Founded in June 2015, AssetCore develops and sells the market-leading, cloud-based Social Housing software solution of the same name, used by HAs thoughout the UK.
AssetCore is a UK registered company employing 5 people from its office in London.
Assetcore is small enough that a good understanding of who its suppliers are and what risks each might be exposed to in the context of modern slavery is possible. It also seeks to be ethical in its treatment of the environment, staff, suppliers and customers.
To that end it (constantly) examines its supply chain and re-evaluates its choice of suppliers based on
- the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015
- their ethics
- suitability, quality and price
AssetCore’s supply chain principally relates to
- the development of the solution
- the hosting of the service
- the operation of its office
- the operation of office IT infra-structure
Each material supplier has been considered for its exposure to risk of modern slavery and its likely compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This process is repeated annually in December/January.
All suppliers are expected to have a zero tolerance approach to slavery and effective controls in place to help prevent it in their business and supply chains.
AssetCore is alive to the risk of slavery. This means realising that it is prevalent in the world and being alert to the risk of providing support to it by corporate action.
AssetCore ensures that its staff are aware of the extent and the impact of slavery in the world today and both encourages them to care about it and requires them to complete a relevant charitable online quiz at the start of each year by #ANTISLAVERYDAY (Feb 15th). For each completed quiz a (small) corporate donation is made to the charity hosting the quiz, which this year is Stop The Traffik.
AssetCore is (unsurprisingly) opposed to all forms of slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and related activities. As a software provider, we consider ourselves to be at low risk of these evils directly and try to eliminate the possibility of them from our supply chain.
Our position is, we hope, clearly communicated to Team and Board and enjoys (I am certain) the full support of both.
The eagle-eyed amongst you will have observed that AssetCore does not quite meet the £36m annnual turnover threshold to be required to produce a statement however we think that all businesses should do their bit – so this is AssetCore’s statement in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
This statement was approved by the Executive Committee on 12th January 2022.
