Leading digital care system provider Person Centred Software has been named as one of the UK’s top 50 fastest growing tech companies.
The business, which is renowned for its Mobile Care Monitoring system, was ranked 46th in the Sunday Times Sage Tech Track 100, after reporting 466% revenue growth over the last three years.
Jonathan Papworth, co-founder and director of Person Centred Software, said: “Care homes have been criticised in the media for their handling of the COVID-19 pandemic – initially for the number of infections, then for locking down and keeping families apart. The reality is that throughout this period, carers have been wonderful at helping the most vulnerable in society in incredibly challenging circumstances. We are incredibly pleased to be representing the social care sector and hope that by receiving this accolade our customers can share in our success.”
This year’s Tech Track 100 highlights the important contribution that technology companies have made to the UK during the pandemic, from supporting the NHS to enabling remote working.
Person Centred Software adapted its Mobile Care Monitoring system, an easy-to-use icon-based app, to better support staff in care environments during the pandemic, with 94% of users finding its coronavirus-specific features beneficial.
A survey carried out by the company on its customers in July found that 83% of care providers valued how well it had responded to sector and individual needs during the pandemic, with more than 87% of providers finding its coronavirus action icon useful. Furthermore, 88% of providers found its care monitor invaluable for real-time monitoring, especially as it can be accessed remotely if required.
Due to lockdown restrictions, Person Centred Software also made its Relatives Gateway feature – an online portal enabling relatives to stay in contact with their loved ones – free for sharing messages, photos and video links. This decision led to a 50% increase in usage of the feature, with over 5,200 people using it on a monthly basis at the height of the pandemic.
The Sunday Times Tech Track 100 league table ranks Britain’s 100 private tech companies with the fastest-growing sales over their last three years. It is compiled by Fast Track and published in The Sunday Times each September, with an awards dinner in November, and alumni dinners during the year.
This year’s awards will be held as a virtual event on Tuesday, 3rd November 2020 with the opportunity to interact and for one-to-one video networking.
