Historically the company would manage shifts by manually sending out text messages to staff with a mobile. This was very time consuming, text messages took hours/days to reach everyone due to the volume and the platform used. Replies would then need to be recorded manually and updated onto a system manually. Mistakes were time consuming to rectify and the onus was always on the staff to do everything.
As the company was growing the current solution was no longer sustainable so they approached Sapere to build them a shift management app to replace the inefficient model they were using.
A bespoke web application was designed and developed capable of rendering on mobile devices. Most businesses believe they need a mobile app but with advancements in technology and more and more people being always connected to a data source means this isn’t always the case.
Building a proper mobile app is expensive and complicated and in this case unnecessary. The web app allows the company to manage shifts and automatically send out text notifications to all its members.
Those members need an account but can manage all their shifts using their mobile or tablet/laptop/PC with a data connection or wifi connection in real-time.
This is a cost effective bespoke solution that works really well for the business.
The following business benefits have been realised by North East Nursing & Care Services since the app development went live.
