Workforce Management Solutions in Care Homes
Workforce management software provides the means to manage your workforce where owning or managing an organisation like an elderly care home can be challenging.

SIMPLIFY – Way people work using technology

Many care home managers need to work in multiple locations and need to access information wherever they are on a choice of devices (mobile phone, tablet, laptop or desktop). Platinum Enterprise solves this using a web-based portal or a mobile management application.
According to a survey performed by Manager Complete, 70% of SME’s claim poor communication is their biggest problem due to its time-consuming nature. Having a tool that allows you to access information easily and communicate to any location, from any location, means poor communication becomes a thing of the past.
