Sekoia, a Danish specialist in workflow automation systems for care homes, is expanding into the UK.
The company attended its first trade exhibition, the Care & Dementia Show, in Birmingham last month, following the opening of a sales and support office in London.
Sekoia’s point-of-care product is a touchscreen workflow solution for care homes with customised apps that aim to improve efficiency and enhance time for resident care.
The system includes task tracking, calendars, resident profiles and other workflow applications for within the home.
It can also communicate with people outside the care home including healthcare professionals and relatives.
Sekoia is currently being used in over 40 nursing homes in Europe and the company claims that its customers are dramatically reducing the amount of time carers have to spend on office administration.
“It has increased the quality and the amount of time spent between care taker and care giver. It has also increased employee satisfaction levels and reduced sick leave,” the company says.
Sekoia has secured funding from venture capital company Northcap, which has encouraged it to expand into the UK. Peter Middleton has been appointed as UK area sales manager, and is recruiting a full implementation team for its London office.
