Our mission

“A hard working organisation who like to have fun whilst being flexible, genuine, trustworthy and forward thinking. Above all else we are customer focussed.”

Since the launch of pad group’s first software platform in 1999, the customer has sat at the heart of all we do. pad group was launched with the simple objective of creating cloud based software to make lives easier for those managing housing in the public sector.

The software that followed has gone on to revolutionise the way in which universities, colleges, students’ unions, councils and housing associations operate. And to this day our objective remains the same. The benefits however, are even wider reaching, as our software continues to develop.

  • Building partnerships on reliability, integrity and trust
  • Developing modern, exciting, cutting-edge software
  • Provide high quality, prestigious & authoritative services
