CMO John Coldicutt explained how software rota provider Planday’s technology can help improve efficiency, achieve costs savings and help tackle the social care recruitment crisis at the Residential & Home Care Show at ExCeL London yesterday.
The CMO outlined how Planday rota software can help care home providers become more efficient and offer their workforce greater flexibility and better communication, while raising employee engagement.
“Our clients who previously spent 15-20 hours on scheduling and payroll each month now just spend less than one hour,” he said.
The Planday platform enables employees to swap shifts with people of equivalent skill sets who have not worked too many hours to avoid non-compliance and avoid overtime costs.
It’s punch in and punch out functionality offers greater transparency by enabling providers to better track employees.
Adrian Hendry, director at Avondale Care, said: “We can now communicate easily with staff either individually or in groups and that has been a huge bonus.”
Planday also helps improve employee engagement which has been linked with a reduction in patient mortality.
“By increasing efficiency and flexibility and freeing more time for training and development technology can help providers ensure they are an employer of choice,” John concluded.
