Coolcare launches its latest care home management software - July 2018

CoolCare, specialist provider of care home management software, held the official launch of CoolCare4 at Europe’s largest health and social care event last month.

The Health+Care Show at London’s ExCel welcomed over 10,000 senior health and social care professionals over two days.

“The Health+Care show is easily one of the most important events in a care home’s calendar so was the perfect place for us to hold our official launch,” says Fiona Hale, Commercial Director.

“CoolCare4 is an exceptional piece of software of which we are very proud. We know that its adoption in care homes around the country will help care businesses maximise their revenues. Ultimately, that’s great news for residents as staff will have more time to spend with them and their families.”

CoolCare4 is specific to the management of care homes. It supports and manages staff rotas, time and attendance, occupancy and enquiries and has been created by a company with extensive experience in the area.

“Having had decades of developing and operating our own care home businesses, we’ve got some great insight into their management,” continues Fiona.

“We understand the challenges around staffing, and the priority of occupancy - we really get the tight margins that care homes operate within and know the importance of building positive relationships with enquirers. To that end we have created a piece of software that helps owners, managers and key team members manage more efficiently, thus improving finances and allowing staff to spend more time on care.”

According to the Office of National Statistics (ONS), in 2016 the population of the UK was 65.6 million, its largest ever; of those 18% are aged 65 and over and 2.4% aged 85 and over. Those numbers are growing year on year.

“The care home is going to become an even more important service in our society,” says Fiona. “Health and social care is under a lot of pressure from an ageing population, decreased funding and staff shortages – for us to meet and talk directly with people working in these services gives us a valuable insight into their main challenges. We know that having a well-run back-office business function is paramount and our hands-on understanding was welcomed by those we spoke with. We’re excited to be rolling out CoolCare4.”

CoolCare4 offers customers a more refined product than its predecessor, with care taken to make it as intuitive and user-friendly as possible. Available on any device with internet connection, CoolCare4 matches the realities of the modern working.

CoolCare4 Lands at the Care and Dementia Show – October 2017

Visitors to the 2017 Care and Dementia Show were eager to catch the first glimpse of CoolCare’s latest care home management product, CoolCare4.  Over 2000 people visited the show at Birmingham NEC across two days in October to see the newest innovations in health and social care.

CoolCare4 is the latest iteration of two decades of care home management software experience and is the much-anticipated successor of popular CoolCare3.  The new software will have the great features that existing customers know and love, with plenty of added extras such as a CRM-style enquiry management system, a new and improved rostering tool and intuitive inputting techniques. 

Fiona Hale, Commercial Director of LNT Software, said, “CoolCare4 has been refined to focus on our area of speciality, care home management.  We have journeyed with our sister companies through every stage of a care home’s development which gives us a unique insight into what working in care is really like.  That type of deep understanding within our team breeds a huge passion for our product which was particularly evident during the many demos at the Care Show.

We received incredible feedback from operators at the show which was impressive for our first live demos.  The team has worked extremely hard developing our product into what it is today so to hear care home operators compliment us on the intuitiveness and ease of use was music to our ears!  They are looking at CoolCare4 as a way to resolve the daily challenges faced with the administration of a care home and we are pleased that our product is already exceeding expectations.”

The Care Show is held annually at Birmingham NEC and is host to a wide range of care and dementia suppliers with the aim of building a better future for care.  This year, as well as catching a preview of CoolCare4, visitors were able to attend thought-provoking seminars, have a game of dementia friendly table tennis, and also take part in the revolutionary Virtual Dementia Tour. 

CoolCare4 is currently in the final stages of development and will be available to purchase following a thorough testing process.  Follow us on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn to keep up to date with the latest news, or book your bespoke online demo by contacting Simon Thompson on 07808 187 555.
