About Amber Green Consulting
We are specialists in social housing business systems and data
What We Do
Amber Green provides data visualisation, transformation and bespoke solutions to social housing organisations. Transforming the huge amounts of data held in housing management, finance and other systems into meaningful information helps improve service delivery and customer experience. Data is delivered in accessible visual forms including interactive charts, tables and maps.
We use tools including Business Objects, Microsoft SSRS and Power BI to produce reports and dashboards, and where required build datamarts or data solutions to deliver required information.
Microsoft Power BI is an exciting tool enabling development of highly interactive and accessible browser-based reports and dashboards.
We also offer Business Objects universe development and customisation, as well as system implementation and system administration services.

Amber Green provided a unique data and reporting solution using Orchard IMS and Business Objects. This enabled us to meet specific business needs for reporting on adjusted arrears data, along with many other calculated data items
As Orchard Housing has limited ability to audit data items, to measure the success of our Customer Census, we needed a system to capture snapshots of data from Orchard Housing (including bespoke items) and report on data completeness and quality over time. Amber Green delivered this for us using SQL Server and Business Objects
