The Impact Response IT system was acquired a year ago and is now integrated into Apollo’s £70m repairs contract for Lambeth Living – a contract secured earlier this year. The new system has been introduced to offer advanced handheld technology that creates job transparency for clients and reliable diary management for staff. The award-winning technology can also be tailored to meet the specific requirements of individual projects and was the brainchild of Andy Cornaby, who Apollo Services recently employed as GBDM.
Duncan Forbes, MD of Apollo Services, comments on the appointment:
“Who better to help us grow our responsive repairs business than the man behind the new technology that is enabling us to create a fresh approach to maintenance? Service-driven and solution-focused, Andy reflects the values that we hold as a company. He is extremely well respected in the industry and obviously understands our systems better than anyone else. We are delighted that he has chosen to join us in growing Apollo Services nationwide.”
“I am really excited to be part of such an experienced and energetic team. Apollo Services’ people really take time to listen to clients to develop value solutions tailored to their needs, and I’m certain that is what has got them to where they are today, maintaining over 50,000 units across the country. Together, I hope we can double that figure over the next 2 years.”
Prior to joining Apollo, Andy launched and ran the successful business behind Impact Response. He subsequently held a number of senior positions within the housing industry, including Director of Central England for Mears and MD Executive Board Member for Morrison.
