Agency spend can significantly impact the bottom line of a care home. With Syncurio’s HR module, you gain valuable insights into staffing requirements and patterns, enabling you to optimise agency spend effectively.

Compliance with UK Border Agency (UKBA) Right To Work regulations is paramount for the successful operation of a care home or group.

Thankfully, Syncurio’s HR module takes the stress out of staying on track; offering robust, intelligent features to ensure you safeguard your care home’s reputation and profitability.

3. Optimise payroll management and fill shifts effeciently

Effective payroll management is another ‘must do’ when protecting the profitability of any business. Syncurio’s HR module provides a comprehensive payroll report, offering valuable insights and helps identify trends to react on. You can also streamline the process of filling empty or last-minute shifts with Syncurio’s new SMS system, which allows you to instantly communicate with available staff members and facilitate swift shift allocation. Not only does this increase accuracy on reporting but it minimises disruptions in the care you deliver – a win for you and a win for your residents.

4. Manage fees and monitor resident occupancy

Fee management plays a pivotal role in the financial success of a care home. With Syncurio’s Residents module, you can carefully manage fees and track resident occupancy status in real time. Stay informed about resident admissions, hospital transfers, and contracted beds, so you can keep on top of bed allocations and opportunity for additional revenue. By closely monitoring both fees and occupancy rates, you can make informed decisions on ways to maximise profitability all while continuing to provide top quality care.
