Running a residential care home is a complex business, requiring a multi-tasking approach and a dedicated, organised management team. Ensuring that all key records, information and instructions are up-to-date and readily available is key to the success of a busy care facility. From administering medications and planning meals to liaising with family members and scheduling staff rotas, there are always multiple tasks to be done at any one time. Adding the support of a robust and reliable digital care management system can make all the difference and cut out a lot of the stress.
Attendance tracking software
In pre-digital days, care home staff routinely used manual clock-in systems and signing in sheets to record their comings and goings. Not only was this cumbersome and time consuming, it was also open to abuse and misunderstandings. Switching to a digital clocking in system removes the ambiguity and produces an accurate, central record for attendance management, payroll and security functions. Using attendance tracking software also helps people to analyse patterns in staff movements and timings of shifts. This enables more effective planning to be put in place and helps management to spot any problems or concerns before they become more serious.
Facial recognition software for clocking in
Our attendance tracking and clocking-in software uses the latest in facial recognition software to record staff movement at the start and end of shifts. This limits physical contact with the clocking-in device to aid hygiene management and eliminate cross infection. It also does away with the need for staff to keep electronic fobs on them at all times that can be lost or stolen. The tracking software also links directly to HR functionality that monitors attendance, breaktimes, sickness and lateness. The facial recognition software for staff clocking in works separately to visitor entry procedures, making the process quick and easy.
