Our History

ROCC was founded in 1984 by Michael Aldrich when he led a management buy-out of Rediffusion Computers. An innovator in a large number of speciality data processing techniques and processes Michael led the company until 2000. Read more of Michael Aldrich’s biography and early ROCC innovations at The Aldrich Archive.

With the year 2000 heralding a new era for the IT industry and the need to adapt and adopt the opportunities of emerging technologies, Luke Aldrich became CEO and has led the company forward to become one of the UK’s most forward thinking IT suppliers and providers of cloud first software.

Over the decades we have accumulated a wealth of experience enabling us to have successfully delivered hundreds of complex projects to the housing market. We’ve learnt about exactly what works and what doesn’t.

As one of the most experienced companies in the housing sector, our past successes play a big role in helping to continue driving our business forward, and we are proud of the journey we’ve been on with our customers.

Our experience has told us that a product and a team you can rely on, coupled with our focus on transparency, honesty, and committing to each and every one of our customers, is our recipe for success. To ROCC and our customers, success represents happy tenants, safe homes, efficient contractors and improved results for everyone we work with.

How we’ve helped

“ROCC is passionate and driven, but our relationship is what makes a difference – it’s like a family. Without them, we fail, and without us, they fail. It’s a partnership. We ask them to develop new programs and support systems for us and they will think about things and come back in no time with a simple fix.”

Thirteen Group

“The financial benefit has been incredible. In total, we have saved in the region of £750,000 within the first two years of partnering with ROCC.”

First Choice Homes

“With the fully integrated solution, there is no re-entering of data between the ROCC system, the existing House Management system and the existing financial system. Not only does this reduce the administrative overhead, it also improves data accuracy and means that management information is available in real-time.”
