Geoff Higgins, CEO of Decision Time, said: “Melin Homes is one of the premier housing associations in Wales and it has chosen to manage its meetings, risks and strategic objectives through our secure, all-in-one, easy to use platform. Our solution allows Melin Homes to practice good governance and transform strategic objectives into positive action, with no need for separate board portals, risk registers, or objective management software.

“Organisations are increasingly prioritising good corporate governance and risk management and are looking for a solution to help them manage these and their strategic performance all in one place. As a result, Decision Time has experienced unprecedented demand; both those using a solution like ours for the first time, and from those opting for Decision Time as a replacement for global competitor solutions. So this has been a record year for Decision Time, and we are looking confidently to 2022 for further significant revenue growth.”
