and relevant operational performance information

Achieve genuine performance improvement

Provide peer learning and access to experts

Deliver and exceed regulators requirements

Take the pain out of traditional benchmarking

“The PI Club truly puts its members in charge of the agenda and has an organic feel to it. We get real insight into relevant business issues from people who have been involved at the sharp end of major business change projects. This moves the debate on from the theoretical to the practical, and we can all learn from each other.”

Simon Hatchman

Executive Director of Finance, PA Housing

“This is what the sector has been needing for years.”

Phil Elvy

Executive Finance Director, Great Places Housing Group

“I can finally compare Genesis to those housing providers that like us are engaged in complex multi tenures businesses, this along with the creation of the “Global Accounts Plus” database enables a wide comparison across many providers, not just our club members. This enables us to make informed decisions to improve our financial performance in the coming year.”

Elizabeth Froude

Deputy Chief Executive, Resources, Genesis Housing Association

“We share and discuss performance information with our peers to identify where management efforts should be focused. The club listens to its members to produce the information we need to influence the future direction of our business.”

Glen Harris MBE

Executive Director of Corporate Resources, Midland Heart

"Before we joined the PI Club I don’t think we had ever really used benchmarking properly. Up to that point we carried out reviews but often failed to act on the information. Membership of the PI Club helped us use benchmarking as a can-opener to look at why we had been doing things one way and make changes where necessary."

Steve Wood

Finance Director, Onward Homes

“If you are thinking of joining the PI Club, my advice would be, to work out exactly what it is you think you need and then chat to Vantage. My experience tells me that they will deliver.”

Guy Millichamp

Director of Finance at Yorkshire Housing

“The information that we obtained through the PI club provided us with some valuable insight into the costs we were paying for our Kitchen and Bathroom replacement programmes, which in turn helped to set some clear expectations of the results we should be seeing as a result of a re-procurement exercise.

Without this intelligence we might have been content with cost savings of c5-10%, but the PI benchmarking data identified that costs savings of c20% should be achievable, and the eventual outcome of the re-procurement  was in line with those more informed expectations.”
